The materials used in the manufacture of consumer products become the media by which the interface between the consumer and the designed product is perceived. The consumer perception of these products is strongly influenced by their sensory interaction with the materials through the different sense perception. Hence the selection of a material in the design for a manufactured product is influenced greatly by the user’s perception of the material based on sensory properties such as color, texture, smell…. This paper will present a ? sensorial profile ? as a technique for designers based on sensorial properties of leather product. This tool can be used to characterize the consumer preferences, the material selection by designer. In this study after developing some descriptors affecting leather sensory perception, we have proposed a method representing those lexicons to compare different leather’s samples and finally, we have used those diagrams to compare some leather finishing.
