An actually normal high gloss leather
In my still anonymous perfume-time I met good Tom from Finland and was rather averse than interested after this fragrance was discussed very much in a certain direction. A leather scent and a guy on the packaging, okay, happens.
In this respect, my interest in a test was not huge either. Now that I had it in front of me, I can say one thing: if the title and design were more average, hardly anyone would talk about the fragrance in the same way. By the way, this is not a judgement on the fragrance, but it does say that it is harmless.
This impregnated synthetic leather contains many ingredients. What it does not have in it is a top note. At the beginning you have leather in the known note and what leads to this impact, I try to break down. At first the cypress resonates quite clearly. Its limy note is clearly perceptible. But now Tom is quite different from Leather from AdP, for example, despite the distinct citric note.
For one thing, Eldo doesn't proceed in a very subtle way, but lets Tom go from the beginning. I tap on his jaws, because something balmy and ethereal resonates subliminally. So the limey note turns into a creamier note, which sticks to the leather like shoe polish and has not been applied very tightly. The vetiver, which is perceptible, is rather fresh and grassy, it radiates life and not musty earth. In addition, the type of leather is in itself. This here is high gloss leather, modern leather. Freshly impregnated shoe leather of quite high quality. The leather here seems to be close to the iris, which also comes through and who knows what leather means here?
Further on: now the vanilla is gradually getting stronger, but it looks sweet and synthetic, I suspect a connection to the aldehydes.
At the end it smells of vanilla and amber, a pleasant finish and balm for the tortured soul. Here, however, there is a slight tendency to synthetic sweetness, which can be displeasing.
All this leads to a fragrance that radiates a lot but I don't know what it actually wants to radiate. At first, Tom seems like someone who is so extroverted that he shows himself everywhere and is a topic of conversation. This flattens, because behind all the glamour there is little depth. So it inevitably comes to the fact that this loud element becomes quieter, even more uncertain. The result is a fine and fragile fragrance at the end. This change takes place relatively quickly in the second part, because the first dominant scents retreat faster than one would like. If you want to compare it, I would like to call it the more glaring Floris - Mahon Leather.
