Lucky 7: Andy Tauer Zeta

By Tom

I'm just about the last person I think to write about this new scent from Swiss perfumer Andy Tauer. We here at PST are fans of his and for me his latest did not disappoint. It opens with sparking citrus: lemon, orange and bergamot that's so wonderful you want it served like champagne. Ice cold in a flute. Neroli and linden form the heart: neroli young and springlike and linden with its surprisingly human aspect to it. Sandalwood, orris and vanilla combine with the salty linden to create just a touch of his signature "Tauerade" in the drydown.

It's a cliche I guess to write of a scent as "Summer in a bottle". It isn't to exemplify the ideal, as Zeta does.

$150 for 50ML at

My sample was from LuckyScent.

Does it last, Tom? And does the drydown maintain some of the sparkle? I'm trying to visuatlize, I mean olifactorilize, it.

It has pretty decent lasting power, 4 to 6 hours. and the drydown does give a memory of the opening sparkle.

Just ordered a sample! Y'all wore me down with all the sparkle, sparkle, gentle honey linden summer talk.

Oh my gosh, Tom, WAAAAANT! What a lemming of a review... and shame on you, I'm supposed to be being good.

Your review almost sent me to the Tauer website to purchase a full bottle unsniffed. How much longer can I withstand the Zeta lure???

As I'm not a Tauer expert, could you please tell me if the "Tauerade" signature is what you smell in Orange Star drydown, for example?

I loved the opening of this one, but then it seemed to turn into a quite skin scent, which I don't find with other Tauers at all. Is there something wrong with my receptors?

Ducks- Sorry! Can't help it!

It's a sort of human, sweet/sour base that's slightly oily smelling. Just slightly. I like it a lot.

I think that's the linden. some people really don't like the smell of linden trees. google it to see what I mean
