Colourlock Leather Essence 30 ml Set
There’s nothing like the smell of new leather but, after a while it loses its distinctive scent. For our customers who want to recapture that new leather smell, we have developed a leather scent in cooperation with a perfume specialist: The COLOURLOCK Leather Essence.
Amount: 30 ml
COLOURLOCK Leather Essence Set
Modern tanning methods mean that leather doesn’t smell for as long as it used to. Previously, vegetable tanning was the main method. This, together with the use of moisturizing agents was what gave the leather a special aroma. Some of the old compounds, such as nitro-musk which influenced the scent, are now banned. Today most car, furniture and garment leather is chrome-tanned. The result is more or less odour-neutral as the leather’s own scent is relatively weak.
Sometimes, new bag, belt or jacket leather can have an unpleasant smell where low-quality fish oil or other odourous substances have been used to treat it during manufacture. This tends to occur in low-end products, which are best avoided if possible.
Some leathers will give off a bad odour if they have been stored in a damp place and been attacked by mould and mildew.

Always test any products first on a hidden area in case they affect the colour.
Apply the essence with a sponge, either on the small leather pad included with the set or directly onto the leather. The Essence can also be mixed into the COLOURLOCK Leather Protector. If using the included pad, place it in an invisible area. The intensity of the scent depends on the amount used, air circulation and temperature. The warmer the environment, the stronger the scent.
