Surrealistic Red Leather
I think that when Paul says that this is a Leather like no other, he is not joking. I was thinking that this might be so far his most challenging creation for me. It made me feel strange at first, trying to fit what was familiar and odd here, until it ocurred to me that this is a kind of surrealistic leather, something that i never saw before. I get a series of contradictions, of a fragrance that has a butchery, carnal and animalic leather at the same time it smells like birch-like polished boots. The red here causes me a strange impression at first. It hits you strong at the opening and it's such a mixture of colorful materials that produces me illusions, like objects that shouldn't be there but seems to be anyway: i get the pepper,grapefruit, but at the same time i get an intense passionfruit aroma, which seems to turn into rhubarb very fast. Once i get used with the strangeness of this fruity things in a double leather impression, i see the last demanding sides of it: the powdery, hot carnation aroma, the very discreet use of roses, the boozy bay rum touch, the cedary incense working at background. The complete the scene, work as pieces that seems to produce the normal part of this surrealistic ambience. I don't know if, after understanding it, i'm scared or fascinated. Maybe both? Certainly i would like to smell it more times to understand the strangeness it causes me at first.
