rbaker's Review of Au Coeur du Desért by Tauer

The opening blast is a feast of amber - rich, intense and with a slightly sweet hint. There is whiff of citrus traceable in the first moment, but the amber rules the roost, and continues doing so for near the whole development. There is evidently a considerable contribution of a patchouli component, adding a dark and smoky effect, although it is not extremely harsh, like, for instance, Tom Ford's Purple Patchouli. Still, it has its edginess and crispness.

Down the track some nonspecific woodsy impression comes and goes, but a times touches of a cypress shine through. A touch of a very artificial ambergris makes an appearance at times.

I get strong sillage, excellent projection, and seven hours of longevity on my skin.

As a amber scent this is very niche, including in the way the patchouli is applied. The rest is less impressive, but the performance is very good. Is displays considerable similarities with L'Air du Desert Marocain for the same House, but is a bit less nuanced that L'Air. Overall 3.25/5
