Good evening everyone!
Today I come to one of Tom Ford's leather fragrances, Ombré Leather from 2018.
No, no, no! This time I don't make the mistake and write or interpret or confuse Spanish words wrong, like "hola!", which I once wrote as one would pronounce it, so "ola"! And Ombre therefore does not mean "man" either, because this is written in Spanish "hombre". I'm not a language genius in general, you should have noticed that with my countless comments!
And quite apart from that, "ombré" here is a French expression anyway, which means shadow and not man or something, so that we at Ombré Leather speak of a shadow leather (or shaded leather, as it says here on Parfumo) instead of a leather man:D And with "shaded leather" I have to think somehow of the dragon "Toothless" from "Dragons tame made easy", because this dragon belongs to a genus which is called Night Fury... but before everybody thinks of me as a little boy again, I prefer to get to the scent quickly.
Personally, I don't have any great expectations at first, but this is only because I don't really like leather scents. But from the quality point of view I expect a reasonably solid scent, which could convince Tom Ford and leather fans and is not as cruel as the "scent of death", which in my eyes is still Black Orchid (EDP) from this brand and one (or actually woman) needs a good portion of madness to find Black Orchid voluntarily good and above all to use!!! But anyway, let's get down to leather!
I'm a leather couch!!
He he, no, but the fragrance starts with intensive leather and smells like freshly polished leather from leather seats or couches etc. and should please everyone who likes such almost heavy leather fragrances.
There are also sweet scents of jasmine, I would say, but later it becomes more of an ambry sweetness. I also smell cardamom, which gives the fragrance a slightly green, herbaceous and spicy touch.
But leather is the main scent, which you can also smell very well in the ascending scent cloud, while with the other scents you have to look to the scent pyramid to be sure what you actually smell.
Also much later one smells mainly leather, but this fragrance becomes softer with time. By that I don't mean that it would smell like suede or something, but that the intensity goes down, combined with sweetish amber, which makes the scent softer (and more beautiful) anyway. In the later base you can only smell softer leather and amber, perhaps with a hint of earthy patchouli (if you sniff very close to the sprayed area!). The fragrance is okay now, and as I said, I think that leather fans will like it a lot more, because I can't do much with such a fragrance.
The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is quite high. Sprayed on, one is then wrapped in a large scent cloud, which is the bigger the more one sprays this scent also on the clothes. From about half the shelf life, however, the fragrance loses a large part of its intensity, so that you would have to get a little closer to smell it on one or the other. The shelf life is about fourteen hours, then it will be quite close to the body (with me).
The bottle is elliptical in shape and matt black in colour. On the front there is a recess or indentation in which a leather label has been embedded and shows the name of the fragrance. The lid is also elliptical and matt black. All in all a nice and noble looking bottle.
Soo, that was Ombré Leather from Tom Ford. First of all I have to emphasize again that I don't like leather scents that much, so this scent didn't knock me out of my socks. I think that leather fans might like the smell, but it is for real hardcore leather fans (yes, I know exactly how it sounds again,... and if you think of the same thing as me, then at least I know that you have exactly the same dirty thoughts, you newts! D) could have been a little too tame, because the intensity of the leather note might not be as high as it was assumed at the beginning.
But later he smells not so bad, especially with the amber, so that he leather fetishists ... uh... I meant of course leather fans might like it after all. I therefore recommend testing the fragrance, preferably in autumn or winter, because despite its later soft radiance it is still an intense fragrance that would be extremely overwhelming in summer.
So, that's it. Finally another Kommi published here, and I bet nobody will read it... *sigh* He he, but I wish you all a nice evening anyway :D
See you soon :)
