    Default The ULTIMATE Basenotes LEATHER thread

    Sergey (Moon_Fish) started a thread a few weeks ago on Vetiver and this got me thinking about starting similar threads for other notes.

    Please help me make an exhaustive list of fragrances with main notes of LEATHER.

    Discontinued, Rare, Hard-to-find, or even inexpensive or drugstore brands are welcome! If you have tried the scent yourself and can comment on it, please mark it with a star*

    Thanks!

    Oud Cuir D'Arabie *
    Bel Ami *
    Antaeus *
    Cuiron *
    Dzing! *

    For the ultimate leather scent, one need look no farther than Montale Oud Cuir D'Arabie. Setamp turned me on to this one, and it is fantastic. I also love the smokiness of Bel Ami and the herbal punch and unusual beeswax note in Antaeus. Cuiron has thus far left me cold. A little too sour and not enough leather.

    Dzing! is more like the hide of a living animal than leather. Love that Dzing!!

    My favorite is Royal English Leather by Creed.

    It is not overpowering but the Leather is definitley there.
    The mandarin takes the power of the leather down just enough...

    These threads are a great idea!

    It'd be nice to see them somehow incorporated into the "features" area of the BN board once they get finished. They might make a good resource for those just getting started with fragrances ... and a good way for us more seasoned members to more efficienty dispose of our savings! 8)

    From a recent thread, here are three more leather fragrances:

    Serge Lutens Cuir Mauresque*
    Santa Maria Novella Peau d'Espagne*
    Knize Ten*
    ..."net", not "naut".

    Serge Lutens Daim Blond - beautiful and very rich white "suede" scent.

    Spanish Leather (Truefitt & Hill)*--soft leather, slightly noticeable spice (black pepper-ish) citrus and wood, slightly soapy, not very sweet, slight barbershop note.

    Great threads (the ULTIMATE series)!

    I don't think anyone has yet mentioned Santa Maria Novella Nostalgia or Christian Dior Jules.

    To my nose, Nostalgia is all petroleum distillates and unwearable, while Jules is leather, leather, and more leather -- and I love it.

    Caswell-Massey Persian Leather also comes to mind, but I don't own it.

    My one ... true love ... only leather fragrance I'll wear.

    DK Unleaded.

    Although, I asked in another thread what might be similar to this and a few people said Daim Blond.

    So I might have to cheat on my true love ... :'( :'( :'(

    * Cuiron - supple suede
    * Bel Ami - spicy and peppery leather
    * Fahrenheit - I get a petrol burnt leathery note from this one, even though it is not normally considered part of the "leather family", that is what I get from it.
    * BPAL Sade - pure leather...where is my whip?!

    Leather is one of the notes I really don't care for in fragrance. That being said though, I really love Tsar.

    So where does "leather" scent come from? I mean, do they pulverize leather and then use a steam extraction process? I can't quite imagine that. Does anybody know?

    Thanks,

    Okay, so I overcame my laziness, went to Osmoz and searched on leather and came up with the following raw materials: Cananga (Canangium Odoratum Macrophylla), Styrax (Liquidambar Styraciflua), Atlas Cedar (Cedrus Atlantica), and Castoreum (Castor Fiber).

    Dunhill for Men (1934) has an underlying leather thread running through the entire scent. It isn't the animalistic type of leather as in Antaeus, Yatagan, or Aramis, but the fumey type of leather as in Bel Ami. The scent is overall kind of spicy, but not overpoweringly so, as Z-14 can be. The top notes are kind of zesty... a little bit reminiscent of Sung Homme. Initially I thought it was a more wearable Z-14 (an excellent, inexpensive spicy-leather scent), but now I find it to be more complex and well ahead of its time.

    Added bonus: I have heard that Ian Fleming in the 007 novels had Jamed Bond wearing Dunhill. [smiley=tekst-toppie.gif]
    In rotation: Greenbriar (new), Silver Mountain Water, Dunhill for Men (1934), Acqua di Parma Colonia, Habit Rouge EDC, Ho Hang, B*Men, Agua Brava
