Here's what other people are saying about L'Air du desert marocain...
This scent smells so wonderfully different. Not too light or too heavy. I know no one else around me is wearing it and I feel very lovely wearing this fragrance. Had to buy a FB so I could smell fabulously different in the presence of others. Got to be an individual but feel beautiful at the same time. Not a feminine scent yet I feel very feminine wearing this fragrance.

This is a beautiful, inviting scent. It is as evocative of a Moroccan desert adventure as it is a warm and cozy night snuggled by the fireplace. What does it smell like? Like the dream of a sweet memory of a moment that has yet to be lived.

It takes you on a journey to the spice markets of the far east. Trust me, a little goes a long way. One spray will stay on all day. Seductive and Sensuous. A must buy!

It took me a long time to warm up to this scent, but I eventually did, and then decided to purchase the EDT and also the solid (directly from Tauer). Although I love the fragrance, the performance is terrible, and the atomizer isn’t much better; perhaps it’s flawed as it projects a small, inconsistent spray. What a disappointment...

I love this scent. I've purchased several bottles over the past few years, directly from Tauer. The scent - on me - smells very much like incense, sandalwood, ceder and nag champa, in the best mix. The floral scents tend to fade on me quickly, so I can't speak to those. There is a bit of sweetness to this, but it is NOT overpowering at all. It keeps this in the realm of "day or night", rather than "night" only. Tauer perfumes are lovely. This is the only scent, other than Cartier L'heure fourgeuouse, that I've bought more than twice.

After reading Tania Sanchez's review, I was prepared for this fragrance to blow my mind with it's stunning evocation of a supersaturated desert. Instead, I got canvas tent. Which isn't to say that I don't love it, just that sometimes I worry those proximate will wonder about where I've been in the last 24 hours...

The opening is so interesting-- dry and airy and warm with hints of grass, incense, and dried flowers, and then dries down to something plasticine, acidic, and powdery that lasts forever and is impossible to scrub off. I tried it over the course of a week just to make sure but no. I'm so confused and disappointed.

I was SO excited to try this! I am forever on the search of spicy, mysterious, otherworldly scents and everyone just raves about this, but this is terrible to me. It's synthetic, metallic, yuck. No warmth at all. I just hate it. I blind bought a full bottle at full price and sold on ebay at a huge discount.

Oh the lasting power on this one!!! This is so often the factor that lets me down. And it's not that i mind reapplying scents I love. But they either go away like a flash so I practically need to carry it in my pocket, or they turn into something that becomes weird when I add a fresh spritz. This warm dry, absolutely fascinating scent is a winner.

My mum and I both really appreciated this perfume (a 0.7ml sample), however I find it a bit too acidic and a bit too sweet at the same time. That said, it is deliciously incense-y and it gets much better as it wears on. The rockrose is definitely detectable. It's powerful and long-wearing. I dabbed some on a wrist before heading to the gym this morning, so maybe my sweat levels influenced its scent, but after a heavy workout, thorough shower and a few hours in the office, it's still going strong. I'm surprised by all the people saying it's more masculine than unisex - I'd have swung it much more to feminine myself. But with few exceptions, I reckon almost all perfume is fairly unisex.

It's too much in so many directions - too sweet, too dry and dusty, there's too much amber for my liking, too much of something synthetic that makes my eyes water and throat itch. If it learned how to whisper or developed a deeper voice, and not yell/sing obnoxiously in high notes, I'd like it more. Still, I see why a lot of people (including my wife) like it, but it's not a good match for me. It was a blind buy.

What can I say...oozy, creamy, mysterious and above all sensual. This scent is full of richness that settles into a creamy warm bath of lushness...

For me, this is a winner and FB worthy. If you close your eyes and imagine a warm desert evening fading into a cool night... yeah, that's where this takes me. In an artistic and perfumery-type way. The way it should. I wear this, like anything else, for me. Which is good, because others have given this mixed reviews when I wear it, ranging from "this smells really nice" to "you smell like wet, possibly rotting, firewood." To be honest, I still don't see where that interpretation of the frag came from, but.... it was said, so I have to consider it as a possibility of what others may think of it. To me though, I enjoy it and will keep wearing it - probably just limit the sprays, especially in the heat.

Along with Felanilla, this is the fragrance that changed my understanding of what perfumery could accomplish, and a decade later it’s still a revelation to me -- dry desert air and limitless sky above, but as you move through it the space is described by burlap sacks of spices, paving stone, sandblasted cedar, and the sweetness of flowers just outside your vision. Legendary.

Let me add my chorus of praise along with the rest. The balance of this exotic scent is perfect on me - and most of the notes mentioned are right there - the incense and spices mixed with what seems to me a feminine flair of the jasmine and the rose. I got no vanilla oddly enough, since I read complaints of pure vanilla from other reviewers. My main regrets are (to me) the homeliness of the bottle - this perfume deserves so much better! and of course the price. I'm saving up since we can only get a big bottle, but just a bit of this exotic treasure is pleasingly long-lasting. Andy, I could kiss you!

Been wearing it since 07 and will be until Andy discontinues it and by that time i have an ample lot stashed:-) ...the scent remains the same....i suggest read the other reviews as they're more eloquent , but my nose doesn't lie and will always reckon the scent that evokes gratification. If the notes were musical, it would accentuate beethoven's 9th symphony....total senses stimulation. Oh yeah, and let's not forget the Cabernet.

By far, this is the BEST fragrance I ever sampled! It's not a fragrance it's an experience. The notes are blended to absolute perfection. For me it's AMBER, AMBER, AMBER ... all the other notes are dancing in and out mysteriously in the background. You will definitely be transported to Marocain Desert where all these notes are floating in the Air ... hence the name. On a fall night out at an out door gala, this fragrance will be a stunner! Full bottle worthy!

I was a bit skeptical but ordered a sample based on all the glowing reviews. This is a masterpiece (and I don't use that word everyday). It will transport you to another world; peaceful, serene, almost numbing. I read on Tauer's website that he never apprenticed under anyone else, but with a fragrance this great he didn't need to.

On me, this dries down to amber, and I confess to not detecting any of the other notes. I'm not complaining though. I enjoy complex fragrances, but the simplicity of this one is comforting. Very warm, not overly sweet (I'm not sorry the vanilla hides on me), dry but not spicy or woody. Just really nice amber, subtle, close to the skin. I'm not getting much silage, but the longevity is good. Eight hours after a light application it's still there. Another person remarked on how linear this fragrance is -- and I agree. To me this is a little more feminine than masculine, but it could still be very nice on a man. Definitely worth buying another sample, maybe a bottle.

This frag is dry and incense-y. It's soothing, and beautiful. The light note of lemon and ceder combine to smell very much like frankincense to me. I very much agree with the description from the creator. Mostly dry, hints of the market flowers, hint of the flinty dry smell of a the desert sands. Recommended
