I saw that Perfume Posse just had a similar topic earlier this week. But I swear I had this question in my head before I saw that post (something must be in the air!). And since not all of my loyal SQ participants read or comment there, I decided there would be no harm in talking about leather perfumes again here.
Saturday Question #137:
What Are Your Top 5 Leather Perfumes?
Do you wear them in general? How often? Do you prefer them in colder weather?
Bonus question: what is your favorite leather product? (Not perfume-related)
When I came up with my answer to this question, I was somewhat surprised by the fact that after ten years since I published In the Search for the Perfect Leather post (below, I decided to re-use one of the photos from it), in addition to all the perfumes that I mentioned there, I can add just two new leather perfumes that I really-really liked – one for my vSO (Tom Ford Ombre Leather) and one for me (Neela Vermeire Creations Ashoka). The other four from my list (I won’t count my vSO’s perfume) are:
- Chanel Cuir de Russie
- Serge Lutens Boxeuses
- Six Scents Nappa Noir
- L’Artisan Parfumeur Traversee du Bosphore
As to the non-perfume-related items, I like Nappa leather bags/purses. I know these are less sturdy than other leather types, but I loooove soft and supple leather for my bags.
