Fragrantica: "A beautiful leather based fragrance. I love how the suede leather combines with this beautiful berry accord."
Fragrantica: "Everyone's saying sample this on your own skin, and I COMPLETELY agree! It can play out very differently based on skin chemistry and surrounding scents. It's fresh, but not sporty. It's leathery, but not too cloying for summer use, and yet it still has that loud, animalic, and somewhat vulgar leather, with an extremely confident and outgoing personality overall, that I feel matches my own."
Fragrantica: "Oud Saphir is an excellent sweet suede fragrance with a touch of smoke"
