Lonesome Rider reportedly builds on Orris which was a limited edition Tauer fragrance that was available in 2006 and is very sadly missed by a legion of admirers. The description for Lonesome Rider also references Lonestar Memories.
Because we think it is important to the understanding of the scent, we are adding an explanation of the fragrance from Andy Tauer to our listing. Andy Tauer, an incredible artist as well as a perfumer, says “I think that creating perfumes is like painting with scent.”
In a certain way I started working on Lonesome Rider 11 years ago. Lonesome Rider builds on “Orris”, a limited edition scent. Orris built on Lonestar Memories a scent that captures elements of untrimmed leather, campfire and the scent of wild pastures. A smoky leather note is what I wanted to see in Lonesome Rider, too. To me, this feels like going back to the source. I want the Lonesome Rider to stand out of the crowd. Thus, there’s an element of rough texture that I love so much. The smoke note is civilized, the leather warm and feels like a worn leather jacket. There is an animalic note in Lonesome Rider.... No worries. I do not use castoreum that comes from dead beavers. I use... a synthetic reconstitution. How does it smell? It smells actually very elegant, like fine and warm leather, with a twist. Pepper, black, present but not dominant, is there because it needs to balance the opulent citrus chord that welcomes you when you pull the Lonesome Rider trigger. Black pepper oil is not just liquefied pepper, it is an abstraction almost, metallic and woody, it blends into the chord of other spices, clove and coriander, and adds a masculine twist to a fresh cologne opening. And then, there’s the rose….pepper does wonders with rose. To me, the pepper note was a must, but it needed to be blended in carefully. I love the warm metallic sensual bright scent of orris root.... It shines through the fragrance, melts with the rough leather and woods."
