Zeta by Andy Tauer

In the linden-blossom themed Zeta, Andy Tauer explores the combination of citrus (lemon, bergamot, orange), linden, rose, neroli, sandalwood, and vanilla. Suzanna from boisdejasmin.com called it “the most ebullient summer-sunshine perfumes” in 2012. Zeta brought me to a dusk in June under a tree in Morancé, Lyon.

Here is the third poem inspired by Zeta – a linden blossom theme –


When the heat lays to rest

the welcome breeze enters


I lean on the

course linden trunk – waiting


Blossoms curlicues

falling to the ground


I submit to the scent

obliquely holding me at the

gate of the world


You arrive, in white

I wonder in comfort


Something is in this June evening air


In our embrace we disappear
