Amazing Perfume!!

African Leather is a fragrance that captures the essence and sensory richness of the African continent. It opens with a captivating blend of spices that immediately grabs your attention. The cardamom, cumin, and saffron create a vibrant and intense first impression. These spices offer a spicy and slightly boozy opening, which, although initially aggressive due to the cumin, softens quickly.

At the heart of the fragrance, African Leather truly shines. A chocolatey patchouli emerges, stealing the show with its richness and depth. This gourmand nuance weaves together with the spices, creating a complex and enveloping olfactory experience.

However, the dry down of African Leather can be polarizing. The base becomes overly sweet, reminiscent of the syrup left at the bottom of a dessert. This finish might be disappointing for those who were captivated by the spicy and rich notes that characterize the opening and heart of the perfume.

Despite its name, African Leather is not a traditional leather scent. Saffron is often interpreted as suede leather, but in this composition, the leather is not prominent. This could come as a surprise for those expecting a fragrance dominated by leather notes.

In summary, African Leather is a fragrance that captures the imagination with its spicy start and gourmand heart, but may leave some longing for more in its final act. It’s a bold choice for those seeking a fragrance that deviates from the conventional and are not afraid of a prominent sweetness in its evolution.

Bad performance

African Leather is not what i expected. The perfomance and projection is not up to standard.

Dear Saheed,

We are sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your experience with African Leather perfume.

Please keep in mind that the performance of a fragrance can vary depending on various factors such as temperature, humidity, air dryness, etc. We also recommend trying to apply the perfume on hydrated skin to extend the projection.

We understand that perfumes are very personal items and not every scent may suit everyone's preferences. That is why we offer a wide range of fragrances, and we would be more than happy to assist you in finding the perfect match for you. Please do not hesitate to contact our Customer Service for further assistance.

We hope to have the opportunity to make your next experience a more positive one.

Best regards,

Likes: The experience of feeling like I was in an art gallery full of scents.
Improvements: The woman working in the store the day I made my purchase was extremely unfriendly, and stressed me out the entire time. She put out a vibe as if I was bothering her, which made me feel like I was walking on egg shells. Every question I had, I hesitated asking because of her hostile nature. It made me want to just leave, but I made my purchase anyway. She never engaged me AT ALL, or asked me questions about what scents I like. Despite this, she stood close by watching me, but never offering assistance. Please work on interpersonal skills with this person. You can see who it was based on the day I made my purchase.
A New Favorite

It's like the Sinead O'Connor song: Nothing Compares to You"!
This is a very unique scent and it is unlike anything I have ever experienced, which is all the more reason to love it...

De retour de vacances en Ouganda. J’ai senti des odeurs de verveine, de menthe, de fruit de la passion, d’herbe hautes. Avec ce parfum il y a tellement d’odeur attendues. Un cuir vétiver. Ressemble beaucoup à d’autres terre d’hermes. Bref l’impression d’avoir un parfum qui va plaire et pas singulier. Désolé de cet avis un peu négatif
