Irish Leather Fragrance Reviews

SarceloMalas

I'm not into that poetic, scent categorizing, layering stuff, so if you would like that kind of review, just pass it. When its about tastes in any level, its so absurd to even think about stating an absolute truth.
Compared to African Leather, on my skin its slightly less longlasting. ( i would categorize it as moderate). It felt different when i had a sample. I might just get used to it, or the sample had much essence in it, dunno.
But, is pure love. That leather thing, patina/vintage feel, like some good old vine.
With 190EUR per bottle is one of the top prized, with Le Labo, and Frederic Malle, but whoever is into fragrances, as a passion, way or life, will understand it.
This one, needs someone to carry it with the style, something that money can't buy.

I couldn't quite pinpoint what this fragrance reminds me of until I read a comment on here. This is the new car scent in a bottle. Brand new rich leather seats and a balmy juniper fruitiness lingering in the foreground underpinned by a deep animalic quality. Surprisingly, Irish Leather is very much wearable and it's undeniably masculine. Now if only the price weren't so exorbitantly high.

Irish Leather is distinct type of leather fragrance. While leather fragrances are usually attributed with opulent and warm ambience, Irish Leather is backboned by sort of hay-like and traditional herbaceous matte and juniper that deliver green tarnished aromatic Hibernian theme to leather. As in Italian Leather, this one is also not your sumptuous sexy leather stuff but it is quite interesting if you appreciate leather in background.

Irish Leather opens with familiar gassy fresh and stony smell of matte and juniper, that, played on leather, smell like freezing vapor of fridge. Very accurate use of juniper and matte brings light mentholated aura to subsequently dominating leather. It's kind of foggy rural aura married to savory leather.

Once settled completely, the leather turns to acrid and phenolic burnt smell that is deepened by coumarin and soft resins. In general, moderate longevity, medium projection (both enough for such fragrance), and type of "I'm bored of all warm similar Tuscan Leather'ish leathers" leather fragrance!
★★★

آیریش لدر یه جور عطر چرمی متفاوت میشه بحساب بیاد. در حالی که عطرهای چرمی معمولا با رایحۀ ثروتمندانه و گرم مشخص میشن، آیریش لدر با استخوان بندی کاه-مانند و فضای بویایی گیاهان دارویی سنتی، چای ماته و توت اُرس تنظیم شده که حال و هوایی سبز و مات و آروماتیک به چرم میده. مثل ایتالین لدر از همین خانۀ عطر، این یکی هم، اگه دنبال عطر چرمی گرم و سکسی میگردین، عطر شما نیست؛ گرچه میتونه بسیار گزینۀ خوبی باشه اگه طرفدار عطرای چرمی با چرم توی پس زمینه هستین

آیریش لدر با رایحۀ آشنای علف مانند و خنک ماته و اُرس شروع میکنه، که وقتی روی چرم بازی میکنه، بویی شبیه بوی بخار یخزدۀ فریزر داره. استفادۀ خیلی دقیق از اُرس و ماته فضای سبک نعنایی میسازه برای چرمی که به آرامی چیرگی پیدا میکنه. یه جور فضای مه گرفتۀ روستایی نمور که با رایحۀ نمکین چرم مخلوط شده

وقتی عطر به بطن کار میرسه، چرم حالتی دِبش و حیوانی سوخته میگیره که با کورماین و تِم رزینی نرم عمیق شده. در مجموع، موندگاری متوسط و نشر رایحۀ معتدلی داره (که به نظر من همینقدر برای این رایحه کافیه)، و یه جور حس "دیگه از عطرای چرمی گرم توسکان لدر مانند خسته شدم" داره

Absolutely stunning leather fragrance.

Before Memo Irish Leather, I have never seen a leather that could combine green notes/juniper berries with leather in such a pleasantly surprising way.In fact I might never relate green with leather.

The first time I encountered this fragrance is when I was in New York, Bergdorf Goodman.And the advisor let me tried almost everything of Memo...but this one truly impressed me the most.Few seconds after sprayed out this herbal/earthy/grassy note instantly captured me.Then on my skin...several minutes after, it turned into a mixture of some kind of aromatic notes of traditional men's cologne with a very light and smooth leather smell, but still a little bit bitter.

Unfortunately, this fragrance has some obvious drawbacks: weak longevity;overly thin leather;in consequence, it's definately overpriced.No I won't spend 1280RMB on this.

