Tauer Perfumes Orange Star ~ new fragrance

Tauer Perfumes Orange Star

Andy Tauer of Tauer Perfumes will be making a public appearance at Scent Bar (the brick 'n mortar arm of Luckyscent) in Los Angeles on Saturday, April 17 from 1 to 4 pm for the US debut of his new fragrance, Orange Star.

A rich citrus fragrance with a clean orange flower in its heart.

The natural essential oils of clementine and red mandarine render the fragrance all fresh and natural, and add to the unique vitality of the head notes.

The citrus notes give room to lemongrass essential oil: With its unique hesperidic earthiness it bridges to the heart of the fragrance. There, a clean orange flower chord is central, with a hint of translucent violet flowers that support the vibrant and elegant heart notes.

The base of the fragrance mirrors the vibrancy and clean lightness of the heart. The body of the fragrance is centered on elegant ambergris, with a hint of soft woods. It plays with a fine vanilla line, a hint of patchouli and is enriched with a drop of a natural resin from cistus, known as Ambreine.

Tauer Perfumes Orange Star is in Eau de Parfum, and I will update with the size and price when I can find them. (via press release)

Update: Orange Star is $120 for 50 ml Eau de Parfum.

    DROOOOOOOL when when when when when? NEED!

    • SmokeyToes says:

      I second that! This sounds lovely. I love clementine, orange flower and violet flowers….. and patchouli and ambergris. Have to try this for sure!

    • Robin says:

      I think the plan is to be shipping by May 1st … sorry, should have said that in the article!

  2. dissed says:

    That sounds beautiful, especially with the ambergris and resin. And that reminds me, I don’t have a citrus scent. Must sample.

    • Robin says:

      It does sound beautiful, and I just adore the new bottle.

  3. boojum says:

    Jealous of those who have the opportunity to go. To think, I could be there, but instead will be stuck at not one, but TWO consecutive kindergarten birthday parties. :O See Joe, you HAVE to go!

    • Robin says:

      Ouch on the bday parties. But all the same I sort of miss those days.

    • CynthiaW says:

      Do you have to stay at the parties? I don’t remember parents staying when I was a kid – maybe one or two of the host mom’s best friends, but not everyone’s mom.

      • boojum says:

        If the party were at their home, I wouldn’t, but I just don’t think 2-3 adults can keep track of that many kids at places like Chuck E. Cheese or a roller skating rink. Especially when mine is the kid likely to fall and break a limb.

        • Daisy says:

          I always stayed at parties…..I like to keep an eye on things….it doesn’t hurt that I can tie balloon animals and am an expert face-painter….yes that’s right it’s my “claim to fame” —I always had the longest waiting line for face painting at the school fairs…even when other stations were line-free! Ha! Ok, ok…doesn’t help much on a resume, but the kids sure liked me! :-)

        • CynthiaW says:

          Hmm… I can see that – although I would make every bargain on the planet to keep from having to stay at Chuck E. Cheese. That place gives me the heebie jeebies.

          • boojum says:

            I trade off with my husband as much as possible. I use excuses like “I hate water” (when it’s a swimming party) or “I don’t know the parents” (when it’s somewhere else I don’t want to go – he knows I’m social phobic). But, it’s wildfire season, so he’ll be working.

  4. jepster says:

    When, when, when will Andy come to this coast. (Like Dustin Hoffman in TOOTSIE refering to NYC–”This is a coast, too!”) Love Andy’s new look–on his blog, he has been great about sharing stories of how it came about and the suspenseful wait for the new bottles to arrive from France. They are terrific and I can’t wait for this new “orange juice” –must have some.

    • romaayden says:

      Andy Tauer came to NYC about maybe two years ago to Aedes I believe it was for the Incense Rose debut (could be wrong about which frag) but he was there and I purchased the Incense Rose then and there. I am heartbroken that Aedes has discontinued carrying his line since about November 2009.

      • Robin says:

        I did not even know they’d stopped carrying it, but you’re right, all they have right now is Vetiver Dance. Shame.

  5. RusticDove says:

    This sounds gorgeous. I’ve been obsessed with citrus lately, orange blossom in particular, and I can’t wait to try this!

  6. jirish says:

    Can’t wait to try this and love the new bottle! I wonder if all of his scents will be in this new bottle shape now and if all will be the color blue.

    • jirish says:

      Oops! Just saw the video and I guess they will all be blue.

      • Robin says:

        Yep, that’s now the brand bottle!

  7. Tama says:

    Andy has teased us with this for MONTHS! I can’t wait to try it.

    • Robin says:

      LOL…in some ways, it’s best not to know too far in advance!

      • Daisy says:

        egad! ain’t that the truth! —shades of the Havana Vanille debacle
        ***shuddering***

  8. Haunani says:

    This sounds wonderful! Another for the must-test list. Thanks, Robin. I think. ;-)

    • Robin says:

      Yeah, exactly…you may not want to thank me.

  9. Rappleyea says:

    Bottle is gorgeous and the perfume is a definite must smell!

    • Robin says:

      I adore that bottle.

  10. sharviss says:

    I am SO excited for this! I don’t have an Orange Blossom scent – maybe this will be it?!

    • Robin says:

      Oh, you must get at least one!

  11. What a great bottle ! This sounds like an exciting new fragrance. All Andy’s fragrances are so unique and complex, so full of surprises. It will be thrilling to experience the progression of this one, too.

    I’m jazzed :)

    • Robin says:

      Hope you’ll like it!

  12. HopeB says:

    That sounds lovely–especially the woods, vanilla and Ambreine.

    • Robin says:

      It all sounds good to me.

  13. sunsetsong says:

    This sounds absolutely lovely. I love all the Tauer line with the exception of Le Maroc pour elle which will be on the evil Bay to part fund my acquisition of this! Can’t wait.

    • Robin says:

      Oh, good idea — sell one to get the other.

  14. Julia says:

    Great new bottle. I see one in my future. His style of unisex and masculine fragrances work well on me and I love his rose scents. I just bought Incense Rose in what is now the “classic presentation.” :)

    • Robin says:

      LOL…now that bottle is a collector item!

  15. Joe says:

    Any other readers from Southern California planning to be there?

    • Robin says:

      *is jealous*

      • Daisy says:

        **is also jealous**

        • Julia says:

          I’m trying to get an architect friend of my dad’s to go for me!

    • kalynna says:

      I will certainly try to be there!

  16. hongkongmom says:

    STUNNING bottle and blend of orange flower….wow

    • Robin says:

      Hope it lives up to everyone’s lemmings!

  18. maggiecat says:

    Like so many of you, I’ve really been into citrus, and I love orange blossom…I can’t to try this!

  19. maggiecat says:

    …can’t wait that is…:-)

  20. parfumnut says:

    This is “GORGEOUS”. he has done it again. I received my bottle from LS yesterday and the whole packaging is awesome including that beautiful bottle and the juice smells lovely, can’t stop sniffing my wrist.
