FERRAGAMO Bright Leather Review: Salvatore Ferragamo FERRAGAMO Bright Leather Eau de Toilette

Aromatic and bright, Salvatore Ferragamo’s new-for-2022 fragrance, FERRAGAMO Bright Leather Eau de Toilette, is a fresh and modern spin on classic male fragrances centered around a leathery note.

Bright Leather really is the perfect name for this scent; its soft and sensuous leather tone is enhanced by lively citrus fruits and a stunning hint of grapefruit. I love how unusual Bright Leather is with its fresh and earthy mixture; for me, it’s the perfect cool weather or evening scent. It’s also the first time I have fallen for a leather-based woody scent – read on to find out why…


This Fragrance Smells Like…

The top notes are intensely fruity with bergamot, mandarin and grapefruit creating a refreshing citrus zing. The heart of soft leather is sensuous and rich, given a green aromatic feel thanks to basil and rosemary, which leave a striking bittersweet tinge. The earthy feel is intensified by a base of cedarwood, patchouli and musk, which creates a woody warm finish that makes the leather stand out as being cool and bright.


What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

Inspired by a combination of nature and a changing society, Bright Leather represents the confident contemporary man who boldly owns his individuality.


You Will Love This If…

The bittersweet green herbal scent is incredibly alluring and it’s the perfect choice for someone who finds traditional leather too intense. If you love sophisticated earthy leather and patchouli but you want a lighter version of these notes, the luminous FERRAGAMO Bright Leather is for you.


This Perfume Smells Similar To:

There is a similarity to the original Salvatore Ferragamo FERRAGAMO Eau de Toilette but Bright Leather has a cleaner, cool opening and the leather is a lot lighter.


Is FERRAGAMO Bright Leather Unisex?

Though there is a traditionally masculine look and feel to Bright Leather, the scent has a universal appeal as the typically masculine notes are energised by citrus and green tones. It’s not marketed as a unisex scent but women at Escentual have loved the way it contrasts crisp clean notes with the warm woody tones.


What’s The Longevity Like?

For an Eau de Toilette, the lasting power is good; it lingers on the skin for around five hours. Bright Leather can be worn in a subtle way with one or two sprays; or add a few more spritzes to your clothes and skin to ensure the projection and intensity grows.


What’s Special About The Bottle?

Bright Leather is held in a sleek glass bottle with grey and silver tones.



The outer design is recyclable.
