Retro earthy leather cologne
It would be quite difficult that a scent like this one was marketed for women nowadays, its earthy leather and spicy character is from nowadays perspective too masculine to even call it unisex. Just a matter of trends I suppose, I can't even think of a today's scent I would connect it to. In fact, it smells older than 1970s, I would say is nearer to pre 2nd war leather eau de cologne creations, so I guess already retro feeling when it came out.. There are flowers (carnation and jasmine) and agrumes in it but no sweetness at all. This one is an elegant bitter dry green leather cologne, spicy, animalic and woody, at least it is on me. Fascinating long lasting drydown, for those of us who enjoy almost any kind of proposal on leather and dare to wear vintage scents in a proud and carefree way.
