Tom Ford Private Blend Eau de Parfum's are expensive, super expensive but in the instance of Tom Ford Tuscan Leather Eau de Parfum worth every penny. It is easily one of the sexiest scents I have ever had the pleasure of trying and owning. Yes Tuscan Leather is aimed at men but trust me ladies it is a winner and completely unisex in my opinion...
"Tom Ford's Tuscan Leather from the Private Blend collection is an intense and powerful scent. A Chypre blend of notes brings a raw, yet reserved sensuality to this original take on a classic leather scent. Notes of Tunisian orange flower, black suede and amberwood produce a rich sensuality, combined with leather, black pepper and tobacco leaf to produce its enduring intensity. While Moroccan grapefruit flower, unique to Tom Ford for Men is harvested by hand and distilled immediately to preserve its precious scent."
Yes Tom Ford Tuscan Leather Eau de Parfum has a slightly leathery note but overall I'd say it is an intense floral, deep, rich yet buttery soft - sometimes this smells a little cocoa based on me and at other times I get a strong, fruity twist. It is a little spicy yet very sensual, warm with just the right level of masculinity. If you are female and find yourself drawn to men's fragrances this is the one for you. I can not think of anything off the top of my head that this smells identical to but if you are familiar with and enjoy Gucci by Gucci Eau de Parfum, I have a sneaky feeling this will be one you won't be able to resist.
