    Default What smells like English Leather?

    ???

    I've been testing leather scents, and most are too sweet. As simple as it is, English Leather as been very compelling to me the last several weeks. It lasts OK too. I wonder if there's a high quality fragrance that smells like it. I re-read the previous leather thread in the Basenotes archives and have never seen many of the ones mentioned. But if there's one that smells like English Leather I'm willing to buy it blind. Here are some of the others I've hunted down these last 2 weeks in NYC:

    Cuiron - very hard to find, and when I found it, too synthetic.
    SMN Notalgia - it's my favorite SMN, but my wife doesn't like the tire note. I like it, smells like an auto shop.
    Antaeus - OK, a bit fruity
    Trumper's Spanish Leather - maybe my favorite scent
    Creed Royal English Leather - too sweet

    Thanks!

    I have just recently tried D&G ph and it reminds me of English Leather, though I haven't figured out why.

    nothing else smells like E.L.
    This is my Dads all time favorite cologne and while it always smells great on him,I find that it smells like boar pee on others.
    Im not to crazy about the way it smells on me either.
    Somehow it reminds me of a leathery version of Kanon cologne.

    I agree with smellitnow, Kanon would be a great alternative to English Leather, both are similar.

    I've been wearing SL's Cuir Mauresque from a sample this week, and it was pretty good, but a little sweet on me. I'm dying to try Creed's Cuir de Russie, so if anyone wants to trade for a sample, let me know!
