Shadows of autumn
The perfectly shaped autumn.
Yes that comes to mind with Tom Ford's new leather scent.
Of course, you can go here now and Ombre Leather
down to the smallest detail with Tuscan Leather, Ombre Leather12 or
with the Rasasis of this world. This I would but only the Parfumos
who already have one of these fragrances in their collection. Otherwise you might miss the beauty of this fragrance. You can reduce the scent, if and how much raspberry is left over, if Rasasi can do it better and cheaper or maybe Parfums de Marly is the better choice, but you don't have to.
Yes, it has a similarity to OL16 of course, because of the lack of current test possibilities, my comparisons are written from memory. Already with OL16 I liked it that NO raspberry was contained, but was extended by flowery and mossy nuances, it was rounder, softer than Tuscan Leather. To attract attention one was of course "better" served with Tuscan Leather, thank God this is not important for many people.
Ombre Leather won't go down in history as a clubbing monster or disco king now, but he has a lot of charm and subtle beauty.
The otherwise usual Tom Ford eccentricity keeps itself this time clearly within limits, it does not harm im.
For me Ombre Leather has a wonderful dark nappa leather, smooth, thick, no grain. There are of course more authentic leather scents, which one likes to marvel at, but is often difficult for me to wear. I can also grasp woody and flowery streaks, but it's more of a fine-tuning than an accent. For me it's more of a scented carpet that I like very much, that lets me guess that it's not just made of leather. Here, too, one could of course philosophize forever whether the basis is now worthy of signature or private dazzle, but I don't really care, since for me the everyday suitability is very often in the foreground. For me it's just a round unit with relatively little development, it gets a bit weaker over the hours, but also a bit harsher. There are no new impressions, but I don't want to talk about Soliflor or mono-like.
The shelf life and Sillage are very well chosen, no eel Dieter fragrance, but
you have many hours of something from him, you smell yourself also quite long
without over-exerting others.
Conclusion: Great autumn and winter all-rounder, its spiciness now fits wonderfully into the now discoloring forest without offering completely new elements.

Suitability for everyday use: 8/10
Well-being factor: 8/10
Wow effect: 6/10
Price/Performance: 8/10
Idea+implementation: 9/10

A tamed alternative to Tuscan Leather.
Tom Ford Ombré Leather is a fragrance that I bought first and foremost because of the hype that goes with it. I don't have any previous experience with the 2016 "Private Blend" version and saw myself well positioned with Tuscan Leather - but then more and more reviews on YouTube came into my field of vision during the last weeks, and since I myself own a small channel and (to be completely transparent) was keen on the traffic, I ordered a bottle. Most of the reviews on YouTube didn't help me much, because it seems to be on a similar scale as Sauvage and you don't get to know much about the DNA itself. Similar to Tuscan Leather, but more portable and somehow "better". At least that's the info I could pull out.

The round bottle already looked pretty through the screen, a modern, young twist for the otherwise quite "sophisticated" or "old" looking Tom Ford flacons. Matt black, suitable for the New York hipster scene à la Oliver Gustav (best google), with an imitation leather plaque for the name. At Ombré Leather, the chic Private Blend cardboard was replaced with a thinner counterpart, which is also used in Tom Ford's non-perfume cosmetics. The cap sits firmly on the atomizer and grinds past it when taking off, there is no clicking cap. But in total one of the better flacons of TF and more premium than some Private Blend fragrances (if I disregard F'n Fabulous).

Let's get to the scent itself. I'm a big Tuscan Leather fan and caught myself comparing again and again during the test. Tuscan Leather for me is characterised by a "not quite ripe raspberry", which harmonises unmistakably well with the contained leather chord. The Dupes or "similar to TL smelling fragrances" I know, all of them Godolphin from Parfums de Marly with its pronounced citrus note, are basically too sweet for me. The lack of sweetness is what keeps me sniffing at Tuscan Leather and what makes this fragrance special. A polarizing scent, but cleverly made and exactly my taste.

Compared to this, I find the fragrance of Ombré Leather much sweeter and "juicier" than Tuscan Leather. Although I felt reminded of the wow moment of TL during the first spraying, because the leather chord initially hits the nose with comparable strength, but after half an hour at the latest it becomes too heavy, too sweet, too creamy for my nose. I believe that the leather/jasmine combination is responsible for this. The leather remains present in the projection until the end, but on my skin Ombré Leather becomes a sweet creamy candy. The green raspberry is missing and has been replaced by a penetrating floral jasmine chord that becomes very heavy as soon as the leather recedes into the background (after about half an hour). Therefore the fragrance is still balanced in the beginning, but after one hour I feel rather overwhelmed by it. I would have wished for a lot more leather and fewer flowers.

Durability and Sillage are in good midfield with OL. The scent doesn't invade other people's privacy, but it lasts all day. Also here less extreme than TL.

