    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.

    I'm still a big fan of Chanel Cuir de Russie, but no doubt you're already familiar with it, right?

    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.

    For years my favorite was Royal English Leather by Creed (perfectly unisex), but this year it was replaced by Cuir Mauresque by Salons Shiseido.

    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.

    Strangely I have never considered Habanita a leather. On me its all vanilla and powder.
    Nor Jicky which is all civet and woods on me.

    Cuir Mauresque
    Cuir de Lancome Herbal
    En Avion(Tabac Blond I have trouble with. En Avion I consider TB without the tanner's yard roughness)
    Baladin
    SNM Peau d'Espagne leather with a wonderful medical note.
    Jolie Madame
    Cuir de Russie
    Donna Karan Signature has suede with the lilies.

    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.

    oh yes, let's get fancy on leather. )

    just say the most expensive ones, it will do. it's a plus if they're reformulated/discontinued or very niche. yay!

    Azuree--not only do I like it for itself but it reminds me of my mom, who loved Estee Lauder fragrances.

    Vintage: Tabac Blond (swoon!) A kind fellow blogger sent me a generous decant. One of my treasures.
    Modern: Cuir de Lancome. As soft as a glove.
