Giveaway: Tauer Advent Calendar & Musings on Perfumes to Be Confused

First things first: We are honored to participate for the 6th consecutive year in the Advent Calendar of Tauer Perfumes. You know what this means: prizes by Andy Tauer!!! The winner can pick an Explorer Set from Tauer, 3 x15ml fragrances of scents of your choice! Cool, if you ask me.  (it even gives the choice on some of the less popular but quite interesting in my books Vetiver Dance, Incense Extreme, Carillon pour un Ange, Zeta, or Noontide Petals, among many others such as the gorgeous and limited Phi Rose de Kandahar or the modern classic Une Rose Chypree.
Enter a comment on this post, below, to be eligible.
[NB. Limitations/shipping restrictions apply. Find them on bottom of this post].


And now on to musings on something that happened to me recently and put me into thinking.

I smelled a GORGEOUS scent on a very efficient and smart lady the other day. She was wafting it copiously, but the scent wasn't at all "thick" nor "cloying", it trailed beautifully as we walked through a gallery display, she guiding me, I listening attentively, distracted only by the amazing sillage. Initially I thought it was something along the lines of Teatro alla Scala (Krizia) which is a beautiful spicy oriental with a rich, satiating citrusy top note that I know pretty well, own and wear myself (and was wondering whether this is the trail I leave behind!). The lady in question was munching on a juicy mandarin at the time, too, as she was showing me around.
Before parting I had to confirm. I asked, point blank. Turns out it was .....Aromatics Elixir (which I otherwise recognize immediately on other people, I am practically surrounded by it, Athens adores this fragrance), her "signature for 20 years", as she added. Plus juicy mandarin orange...

And I got thinking. Much has been made of the growing resemblance of Aromatics Elixir by Clinique to (parent company) Lauder's Youth Dew and orientals in general. Maybe there's a bit of truth there, though I always remembered AE as very patchouli rich and powdery-mossy, and still do. But surely there are other elements at play and I assume we all have gotten confused as to what someone wears at a given moment, even if it is something we know perfectly well and could otherwise pinpoint.
Do you have such examples? What was it that confused you and what did you confuse it with? I'd love to read in the comments.   

LIMITATIONS: The draw is worldwide. Some exceptions apply: Italy, Spain, Croatia, Russia, Greece (Swiss FedEx cannot ship there). The prizes will be shipped for free from Switzerland, through FedEx. Local taxes, VAT, and import fee may apply and are not covered by Tauer. The winner is responsible to make sure that they are allowed to import the prize.

    It is very true about fragrances there has been times when I smelt one on someone and been adamant in knowing what it is, however when asking the person it turns out to be something totally different. This is what intrigues me about fragrance I don't take this as a negative but as a positive as there are so many possibilities you have to find the one that works best with your body chemistry. Please can you also enter me into the competition thank you

  2. Please include me in the Tauer advent calendar draw! Very exciting!
    As to the AE, it has fooled me a few times too. I have a friend that wears it and it smells amazing on her. I find that what I have been smelling previously really has an effect on what stands out more. I have tried numerous scents like Mitsouko that smell very different to me after having sniffed something like Eau d'Hadrien as opposed to Mona di Orio's Jabu.

  3. Unbelievable! Croatia sucks. :) (that's my personal user experience opinion) ;)

    That said, Tauer is not the only company not shipping to Croatia which I luckily managed to circumvent by having lovely colleagues in Slovenia. :)
    So please enter me in the wonderful draw.

    Your post is making me retry AE. It was a blind buy that I didn't love on myself. I do think all the classic Lauder scents are chameleons that take a good long dry down to develop. I'd never buy them if I went by the initial blast!

    A couple of years ago I wore Clinique Simply (I think I went through 2 bottles)so when I smelled something nice and warm on someone else, I thought that was it and I told her so. She looked at me like I was crazy and told me it was Kenzo Amour. Which doesn't really smell anything like Simply. So maybe it was other scented things she wore at the time, her skin...

