During a trip to Italy, perfumer Danielle Fleming spent an evening walking the wet cobblestone streets of Florence. Her experience that night burned an olfactory memory in her brain, and she spent nearly a year working to create a perfume that captures the scent of the tobacco, spices, coffee, and rain in the air, all draped over the supple scent of Florence's famous leather markets. The resulting perfume is refined and elegant, and it paints such a vivid picture that we feel as though we could have been there with her. (Delicious tidbit: Midnight Leather was included in the official 2014 Primetime Emmy Gift Bags, so you might find a celeb or two as obsessed with it as we are.) Notes include blood orange, coriander, juniper, gunflint, leather accord, tobacco, patchouli, coffee, and vetiver.
Danielle Fleming is the founder, creative mind, and nose behind Note Fragrances. For more than 10 years, she has been studying the relationship between mind and scent and crafting scented products. She learned her craft by studying the method of olfactive training and creation of Jean Carles, a French perfumer and founder of the Roure Perfumery School, now owned by Givaudan. She also studied Herbal Techniques at il Laboratorio dell’ Erborista, in Pitigliano, Italy and has completed certification in The Technique and Language of Perfumery from Cinquieme Sens, perfumery training school for fragrance professionals in New York City. Danielle previously worked at Firmenich, the world's largest privately held fragrance house, as a senior consumer insights analyst.
Midnight Leather was inspired by a nighttime walk down the wet cobblestone streets of Florence, Italy.
