…there was a sense of rebirth, of tangible optimism and artistic fervour; the air was filled with sounds, colours and perfumes and Paris’ soul was shimmering, animated by the vibrant enthusiasm that pervaded the Ville Lumière. It was 1925 and the Esplanade des Invalides opened its doors to the International Exhibition of Decorative Arts, entitled Les Années 25, from which the Art Déco, an aesthetic style at its zenith, would have drawn its name.
Refined, nostalgic, enveloping and sparkling, Les Années 25 by Tauer Perfumes is a floral-oriental fragrance that takes its name from the homonymous exhibition and draws inspiration from the perfumery of that age to convey its charm under a more contemporary light. A “Modern Vintage”, as states the eclectic artist Andy Tauer, founder and creative soul of the perfume house, that restores the distant beauty of a timeless glamor.
Indian ginger enlights the scene, spicy, fresh and sharp enough to impart a sparkling effervescence to a citrusy start faceted in the fruity and juicy nuances of the orange oil, in the aromatic woody transparence of bergamot and in the floral green nuances of petitgrain bringing to the whole a touch of lively carefree.
A tiny dust of iris and Bulgarian rose waves over the bright vivacity of ginger, amplifying the fluffy and romantic allure of the bouquet. The golden glitters of the spice blend into the powdery consistency of the benzoin and the tonka bean. Iris is the protagonist, in its most woody / floral profile, set between the glimmering opening notes and the warm sandalwood, patchouli and vanilla base to which the sensuality of ambergris and the magnetism of oakmoss and musk give depth and volume.
A truly surprising fragrance that breaks a time gap of almost a century, transporting us to Woody Allen’s Parisian Midnight, as if that 1925, in a blink, relived in a whole new light.
Les Années 25 has been officially presented at recent edition of Pitti Fragranze 16 and its now available – as Limited edition of 500 pieces – from Tauer Perfumes’ website and in selected stores and perfumeries, in the iconic blue pentagonal bottle. (50 ml spray, Eau de Parfum concentration).
