This 'N That again...

First off, Orange Star does bloom when sprayed. It's deeper, richer and has notable ambergris and that "Tauerade" finish that dabbing shows less. It's lovely; a departure for him blending the sparkly bright citrus with just a touch of the mechanic. Oh, and the lasting power is great, so much so that I don't even have to add "for a citrus". Mr. Tauer is a very nice man who as always is open to chatting to all, and g-d love him loves California enough to camp out. Like in a tent. In the desert.
Since my experience in Camp leans toward Joan and/or Bette I will leave him to that. But then, that's why I create spreadsheets and Powerpoints and he creates fragrances...
He also previewed his fragrance coming in Oct, a lovely spicy number that plays with the notion of spice in the same way that Reverie au Jardin played with expectations of lavender.
I did smell a couple of other things, previewing two new Commes des Garcons scents that must be jokes I'm not getting.
One of the things that LuckyScent carries is Panhaligons, the veddy veddy British line. I only spritzed three, the sharp, bright Blenheim Bouquet, the eponymous (and perfect) Lily of the Valley and English Fern, which couldn't be more refreshing if it were served on the rocks.
Orange Star is shipping in May and will be $120 for 50ML. Blenheim Bouquet and Lily of the Valley are $110, while English Fern is $125. All three are 100ML I have no idea about the C de G.