  6. Thanks for giving us the chance to participate in this draw Elena and Andy. I often don't identify perfumes worn by others (men or women)... and I almost never ask, so I end up staying confused and wondering all the time, especially when it's scents I like! (Maybe I should learn to pluck up the courage and ask from now on ;-))

    I'm not great at identifying perfumes on other people. I remember once being particularly surprised to find out that someone was wearing Poison, as it smelled lovely on her but genuinely poisonous on me.

  8. Thanks for hosting the 10th day of the Advent calendar, Elena! And thanks to Andy for the great idea!
    You got me into deep thoughts...I suppose I had a lot of confusions at the beginning of my fragrant journey. And I still have them, especially with the ubiquitous rose-patchouli combo. However, one of the most striking confusions was the one with an unexpectedly cheap fragrance. I was in Marburg, and a friend from the company was wearing something dominant, distinctive. My nose was intrigued, and I asked her about the scent. She smiled and winked - I won't tell, can you guess? Well, I started speculating about niche masculine fragrances. It was fresh, but without citrus or lavender, pungent and subtly sweet, definitely chypre, grassy-woody-spicy, but chypre. Synaesthetically smelling like the white-red-blue Tommy Hilfiger outfit. Imagine my surprise when she finally told me, it was Christian Lacroix Rouge for Avon! I got it immediately when I came back in Bulgaria, but it still doesn't smell like that on me...

    I think perhaps there are fragrances like Angel which are so individual (and ubiquitous) that we can recognise them on any other person regardless of skin chemistry. But my sister put on Dries van Noten and all my guesses were wrong. Handing in my perfumista badge.

  10. I teach at a university, so I inevitably notice the popular fragrance trends among younger folks. If I am not sure what I am detecting, sometimes I will ask them what they're wearing.

    A year or so after Burberry Brit was ubiquitous, I thought I noticed it again. I was waiting for a train, and the young woman next to me smelled lovely, like lime and vanilla, and something else.

    It must be Burberry Brit, I thought. But it's not quite right - perhaps I am misremembering.

    So I turned to her and said "Is that Burberry Brit you're wearing?"

    She looked down her nose at me and said "Oh no way. Eau de Shalimar."

    ReplyDelete
  11. I can't usually place a fragrance when I smell it on someone (especially nowadays when everything seems to draw from the same tiny pool of components) but there are some scents so distinctive that I've recognized them instantly on someone: a few years ago I smelled Rochas Byzance on a woman in London and (although i didn't have the nerve to ask her) there was no question that that's what it was, because Byzance is in a category by itself.

    I could have been wrong, of course!

  12. Thanks for holding the Tauer advent event! Please, count me in as well! Well, I can't recall a similar story. I do remember I was smelling Cinnabar on the neighbor that seemed to be Opium, but... well, that confusion can be easily understood :)

    I have to say, my perception of some perfumes changes over time. First time I sniffed Carnal flower, I only remember the really unpleasant musty-bitter feeling I got from it. And now I can't get enough! And I used to think Mitsouko was really harsh and woody, and now I'm finding it quite mellow.

    ReplyDelete
  22. AE is one of the scents that screams on me, and some orientals do too, so while I can understand the nuances of similarity, most of the time I have to steer clear of those scent groups. At least at work anyway! But it is an interesting idea, and I would bet, heavily influenced by skin chemistry, which really includes hormones too so I should just say chemistry. Please enter me in the Tauer draw and happy holidays.

    Here in Japan I rarely smell any perfumes on others, so if I detect any scent it really draws my attention. Last morning the elevator was saturated with some lovely perfume, stewed spicy fruits and fir maybe, nothing I know. Hmm... must identify which neighbour is wearing it and ask what it is.

    Some time ago I was at a sniffing event where I smelled the same rose perfume on the arms of several people. I was amazed about the differences: you could tell it was the same fragrance but on some arms there was a clear smoky note while on others the smell was green and fresh.

    I'd love to be entered into the Tauer draw - fantastic!

    Mistaken fumes - my husband commented last week that it was years and years since he'd smelt Angel on me. He was quite right! I was actually wearing VM's Hedonist... I could see his point - the Angel was there - softer, classier, but there. Peeps head over the parapet - just me?

    Couple of other recent perfume sample encounters which were memorable for the wrong reasons... SH 777 Kohl de Bahrein - my skin ate it up and spat out rotting carrot in extrait strength - I am most disgruntled with my skin! It's very different on blotting paper strips.

