Smoky - Woody Notes
This is one of the best, if not the best leather fragrance I have. It lasted for ages, even after showering. Highly recommend
I first discovered Santa Maria Novella products at one of your boutiques while living in Bangkok over 10 years ago. I tried several of the other fragrances over time, but none stood out for me as much as “Peau d’Espagne”. After leaving Thailand I was based in Jakarta and located a small Santa Maria boutique there, but it was not well stocked and for the past 7 years was never able to find my favourite fragrance. Unexpectedly, while in Australia recently one of my daughters told me about the Santa Maria Novella flagship store in Sydney, so I ordered it online and received it within a week. I have been using it everyday since, and have received more complements from random people than ever. One in particular was a woman working in a cigar shop whom would not let me leave until I told her what the fragrance was, and where to buy it! Since then both my son (23 yr) and daughter (25 yr) have asked for the same fragrance, obviously demonstrating the incredible universal appeal of “Peau d’Espagne”, regardless of gender or age.
When trying this fragrance in the shop in Genova I was captured by it. The shop employee advised me to try it and return back later that day. She was right, the scent kept changing and staying noticable (in mid winter time). I bought it right away. Pleant about it is that it is very distinct but not overweighted. Peau d'Espagne now is my favorite eau de Cologne for afternoon and evening use. Interesting is that even quite a lot of people ask for it for they like it too.
