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