L’Air des Alpes Suisses


Launched in 2019 by Andy Tauer, L’Air des Alpes Suisses is another stunner, this time inspired by his home country, Switzerland.

L’Air des Alpes Suisses opens with the fresh, bracing smell of bitter alpine herbs and crisp, exhilarating glacier-cooled air. It is a scent I recall from our hikes when herbs were crushed underfoot as we walked, their fragrance gently wafting up to our noses. As it develops, it gets green - I smell dried needles from a fir forest - and spicy-warm. This is summer in the alps, when the meadows are lush and grassy, and the Alpine flowers bloom. Here, Lily is joined by orchid to create a powdery, soft floral heart. The base is woody from larch and beech, which grows on valley floors, gently sweetened and warmed by amber. L’Air des Alpes Suisses is so evocative of the Swiss Alps; you can hear almost cowbells off in the distance.  

The dry down is warm, airy, and beautiful. L’Air des Alpes Suisses is a masterpiece in fragrance from one of the most talented niche perfumers working today. It’s also a scented invitation from Andy Tauer to experience the natural beauty of the Swiss Alps with him. RSVP.
