Acqua di Parma 'Leather' review

In Review…

Hello friends!! Today I want to share a fragrance with you all which I have been meaning to tell you about for a while. It’s a fragrance my boyfriend has been besotted with for the past few months and I too, love it when he wears it. I’m talking about Acqua di Parma Leather; it’s warm, intense and very sexy. As you might expect, the dominant accord is leather; warm and beautifully aged. It has supporting notes of ripe oranges and lemons, as well as a soft, velvety rose, warm and resinous cedar and herbaceous accords. The leather is intense and confident, the orange and petitgrain are warm and inviting, and the rose and honeysuckle are sensual. The thyme and cedar add an unexpected twist to the fragrance, which remind me of antiques and apothecaries. Acqua di Parma Leather reminds me a little of Penhaligon’s Sartorial, or Tom Fords Tuscan Leather, both of which are wonderful, so if you love either of those classic mens fragrances you should give this one a try also, because it’s just as magical. Only with Acqua di Parma Leather you get a twist of ripe oranges and lemons and a hint of herbs. It’s SO good!

Acqua di Parma Leather is out now and available from and John Lewis. It is priced at £197 for 100ml bottle.
