Super original and strong!
This fragrance is really pure leather! And I love it!
In my opinion, the warm note that resonates in the background has something vanilla about it (which, according to the notes listed here, is not at all possible...).
I am also surprised by the grapefruit note mentioned. On my skin, BW&L smells of leather, vanilla and wood throughout, so overall very warm, heavy and indeed a little scratchy, which I associate more with leather than with a citrus fruit I can definitely perceive it on me all day long, on clothes almost for weeks and others notice this scent on me from time to time, which is why I would classify the Sillage as very strong.
Of course, men can also wear this fragrance, after all it is a unisex fragrance, but I find it even more fascinating on women! Something different, which you definitely can't just smell on every corner.

The short-lived Layer King
The old leather armchair of my parents had actually still armrests from German oak - animal skin and wood gave a special smell, fortunately with small Sillage (because who sits already gladly on a smelling piece of furniture). This association first came to my mind, and then the idea of a walk in leather clothes through a forest (certainly not unaffected by the new commercial for this fragrance).

Like the armchair, this little water also seems to me to have a weak sillage - but it is still interesting. Grapefruit refreshes the otherwise dark scent a little; it is not enough for use in summer, but it can be used in spring. It performs even better in the cold season (thanks to the warmth of smoky juniper).

The shelf life is limited with me, typically Eau de Cologne. The "Intense" in the designation probably refers only to the strong leather grape prelude, which already begins to fade after one hour.

In short: A successful leather fragrance with a masculine touch in my opinion. I also like the fruity-floral scents from this British house, but I've waited a long time for something with leather.

If he's a good solo player, he'll be great in duet with other Jo Malone's: Layering is the principle that Jo Malone also promotes. Bronze Wood & Leather can be used to "inhale" the less masculine scents of this house. In the self-test, he has already shown himself to be good next to "English Oak & Redcurrant". There is no indefinable plörre - rather the scents flank each other. Sometimes the currant comes through, sometimes leather. A real layer king for me.
