ΓΦΛ Parfum Fin Nabucco for women and men, 2014
A spicy leather scent with a sensuous heart and a masculine base.
With fresh sweet opening it quickly progresses to an oriental heart richly infused with licorice- like anise and an incense-like olibanum. This fragrance is in essence the coming together of the male and the female in the most sacred union to create what is masculine and feminine in perfect balance.
A powdery soft violet reveals itself just as the woods make their way into my nostrils. And this sensual intoxicating opening gives way to a more animalic and masculine dry down. With heavy leathery accords the spiciness of fenugreek and musky undertones all create an alchemy of the very male smells.
The greek symbols Γ which is the symbols for Gamma comes together with Φ which is the symbol for Phi along with Λ greek symbol Lambda, the reflection of which creates L-O-V as in love. This olfactive representation of the idea of the perfect male and female as one, is what intrigues me so much. It is also a more carnal idea of love or perhaps love-making that I can smell very vividly in this rare presentation.
Tuscan Leather by Tom Ford for women and men, 2007
A fragrance that showcases Leather in its most exquisite and distinguished state.
Some people compare this to cocaine in a bottle, so while personally I have no inclination to experience a substance-high, this sensorial high is one I crave from time to time. And thanks to Mr. Ford and my husband for marking Tuscan Leather his signature scent, I have no shortage of doses of this wonderful and sexy olfactive drug!
Its so powerful with a highly aromatic opening comprised of saffron, and thyme, with a 'rasp' raspberry that creates an instant spike. The heart which is infused with frankincense and jasmine, is where you smell the Narcostics! This fragrance remains strong and stable where soon after the initial spray, rich animalic accords begin to show themselves. The finest leather reveals itself, like stroking a buttery hide on a surface, smooth to touch and yet tough. Resinous amber and a slightly dry suede-like facet along with woods create a powerful background to this scent.
Dzing! by L'Artisan Parfumeur for woman and men, 1999
A gourmandy leather-wood scent from 1999 with a more classic disposition.
This indulgent scent was intended to evoke the idea of a circus, think caramelised apples, candy canes, leather harnesses, trapeze artists and women with ostrich feathers parading across, grease, grime,sweat and hilarity in the air...and the glorious awe-inspiring presentations of the beasts and creatures.
I love scents which have imaginative and colorful themes, it makes the experience of smelling and wearing it that much more pleasing and satisfying!
Dzing opens with a caramelic-candied opening, it smells slightly soapy intermittently to me, but that could be a combination of leather, tonka and woods. Intoxicating spices and musk add an uplifting touch to this scent which surprisingly fresh.
This scent is retro chic just the way I like it!
