Perfume and life plain and simple
ooh this one sounds right up my alley (except maybe the swim cap note)
Whatever it is, it's supposed to be one of the Ultimate Leathers. I. Have, Got. To. Try. This.And Josephine, it's all your fault! :)
Josephine on me Knize 10 is intensely leathery. I also get an intense smell like roasted cumin seeds, to the point of nuttiness. It's a great perfume, very distinctive too.
Hi Frida - I think you would like Knize Ten as well. The swim cap note is part of the top note, which morphs and changes through the dry down. It's worth a try - I'd be interested to know your opinion!
Hi tarleisio - I know you're a leather girl, so Knize Ten might be right up your alley! Let me know what you think!
Hi Michael - Knize Ten is leathery on me, too, and darker than I thought it might turn out, judging from the top notes. I love the bitter leather of the base notes - not exactly like Bandit, but a little. Hence the mildew.
