The other reviewers are right. This is a leather frag in the Tabac Blond trad. Although at times the leather smells a bit like rubber, it's very much leather and tobacco and birch tar. I bought it. But by the time I got home, the scent had completely faded from my skin--and I had sprayed a pretty liberal dose on my arm and wrist. When I read that other reviewers noted its short life …Read more

Gomma is beautiful. It starts as a leather, a fairly wet, musky leather with a slight tint of dirty hair. The dirty hair blessedly fades, and it begins to warm into a more herbal leather -- I'm reminded a bit of Jolie Madame. After about half an hour to an hour, the herbal leather, which is not unlike vetiver, begins to transform and you end with a spicy leather, quite lovely. This …Read more

To be candid, Gomma turned out much better than expected. The last Etro I tried was the singularly frightening Anice and moreover, the name "Gomma" sounded a bit like something like a creature from outerspace so I was unsure what my little vial might hold.


I am pleased to report that while Gomma is a bit odd, it is not unpleasant. In fact, I found the spiciness in its …

Mmmmmm. Oiled English tack compared to the Russian boot lick of Cuir de Russie. Polite and charming, not half as sharp as the Cuir. Definately nice for all-over spritzing.

Your new SO is an extremely serious PETA member. Not just anti-meat and fur, but also no leather. Period. Your leather coats, bags, belts, shoes...all solemnly have been turned over to Goodwill for the sake of love. But your leather fragrances??? Stash them in the back of the closet. Love can be fleeting. However, in the meantime Gomma should be an acceptable subsitute. It's not a …Read more

All day I've been testing Cuir de Russie, which I can not make up my mind about. Does it make me smell like fatty piece of discarded whale meat? Sort of. It's fatty and not very "pretty" if you catch my drift.

THIS however, is sexy and warm and way more girly. I am not sure why others say masculine. Tho perhaps it is the contrast with the aforementioned Cuir …

STRIKINGLY similar to Caron's Tabac Blond, almost to the point I thought I had a mislabeled vial. Leather comes out en force after a few minutes, and the jasmine never really breaks through on my skin. A kinky, strong scent, but weirdly, it disippated on my skin within a couple of hours. I respect Tabac Blond, but am not a fan of Cuir de Russie, so somehow, this falls right in-between.
