    Default Favorite leather scent?

    I think Cuir Mauresque has to be my favorite but I was wondering if there were others I should be exploring.

    My favourites leathery/tobacco scents are Miller Harris' Feuillies de Tabac (Caron), Tabac Blond (Caron), Dzing! (l'Artisan) and Femme (Rochas). Cuir de Russie (Chanel) is a good one too, though not my favourite.

    Aside from the one's already mentioned, I like the original Prada, Montale's Oud Cuir d'Arabie (both rather manly though), Parfum de Therese, and Cuir Beluga (which is more amber than leather, but oh well).

    My to try list includes Montale Black Oud, Ungaro III and Aigner in Leather woman. I tend to prefer more masculine leather scents, though I do wear Bandit sometimes, not that it is girly.

    Also, can anyone tell me anything about Piver's Cuir de Russie? Also, is the Chanel parfum worth all the money or is the EDT good enough at $85?

    Luciano Soprani by Soprani original for women - like the original Cabochard, made insanely sophisticated.
    Leonard by Leonard - smells just like Parure.
    Baladin by PdN - I love this buttery, soft leather note, and it has it spades.
    Capucci Original Pour Homme - the best, most elegant eighites aromatic men's leather. Period.
    Silver Cologne by Amouage - An impeccable modern cologne with more of that buttery soft leather.
    Scent 79 Women by Jil Sander - Suede and pepper chypre. Sexy.
    Woman III by Jil Sander - A cult favorite for a reason. Unforgettable, herbal 'white' leather for everyone.
    Cuiron by Helmut Lang- For men and women, a tour de force in leather amazingness. WOW.
    Parure - The driest, rosiest, darkest leather chypre ever. Tons of character.

    See if you can find vintage Azuree. It's the sunny, cheeky American Bandit. The leather is sexier and more prominent than the current formula, which (perhaps because the top notes died over time?) highlights the citrus top notes more.

    Great thread- Thanks for resurrecting -definately have to try more leather's

    Guerlain's Cuir Beluga is defnately on my wishlist, though it's pretty soft for something with "Cuir" in the name

    On Habanita, I get more vanilla/ powder in the modern formulation, and in my vintage bottle definately more tobacco and leather.

    I'm a noob to the world of fine fragrance, so I haven't experienced many that I know of. That said, I like Kelly Caleche because it reminds me of my mother's travel cosmetics case, and transports me back to being a little girl, riding the passenger trains.

    You know, when people mention the leather in fragrances like No 19 and Habit Rouge I just don't get it. I get no leather or suede or anything similar in there, maybe I'm simply missing something...

    Could be a couple of things, Tott. One option is that you may be anosmic to the leather ingredient--I have seen others mention before that some so-called leather scents do not smell leathery at all. Also, not all bottles of No.19 smell of leather. So far, the most leathery ones I've tried are modern parfum, modern EDP and vintage EDC. The modern EDT is really more of a green fragrance with barely any leather, and the vintage parfum has a mossy character.

    What I'm wearing today... Michael Storer's Monk... has a lovely leather note in the drydown... so it's right up there. It has so many other notes in its development that it's like wearing three or four different scents over the day... and the leather came to the fore about 7 hours in (it's there earlier but in harmony with other notes).
