Falcon Leather by Matiere Premiere
100ml Eau de Parfum
Olfactive Family – Dry Woods
Perfume Author – Aurélien Guichard
Falcon Leather started with the idea of creating a Leather fragrance inspired by the Falconer’s glove.
The Creative approach was to exacerbate the power of the note at the start thanks to Saffron. Unfold and enrich the texture of Birch Tar to evoke both sides of leather: highlight the smooth full-grain side with Cistus Labdanum Andalusia, amplify the soft suede side with Benzoin Absolute Laos.
Head Notes – Saffron
Heart Notes – Benzoin from Laos, Cistus Labdanum
Base Notes – Birch Tar
