We get asked this all the time. Our alternative leather doesn’t have a smell—yet. But what an intriguing question!
The smell of leather might remind you of your first baseball glove, a vintage jacket or a classic car. Unlike other materials, leather has a distinctive scent. Our brains connect that scent with powerful memories that spark emotions.
Thrillingly, the answer is anything we want. For this initial project, we worked with Lola James Harper, a like-minded brand that makes planet-friendly vegan candles in France. The Banbū Leather Candle has notes of cardamom, carrot, incense and iris. More importantly, it uses the power of fragrance to inspire ideas for a bright future.
A limited-edition release with unlimited potential.
Soon we might be supplying alternative leather to a major automotive partner or fashion brand—and infusing it with a remarkable scent so bespoke it doesn’t even exist yet. It’s ok to still love that classic-leather scent. Just make room for a new version that evokes a new vision in harmony with nature. The Banbū Leather Candle. A limited-edition release with unlimited potential.
