Wow. This is SM now, no? What, for the divine dominatrix' sake, is this guy doing there? What kind of leathery apparatus is he wearing (or digging his face into)?
I mean the review on kafkaesque sounds exciting (minus the norlimbanol). But this ad is too hilarious.


Edit: The more suitable term is probably fetishism instead of SM. But still, this thingy irritates me. It reminds me of the red hot detail here.

Gee, and here I thought that was hi-tech headgear to get a hands-free, super concentrated, sniff of the scent.:laugh: Thanks for the info Hednic.

Held off buying this longer than I thought I could, but finally pulled the trigger, the ninth in the line. Not sure why it is priced 100 Euros more than their other Extraits de Parfum but oh well am looking forward to receiving it. Hope it's as good as the glowing reviews.

The note pyramid and reviews are great, but that price is tough. Thanks a lot for posting this Hednic. Did you order from Europe or here in the US?

My first impressions about Hard Leather are very positive. Only received it a few days ago. The first thing I noticed is that the leather right off packs a wallop upon application, very noticeable but it's not a stark or raw leather. Rather it's a sweet smelling leather, perhaps due to the interplay of the rum with the leather. It continues to maintain the sweetness through the heart, but I wasn't able to pick up any iris, possibly because the honey note seemed to me to be the more prominent. The dry down was great - a nice incensy woody mix of cedar and sandalwood. Didn't get that much oud. Longevity was excellent, but I wouldn't have expected anything less from a extrait de parfum. This has definitely become my favorite of the 9 in the line. Now I can't wait for the next two Extrait de Parfums in 2014 - "Army of Lovers" & "Lost Paradise"

I tried my sample of Hard Leather for the first time yesterday - probably not one that I'd be comfortable wearing as opposed to sniffing on someone else, but pretty much agree with hedic's impressions (wrote down 'boozy, spicy leather' but was then distracted so will return later).
Can't wait to try the other samples!

Edit - Hmm, might wear it actually, or buy it and wear it at home.
Currently enjoying the way that the frankincense & cedar are just toned down a bit by a tiny trace of vanilla.
Nothing unpleasant in here at all.

I can definitely understand your going back and forth on this as it's one that would require some time
getting used to. It's not timid. Glad you were able to get a sample so quickly and try it out.

It's on my 'to do' list - if it came in smaller bottles it would be in my wardrobe by now!

I tried this yesterday. Very fecal in opening. Had to wash it off after 15 mins. I couldnt stand its opening never had a chance to small the dry down.

True, It's either love or hate at first sniff. Not an easy one for everyone to wear. Blind bought a bottle of this. I seem to fall into the former group.

Must have spoken to Clement, yes? Told me the same thing. Isn't he great?

Clement is in Paris for the next week or two. Nik gave me the update.

And yes, both Clement and Nik are wonderful to work with. Very intentive with orders and follow-up. Never have to ask twice.

Seriously considering this one, now that everybody has had some more time to spend with it, what are your current thoughts?

My current thoughts are this is best release of 2013 hands down. I've gone thru 5ml mini bottle, and I'm craving more. I'm going for a 20ml split portion with PalmBeach's splits. Now you got me thinking that might not be enough. A true 5 Star frag in all ways.

OK, I think you and I have very similar tastes, so I need to sample this one asap. What would you compare it to?
