The Scoop

If Andy Tauer's masterpiece L’Air du Desert Marocain evokes the open spaces of a boundless desert sky racing above our heads, then Au Coeur du Desert, based on the original cult classic, is its heart - a quietly beating center of gravity bound to the earth. Although it shares with its progenitor the same dry crackle of cedar and resin, Au Coeur is an altogether more intimate affair, with a melting softness that envelops rather than exalts.

Au Coeur du Desert is a luxurious extrait that uses higher concentrations of the keynote ingredients that gave the original L’Air its soul: coriander, cumin, patchouli, cedar, ambergris, and resin. To our noses, Au Coeur has a smoother quality of patchouli, warmer woods, and a higher dose of ambergris, its salted golden warmth throwing all the other notes into stark relief. In terms of texture, Au Coeur is dense silk to L’Air’s smoke.

Those who love L’Air du Desert Marocain will be relieved to find clear echoes in Au Coeur, but those who found the original too dramatic will be delighted to find a version built on a more human scale. The DNA is intact, but its light is more the hazy glow of dusk rather than the glare of the midday sun, while still remaining unmistakably, wonderfully, quintessentially Andy Tauer.

Here's what other people are saying about Au Coeur du Desert...
This has the richness and depth of LADDM but with an ever so slightly sweeter, softer tone. The amber/woody dryness is spectacular as with LADDM. Nothing given up in terms of longevity and sillage, as expected of a Tauer. I use them interchangeably. There's a reason this is a "Best of 2016" it is an outstanding scent (IMHO)!

I would say this is a kinder/gentler version of L’Air du Desert Marocain, softer and rounder around the edges. Like it's brother, it is VERY long lasting and actually has many of the same notes, just a bit less harsh. for fans of Tauer, for sure I'd give this one a sniff. I put it on this morning and my whole office is filled with the dusky remnants floating around the room. I still love L'Air the best, but this one might win more friends. High quality as all Tauer scents and a bit more user friendly than L'Air with many of the same echoes.

Lovely, but STRONG! A real sillage monster. It's a rich, earthy oriental, and yes, with the Tauer signature of resin, particularly the creosote tree resin that the Sonoran desert is known for. I've passed up a lot of Tauer's fragrances because I'm not a fan of that smokey, tarry smell in his perfumes, but this one is better balanced (for me.) If you like a bold, long-lasting fragrance, this is it. It IS lovely, it IS long-lasting, but I'm not a big sillage fan, and this has a sillage so big that it fills my entire living space.