    And Alahine which I tried yesterday - I can tell there is something gorgeous but it's hardly there... and is that really lavender? I'm going to try more squirts!

    On a very good note - Oeillet Bengale - mmmm...

    Thanks for the draw - L'ADDM is so wonderful - it soars and feels so ancient and soothing.

  30. I am not so good in identifying fragrances on other people. I do sometimes recognise them:"I know this...!", or simply one note... The other day I was very surprised to actually identify one. It was Coco, which was my signature scent for years!

  35. I would love to enter the draw. I have never mistaken or recognized a scent on someone but only because I rarely have the chance to. Where I live it's all Avon and BBW or Chanel CCM. I have revisited AE a few times, Personally,I think it's gotten better over the years, having been tamed by reformulations. I hope to try the new Aromatics in White when it is released.

    One of the first fragrances I remember noticing was my godmother's perfume as a child. I never asked what she wore, and after she died, I would think about the scent and wonder a bit, but assumed I would never know. Then as I got more into perfumes, I ordered a sampler pack. As soon as I opened it, I could smell it- my godmother's perfume! I tore through the package, sniffing each one. Turns out, it was Chanel No. 5.

  40. i have a propensity to think that i'm smelling "black orchid" on other people, yet 9 times out of 10 when i ask what they are wearing, it's not "black orchid"...which is odd, since it is a somewhat distinctive scent, really. but then, when i wear it myself, it smells different from time to time. a chameleon on me, for no clear reason.

  42. I love trying to guess what perfumes people are wearing! However, I don't normally ask people what they're wearing unless I know them reasonably well, so I don't know my "hit rate"... maybe my New Year's resolution should be to ask more people what perfume they're wearing...

  43. Ha, I had the opposite experience to one of the commenters above: one of my hula sisters was wafting a lovely cloud of scent (not too overwhelming, but easy enough to catch when you leaned in for a honi) that I was sure I'd identified as Shalimar, but when I told her how wonderful she smelled and asked what she was wearing (thinking I'd get a confirmation), she smiled and said "Burberry for Women"! I'm in the US and thankful for the draw!

  48. I usually recognize the perfumes that I know on other people. lately it's often been La vie est belle (that I find too cloying).
    I remember once a woman with a divine sillage that I followed for 5 minutes before asking what her perfume was... it was Sycomore de Chanel... and it was just not far from rue Cambon in Paris :)

  49. I have been wanting to try AE for ages. Maybe I'll go find some now... I have been confused in the past by a scent worn by a lady who passed me in the stairwell of a hospital. I boldly called out to her, asking if it was Bal a Versailles. She was nice enough to answer: No, it was Ciara! And she seemed genuinely pleased to tell me so.

    About a year ago, I complimented an ex co-worker on her perfume: it smelled rich and sumptuous and at the same time so fresh, like a luxurious garden full of flowers in spring. I was sure she was wearing Fidji. Wrong!! She was wearing Boss Woman, a fragrance I truly despise, because on me it smells like a mixture of crushed tylenol and toothpaste. Go figure!

    I noticed a nice fresh scent on a woman once in the train here in Amsterdam. I thought it was CK one which I owned myself at that time. I actually asked her because I was curious if this is what it would also smell like to others when I wear it. Turned out that the scent wasn't coming from her but from her male friend sitting next to her. Better yet, it was Lovely from Sarah Jessica Parker. I had never thought of that one as a fresh scent.

  53. Last funny/embarrassing story was when I went to a talk about a particular NGO and people were milling about afterwards. One lady i started talking to wafted this full, beautiful and refined scent. It was very familiar but I wasn't sure what so I asked. No.5 Edp! Stupid nose :)

  55. I am the kind of person who doesn't like to bother anyone, except when I smell something on the streets in which case I just follow the person until I feel I can ask. I have turned around and gone into the opposite direction only to bug someone about his/her perfume.
    The ones I have confused (which I happen to dislike viscerally to the point they turn my stomach)are Issey Miyake L'Eau with Escape by Calvin Klein. It has happened to me twice that I had confused them and twice that I have made the effort of, very politely, sit on the other side of the room to never return. I am not sure what is it I confuse, some kind of ugly fruitiness, perhaps? I don't know.

