The LARPingest leather coin purse
Destrier from House of Matriarch is perhaps the first leather scent I have ever not just tolerated but actually liked. It’s a kind of 360° immersive scent and absolutely immediate, with no lead-in or preamble. Imagine you are an overachieving LARPer, and you took three years of leatherworking classes so that you could make the perfect leather coin pouch to hang from your belt for this intensely anticipated festival you’ve been dying to attend. Even though it’s a tiny piece of a larger, more intricate costume, you want every detail absolutely perfect, from the tanning to the stitching to the embossing. You’ve spent so much time on this accessory that you’re smelling those tanning agents, those fats and oils and musks, even in your dreams now. And in waking life, too, even after the event, you are one with that leather coin purse, and you carry it with you everywhere you go, stuffed with cedar chips, sweet grasses, and soft moss…because you spent all your coins on those classes.
