Leather is completely gone for the seats on it
"That's the best you could do? Smells like Alberto." "I wanted to design something special there, something suitable for your car brand. Better than the Fiat scents, right?"
"I don't know how we're going to make this work...you can't smell leather...probably only one can help now to save the fragrance and all the money spent on years of research and development. Alberto, uh...Mrs. Perfumer, give me the phone.

Five minutes later, a phone rings, a stocky man picks up, "Yes, please? I see, yes, I see. Yes....yes, of course. Italy, you say? No problem, I can be there tomorrow. However....you have the wrong number, this is Trevor Ochmonek."
Another phone rings. A man on his motorcycle tries to answer the call, the phone slipping down his pants where it continues to vibrate. Only after a dozen missed calls does the caller from Maranello reach the heavily breathing man:
"Wool?"
"Yeah, sure."
"This is the Head of Scents at Ferrari, Cravio Briavache. We want to release a leather scent and our perfumer is suffering from Morillas Syndrome. We need you. Can you be here tomorrow to inspect the scent? See what can be salvaged?"
"Well..."
"We've got beer. Lots of beer."
"See you tomorrow then!"
"Veltins and Karlskrone in cans, not Italo beer. Wolle? Wool??? Just hung up...."
"Excuse me, Mr Briavache?"
"Not now..."
"But there's a Mr. Wollny downstairs at reception, I think you're expecting him."

Next day:
"I'll flag up what's going on. You forgot the leather. Your apple and cinnamon compote is nice, but more for dessert. Ah, the bitter orange doesn't cut it. Good thing it's there. It covers up the rest of the sweet stuff. Where does the perfumer come from? Ferrero?"
"Yes, indeed, did you smell that out?"
"Nah, I only know Ferrero in terms of Italy apart from Ferrari. But I'll see what's salvageable...."
"Are you dumping beer in there right now?"
"Sure, can only get better. Leather would be good too, should be a leather scent right?"
"I'll get you what you need!"
"Oh, just get me leather, I'll improvise with the rest here. It gets better after half an hour, after all."

Indeed, the patchouli took over, which however smelled more like grasses not unlike. Likewise, woody notes now acted, which, however, little expressive but rather served to maintain the initial sweetness over further hours. Leather Essence was designed to be very pleasing, almost toothless. Leather was later to be perceived, wool will still report this, yet I hope not that so leather seats in the Ferrari smell.

Hours, if not days later:
"So, I'm through. So first thank you for the leather with which you usually decorate your carts. Made myself a pair of pants out of it."
"With one leg and with your back view with cleavage?"
"That's what they wear on the biggest catwalk in the world, in Herne."
"Yes, well, better explain how you saved the olfactory mishap."
"With leather. Sure, my favorite dating portal Parfumo will not rate the fragrance with 9/10, that was not to do. But: solid. Solid as your sleds, although yes, I swear by my Daihatsu. Just has a hole in the dash unfortunately. I thought it was a button and bang! Hole in it. Oh, well. Anyway, the leather plays in the background, ensnares the sweet broth at the beginning so that you think: Oops, that's not so bad now. Not good, more a fragrance like Bayer Leverkusen, but also not bad."
"Wool, there really was not more to get out?"
"Later it gets better, we're already talking about almost Europa League. The leather is almost completely gone, I needed it for my pants after all, for that the rest was enough to conjure up the wood patchouli thing as arbitrary as possible. No one thinks now, but that's bad but: oh, already forgotten the fragrance! Good, huh?"
"Oh no, that's really all it had?"
"I lightened it up with vanilla. Now it's for the whole Marley clientele."
"Good idea! But where did the vanilla come from?"
"Müller chocolate pudding with vanilla sauce. I don't like those and then poured that into the fragrance."

"Well, and it stays like that?"
"No, because if I had continued to accentuate the base after an hour or so, sooner or later you would have noticed that it's rather mediocre. Therefore, after that, it becomes consistently mushy and not very definable. If this isn't a fragrance with a lot of leather, wink, wink."
"Wool, even if you don't have a lot of things down like not sullying the toilet when you use it or using deodorant, lifting bad scents into the gray mediocre, you can!"

Leather Essence by Ferrari barely smells like leather. For this, the sweet-fruity elements have been constructed not too strong but still acceptably effective. The development does not change in principle, even if it is then woody. All in all, a fragrance that doesn't stand out negatively, which probably doesn't stand out much anyway. Basic solid.

Above Average Scent at A Very Average Price
Leather indeed and Ferrari, of all marques, seems to be looking out for the average person.

No big price tag for such a great scent that the novice or budget minded collector of scents can afford.

Not sickly sweet like Tom Ford's better known leather based perfumes. The cinnamon, clove and black leather notes make this a serious scent, special events worthy.

Exquisite Leather
This parfum is representative from Ferrari mark: Elegancy and luxury in a bottle. The only difference between the parfum and the cars are the price.
Ferrari Letaher Essence is a sweet and exquisite leather dessigned for the modern Uomo to wear with a leather jacket, shirt and trouser pants.
Excellent sillage and Longevity up the 12 hours. Price is equivalent to buy a Fiat car not a Ferrari.

Like a raw leather biker jacket, creamy and powdery!
By the way, I was looking for an oud-based perfume as a replacement for my treasured M7 Eau de Toilette, and I came across Essence Oud. Don't get me wrong, and I meant precisely Essence Oud. While getting more details about that, I found a vast collection of FERRARI essences, and Leather is one of those, meant to be oriental, leathery, and fougére.

This is the first time I got a FERRARI perfume; never tried any before. So, just following the first squirt, I got a spicy, sweet, and warm aroma of clove buds blended with tart orange peel and just a feel of bergamot. Ain't no medicinal note in there, but something slightly subtle and powdery. I think I adore that inception, miles away from the traditional citrus top notes of many other fragrances.

As soon as that pleasant blend fades down, the starring notes of this leathery juice begin revealing their best. I catch plenty of luxury dark leather accord surrounded by sensual tonka and a pinch of aromatic cassia bark spread around the woody notes with a red-hot candy nuance.

The dry down is rich in superior patchouli, cedar smoothness and guaiac wood smokiness, and an amusing touch of creamy vanilla powder. The overall scent is captivating, not boring at all.

Meseems, Leather Essence is a refined and exquisite fragrance that makes a masculine signature. I recommend this for cooler temperatures like fall and winter, both during a day and night out. Since it is not overpowering can be safely worn at work. Longevity and sillage are above the average on my skin, an exceptional fragrance. An exciting thing, the bottle is wrapped by an excellent leather cover that reminds the interior of the Ferrari GT. To me, this scent deserves a complete 8/10! You know what? I am tempted to buy Vetiver Essence as it sounds promising!!!

Sweet, creamy, spicy leather. Smells like a richly spiced gingerbread cake wrapped in a leather jacket or left on a leather backseat

Creamy vanilla-tonka-patchouli, not much leather. Powdery. Very unique smell but soft sillage on my skin. Could be good for layering.

WOW! I've just got it and it smells undeniably masculine, elegant, conferring all the cool of a raw leather biker jacket, creamy and powdery.
