Reviews of White Suede

Smooth floral leather, very elegant. The muguet in the beginning is a really nice addition to the leather (which is the same leather as in Tuscan Leather, just a polite and airier version). I can get the rose and sandalwood that, together with the musk, create a soft and plush leather.

Really nice floral-white musk with hints of suede and leather. Totally unisex. Unique in many ways. Has some powdery notes.

Not a bad floral-musk fragrance, White Suede from Tom Ford is not an intense animalic experience per se, but a more subtle, fresh and clean skin scent that either gender can wear without issues.

There is a sensual leather presence that definitely reminds me of suede, being a more toned-down experience than thicker hides. I also get a pleasant ambery powdery finish with White Suede that adds to the positive feel I get.

If you don't expect White Suede to be a wild musky slap in the face, you will appreciate it as the understated, laid-back creation it was meant to be.

A clean white musk scent. Wonderful fragrance, but sits WAY to close to the skin. Sprayed myself at Nordstroms, and by the time I was out of the store, I could only smell it if I lifted my collar to my nose. Great smell, fair longevity, but POOR projection.

Tom Ford White Suede is definitely more my speed than Ombre Leather 16, which just provided a leather-centric accord that is less daring and interesting than Tuscan Leather.

White Suede, by contrast, is a leatehr/floral blend that has quite a unisex appeal. Suede is still the main standout, with contributions from rose, saffron, tea, and amber.

I'm not sure why but it comes off powdery on my skin, a powdery leather floral bit that while walking the unisex line nicely nonetheless comes off as a little feminine, as many powdery fragrances do, and I'd say that this is more exaggerated due to leathers usually being among the most masculine-leaning fragrances.

Performance seems adequate, perhaps slightly better than Ombre Leather 16 but not as good as Tuscan Leather.

FragranceX has this at under $170 so it's on the secondary market at a significant discount from the current retail standard of $225, but I'm not sure I'd spring for a bottle due to the powdery aspect. Still, overall, a pleasant fragrance and a nice softer, unisex alternative to Tuscan Leather.

I initially fell in love with this one.... bought it, but find it to be too feminine on me. It smells great out of the bottle, very unique as I do not believe I have sampled or owned anything similar.
