Mixing, mixing, incense sticks.
I ordered the fragrance - because I like Aventus and also Tuscan Leather as fragrances very much, and according to comments and reviews it smells like an interplay of these two well-known fragrances.
Said done - finally arrived from UK. Directly looking at the bottle which is standard for Alexandria:
"Leather - Pinnapple - Birch" -> These are probably the main ingredients of this mixture, which are written strikingly on the bottle.

I put a sprayer straight into the room and smelled it.

"WOW - what a fragrance" - Was my first thought and was thrilled.
The fruity pineapple was perfectly balanced with the woody & somewhat scratchy birch. Not a trace of leather. A strong Aventus touch!
The second spray on my wrist immediately brought my association with Aventus back into my head. Very much based on it - but why is Tuscan Leather missing?!
In comparison I also have the "Dupe" by Aventus in the form of Rasasi's "Pour Lui" (Zebra) - which smells a lot more synthetic.

Then 2 sprays behind the ear and off to the acoustic band sample. In the car the scent was in small clouds in my nose - but modified. You notice something sweet, and Ledriges -> Finally Tuscan Leather comes out.
In the background, I gently noticed the scent of the evening and found the interplay of the two notes of fruit and leather very good.
However, a nice anecdote at the end of the evening: Colleague comes closer to say goodbye and asks: "Why does it smell like incense sticks?
My answer is, "I guess I should be."

And yes - this smoky, sweet-woody undertone of the fragrance, which is stronger in the air and in space than the fruit -> Already reminds of the typical incense sticks.
But there are differences.

All in all it is a very good fragrance - high quality and worth the money. Shelf life in good 6-7 hours.
Did I expect more?-> Yes, there is still something missing. Something that makes the fragrance unique. But how is that supposed to work with the two role models...
