    I received this as a frimp with my order. In the bottle it smells wet and woody. I have no idea what ingredients are in it as I put it on. Wet on skin it has an almost herb like scent, pulpy and hard to pin down. I can’t escape the thought that it reminds me of being at my Grandparents’ house. As it dries, a soft, smokey incense comes out, and something else that I can’t pin down but definitely reminds me of my Grandpa. At this point I go online and check the ingredients. Ah, leather! That’s the ingredient I couldn’t place. An hour of wearing it and it has a definitively masculine scent of leather and incense. It truly does remind me of my grandfather. It’s warm and comforting, but not something I will personally wear again.

    In the bottle there is an almost sticky, resin like scent that could be the incense or the rosewood. The leather scent actually reminds me of doeskin leather. This scent is categorized as a universal scent. At first it seems too feminine for men’s wear. It seems to have strong staying power. I can still smell it in the air after opening and closing the bottle.

    Wet on skin: I can almost smell a soft musk. This scent reminds me of high quality men’s cologne. It is so different on skin! The change is instant. I get a very oiled leather sort of scent. This isn’t an overtly feminine scent anymore. I get thoughts of men’s briefcases and visions of businessmen. There’s something on the edge of the scent. It is a sharp note, like and old wooden book shelf.

    On the skin dry 30+ mins: Lots of leather! The leather is the strongest scent but in a very good way. I get a slight peppery scent off the skin.

    Worn 3+ hours: This has definitely mellowed out. There is a woody spicy scent. I really like this one, but not on me. It smells like a man’s cologne. It reminds me of cuddling close to a man. On my skin it’s really similar to Old Spice, but mellower. It really reminds me of a former lover. Unfortunately I won’t be wearing this one anymore, although it smells wonderful.

    This is a scent that smells best after it’s been on skin for an hour. The settling period takes longer than a lot of other blends and there’s a strong dirt note (to me) while it does which fades into the leather/incense that’s so lovely once it’s gotten comfortable on your skin.

    Masculine, dry, leather.

    This is a lovely blend. On me, the leather and rosewood mingle pleasantly with parchment. It is soft, unisex and very calming.
