Olfactive Studio – Collection Sepia – Leather Shot
An organic, deeply-spiced leather over a phalanx of dry, rich woods, Leather Shot feels like the authentic leather scent you’ve been searching for your entire life. The opening causes a stir, a sour orange studded with spicy green cardamom exploding out of the bottle, given a warm, sensual ?human skin’ undertone by a careful dose of cumin.
Powdery iris in the heart relieves the dense spiciness of the topnotes, injecting an airy elegance that carries the scent aloft like a feather on a breeze. The heart is given a rugged, tannic feel by way of a noble black tea accord, halfway between a fresh, milky oolong and a smoky Lapsang Souchong. The dry, rich woods in the base – driftwood, sandalwood, cedarwood – smell slightly toasted, as if scorched by fire, but the driftwood accent also lends a delightful salty, wiry radiance that injects air and light. Leather seen through the lens of a photographer – we love it.
