Even though the Russian Leather fragrance isn’t for me, I feel quite pleased that Molton Brown has produced another masculine range (or unisex if you like deep, black tea and leather infused products). Sometimes I think Molton Brown can be a little ungenerous on the amount of fragrance that they give but I could certainly not say that of this. It’s power-packed, particularly the EDT.
So, notes are elemi, black tea and purple basil, Siberian pine, tobacco, birch, vetiver, leather and cade. To me, the black tea, tobacco and leather are the most predominant notes, alongside cade, which is a woody smoky scent. Somehow, despite sounding as though it smells like some fusty gentleman’s club chair, it’s rather modern and exciting. It’s much more a wintery, country walk, snuggly jumper kind of aroma (I’ve now just gone on a weird tangent in my head thinking of 1970’s knitting patterns for men’s fisherman’s sweaters!) and it’s easily one of Molton Brown’s strongest launches for a long while. I think it’s a universal man-pleaser, great man gift, and kind of sexy in a rugged, wood cutter, outdoorsy pursuit kind of way – you can find it at John Lewis HERE.
