This type of fragrance can be a bit shocking to some noses. Nowadays, they all need citrus, florals, moss (synthesis)and usually amber or patchouli. Most seem to have a touch of dryness, but the rounded ones can be most beautiful and often brooding and sexy. My favourite is the modern version of Bandit by Robert Piguet. There is a stinging top note of galbanum mixing with a heady bouquet of florals before the viciously handsome leather note appears, which finally merges with the patchouli and oakmoss(synthetic). The journey takes my breath away -- especially when that leather accord appears.
