Hay, leather, and woods with topnotes of apple and grass


Clear selection

Scent Description

With top notes of apple and grass, heart notes of leather, hay, and violet, and base notes of sandalwood, cedar, moss, and light amber, Equestrian is an outdoorsy yet civilized take on a hay and leather theme. Filtered sunlight streams through the barn’s hay room, well-oiled saddles and bridles hang in the tackroom, horses graze on crisp grass in the pasture, and riders arrive with apple treats in their pockets for their four-legged friends. Equestrian has a cozy drydown with good lasting power and soft sillage.

Perfumer's Secrets

The scents of hay, grass, and leather have very good associations for me because I spent most afternoons of my youth at a nearby barn, riding and also working at the barn to help earn my horse’s keep. I have always thought that it would be fun to build a scent around an equestrian theme, using hay absolute as a major player. When a sample of a lovely new leather accord arrived in my hands late in 2015, I knew it was time to work on this idea.

10 reviews for Equestrian

  1. Ida

    Laurie Erickson demonstrates so poignantly what it’s like to mingle with horses and well-oiled tack, harnesses and saddles: sun-dappled hay, the aroma of apples/the cider house, the sensitive shivering of your steed beneath your fingertips. It’s so evocative, faithful and easy to wear. A real pleasure.

  2. Victoria

    Sonoma Scent Studio Equestrian is rich, golden, slightly boozy, and has quickly become my favorite apple scent.

  3. Julie

    This one is a real dream. If you have an affinity for leather, please do yourself a favor and sample this beauty.

  4. Undina

    That apple accord and benzoin give perfume just enough sweetness to put Equestrian on the border of gourmand territory – or maybe even slightly into it but not overwhelmingly so. The leather is smooth and subtle. And the rest of ingredients together paint a harmonious picture.

  5. Ida

    Nature lovers everywhere appreciate the veracity it evokes: sun-dappled fields of hay, a wealth of coumarinic goodness and so complex; the apple accord resembles a French natural apple melange redolent of the ciderhouse. Leather is inferred and suave, elegant as a well-oiled bridle. The fullness of jasmine sambac and violet play well off of drier woods and grassy tones – along with the loamy whisper of patchouli which rounds out our painting of this pastoral scene. Its longevity will surprise you: long after you’ve forgotten its presence, it will re-emerge throughout the day. It smells just right, every time you anoint yourself.
