Mysterious incense is surrounded by luminous citrus, romance-redolent rose, and dark balsamic resins. Incense Rose illustrates the darkly mystical tendencies of rose. Bergamot and clementine combine with cardamom to create a juicy, clean spice that compliment and animate the stark power of Bulgarian rose. A new and mysterious world is revealed with the introduction of orris, a shadowy yet exuberant presence. Castoreum bustles forward, an eager, hefty attendant to these heavyweight florals. When cedar connives to reconstitute this ecstatic indulgence with it’s fresh sense, it alleviates some of pressure that castoreum, rose and orris exert. But, in this conifer-swept landscape, a darker, less romantic power takes hold. Like an uncontainable fire, vetiver, myrrh, patchouli and frankincense roll through this composition, their fruity, astringent smoke permeating every corner of the scent. Ultimately, labdanum and ambrein are all that is left, the condensed, solidified byproduct of the preceding citric-floral-resin fusion. Sweet and feminine, yet energized by an unmistakably ecclesiastic air, No. 6 is a uniquely reverent yet rebellious floral. The Joan of Arc of Tauer’s garden, this scent converts hordes of followers with it’s powerfully pure sense of self. Incense Rose is a true individual.
