    My father's leather pouch where he kept his pipes and tobacco.

    I like EN much more, because it is such a raw, almost brutal scent.

    T42 might be more complex - sweeter / more vanilla, a bit of smoke.

    I love Cuir Pleine Fleur.

    Smooth and vigorous at the same time. The finest leather, rather formal, very elegant. Really and truly brilliant.

    I like both Labdanum and Wenge very much, but I find the price way too high for scents that need other scents to be completed.
