Ombre Leather 16
Brand Tom Ford
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.
Violet leaf, cardamom, jasmine sambac, black leather, white moss, patchouli

Not very complex to me but a very nice leather scent. Not similar to Tuscan Leather by TM which is more complex.
Sweeter than Tuscan. It's the only leather jackets I own. I wear the Ombre for a new jacket and the Tuscan Leather for the well-worn.
Seriously I've never received so many compliments from a scent and I have an enviable collection including Clive Christian and yet this Tom Ford scent seems to garner a far greater reaction from both sexes. I was unsure of it based on other reviews and so purchased a small sample but hope to acquire a substantial supply soon. (Footnote) I probably look strange walking around smelling myself all the time but it's so delightful I can't really care how it must look,)
