Une Rose Vermeille (a scarlet rose) is Andy Tauers “Homage to Roses”. The perfume features top notes of lemon, bergamot, and lavender; a heart of rose, violet, and raspberry and a base of vanilla, sandalwood, tonka bean, and ambergris.
This is one Tauer fragrance that agrees with me without reservations.
It has a lemony, herbaceaous start, with a rose, a very red one present from the beginning, there is a hint of something salty, something dusty, and then slowly warmth emerges from the base through tonka and vanilla. The distinctive raspberry note in the heart makes the rose even redder and a bit sweeter, but without veering into the edible. I get the feeling of a very assertive, self-confident rose. There is something indestructible about it. It is unbent by the elements, eternally fresh and red and undamaged, preternaturally luminous, a hyper-rose, in a good way. The base anchors it through the earthiness of the ambergris.
I could use some of that rose’s traits…
It is available in 30ml Eau de Parfum (for example at www.Tauerperfumes.com)
