Fragrances - Andy Tauer - Andy Tauer's Incense Extreme

5.0

This is a sensual yet elegant skin scent. With a name like Incense Extreme, I expected something loud with tons of sillage. However this resides quietly and tenaciously near the body. I am fascinated by Andy Tauer's signature openings that are scintillating or effervescent and seem to ride a vertical current straight up my nose. This opens with the same ride driven by a dry peppery …Read more

Dry Shampoo - TIGI - Dirty Secret Rockaholic Dry Shampoo

A dry shampoo will NEVER give you the results of a wet shampoo. That's a given. What I expect is oil absorption, lift, decent smell and no silicones (my routine is Devacare, silicone and sulfate-free). I just want to get by one more day before having to really wash. After trying a couple drugstore brands that in retrospect had silicone (which requires washing out with stronger, drying …Read more

In my search for the gentlest shampoo for my prescription medication damaged hair, I came across the Devacare line. I ended up with both Devacare Lo Poo and Devacare No Poo shampoos. Both require gentle but thorough friction at the scalp to achieve clean hair. Here's the difference.
Lo Poo has is a clear shampoo with the scent of orange. It builds a touch of lather, yet when it rinses …

Jan/18/2012

I'm in my 40's, Asian with dry skin, fine wrinkles in the usual places, some mild blemishes from sun damage and scarring (I'm a picker). I have tough skin. In my 30's I started on renova, eventually moving up to retin A with excellent results. Then at some point the benefits seemed to wear off. I've been lax with my skincare in the last 8 years aside from occasional …Read more

This scent is a revelation.
In my set of samples direct from Tauer, he included a card sprayed with this, sealed in plastic and signed by hand. I opened the plastic envelope and the strange and intoxicating aroma went straight up my nose, bursting through my head much like a potent bite of wasabi goes right up your sinuses. But this is so much more bewitching and gentle. My initial surprised …

Nov/12/2011

I had this oil in my regular nighttime rotation for a few years. I think I took it for granted. Once I ran out, I decided not to buy again. By that time I was using jojoba oil regularly and figured it was a cheaper and equally good option when I felt I needed 'oil'. I missed the heavenly smell of Santal, but i figured quality oil was quality oil. Now that summer is over and winter …Read more

I came to musks from my childhood memories of babysitters in the 70's likely wearing Jovan or Coty musks. I loved the scent, the memory, the era. So eventually I hit the Walgreens' counter and experimented with the same but was always sorely disappointed. The scents were thin and evanescent. Then in the last few years I discovered MUA and all the obscure scents I would never EVER …Read more

this fragrance is nothing like that fabulous description below with ferrets and seals and Zsa Zsa Gabor mentioned. but I can't say i'm disappointed. it's a wonderful campfire in late fall, with sandalwood incense burning right up front and a warm cup of chai in front of your nose. there are no animals here, just trees and earth. no aging celebrities or aftershave. nothing retro …Read more
