Black Suede Leather fragrance notes

Reviews of Black Suede Leather

On my skin this is very similar to Midnight in Paris by Van Cleef & Arpels. Very powdery, maybe slightly leathery but the baby powered scent comes though the most.

Imagine a lightly worn leather jacket. Not a heavy leather note. That is kind of what it smells like.

Overall: 3.5/10
Longevity: 4/10
Sillage: 4/10

I beg to disagree with shamu, I do smell the leather, actually it is the dominant note according to my nose. The spices are there, but way back in the background. The heart is a nice woody tobacco flower with still some leather, fading fast thou. The drydown is a weak cedar but the leather comes back and ends up drowning the cedar note to just a mere wimper.
I would like to give a thumbs up to this fragrance because I really like it, but the sillage and longevity are really miserable, 2 hours tosp.

Good fragrance, but where's the leather? I have to knock a couple of points off this one because there are no leather notes in this at all.

Having said that, Black Suede Leather is a good knockoff of D&G's The One Gentleman. It really does smell almost identical to it. This means you get a dark, woody and spicy scent that smells manly, but won't offend anyone either. Dominating notes are ginger, tobacco, patchouli and cedar, with everything rounded off with some warm amber to finish it all off.

Nothing spectacular or groundbreaking here, but it's inexpensive, comes in a cool bottle, and smells good.

It's a nice scent, and also cheap.
The only thing that i hate is that i got the "non-spraying" version of it, probably because it was at a clearance sell.
I use it mostly as an after shav. I don't like to get some on my palm and rub it on my clothes.. so...

I recommend it, powerful scent for a powerful man.

Smells nothing like the original black suede. No powdery note. I like the original black suede but it is a very old school scent. Black suede leather is very modern. Clean. Fresh. I sprayed Cuba wild heart, and Ed hardy's love and luck, and especially on dry down these smell almost identical to black suede leather. BSL is just slightly "less sweet" than the other two. But has the same semi-modern fresh designer scent. It is a wonderful scent especially for a younger guy. My wife loves it. Smells very expensive. Sillage is average, as is longevity. But at $10 a bottle, it's a steal. Not sure why it's not more popular. If more people knew it was so good, it wouldn't be so unknown. No one will smell this and ever think its an Avon frag. They'll easily think you spent 4-5x the price tag. Smells classy.

I have come to the point where my experience with scents is good enough to crown AVON the King/Queen of "powdery" scents.

Avon's two top "powder" scents, to me, are Mesmerize and Black Suede Leather.

This is a great floral/lite leather/powder-like aroma for men. I do see it as a 12 month scent for the gentleman day or night and for just about any event on your social calendar.

I don't see it as evolving much from the beginning to end but to me it matters little when it is a rather unique smeller!

Also, as most perfume/cologne collectors know, Avon makes this available at a great price!
