came in from Zurich, Switzerland to let us be the first in the U.S. to sniff his newest fragrance Orange Star.
That's me smiling happily amongst great company.
What a warm event. Andy answered many questions as people of all ages flowed in and out for hours. It was a pleasure to meet strangers in this Bar and talk scent. I enjoyed watching reveries of eyes as we all sniffed. There was talk of the Iceland volcano and the domino-effect in air transport. I met people who I've read in fragrance forums or on their own blogs.
Orange Star is not a typical neroli or green. It warms with its use of resins. It's got personality and lasts. Another successful Tauer invention.
The packaging is stunning and after a glass of Prosecco I noticed I could arrange the boxes into various connecting "molecules".
The cobalt blue bottle is gorgeous, accented by the orange label, and let me tell you, the cap is fit for work. When I sold fragrance it was the caps that often went faulty. Oh and, the sprayer emits a fine spray, which I appreciate for a "scent delivery system".
Lucky Scent was the first to offer fragrance lovers around the world access to hard to locate niche house and cutting edge fragrances in one place online. They allowed us to buy samples at affordable prices so that we could decide when and if we would purchase the whole bottle. The range of this bar is stunning. It allows you to experience what the love of fragrance is all about.
You know a good fragrance store by how the people move behind the counter. These folks were flawless the whole event with a poetry of motion and depth of knowledge, while being great hosts.
Behind Steven's & Angela's great smiles is a love of fragrance and helping people find what they want in a fragrance, whether the shopper is a newbie or connoisseur.
