Customer Reviews

Based on 8 reviews

A fun fragrance. It’s bit challenging and wouldn’t appeal to a designer crowd. I’m at the point now I appreciate the creativity. Great longevity.




This is certainly NOT a scent for the weak-willed! Right from the first spray, it's a POWERFUL spiciness that I was even a little offended by as it was strong even two feet away from my face. Thankfully, that dies down in a minute or two, but it is still quite potent. I am not entirely sure where such spice comes from given these notes. The leather, birch tar, and labdanum notes are very pleasant, but I'm not too sure I caught much of the other notes. That genuinely might be a "me" problem. Overall, unique with a strong impression. Spicy and smoky. Like the other review said, LOUD and attention-grabbing! Definitely not something you wear to the office or any other professional situation. This is a fragrance for the goth clubs, industrial shows, and leather night at the gay bar.

Dark, bold and endlessly exciting

Although Black Leather Jesus is certainly the most masculine scent I own, it's a clean break from a great number of leather note centric scents I've previously encountered, which often seem to aspire to the sophistication of a jet setting urbanite ideal, whilst tragically leaving the sex behind. Enter Black Leather Jesus, whose cutting labdanum and rose oxide add an unmistakeable metallic edge that lifts the leather out of the glossy GQ cover and into the seedy backpages where it belongs. That said, there is also more than enough of a comforting warmth to the spicy notes that I'm just as happy to wear it at home than at the club. It makes a loud and proud statement that whilst not EVERYONE may want to wear it, they'll certainly be delighted to smell it on you.

Indie at its Best

Labdanum and leather are the stars of the show here. Thick, sweet, sticky, smoky, sweet. Definitely not understated or subtle, wears like vintage Christian Dior Poison. LOUD!
