Launched in 2010 by Andy Tauer, Eau d'Épices is described on his website as “An Indian basket of spices with cinnamon, cardamom, clove and corriander with red mandarines.” It’s that but so much more.
It opens with warm cinnamon bark and anisic cardamom joined by clove and coriander. The clove has a medicinal aspect to it that adds a coolness to the scent. Red mandarins add a citrus note that tempers the spices perfectly making them soft and subtle.
As it blooms, orange blossom, jasmine and orris root at the heart come forward. The earthy orris root changes the character of the orange blossom from innocent to sensuous. The addition of indolic jasmine makes it almost wanton. These florals move in and out shimmering against the lingering whiffs of the spices and that medicinal note that just hangs suspended over it all.
It rests on a base of base of woody labdanum, tempered with ambergris, sweetened slightly with tonka bean and deepened with vetiver. The drydown is cool and dry, the spices subtle yet rich – not nearly as spicy and warm as you might expect to be. This is the perfect frag for cooler weather.
Notes: cinnamon, cardamom, clove, coriander, red mandarins, orange blossom, jasmine, orris root,incense, cistus ladaniferus resin, ambergris, tonka bean and vetiver.