  58. SOMEBODY at a ticket table smelled great, really natural tuberose. I asked them, "Someone smells really nice, who's wearing perfume?" They all denied, though one person said, "I do use a hairspray from Aveda everyone says smells nice." My guess is that someone was embarrassed to talk about perfume in front of our group of five strangers. But if no one really was wearing something, it must have been some combination of scents. Who know!

    I was at my local Saks the other day spraying at the latest offerings. The Chanel saleswoman tried to convince me that Beige from the Les Exclusifs had "the most beautiful drydown." Anyway, I obliged and got a somewhat fruity floral with a sharp green note that was just OK to me. I went back to my office and for the rest of the day, there was a waft of familiar smell emanating from the back of my hand where Beige was sprayed. After a couple of hours, it hit me: Prada Infusion d'Iris. Thanks, but no thanks.

  60. I can't tell if this thing took my comment. Anyhow, I said that AE is so absolutely distinctive that I commented on one of the Administrative Staff from the hospital how much I enjoyed her "sillage" and now she makes a point to walk past me every morning. Sorry if this is a repeat.

    There's a beautiful scent from Nina Ricci "Premier Jour", which was my signature for mane years. One of my girlfriends had it as well, but the perfume opened up totally different on us: spicy, edgy, almost leathery on me (though there was no leather accord as I was surprised finding out later) and powdery delicate floral on her. People could not believe we are wearing the same scent. So I do believe that your personality, not even feromones, reflects on perfume and accentuates certain notes.

    I pretty much never ask, so my success rate is unknown. But I do sometimes try to test myself, like sniffing caps in a store and then checking the label (works well with lines like Lutens and Malles with many fragrances in similar bottles) and it seems like all fruits smell alike, as do white musks, and I cannot really distinguish blended florals well either. But woods and spices are much easier to pick out.

  83. When I was about 7 years old I climbed onto my mum's lap and as she put her arms around me I noticed a scent to her hands that wasn't normally there. "Ciclamini!" I said, thinking of the wild cyclamen that grow in the mountains near my grandparents' house in Italy where we were staying. She put her hands to her nose puzzled and said she couldn't smell it. About 20 years later, my mum and I are back in the house getting ready to leave for my grandmother's funeral and my mum picks up the half empty bottle of Diorissimo on the dressing table and puts it in her bag, "it smells so much of her" she said. I sniffed the edge of the bottle and suddenly I was 7 years old again. It wasn't cyclamen, it was Diorissimo, lily of the valley, and it wasn't flowers on my mum's hands, It was my grandmother.
    I still see little pink flowers when I smell lily of the valley now, but I love this mismatched proustian madeleine and I kind of hope it doesn't get completely replaced by the correct image. It does mean I can dab some on my wrist and feel that feeling all over again though when the nostalgia takes me, and for that I'm really glad.

    Please include me in the Andy Tauer draw, I'm a lurker but a reader :)

  86. Hello Andy, Many years ago when I was living in Vancouver Canada I used to visit a small jazz store on Robson Street. Immediately on entering the shop you could smell the fragrance of Youth Dew that was worn by the shop owner. Somehow the scent fit in with the jazz ambiance of the shop. Today I wear Youth Dew and AE. Sadly, I think Youth Dew does not have the punch that it used to, although the bath oil more so.
    I love patchouli and love how it is interpreted in different fragrances.

  87. I'm terrible at identifying fragrances on other people. Once I was talking to a (male) colleague, and he smelled so good. I kept thinking "what is that, I know that, what is that... is that SHALIMAR!?". I was getting carried away at how cool I thought he was, but when I finally asked what he was wearing it turned out it was... Spicebomb. Turns out, I had sprayed Shalimar on my scarf a week earlier and had gotten confused.

    My collegues often let me guess what they are wearing, but being a great niche fan I also often am very wrong, because I am "spoiled" by Andy, for example. If the would be wearing "a Tauer", the chance for me to know wat it is, would be greater! Please count me in for the draw!!!Thank you very much!

