The Horse Whisperer
It's one of those crisp autumn mornings with the pungent, dry air, and as the wind sneaks under my clothes, I feel it on my skin and in my bones. A wind that whips the grass, making it stick to my boots. The sun can barely break through the impenetrable gray clouds. I enter the stable and open the heavy wooden doors. A fiery scent of saddle leather, wood with fences, mixed with amber and straw, invades me. Its ancient smell stands out clearly in the freezing morning air; it is the essence of freedom. The leather joins the wind; the grass heats with the wood. This is True Leather for me. One gloomy October afternoon, I checked all six items in the Country Exclusive men's collection. They were the same as the namesake of the Women's Exclusive Collection, but this one has something superior.

To begin with, other users here and there suggested a myriad of connections. Personally, when tested side by side with Ombré Leather (2018) Eau de Parfum, the latter turns out to be sweeter and more floral. I see a recall with Arabi Cana; there is an agreement that smells of ash and charcoal smoke in both of them. Last but not least, it shares the mossy vibe of Evernyl, which is evident in Baccarat Rouge 540 Eau de Parfum. Thus, True Leather is on the same baseball field with the fragrances mentioned above, although it is not a clone of them. And it is excellent, so damn great. This line from Zara is really about convenience in the niche, which doesn't mean wearing something that smells expensive, but access to more elegant, non-traditional olfactory experiences. Both masculine and feminine collections focus on an iconic ingredient by sublimating it among other allied notes, and True Leather aims to explore the nomadic leather. The keynotes are saffron, evernyl, and rough leather. Around these three elements, pink pepper, caramel, orris, coumarin, birch oil, green vetiver, and dry amber accord define the character of the composition.

When I splash it on my skin, there is a powerful boozy punch with a hint of gin, smoky hot ash, and crispy leather jackets. Then there is a slightly spicy note from the saffron, which adds a pleasant, unusual warmth to the perfume. Interestingly, the hint of the leather accord that is peeking on top suffices to declare that this perfume will be all about leather—a bold and sophisticated one. Even a touch of sweet and acidic citruses reminiscent of bergamot linger in the background.

In the middle of this excitement, pink pepper gives out its rich and peppery facet, beautifully blends well with the burnt and caramelized accords. They give a pleasant touch to the body of this composition, strengthens the aromatic and smoky aspects. The hay element also seems stronger. Iris is buttery, not lipstick-like, just powdery and dry, and plays with amber, which adds a delightful sweet depth to everything and reduces it.

The base has dry hints of mossy and earthy tones, still smoky as if you were sitting near a crackling bonfire. The leather is now at the peak of its splendor. This type of leather is usually harsh and aggressive; though, it pleasantly arranges with the notes of coumarin and amber. A powdery, creamy, and toasted tonka bean gives softness to the leather accord, making it less aggressive, more delicate. Amber completes this effect, scenting balsamic, honeyed, and animal, like shiny dark brown skin.

When initially sprayed, it has a good amount of sillage, which tones down about one hour later. And longevity is average; it lasts on clothes for a long time. About season, a Fall and Winter scent, mainly for the crisp day, evening, and night out. Ultimately, there is a sexy and mysterious smokiness to the chord that reminds me of amber wood, tobacco, and birch tar. That atmosphere that you breathe in a luxury living room with the smell of leather sofas, wooden furniture, and cigars. I am eager to interpret leather and its characteristics: deep, mysterious, yet so tempting.

I based the review on an 80ml bottle I have owned since October 2020

This fragrance is a dream!
When you spray it for the first time, there is a strong blow of pungent leather, smoke and hot tobacco. Then there is a slightly sweet and spicy note from saffron, which adds a pleasant exotic warmth to the scent.

After drying, there is a woody smell with earth and moss underneath, as if you were lying in the forest with a fire burning that keeps us warm. Amber also adds a pleasant and sweet depth, balancing the fragrance.

It is reminiscent of autumn, with dry leaves on the ground and brown tones (similar to the color of the liquid). It looks great when we wear a leather jacket and matching boots. Still, I use it at other seasons and it never disappoints. In winter, with the colder weather, it seems to keep us warm. In spring, as it is not a very heavy fragrance, I use it on the coolest days (at night, it looks great!).

In my skin it had an incredible duration (more than 7h) and a good silage. The best part is that it lasts for a whole day! It may be seen as unisex, but I think it is better for men. Well done Zara!

Modern and Elegant real Leather
Greetings everyone,
this perfume, in my opinion, has a higher quality than the usual Zara perfumes.
The scent focuses on the aroma of leather. it's an intense, elegant, masculine scent with a twist of sweetness on the bottom that makes it modern and current. It doesn't taste chemical or artificial. Easily approaches a niche perfume while costing very little. I paid 15.95 euros for it. To my nose smells mainly of luxurious leather accompanied by an initial splash of bergamot accompanied by hints of vanilla and amber in the background. I think it is currently one of the perfumes with the Best value for money on the market. Perfume suitable for autumn and winter. Highly recommended!

The pandemic made people unaware of some Zara unquestionably very good fragrances. Spices, vetiver, leather and my astonishment in a bottle.
