Andy Tauer is a Swiss independent perfume house founded by Andy Tauer in 2005. Andy is a chemist by profession and self-employed. He initially launched his company as a one-man business while continuing to work part-time. But over time, Andy has become a well-known figure in the field of perfumery around the world thanks to his perfumes - "fragrant sculptures" that include quality ingredients and innovative structures. So who is the man behind the brand and what makes it so special? Open dialogue and one-man work: For many, many years, Andy Tauer has maintained an open and friendly dialogue with the perfume community through social media. He did so from his first blog in 2006, and expanded to a new collaborative platform, PERFUMism.com, in 2009. The Internet helped him become a meteor in the sky, and grow to a world-class level of worship. The brand, and Andy Tauer itself, have become equally well known. This is mainly due to his amazing talent and support for the artistic and independent perfume community. For many Andy Tauer is a role model. In the case of a one-man show and all that can be seen, is his handiwork only. He is the one who puts together the formulas, buys the ingredients, gets orders, packs the perfumes, goes to the post office to send the perfume. In short when you order his perfume, you get a product that is made entirely by one person. Goat mustache and beard as Andy Tauer's hallmarks: His mustache, along with his "goat beard", became his trademark. And they show about a very calm, rational person who does what he loves. In fact it is a talented name that produces small masterpieces that enter the perfume pantheon with the most notable work being L'Air du Désert Marocain which has become the parent product, which is praised by everyone and leaves an impression on everyone. His biography shows a boy who grew up in a very warm environment, with tons of love, and in a time when everything was progressing: economy, wealth, and a lot of optimism. At first the family lived in a simple apartment and had a very small Citroen car. Ironically, cars have grown, but this has always been a Citroen. He lived in a small village with 350 people, a medieval city, with a large 800-year-old tower. In the countryside of northern Switzerland, in the Rhine, farmers in the area, forests, all the good things that build memories and make contact with nature. As a family they went on many trips. His father died when he was 13, leaving a big dark mark on his life. When asked about trips he replies: "Trips are a bit more like meditation; you get into this state of mind where the legs move, the brain is released and washed away with oxygen. Drawing, as much as it can be soothing for a brain so preoccupied with computing with its left side, means: "You use your right side of the brain, and I'm very focused and in a state of flow. It's relaxing, but also tiring." Andy Tauer explains his decision to study chemistry as follows: "I had to decide what to study and I came to chemistry because I loved chemistry and because you can go in all sorts of directions. In the end I graduated in molecular biology and my doctorate was more biology work than chemistry work." As for his choice of perfume, he says: "I never wanted to become a perfumer, I wanted to make perfume ... Making perfume, blending, and creating was my goal. It was a hobby and a way to stay creative while my business tasks became increasingly uncreative (boring). "At first I used only natural materials, and after a while I added synthetic ones."
