    Ferme tes Yeux by JAR

    This a wonderful leather fragrance. It is the darkest colored fragrance in the line, and is a dark whiskey color. The fragrance I originally encountered in the cold glass dish, was complex, deep, rich without being heavy.
    Once you dab it on, FTY kicks off with a bang, a leathery animalic concoction, with some top and middle notes that for some odd reason make me think Ambre Russe, a bitter smelling leathery is not sweet, and there is an organic woody bark/or tea/or camphorous type note. There is a nonsweet amber type basenote, and I think incense.
    After the beginning, much less animalic, and rather dry. Less OTT animalic than say APLS, or Cuir de Russie. If I had to compare this to another frangrance, the dry down reminds me of Black Fleece for Her EdP.
    The wonderful thing about Jar parfums, is that they are the perfect volume, not too loud, but you can smell them.

    My best guess as notes: Leather/Amber/Incense/Jasmine, final answer.

    Try it!

    Once you dab dabb it on, it became a unique, warm sexy leather. Haunting.
