AB Cashmere (by Jean Jacques) features a cool, sophisticated incense (far away from any idea of church) in which jasmine and osmanthus are immersed. The accord starts fresh and delicately flowery like a breeze ruffling the mirror surface of a lake, and then develops a fruity undertone (osmanthus) and a slightly animal/leather one (indole, present in both), making it a more complex and interesting scent than it seems at first sniff.
NO Suede is the most outspoken of the line: saffron, leather and incense are a trio which seduces immediately. The suede comes off clear, with a soft, comfortable feeling reminiscent of an Harley rider's jacket (the rider's dedicated to fine perfumery, of course!). A velvety, liqueur-y scent, slightly gourmand, which smells expensive (saffron) and suggests Harley rides to distant lands.