This smells like an Irish bonfire and very earthy it's a very pleasant smell but it is so similar to a fragrance worn by someone I cannot stand so that is the deathbed for it. It's longevity is phenomenal and I can't help thinking of Earthy morning bonfires and spuds thrown n it. New season ones of course

ALSO i see some mentions of ISO E in previous reviews - i also suspected this, though i'm not totally sure. i think this also could be responsible for the weird difference in the scent enveloping me vs the scent directly on my wrist, and for my suspicion that this varies wildly depending on skin chemistry. something about some of the notes reeked of cheap bro cologne, and i strongly suspect this is a result of the iso e in combination with the pepper notes that are so common in awful mass-market dude colognes.

i wanted to like this so much and think it's interesting, but alas, it doesn't work for me.

i adored this in the bottle, but alas, terrible things happened on my skin.

the initial impression from the bottle is 'new car' for me, in the best possible way. but on my skin, this changed entirely. the new car/clean suede note lingered, but aggressively so. i HATED the smell surrounding me, while loving how it smelled close up on my wrist.

up close - when wearing this, i kept smelling my wrist as closely as possible to avoid the terrible sour, sweaty new-car stench surrounding me - the notes are delicate, delicious. pepper, juniper - very clear, very fresh, anchored against a much deeper and dirtier base. but for the love of god, whatever this goddamned suede note is a NIGHTMARE on my skin. i imagine it wears differently on others, but this particular chemical does not agree with my own sweat.

this is an interesting scent for sure, but i don't think worth the price for the full bottle, at least for me, which saddens me as i thought it was brilliant on paper.

sillage on me is enormous, but unfortunately only that one note i hated. longevity on me was at least 4 hours at full strength, some of the inky pepper notes still lingering several hours later.

Is anybody ever try or hear about the Limited Edition Irish Oud? Its a variation of Irish Leather with addition of Oud...

A "green" leather.

The leather note is very fine and is complex elaborated.

Irish Leather starts fresh and green. Almost instantly juniper joins the composition. The start smells orris root-like as well. Thus: the fragrance has - especially in the beginning - some bitterness in it. These notes overshadow leather composition for a while which becomes slightly more prominent over time.
Despite all this bitterness the leather note remains soft (and is becoming softer over time).

This elegant fragrance is suitable more for men than women imo.

Usually I will apply a fragrance and put it up to my partners nose and she will say the totally wrong description, like a dense creamy, oriental she'll say "mmmm...that's really fresh and fruity." Or something to that effect...basically the total opposite of what it is. (Who knows how her nose works she could be right and it's everyone else who's wrong.)
Anyhow...memo Irish leather was a big exception...as soon as she got a whiff "that's LEATHER!" She proclaimed and I proceeded to patronise her with an unexpected "wow it is...well done!"
I mean I can smell the leather (and I had prior knowledge of what the scent was called don't forget) but I was a bit surprised because for me it didn't smell completely typical or even that Tuscan Leather type approximation used in perfumery would have been more obvious for a noob to detect as 'leather' , I would imagine?
Anyway...
She went on to say that memo Irish leather smelled like a new car and I have to say I agree with her. It's a very accurate description because I would include the plastic and wood too. She never got the opening but it is indeed a sharp juniper which frankly I find jars with the leather. It takes a while to develop fully but when it does my my its an interesting one. Mate!!! Mate has shown up for a second time in a couple of days trying new fragrances and I'm still non the wiser what it smells like? Whatever is effecting the leather in here is not unpleasant but not to my liking.
My first from this house and I'll be honest I've smelled better fragrances than this one, performance was good but I desperately want to try it again before writing anything off.
Very very interesting...Gets marks for originally and that's half the battle these days.

it took me around 5 to 6 times of testing on different days to kind of accept this fragrance in the toughest way. i know it is hard for few reviewers (if not all) to figure out that it is truly a leather essence because they got used on other kind of leather like Tuscany Leather by Tom Ford, or Cuir Ottoman by Parfum d`Empire, or even Knize 10, or Cuir Maurisque by Serge Lutens, or Grand Cuir by Retro, or Mon Cuir by Ramon Monigal.
it is a cooling breeze sweet leather accord. Despite the extreme mixed up harsh top note that makes even leather lovers dislikes it at max, the dry down makes that Ambergris lightened grandly but still keeps the leather note behind it that you can hardly notice it. actually the juniper berries mixed up with Mate, & tonka beans brings up the cooling leather effect. it's not really a black dark leather, and i'll go for a white wild leather.

so give it more time or even spray it on your wrest or blotter and keep it infront of you on your desk for few other hours, loose it a bit and test it more times again.
i know it is quite expensive but this fragrance and the Italian leather are the best selling in Arab countries, so if you like the Arab style fragrances then here is one :)

