Today we have another special edition Monday Question where we pitch two brands against one another.
This time the two Swiss indie brands Vero Profumo by Vero Kern and Tauer Perfumes by Andy Tauer are up for your decision.
Which line do you prefer? What perfumer gets your vote? Are you a Tauer fan or is life without Vero impossible for you?
One or the other – you must choose!
(Please be aware that this is all in good fun, we love them both and bear no ill will towards any indie brand!)
My answer is easy in that case, but not because I love the one and not the other… let me explain.
I choose Vero Profumo, because I adore the perfumes and the woman behind them. I can’t live without Onda in my perfume closet, I love nothing more than Rubj in summer, Kiki is a lovely and lively choice whenever I want to travel to Paris in my mind and Mito is perfection year-round, no matter where or when, it is always the right choice.
I have been less lucky with Tauer Perfumes, because – woe is me – I am allergic to a good many of them. I love the contemplative stillness of Incense Extreme, the wide vista opening in my mind’s eye that Incense Rosé provides and Une Rose Vermeille is the perfect fruity-floral on the highest level. Unfortunately, I can’t wear them. The strong concentration of naturals seem to be too much for my skin, maybe there is some common ingredient to all of them that is the culprit, I don’t know. I have to admire them from afar.
So what about you? Which Swiss genius gets your vote?
