About this Note
Rich, animalic and sensual with hints of smoke and saffron.
Leather is unmistakably (and unapologetically) animalic. Drawing on ingredients like castoreum, ambergris and tar, this wild beast of a character can be tamed with citrus, spicy and green notes.
Interestingly, the smell of leather (or what we associate with the smell of leather), is actually derived from the herbs, spices and ambers used to tan animal hide, and in the process mute the less pleasant odour of animal carcass. The perfume industry in fact grew out of the scenting of gloves for aristocrats.
