Wow, your leather jacket smells great!
You’ve got to give Guess credit for one particular detail in the creation of Suede. When it was released in 2007 every designer label had it’s own banal version of Aqua di Gio or Cool Water. Or something called “sport” or “fresh” or “blue”. It would have been easy for Guess to follow this same path in an attempt to cover its economic backside. Instead it seems as though they intentionally created Suede to reflect the image and character of their leather and denim clothing line. Even though Suede will never achieve classic status, kudos to Guess for having enough sense to stay true to their core corporate image.

And do you know what? While it’s not a great fragrance, Suede manages to do a respectable job as a casual leather scent. There’s nothing incredibly original about it, but Suede is pleasant, has good longevity and actually smells like its namesake scent. That’s more than can be said for many designer fragrances. It’s dominant accord is a leathery, masculine edged suede, not a glove soft scent. By giving the leather accord a bit of an edge, Guess probably thought it was reducing the risk of Suede being perceived as a feminine fragrance. In reality, it's a completely unisex fragrance. Also, that bit of edge in the leather accord helps articulate Suede just enough so the wearer feels comfortable with its presence and projection without the fragrance drawing too much attention to the wearer. Something of a leather air freshener to match your Guess branded leather jacket

On the down side, it’s too bad Suede’s positive qualities are hidden quietly in the background and not fully developed. Some of the notes that could have made this an interesting scent are restrained to the point that they can only be smelled directly on the skin: vetiver, sandalwood and an accord of herbs and spice. The sandalwood is especially nice in its interaction with the leather accord. It's all there but buried so Suede will have broad appeal and not offend anyone. If everything had been ratcheted up a few notches and there was a slightly softer feel to the leather accord (making this a true suede scent) then Suede might have garnered some respect.
