    Default Fragrance to wear with a leather Jacket?

    Okay it has to be strong as Leather tends to dillute the smell and presence of the fragrance so which is the best fragrance to have on when wearing a leather jacket?

    Kouros, M7 or even Ungaro III

    Montale Black Aoud works very well with a leather blazer. I suspect there are very things in this world that can dilute the smell and presence of Black Aoud.

    For a motorcycle jacket, my favorites are CdG Garage and Le Labo Patchouli 24.

    I will second the Ungaro III. It has a wonderful dark smell to it that would go perfect with good leather, and it's plenty powerful without being overpowering. Plus it's a quality fragrance that smells much more expensive than it is.

    Why veil the smell of the leather when you can enhance it?

    I'd experiment a little with scents that have a leather note, but something extra as well.

    "Minotaure" by Paloma Picasso has some great bitter orange, herbaceous notes with a fine leather base. Give that a spritz and see if you like where its going whilst wearing your leathers.

    For me there is no better fragrance to wear with a leather jacket than that of a combination of Dior Homme and Bvlgari Black layered.

    I second Black Aoud and would also add Armani and Quorum. These ones seem like they were meant to be worn with a leather jacket.

    I like the idea of enhancing the natural leather scent. Cuir Mauresque by Serge Lutens would do that well.

    I second the Dior Homme, and will add another that people will be surprised to hear from me, considering my fragrance-snobbiness!...

    Tommy Hilfiger True Star! I know, I know, hold your fire! This scent is actually really good! It has a very prominent leather accord to it that isn't even listed in the notes. I can't figure out why, as all I smell is leather and citrus.

    So ignore Enrique Inglesias, Tommy Hilfiger, and the stupid microphone-shaped bottle. Pour it out into a new one so you can appreciate it if you must! This scent is actually worth checking out.
    Lately I've been wearing:
    Windsor, Bois de Santal, Original Santal, Elixir, Douro, Endymion, Reflection, Arcus, Marwah

    I totally stand beside M7. As a woman, I can't think of anything more leather-jacket coolness than this one. It's the good guy, the bad guy and the holy Harley Davidson motor all in one place.

    M7 fresh is very good stuff as well.

    Gucci pour Homme is does the magic for me too.
    Also Habanita is a very leathery catch

    I personally wear Cabochard with my leather jacket :-) Sometimes Diva (Ungaro), but this particular jacket I bought for Cabochard

    Cuiron is a good bet. Daring and suprisingly appropois is the gender bending Paco Rabanne La Nuit.

    I agree with the musk. How about something really animalistic like Muscs Kublai Khan? That seems made for the bad boy look. Plus it's pure sex appeal anyway. When my husband wears that I can't keep away from him...next time I'll have to get him to put on his leather jacket....grrrrrr baby! I'd think I wouldn't want to cover up the natural leather smell with a fragrance that also smells like leather-I'd want to to enhance it and work with it and have the frag stand out on it's own without being a copycat. That's why a musk seems right to go with leather. Anyone else agree?

    I'd definitely agree with the M7 recommendation.

    If it's a black leather jacket, Narciso Rodriguez for him would go with the look amazingly, I think.
