Your fragrance wardrobe should contain at least one perfume that belongs to the olfactory group of leather and one good suggestion could be the most recent masculine scent from the Italian Fashion House Cerruti. L’Essence de Cerruti was introduced in 2009 and belongs to the above mentioned category, as a creation of the perfumer Antoine Lie. According to the vision of its creator, L’Essence de Cerruti embodies the masculine elegance in contemporary leather structure. Moreover, a description from the official website mentions that this is the scent for “a sensual and elegant man, charismatic and alluring”.
With these images in my mind, I tested L’Essence de Cerruti in 2010 and I was surprised by its consistency and profundity, encountered only in fashion houses with more tradition in perfumery. The simple, uncomplicated ingredients are shaping a structure that could be described as simply irresistible. In the beginning, the combination of Sicilian bergamot and white pepper is meant to awaken your senses. Then, as the top notes evaporates, you will perceive the sensual aroma of leather, wrapped in saffron and woodsy notes. For the dry down, the blend of white musk, amber and cedar wood conferred the perfume a classic elegance.
The bottle that holds L’Essence de Cerruti exhibits a very classic image. Creation of Jean-Paul Knott, the transparent glass reveals a pale yellow liquid, completed by the packaging box that has a textile pattern look. Overall, L’Essence de Cerruti is a sophisticated fragrance that will appeal to all men who are preoccupied by their image.
