gimmegreen's Review of Une Rose Chyprée by Tauer

A rose so heavily bracketed by the spice and citrus at the top and the labdanum rich resinous base, that it's actually not quite a rose anymore. The overwhelming impression I am left with is of something pleasurable, wearable, warm and dense but somewhat undifferentiated, once the notes have blended after the first few minutes. Leaning more heavily in the ‘oriental' direction and with good tenacity yet contained sillage, it's not in the Tauer top ranks for me. The main drawback is the density – everything seems so thoroughly blended that it misses an enlivening quality, slumping on the sofa rather than kicking its heels.
