I received a bottle of GFT Spanish Leather cologne as a gift from a relative just back from a trip to London. The scent seemed pretty strong from the bottle. But I tried it today for the first time....and love it! With only 2 sprays in the morning, I can still detect a slight scent 5 hours later. Spicy, but not overpowering. Really a cool scent that I've never used before. I don't typically use cologne but I can see using this one often.

I would highly recommend it. Tongue Anyone else a fan??

I love it! I went ahead and grabbed the Spanish Leather Shave Cream when it came out as well.

I need to pony up and get the AS to complete the trifecta.

So the cream and the cologne are the same scent? I'm getting to be quite a fan of the cream, I should put the AS and cologne on my future list.

Not exactly the same as the cream itself has a 'shave cream' scent that comes through a little. The shave cream is a more slightly muted version of the cologne ... though to me it is instantly recognizable as SL.

I like the scent in the aftershave, which sticks around more than long enough to not need the cologne; unless you want to stink them out...

Love the AS! I actually think the shave cream is very close to the AS in scent and layering them both does make for a nice combo. Long lasting and classic! It's what Old Spice used to smell like, IMO. Maybe better.

Gentlemen,
Trumper's Spanish Leather cologne, aftershave and shave cream are kisses from heaven blown by a chorus of angels.

Wow, with such a review it would be a sin if I didn't get some...

Ben, my friend, you must experience Trumper's Spanish Leather. It's a warm, clean and refreshing scent that conjures up a visit to an old British parlor filled with memories.

I can't say I've had a visit to a British parlour, this may be my chance!

I'm a little limited with my ability to obtain A/S and cologne due to US shipping restrictions on products containing alcohol. I'll have a look at the online UK and European vendors though...

With lines like that, Obie should start writing the marketing and advertising material for GFT!

I would love to write their ads. Well, I especially fancy Spanish Leather. Although, I might add, I haven't found a Trumper product I did not like. Good stuff. Well deserving of the praise.
Stay well,
Obie