  89. I recently identified PdT doused in quantity on a gal in a restaurant, which is rare here. Much more likely to find an Angelish one.
    But apart from dining situations, I support more sillage. If I won the draw, lonestar memories will waft...

  90. I'm new to the world of perfume, and your post has inspired me to keep an eye out for Aromatics Elixir, since I particularly love spicy oriental scents. May I be entered in the draw? The Tauer set would be just the thing to kick off my new interest in perfume!

  91. I have been fooled with a few scents - a male friend smelled divine & I could not place it...turns out it was a very vintage, leathery Shalimar. The next day I enjoyed wearing my Shalimar as if through different eyes - the leathery aspect suddenly clear as day! Wonderful.

  93. Tangential, but along those lines, I got a sample of Liquidnight and it smelled exactly like something I couldn't quite put my finger on--then it hit me, both Micallef Gaiac and Le Labo Vetiver 46 smell very much like LN. It was the first time I was able to come up with the reference(s). I'd still like to own all three! Ha! Thanks for hosting!

    True what you said about AE sharing some of YD dna. Of course, AE is a chypre and the other way more oriental but they share this clean dirtiness. Love them both but I only bathe myself in YD. I just wish they were still doing the Amber Nude version of it.
    My favorite from Andy is still LADDM.

    A saleslady helping me in a department store was trailing a delicious scent. It smelled just wonderful. I asked what it was and she said Hypnose. I had smelled this many times and did not care for it at all. Found a bottle and tried it on and still hated it. Yes, body chemistry!

    I'm not good at recognizing scents "in the wild" partly because I live in a scent-phobic city. Often the best I can do is "fruitchouli". Aromatics Elixir is a different matter -- from three feet away (or farther) it has the most beautiful rose sillage. I love and wear AE myself but up close it is more mossy herbal, although dabbing does bring out more of the rose.

    When I was working as a waitress, a customer in the restaurant smelled so divine I followed her across the room. I wish I had asked her what it was. This was in the eighties, yet it was a delicate floral not cloying, but a symphony of beautiful floral chords.

  114. Thanks for hosting the draw! I love Andy's perfumes, including some of the "difficult" ones - if I win, Carillon pour un Ange will be one of my selections! :-)

    I think skin chemistry has so much to do with how fragrances smell on others - speaking of Clinique, I tried Happy when it first came out, and it smelled like cheap orange floor cleaner on me - I could not scrub it off fast enough. Then not long after that, a woman at work was wearing the most fabulous scent, which smelled very high end, a rich orange blossom fragrance, and I asked her what it was. You guessed it - Happy!

    I have not smelled the most recent version of AE, but I loved it back in the day when it was so intensely mossy. I hope it is still that good.

    It's not only on others that certain fragrance smells differently, it happens on me, for example with D&G Femme, the original, discontinued one. When i tried it in the shop I could swear i had never smelled anything more beautiful than that, but when I bought it a few months later, it turned out to be something I would never want to use. I don't know why. I am not very good with guessing poeple's scents.

    I also smelled Aromatics Elixir wafting off of someone and was surprised upon asking, as it smelled much different on that person than it does on me. Lavender (any perfume that has lots of it) also seems to smell different on other people than it does on me. It becomes very powdery on me.

    I keep trying to win one of Andy's advent gifts every year.... maybe this year will be the one.

    I don't recall ever smelling AE, but there are certainly other perfumes that are so distinctive they can't be mistaken for anything else. My husband's grandmother wore Chanel Mademoiselle-- I put some on one day and stopped him in his tracks-- He said, "why do you smell like my grandmother?" Needless to say, it's one I'll never wear again.

    I didn't recognise Violet Blonde - one of my favourite perfumes - on a close friend last week. I got a lovely hit of violet from smelling it on her - much more than when wearing it myself. I also love AE - reading this reminds me to get the shower gel very soon! Thank you for the draw.

    I'm always intrigued by how different scents can be on different people. Quite often when I do ask what scent someone is wearing, the answer ends up being something I'm familiar with, which I didn't recognize when worn by someone else.

  126. As for the Aromatics Elixir - it often plays with the wearer. And it is really different in different days. I adore it for those days when it reveeals a gourgeous rose. This does not happen often on my skin, unfortunately, but it is indeed worth waiting!

