    I missed the bottle, so I'm glad someone sent me a tester wet: soft papery leather, almost sweet but quickly sours, faint, low-throw rather "yellow" dry: definitely more leather but still sour. I don't get "books" at all

    BUBBLEGUM!! lol seriously, all I get is sweet, red, fruity bubblegum. then some sweet musk and florals

    You're a Daisy If You Have

    The gun powder comes out shooting! It's STRONG! It overpowers the other notes. Then it turns to some SOUR leather. I can't pick out anything else

    Pumpkin Spice Silkybat Hair Gloss

    oh lovely! and pleasantly STRONG! I haven't tried silkybat either and I wouldn't say I get "pumpkin spice" here, but it IS sugary and sweet with a very tame patchouli. it's pleasantly rich. really, the hubby and I can't place what it smells like, but we LOVE it haha so, possibly not a helpful review, but one of the nice things abut hair gloss is that body chem doesn't screw with it, so it's worth trying (or wearing at certain times when body chem changes )

    Twelve Drummers Drumming Hair Gloss

    I love most of the Lab's leather scents with De Sade and Brom Bones being my favs that being said, this is far too heavy and biting for me. This is BLACK LEATHER which is not either of the above two and the chrome is equally as strong and very "metallic" (as opposed the lab's softer "iron" notes) I can see how some says "cologne" but for me it's one oil slick away from a biker's garage shop in fact, it reminds me of Mutant Hot-Rodders from Hell High (another one I like), but 12 Drummers is still way more leather and metal

    La Death Darkness Black Black Hats

    oddly sweet, old soap/poutpourri? maybe this is the cashmere? I can't even nail down any of the notes with my nose --- definitely no leather

    in the bottle it's a nice leather and grease, but on my skin it's all aftershave a very clean, soapy aftershave now "soapy" on my skin is usually a skin chemistry thing, but with an aftershave note it's hard to know for sure

    I am not a coffee fan (drink or smell), and I'm not a bit fan of foodie scents, but I am a huge fan of leather scents so I was really hoping the leather would win out, but I popped open the imp and was greeted immediately by coffee. Honestly, I've smelled better coffee, but it's definitely coffee. Bitter coffee. On my skin, it's coffee first. And then. Cookies. Sugar cookies...maybe lemon cookies. Very sweet. Cookies overtake coffee. There might possibly be some leather in there, but if so it's a soft suede-like leather.

    Salzburg Krampuslauf

    clean perfume with something kinda woody/fruity and lavender underneath that. Mostly clean. low throw maaaaaaaaaaaybe kinda reminds me of snow in the woody/fruity part

    Schere, Stein, Papier!

    blackberry ..... cleaner? like astringent cleaner. blackberry liquid soap? that's also tangy sweet? ok...within 20 min it's super candy-like blackberry with a warm coffee/leather undernote (if I really sniff for it)
  12. Philipp Peter Roos Caramelized wood resins, black peppercorn, and leather. I'm still new to testing out HG scents, so I got a 4ml tester in a spritz bottle so I could actually spray it on my hair. I was hoping for leather. What I got was sickly sour yellow biting wood. As it dries peppercorn comes out, which just adds more bite. Turns to a kind of powerdery sour wood resin with an acrid bite. It bothers my sinuses. And a couple little squirts goes a long way!
  13. hi! leather fan here! but it IS leather...more of a brown leather sour brown leatherish with a bite... settles to a less sour leather and a touch of peru balsam (sweet)/hay/frank actually it reminds me a little of some of the annual Krampus scents (except 2014, which is totally different and the only one I wear)...but more Cowboy if that makes sense lol...not the tack, the Cowboy it goes on strong, then low-med throw

    The Tastes of the Duke Were Peculiar

    I was hoping for leather (I'm a fan) but no a very nice mandarin orange, some floral, turns a bit bubble gum later. Low throw that fades after a couple/few hours
  15. Frans Hals Black teakwood with frankincense, leather, myrrh, and lemon rind. I've only tried a few hair glosses, so bear with me, I don't have a ton of experience trying these or reviewing them compared to perfume oils. (for the record I ADORE It is Gold! It is Gold! and can still smell it the next day or even after washing my hair depending on shampoo) I was looking forward to this one because I'm a leather lover. I got a 4ml tester in a spritz bottle so I could actually spray it on my hair. Well, the lemon is lovely! It's very fresh, clean, and lemony...and not at all "lemon cleaner". I really like this lemon note. Unfortunately, that's about all I get...and it doesn't last long. Within 2-3 hours it's basically gone. Many hours after that if I sniff the part of my hair I sprayed versus a part I didn't (long hair) I can smell a difference - that there is *something* on the part I sprayed and still mostly lemony. I hope others have better luck than I did with this one.
