The nobler Tuscan Leather
Before I write something about the fragrance - bottle and box are beautiful and very noble and valuable! Extremely heavy, high-quality glass.
As for the fragrance itself, I smell a leather accord that smells almost exactly like the one from TF Tuscan Leather. This is extremely odd, as there is no leather listed anywhere in the fragrance notes. I think that the leather accord is an olfactory illusion created from the combination of oud and ylang ylang, perhaps also an unlisted saffron ?!?!
Safari Extreme overall smells like a lighter, more elegant, more oriental and easier to wear version of Tuscan Leather.
While the leather accord is about the same as Tuscan Leather, everything else surrounding it is definitely different. The floral notes and vanilla smooth out the leather accord and the ylang ylang gives it a balsamic touch. The woods make sure that the floral notes don't come across as too feminine. While the citrus top notes add some lightness to the scent, it is still a very intense and dense scent. For the most part, the scent remains linear. The base is a bit more powdery, possibly due to iris and sandalwood.
One to two sprays are quite enough to create enough sillage and durability without drifting too much into the sweetness.
Overall, a very noble, balsamic, powdery, smooth, floral leather scent.
Absolute recommendation on my part!!!
