True luxury doesn’t shout. If you’ve been on the hunt for the perfect leather but been either smothered by an avalanche of powdery florals or slapped around the face by a Cossack’s oily winter boot, then breathe a sigh of relief because “your” leather has finally arrived. Putting Ombre Leather 16 is like slipping into a pair of the sleekest handmade leather Oxfords in the velvety hush of a store you have to ring a bell to get into.
Enigmatically rich but dry, this is a leather that sings a song of pure, smooth luxury leather, with no excess powder, fruitiness, engine oil, or plasticky saffron to ruin your enjoyment. A touch of violet leaf adds a cool, watery greenness, but overall, this is not a translucent or vegetal leather. Like the ombre effect on a luxury leather jacket, this is a scent that bleeds one note into the next, building to a successively impressive effect – black leather over purple jasmine over earth-brown patchouli over green violets over white moss. The mood might be somber, but this is one leather scent that doesn’t fade out to grey. Like the best handmade leather shoes and well, everything Tom Ford, this is both sturdy and rich.

I’ve been on the lookout for a leather based scent. This one is very nice but turns a touch lemony on my skin. The hunt continues.
Ombre Leather 16
Ombre 16 out of all the leather scents I ordered, will be the one I want to invest in.
Ombre Leather 16
Overall, it’s ok, but not a great leather fragrance. Smells more like new car plastic type leather rather than a belt, saddle, or jacket type leather. It does get mellower after drydown, but quite weak on my skin.