    Like others have mentioned above, I find it difficult to recognize scents on others. What I do find confusing sometimes is reading others' reviews of fragrances I've worn and being extremely surprised that what they're smelling is totally different from my experience. I guess, it really is about body chemistry, isn't it?

  128. Speaking of Andy Tauer and scent confusion, I once was convinced a guy was wearing L'Air du Desert Marocain, and it turned out to be Cool Water or Fahrenheit or some decent but not nearly as interesting scent.

  141. Hello! I'm pretty much brand new to perfumes so I can't even begin to identify what someone is wearing, though I've been to a few weddings recently where I kept smelling delicate, creamy white florals like in Annick Goutal's Songes. From reading some of the comments here, I find it so interesting that people can still misidentify fragrances that they know well. It just goes to show how unique our perception is of our sense of smell!

    Exciting draw! Always a pleasure to try my luck here. I need to revisit AE. I never tried it on my skin, only the old bottle sniff and a spray on the test strip. Definitely did not think it was something I could pull off. But your observation makes me want to try again. I find the more I sniff, the more layers I am able to uncover and the more I am able to dissect a fragrance. Perfumes are so fun for this reason. Always a new discovery. I recently obtained a sample of 24 Faubourg. Wearing it for the first time there was a second I thought it could have been Dune. Not having honed a lot of "nose" skills (yet), I feel like I am constantly confusing myself or referencing other things I am familiar with. But I guess this is a natural part of the learning process.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Besides sometimes (many times) not being able to identify a scent I'm enjoying in the air (even when it's right on the tip of my brain)...I've confused the sillage of Obsession for women with Gris Clair more than once.

  144. One confusing moment for me came from smelling Lauder for Men as someone entered a room. I expected to see my significant other, but when I turned around I was face to face with a stranger. I didn't ask what fragrance he was wearing as I was speechless with surprise.

I think the perfumes around now don't last or even have much if any sillage, but every time I wear perfume, which is nearly every day of course, people ask about what I wear.

    I've always loved smelling Aromatics Elixir's sillage. Too bad it's not a very popular choice around here. The other perfume that I absolutely love smelling on others is Mitsouko. I walked behind a woman wearing Mitsouko once and it was just wonderful.

  149. Ingeborg03:36

    I usually cannot pinpoint a scent when it is worn by others, mostly because I haven't got many people around me wearing anything other than skin scents. More than once I have smelled something very good on a friend, only to find the scent does not behave in the same way on my skin. Also, some scents seem to have changed a lot since the 80s or 90s (Amarige comes to mind possibly also Quarts, my signature scent in the 80s).

    There are perfumes that smell dramatically different from one skin to another - mainly the chypre category seems to be very skin-chemistry sensitive. So I had to feel the differences of Dioressence, Chanel 19, Aromatics Elixir, Paloma Picasso, Diva, Mitsouko.... These cover a huge scale: from sharp woody to powdery to sweet-herbaceous - it is a surprise everytime I smell them on different people, even if I wear them in different moods or temperatures - as everytime I discover new facets..
    I used to give to my mom perfumes I got as present and didn't wear. We have different skins, so they smell different on me and on her.
    Once I offered her Gloria Vanderbilt, as I perceived it a bit mature for my age (about 27-28 I was that time.
    Usually she dried out very quickly the bottles, but now... it was barely touched after 2 months. She was too polite to refuse it nor to comment, but I insisted to tell me why is she not using the fragrance. "You know... I have the vague sensation it smells like bugspray.. please, don't take it personally..." Well, I took it and started to use it.
    A few days after this story, I had a few generous sprays of G.V. on me. My mom inhaled deeply and said:" What a gorgeous fragrance you wear! Wonderful! What is it?"
    "You know. mom... the one that you gave back to me, for smelling like bugspray !"

    It's not a weird thing, no? I feel like people in America are just not wildly into wearing perfume.

  182. Love a draw! So, once I was sure I smelled Clinique Happy wafting off a colleague, but later learned it was Paco Rabanne Calendre. It was her signature scent and she had worked very hard to locate a supply. Some element of it was getting difficult to produce or regulations had made problems for the formula. A way more complex frag than Happy!
