Bundled in blankets by a roaring fire.

No reviews yet?? Ok...here goes...
 
  So, for me, leather notes can be either full on amazing or absolutely NO for me. I ADORE Snake Skin and Western Diamondback. I tried to like Whip, and Riding Crop, was too strong. So, with that being said, I thought I would try this... thinking the nut note might be an interesting co-star to the leather. (nut notes are the same for me as leather notes).
 
In the decant, sniffing....I get a little whiff of the leather... the chestnut is also present, but neither are overwhelming.
 
In my damp hair, it changes.... it really smells like there is a smokiness to this... a bonfire smoke added. The leather and the chestnut are not front and center, but they are there... so that with the smokiness, is actually quite lovely. It has a good throw for me, so this is one that would be perfect for an outside campfire, but not sure it would be welcome in any work-place setting if you have to be in close proximity to someone. :) 
 
As it dries a bit, it is a leather, (not suede) that was hung near a fire...the leather is surprisingly not over-cloying, but still can smell it around my head!! if you are a leather fan and love the bonfire smoke smell, this is for you! :)

Zipline leather note, but with warm nuts and bonfire instead of cinnamon buns. I really like this one.

This is very woodsy, and I really get the "roaring fire" aspect, but more like an outdoor bonfire in the woods. The leather is subtle to my nose, more like suede. The spice is subtle as well, but detectable. I can't say that I can pick out the chestnuts. Overall, a lovely outdoorsy sort of scent.

Woody smoke,  with a whiff of leather and nuts. I mainly get nuts and woods. Medium throw and wear length.
