The perfumer's re-creation of the nostalgic scent of a leather workshop. While the scents of rubber, leather and shoe polish may be off-putting to some who aren't used to it, they hold a very special place in his olfactive memory. Lumberman begins chilly, with an herbal and slightly camphorous effect before moving into a fantastic accord of polished black leather. Frankincense and woods bring an ambered warmth and brightness to the heart, holding well into the drydown, like a warm fire in a chilly winter workshop. It's a dark, raw, gritty fragrance, but it manages to feel sublimely smooth. Some will surely consider Lumberman as supremely masculine, however it is one of Elizabeth's favorite and most-worn from the brand.
