Classy Fail
Goes on like champagne, a fruit-infused wine, quite elegant. The first five minutes are wonderful. Then it becomes storax and pepper, which is depressing, but that phase fades as the champagne returns to create this elegant, laid-back, vaguely peppery, refined, distantly fruity, champagne smell, that screams class and masculine opulence. This lasts only an hour, and then the peppery/storax combo drowns out the elegance. Sigh. I know part of this is me because my skin amps pepper and spice like nobody’s business, so it may work for those whose skin doesn’t behave that way. When it’s storax and pepper, it’s Liz Zorn’s Journeyman all over again.
 
Interestingly, by four hours in, the storax/pepper combo has receded and it smells again like it did in the beginning, albeit as a skin scent. This, I like. I can see girls liking this on a guy, too. Heat turns it slightly sweet/vanilla and makes it slightly aromatic. By hour 12, it's still there, but as a light, gentlemanly scent, like the final wisps of cigar smoke.

This might work for some men, but it did not work for me; nevertheless, it's a classy scent.

Drunk and dark
First and very important: it is ridiculous, that people who want to enjoy this wondrously extraordinary fragrance, have to pay double price because of the golden bottle. C'mon, the juice is so excellent, that people would buy it even in a gray noname flask!

Vinasse, drunken, dark colored fruits - the beginning is a really strong fruit oil with so much alcohol, that I felt dizzy after first sniff. It is not the usual alcoholic chugging of the beginning, it stays for hours.
Top and heart notes together gives a grape-plum mixture, I have to tell, that I never detected so clearly plum note in a perfume. I am amazed. Eucalyptus is not playing hardball, only supporting behind the scenes, so you almost feel the austere peel of plum in your mouth, not only the sweetness of it.

Oud plays also supportive role, I got accustomed to sharp, strong, smoky oud, but in GOLD LEATHER it gives only the smooth darkness to the background. Later on the fragrances grows to be a creamy, mild leather, only one piece residual plum on the top, laid on a woodden bench in a timber house next to a dark forest, after sunset, in the winter. So the feeling is great.

GOLD LEATHER - not easy to wear. I would not blow it every day, but I would go to the shelf and sniff it almost every hour. It is a perfect fragrance for a pair for a candlelit dinner téte-á-téte.
Congratulation, Mr. Epinette! You created something unbelievable - again.

Boozy leather, saffron and oud: spicy, warm, sweet, dark and maybe leaning masculine.
