Tauer Zeta EDP Perfume Video Review

I’ve been told that it is “wedding season”. I don’t know what that means exactly. I assume that more people get married in the summer or at least this is what press releases want me to believe. I’ve been asked about “wedding perfumes” many times. The obvious ones include romantic florals or white florals because brides are supposed to smell frou-frou and girly, blah, blah, blah. My floral “bride” perfume recommendation is Tauer Zeta. It’s floral and pretty but not completely predictable. I like that it is laid-back and elegant. It’s perfect for outdoor weddings.

Tauer Zeta perfume

Zeta opens as a doughy orange blossom with a citrus floral softness. Most citrus wear very sharp and angular on me. The citrus in Zeta wear soft and cottony. Under the citrus, there is something so soft like orris incense. The florals are honeyed, this is a linden blossom fragrance. The linden blossom is realistic but not literal. The base is soft and beautiful with a buttermilk sandalwood richness. The base does have that incense too it that you either love or hate in Tauer perfumes.

The overall feel for me is that this is a hazy summer afternoon. And it smells expensive and luxurious. It does smell of high quality.

Notes listed include lemon, bergamot, sweet orange, ylang ylang, orange blossom, neroli, linden blossom, rose, orris, sandalwood and vanilla PERFUMER – Andy Tauer

Give Zeta a try if you like citrus florals. Or if you like perfumes like L’Artisan Parfumeur La Chasse Aux Papillons Extreme, Parfums DelRae Debut, Tableau de Parfums Miriam, and/or Estee Lauder Pure White Linen Light Breeze. I perceive Zeta as a feminine fragrance.

I find that projection and longevity are above average. This is a perfume that I enjoy in the summer but need in the winter. It is a very optimistic fragrance in cooler weather.

The 1.7 oz bottle of Zeta retails for about $133 at Tauer Parfumes.

Victoria’s Final EauPINIONLinden “Taueraide” – A very beautiful citrus floral with an incense base, a beautiful wedding perfume. And it’s one that makes me happy.

  1. I wore Zeta at my wedding, a year ago April. It was searching for the right wedding perfume that got me embroiled in the world of perfume aficionados, blogs, and meetups, and it’s been lots of fun so far!

    1. Shout out to you in the video 🙂 I’m happy that your search brought you to this crazy alternate universe.

      I love this one for a wedding because it’s feminine but not stuffy or too forced. Plus, it makes me happy. It’s sunny and warm and happy.

      1. Oh, hey, I have to watch the video. I’m less likely to watch them because I’m usually at work. Thanks, sweetie.

      2. Just watched the video. It’s funny that you mention the Non-Blonde’s review because that was actually the review that I read, while I was searching for my wedding scent, that made me instantly order up a sample from Luckyscent, which then made me go “that’s the one!”.

        Have you tried Dawn Spencer Hurwitz’s linden scent from her new YSL collection? It’s called Ma Plus Belle Histoire d’Amour. I think I’m going to get a bottle; it’s very nice. Very different from Zeta.

        1. Oh, really? I love Gaia’s blog.

          Yes, I have. It’s very pretty. And it’s very different from Zeta. I really enjoy it. Actually, I’m really enjoying the entire YSL Collection Retrospective.

    1. I think it’s worth trying. It’s very “Tauer” so keep that in mind. The Tauer incense blend works for me so I think that’s why Zeta worked for me.

        1. Then you must try it! The only way I can describe it is “Tauer’s take on citrus-florals”.

  2. I find myself in the rare circumstance where I’ve actually got a sample of the perfume being reviewed, but I haven’t sniffed it yet. There’s something very satisfying about reading, thinking “oooh, sounds nice!” and knowing I can try this tomorrow. Yay!
