Smoking pipes, golden dark rum glistening in fine glassware, the clink of iced rocks against the glass walls, a room filled with histories and stories of travels far and wide, and the only aroma that fills the space between the walls is intense and smoky and balsamic and rich.

Incense Rosé 06 according to me is the quintessential male scent, though I am not sure whether Tauer intended for it to be so starkly masculine, considering that its been marked as a unisex scent. Though I do not picture myself wearing it or can imagine the type of woman that can pull off this extreme scent.
This is not a preppy one and neither is it aged or antiquated, it is fresh and sweet, heavily intoxicating owing to its boozy profile, it’s a bitter citrus laced with smokiness that’s both rustic and distinguished at the same time.
I have found that when a male scent appeals to me, I am able to articulate it with a lot of fervor and emotion…and Andy Tauer’s 06 is making my imagination and words flow.
The opinions may be divided on this but I love the medicinal vibe thanks to a sharp citrus opening, heavy with cardamom accords that lend a richness to the scent. There are some wonderful animalic accords from Castoreum and the rose is very smoky in Incense Rosé. The interplay of resinous sweet accords mixed with a spiciness creates a complex harmony.
Gift it to your man….and hope that he wears it well, because if he does then you are in for a wonderful treat.
