Created for the eponymous artist’s Foundation, Tom of Finland, is an ode to masculine beauty. It is that rare marvel, a clean leather scent. There is no tar here, just a delightful hint of smoke that lingers over a clear watery accord, blending the tang of lemon with the sparkle of aldehydes. The fragrance enhances the perfume of one’s freshly-showered skin, revealing the true sensual power of a wearer’s own aroma. We adore the aromatic, forest-like aspect of the fragrance: birch, pine, cypress and galbanum are simultaneously reminiscent of the great outdoors and, surprisingly in such a modern creation, of some of the most elegant masculine scents of the past. The softness of the base of suede, vanilla, tonka bean and orris is a bliss that lasts forever. A new cult favorite for the lovers of leather perfumes of both genders.
