Thank you, ECaruthers
, for the fragrance recommendation.
I will have to sample this at some point. At which store did you find this? I know On The Fly in San Francisco would sure carry this. (I also think they have a Honolulu store.)
I think that leather is not a really popular note, even in mainstrem perfumery. I would think that this is even less so in the candle market, where almost all--if not all--of the scents are floral or foody. Even the "clean linen" scents are slighly floral and based on laundry detergent. (Who wants to smell detergent?)
As it is near Christmas, all one sees pushed are foody scents: pumpkin and spice, a variety of berries of this and that, pomegranate, mulled apple cider, vanilla this and that...
I do like the pine notes in some candles.
I would imagine that a leather candle or diffiser would not be a big seller, so they only put it in a car fragrance...