Altogether Ombré Leather is supposed to be a tamed alternative to Tuscan Leather for all those who have always wanted one. But for me it's a lukewarm variation of the eccentric superstar. So I guess he'll be leaving my collection pretty soon.

Tuscan Leather meets Godolphin
As a great olfactory leather lover and owner of various leather fragrances, I also looked this autumn for the latest creations of leather fragrances.
I have to say that leather and leather is a huge difference.
There are cheap imitation leather, ambroxan, suede, dark leather, as well as light leather and many other leathery fragrances.
Most of them fail but crash in combination with other ingredients.
But a few of them manage to caress my nose and move into my collection.
That includes: Tom Ford Tuscan Leather, Parfums de Marly Godolphin, Rasasi La Yuqawam, Memo Irish Leather, Trussardi My Land, John Varvatos Dark Rebel and now also Tom Ford Ombre Leather.

Why Ombre Leather?

Admittedly, the DNA of Tuscan Leather can also be seen in Ombre Leather, but while Tuscan Leather mimics the daring, rich and inviolably smoking macho, Ombre Leather doesn't take himself too seriously and is more pleasing.

I like the floral impact of jasmine almost even better than the sticky raspberry.
Although, to be fair, I have to say that the raspberry in Tuscan Leather, unlike La Yuqawam, is pleasantly restrained.
But anyway, jasmine and cardamom play wonderfully around the leather in Ombre Leather and give it a pleasantly sweet, airy touch without getting annoying.
The largely linear fragrance resembles Parfums de Marly's Godolphin rather than Tuscan Leather on long stretches.
The Wums is not as violent as with Tuscan Leather, however the durability scores with approx. 10 hours on my skin In the drydown Ombre Leather gets a bit sweeter and the dark leather sounds soft and soft
Do you have to have Ombre Leather?

Due to the price of about 100€ /100ml Ombre Leather is an affordable Tom Ford perfume.
But if you can already call Godolphin or Tuscan Leather your own, in my opinion you can do without a third descendant.
Nevertheless Ombre Leather is an excellent and above all also pleasing scent, which I would like to smell however rather with men, than with ladies.

When leather becomes sweet ...
.... and still keeps its own elegance!
I always find that if a fragrance is too sweet, it also loses its elegance..... I don't know if it's just me, but I have the feeling that I'm always with too sweet scents! Unless the perfumer can manage to make a fragrance sweet AND elegant..... and that is exactly what happens here!
I love leather scents and look at these already closely when it comes to a rating.... and I can say: Mr. Ford has this scent really bombastically managed!

Leather: yes
Sweetness: jaaa
Elegance: YES !!

This leather scent is unisex and can be worn by people who love leather but want something different and special in one fragrance.
I don't find it too feminine and also not too masculine....really UNISEX !!

A woman who wears it likes to wear chic clothes to work during the week, which she also loves very much, that is: Blamain Blazer, Christian Louboutin High Heels and a chic red lipstick....and of course Ombre Leather! On weekends she doesn't feel like wearing high heels and a blazer anymore and wears Doc Martens with a stylish dress! But the red lipstick stays...maybe in a brighter colour...and also fits to this outfit...who guesses? Ombre Leather !! :)

Season: AUTUMN !!! :)

Greetings
Angelina Patchouli

I've come across leather
I can still remember my first dark brown and so far only leather trousers. Man, that was a stiff thing! But once you were inside, she sat like a glove and kept you damn warm! Then this leather smell, already very intense, striking, dark, a little dirty. I didn't think it was so great but it just belonged to it.

But leather is not the same as leather. There is leather which smells like just described above, then there is also noble leather which smells very fine, brighter and almost already affectionately. That includes Ombré Leather for me! Such a great leather scent I had so far only very rarely under the nose, am actually not the big leather scent fan, is too much for me and does not fit me somehow completely. This fragrance manages to wrap the leather so well that I'm really thrilled about it!

Hardly sprayed on the fine leather note blows directly towards you, light wood I also smell out and I have a little the feeling that I would smell some iris thereby, although this is not listed. This makes the leather very soft and pleasant. Not long and spicy notes and something sweet are added. This all smells so nice, clean, coordinated and noble. After wearing it for a while something slightly earthy is added which comes from the patchoulie but this is only very minimal. The scent actually doesn't change much anymore, it lies on my skin for many hours now and blows into my nose again and again.

So this fragrance has done it to me directly, find now just in the cooler season an absolute must have fragrance, if you like woody / spicy / slightly sweet leather likes. Thanks Tom for giving me my leather scent! Should definitely have been tested. Price/performance is great!

Very much does smell of leather, opens - to my nose - *sweet* and fruity, but this fades with the drydown to soft, spicy, and floral.

Just smells like fine leather goods, with a fresh fizzy top from the spices and jasmine. Does get a bit pungent as a skin scent, though.
