In mine, they just happen to be vanilla.
P.S: I'm going to get pure malt BUT what should I get with it: Chanel Edition Blanche or Gucci PH II?
I envy you. I am rarely ever able to detect any leather in fragrances. For some reason, any time a leather note is known to be present (based on reading, here and elsewhere), I can smell the overall impression, but if immediately disintegrates into its constituent parts, which I smell separately instead. For example, that happens to me with Drakkar Noir.
I'm beginning to think that my favorite note is apple. Green, crab, red, it doesn't matter all that much. Lots of frags have apple, and any time I smell it, I'm impressed. I know that's a common note and not that spectacular, but it is what it is!
