Honest leather without accessories
Before diving deeper into the world of fragrances, my small collection consisted of scents like Guilty Absolute or Homme Intense. The Gucci I appreciate even today, at that time I found him very intense and have heard for him at no time a comment. In the meantime I don't own it anymore but for me this fragrance paved the way to leather fragrances, it reminded me of the leather goods shop or the cobbler. Now quite a while passed before I realized my final love for leather scents through Colonia Leather by AdP. In my comment on Colonia fragrances I put this down. That refreshing element on top of coarse leather, I really liked it. When I wanted to buy this perfume - and now we finally come to the perfume we are talking about here - I found out that the brown series is being discontinued. But since I had tested this one and it was now available at a good price due to the launch of the black series, I bought Colonia Leather among others. Until I thought a few weeks ago, a comparison must be here but I honestly know many of the brown and black bottles and can say that the differences were marginal. But they are there and they are also with the Leather in relation to the Colonia variant. But realistically, you will only notice them if you know at least one of the scents very well. Outsiders will not notice the different nuances.
The prelude usual leathery, usual coarse, reminiscences of Italian leather alleys resonate, in addition, freshly squeezed lemons, the acid splashes on the leather and refines this, yes chiselled the leather as if it were a stone, which it is to hew artistically.
But still...I register the first differences. The leather here seems a little more refined, not simplistic or crudely produced. A hesperidic touch lays over the leather. Do I like this better now? Well, I don't really know. Both have their charms, probably I tend to the old version.
Are raspberry and rose actually really there? Yes; for my sensation and with much focus on the fragrance, these are quite far back there however not as individual olfactory ingredients but rather as part of a whole. This leather, as crude as it has been constructed, is enriched by the facets of the other notes. This is very rare, but AdP is able to open with a leathery freshness and then let the leather appear more charming and cosmopolitan through the other notes. A great production and if one did not know about the raspberry and rose, I, at least, would never have noticed this because both ingredients behave olfactory incoherent to on paper similar fragrances.
At all: at no time one loses the tart element of leather, never dominate other notes and Leather threatens in no phase to become fruity or even cloying. This title acts more uncompromising than others of its kind. That's what I appreciate about this product. You can create a swell leather scent without saffron and consorts.
My conclusion: whether brown or black, both versions are successful, the differences are marginal and so it is recommended to choose the cheaper respectively, the choice is taken anyway when the brown series is no longer available. AdP continues to prove to me how ambivalent this house can be and above all that they don't just master one style. Leather is a fantastic leather scent and not at all similar to the well-known creations. I think I have now sufficiently paraphrased Leather and its advantages.
