Geo F. Trumper Spanish Leather

Item Description

Various manufacturers of leathers perfume their products. The smells we associate with leather come largely from these added perfumes, and not from the animal skin itself. It is our memories, and our previous associations with these leather products, that helps each of us identify a “leather” scent.

Trumper has one of the most pleasing “leather” colognes. The manufacturer describes it as “A stimulating warm, woody fragrance with subtle notes of geranium, rose, clove bud, musk and patchouli.” I find it reminiscent of a clean, old, well worn saddle. It has a little “soapy” note that offsets the “leather” and gives it some sophistication. I enjoy wearing a little of this when I’m wearing my leather vest.

The splash-on after shave has considerable longevity. It is fairly subtle though, so it is not too dangerous to splash it on. My bottle is “after shave” strength, but a cologne version is also marketed. One might have to exercise a bit more restraint with the cologne version.

Pros: Smells great!

There is something very comforting about the smell of this scent, not only does it make me smell great but it makes me feel good too.

Would recommend anyone to try it.

Pros: Nice smooth and slightly sweet leather
Cons: None
This is a very nice leather that is lightly sweet and enjoyable to wear. I grew up using English Leather which I loved, this was a half century ago so I suspect the newly produced English Leather is not the same. I compared the GFT Spanish Leather to the T&H Spanish Leather and like the GFT version better. It also seems to have better staying power and silage. Definitely a masculine scent. If you like English Leather you will like the GFT Spanish, it's a bit lighter than the English, which may be a good thing.
