Polarizing, ashy leather scent
First! BR Icon are great fragrances so I had to add my thoughts to the ones without reviews.

I can see people hating this one. The opening is very intense, and it "stings the nostrils"... But remember these are Eau de Parfums so we're facing less alcohol here, so it could just be a very intense opening. Maybe it's the hit of the sharp cypress, cedar, and suede. The opening does have those noticeable citruses. Paired against the very sharp, ashy, pungent leather, it does give a nice variation to the opening. The opening is just so intense, that it can make you just say "NO" immediately... give this one some time. You can tell the cedar is making its presence there a bit, but the leather/suede is super prominent and has that gasoline/sharp leather smell too it. Maybe not the gasoline that Fahrenheit has (they do it perfect), but the leather accord here is sharp, maybe even ashy. It's not the smoothest leather, its a rougher kind of smell that can be polarizing.

This one feels sweeter (in a citrusey way) and brighter than Fahrenheit. Ferrari Uomo is also a sweeter version of this scent, but may be a bit closer to its profile. 83 Leather Reserve has an intense, gasoline, ashy, even somewhat smoky (like tobacco smoke) accord to it, that can DEFINITELY be too pungent and off-putting for others. GF hated this immediately. I am all about the pungent, intense leather accords. This one is also very unique. Not a typical designer DNA, or really one I've encountered anywhere else really.

ONE bad thing about this, longevity. Doesn't last like most BR frags, but this is one of the better ones in the series, IMO, in terms of originality. Only pick up if you like leather and a more pungent smell. Can be layered with something like Vetiver Guerlain to smooth it out a bit. Check this one out for sure just to check it out.
