The base notes of Sandalwood and Patchouli lend depth and warmth to create a unique, irreplaceable fragrance. Lastly, the third variant comprises top notes of Bergamot and Mint that hit your senses with a delightful freshness, while the middle notes of Sage add an aromatic intensity in their wake.

Salvatore Ferragamo has introduced Ferragamo Intense Leather Eau de Parfum for men — a statement blend that turns the spotlight on an inspired, grounded, and passionate protagonist of the now, who acts according to his own rules and feelings coming to voice his inner strength with no fears and no regrets. Created in collaboration with senior perfumer Antoine Maisondieu (Givaudan), Ferragamo Intense Leather is a Leathery Aromatic Salty Creation with a deep contemporary twist, playing with contrasting notes of radiance and seduction. The fresh soul of Mandarin intertwines with vivid Pink Peppercorn as the herbaceous magnetism of Clary Sage Absolute captures the senses. A pure feeling of intimate authenticity emerges from a rare heart fusing juicy accents of Annurca Apple Accord with the floral elegance of Lily of the Valley and Orris. Then, bright Musk and the mineral salty facet of Oakmoss spread even more distinction, before relinquishing the scene to the Ferragamo Intense Leather Exclusive accord, which has also been featured in the Ferragamo blend as a unique signifier of the House’s balance between artisanal flair and charismatic appeal.
