    A*Men: Les Parfums de Cuir / Pure Leather by Thierry Mugler

    The olfactory structure in here is the A* Men's classic one (bombastic patchouli, minty helonial/synthetic lavender, coffee/chocolate/honey accord- absolutely fainter than in its predecessor-and cedary musk with a touch of smoke) but this one possesses effectively that type of "vintage shoe and boots store" effect that characterizes the soul of the juice itself, darkening the general atmosphere and creating a futuristic game of contrasts (vintage/ metallurgical). I absolutely smell the tarry/ambery/barely incensey (anyway dusty because of styrax and may be hints of incense) effect in the air over a dark leather/patchouli/coffee accord. I finally detect a sort of gummy/ambery black synthetic suede with a tinge of aromatic green elements. I feel less caramel in the final outcome, more sharp dustiness and less sweetness (or anyway an equal level in comparison with A*Men). Another chic and daring Mugler's creation for the lovers of the synthetic experimentalism.
