Tableau de Parfums Loretta: new fragrance by Tauer & Pera & draw

Loretta comes as the second chapter in the Tableau de Parfum series (introduced by Miriam) from the creative forces of Andy Tauer and Brian Pera (in perfumery and film-making respectively). In this ongoing collaboration, Pera and Tauer engage in a discourse about perfume, film, people and emotions. In addition to the fragrance line Tableau de Parfums, the collaboration involves a related film series called WOMAN'S PICTURE. As per Andy: "Sometimes, I create perfumes inspired by Brian's films; other times, Brian reflects on the scents that I create using his medium. Our goal is to explore the possibilities of both arts and their related effects on the imagination".

The fragrance Loretta was inspired by the world of a short film of the same name from the Woman's Picture film series. For the launch of the Loretta fragrance, Brian and Andy wanted to present their version of "perfume spots". We wanted to see how the moods and themes of Loretta, the fragrance and its companion short film, might be further interpreted within this condensed and recognizable format. Loretta Perfume Spots

Brian filmed three spots, which the duo hope to share with perfume lovers as the centerpieces of a DRAW.

 Brian Perra and Andy Tauer will personally present Loretta on October 19th at the Scentbar in Los Angeles (late afternoon, 7405 Beverly Blvd Los Angeles CA 90036).

  1. Looking forward to these perfume spots. Andy Tauer is really coming up with inventive ideas about perfumes.

    I got a travel sample of Loretta as a part of the fundraising earlier in the year. The first impression was of a big tuberose with a Tauer spicy base that was too heavy for me, unlike the Miriam. But I have to test again, once is not enough.

    Love big tube with spices. Review coming up. ;-)

    So the only one of these 3 "filmettes" that did not come off as an R-rated horror film from the eighties decade was #3, but she had such a horribly trashy dress on in that one that #3 gets panned too. Perfume is lovely not spooky/scary. Re-do the marketing effort.
