Pentachord Auburn by Tauer
Cinnamon, Citrus, Sandalwood, Amber and Tobacco.
Auburn is strangely good, yet I cannot generate any passion for it. You can smell it's well made and has depth to it. It wears "larger" than you'd expect a 5 note compilation could execute, but ...............
.................You guys get the idea. It simply isn't for me in spite of being a quality release. The listed notes are accounted for and on my skin, the amber plays the biggest role. It's semi sweet, a bit on the dry side and slightly resinous. These attributes ( I'm quite sure ) are influenced by the cinnamon who happens to be the next most obvious player. After only a few minutes of wearing Auburn, the woody aspects of sandal and amber are percolating underneath what I can only describe as cinnaresin. I have a suspicion that my particular sense of smell cannot appreciate the balance of this creation. Others may absolutely love the way Tauer has tuned this scent. I, for one, am not among them as "something" in Auburn seems just a bit "off" to my palette.
I wanted to like this very much. In spite of my lack of appreciation for Auburn, I'd be completely remiss if I didn't reiterate that it's a quality fragrance and should be sample worn; especially by those who are fans of either cinnamon or amber. My recommendation is a try-b-4-u-buy for Tauer's Pentachord Auburn.