عطر الجلود الإيرلندية من دار ميمو للنساء والرجال
Irish Leather Memo for women and men
لست أرى سببا لهذه التسمية التي لا علاقة لها بهذا البلد، إلا أن يكون صاحب الدار أو مصمم العطر يحمل في عقله أو قلبه شيئا خاصا لهذا البلد.
العطر ليس من العطور المعقدة.
ولكنه أيضا ليس نمطيا.
الجلود هنا ليست بقوتها وصراحتها في توسكان ليذر مثلا
أو مدخنة صارخة كما في انترلوود
فهي هنا محاطة بسياج من العشبية والخضرة
تتمثل في هذا النوع من الشاي الأخضر اللاتيني "المته"
وتظهر بوضوح في مقدمة العطر لمحات سكرية هادئة تنطلق من العرعر والعنبر.
اكاد اجزم ان المستخدم في هذا العطر من العرعر ليس التوت الذي تثمره شجيراته ولكن خضرته السروية الطابع.
لأنك في النهاية ستجد ما يشبه رائحة المستكة رغم انها ليست من مكونات العطر.
الجلود دائما تقبع في الخلفية.
بشكل قد ينسيك أن العطر جلدي التصنيف.
العنبر والتونكا ليسا لاعبين رئيسيين بالعطر
فالعطر عبارة عن مزيج من المكونات الثلاثة التي سبق ذكرها
الرائحة: جميلة خاصة في الافتتاحية، لها تفرد سببه هذه العشبية المنعشة
الثبات والفوحان: ليسا بالكبيرين
لو أعجبك هذا العطر فلن يعجبك بسبب وجود الجلود
ولكن بسبب عشبيته المنعشة المستكية الطابع
ولذا فأنا أنصح من جرب هذا العطر وأعجبه
ألا يقدم على شراءه حتى يجرب
عطر بارفام دو مبير الرائع Corsica Furiosa

I can agree that this is not the most interesting of perfumes and this is surely overpriced, but "Irish Leather" isn't bad. Not my cup of tea, but not bad at all.

The first hour is very pleasant - juniper, herbal notes and a sharp animalic leather, as it develops I'm left with a very simple composition of leather and musk (or is this ISO E?), nevertheless this smells like stable, like sweaty horse's skin - animalic, a bit alluring and a bit weird.

Clearly unisex as only the opening is a bit on the masculine side. I didn't find this as bad as others stated, but then again - I've never been an expert of leather fragrances (I dislike most, but I do enjoy this as this is not as strong as others I've tried). Could be a good purchase for subtle leather fans if you happen to find this on sale. Not full price worthy though - longevity was around 4-5 hours and as I said before the composition is a bit too simple.

Irish Leather opens with a bitter, minty green-citrus accord of lime, juniper berries, something peppery and something fruity on the base (bitter-fruity, like berries), and as for Italian Leather, a depressing, microscopic "leather" accord built on a mediocre smell of synthetic burnt rubber. Here (luckily, perhaps) this "leather" note is however oppressed by the head pepper-juniper-citral accord, which lasts for hours. If you're into leather scents, compare this to any - even the worst - vintage leather scent and laugh hard ("laugh for not cry"). Outrageous price tag.

if you like the smell of gin & iso e super, I recommend escentric 01 over this one. if you like the synthetics more complicated, I recommend comme des garcons 2 man..

I am not sure if the names matches this scent,I am almost convinced it doesn't. Opens with a strong iris note,could be the juniper berries and dries down to a vetiver-suede combination that just doesn't work miracles!Green,sharp,reminiscent of forests but not of horses or leather.It reminded me of Hiris by Hermes.Overall,disappointed because of my high expectations(again).More likely to suit a man,I find it too dry and harsh for a woman.Decent longevity and low sillage.

I don't usually review anything on the basis of one-day test, but as there are no reviews for this one, here are my two cents: Opens with a beautiful, albeit a short-lived forest accord; juniper berries and birch. At first, the drydown is leafy&vegetal which is presumably the mate note, reminiscent of the smell of the drink complemented by iris, sage, birch and leather. Leather is quite subdued for the first three hours, but more obvious after the mate & his veggie friends fade a bit. The latter part of the drydown is vegetal leather (very similar to Montale Aoud Leather).

Although this not my cup of tea (pun not intended), I found IL interesting and enjoyable, but not something I'd wear on a regular basis. Lovers of intense leather fragrances probably won't enjoy this, but if you like your leather with some greenness or are looking for a scent that reminds you of a walk in Nordic forest while sipping some mate, this is worth trying. Modest projection, got 6h of wear with one spray so impressive longevity!
