A tangy opening blast greets me at the start, which is soon morphing into spicy mix.

The drydown continues the theme, and at times the aroma of new suede can be detected, but this has very little to do with genuine Russian Leather - see Chanel, Creed, Santa Maria Novella, Farina etc. This has no birch tar or sandal in it. A somewhat agreeable spice market mix, with touches of camphor and hints of sharpness at times.

I get moderate sillage, excellent projection and a good ten hours of longevity on my skin.

An autumnal spice mix, very synthetic, with little leather and no Russian leather. 2.75/5.

Wow. If I were Russian I might be offended because this animal is still alive.

I was really surprised to log on and see the big list of notes because this fragrance is pretty simple. It is a perfect warm musk. Most musk fragrances are cloying and perfumey in a bad way. This is like sticking your nose in a very clean animal's back, maybe a horse. There is one other scent that seems hay-like but that wasn't quite right. Sweetgrass seems more accurate.

It's actually quite pleasant. It's a little simplistic, but it could be fun to layer. It's really a lovely barnyard scent.

Of course noses are subjective. I asked my boyfriend to smell thinking he's recognize the sweetgrass, He said camphor (OK he said Vicks, but same thing) and something fruity, but I think his nose is crazy.

Haven't seen this one in forever. I remember liking it. It carries a funny memory for me though. Stuck at Naval Air Station North Island, over Christmas of 1978, Myself and another Aircrew cantidate (we were 2 flights away from graduating from flight school when they broke for Christmas, and we had to hang around for school to fire back up after New Years). Being healthy young sailors we made the best of it, and on Christmas Eve, went to the Pussycat theatre in downtown San Diego to catch a porn flick. Lol, there were some very attractive young ladies handing out giant,economy sized bottles of this stuff, and I used every drop as it brought back fond memories of the sweetheart who gave it to me. (never saw her again)

elegant, leathery, spicy, with a little hint of sweet (the tiniest bit).

a beautiful frag with quite a bit of staying power for a demeter.

give 'er a whirl if you like a leather scent with out smelling like a tack shop (not that that's a bad thing)
