Les Nombres d'Or - Cuir After The Fire
Three hours in and this is a strong, linear scent. Dabbed-on projection is a handspan out. The label says leather, but I have to politely disagree: there could be bitter, hard, unforgiving saddle leather here, but primarily my nose says 'ashes'. If...

Silver Iris An Iris By Any Other Name

Synthetic fresh leather accord meets with sweet patchouli resulting in the fun scent of gummy cola bottles. Bizarre and edible combination.

I love smoky scents (Arso, Hamdani etc) but this is full-on BBQ complete with sticky sweet BBQ sauce. Yum for some, but blind buyer beware.

Apple shampoo opening, soapy powder drydown. Pleasant but not what the notes list and marketing suggests - not recommended for blind buy.

Coconut milk, fluffy synthetic musk and plastic bandaids. Not as sweet or cloying as the notes suggest; surprisingly refined, yet moreish.

Dry saddle leather and creamy florals. Shame the middle notes don't last; a leather and rubber drydown. Bring back the "virginal" tuberoses!

LDDM with the sweet ambergris Tauerade dialled down and an extra chord of citrus/neroli added to top and middle for extra bite and clarity.

I've sniffed my fair share of oud/rose/gourmand combos but this one is a treasure - balanced and blended very well.
