I absolutely loved the original Tom Ford Ombre Leather EDP, so I was a little nervous to try the new parfum version. Why mess with something that is already so great!?
That said, I’m glad they did! Tom Ford Ombre Leather Parfum is very much an ode to the original – a variation on a theme. It’s much earthier and more grounded, with the woodsy notes of the original really taking centre stage.
While I found the original lively, warm and slightly powdery; this new release feels a little more sure of itself. It’s less energetic and has a sophisticated calm to it.
If you liked the original, I think you’ll enjoy this. It’s a more grown-up, evening version of its little brother. For me, it’s a great release but my heart still belongs to the original.

What They Say
Building on the untethered, tactile sensuality of the original scent, Ombre Leather Parfum intensifies the distinctly rich, luxurious leather signature with surprising new additions.
Violet leaf absolute orpur breathes a powerful, intensely green air, giving way to the elegant, woody sensuality of cedarwood. Harvested before the monsoon season to produce an elevated extract, jasmine sambac absolute India orpur offers an intense, fruity floral facet recalling honeysuckle.
Deep leathery and woody notes laced with green tobacco undercut the floralcy, stoking a creamy sensuality while a double concentration of orris heart pulses beneath, releasing a captivating, addictive pull.
