    Dzing! is one of those weird fragrances that morphs depending on how you perceive it - I can wear it one day and smell what people describe as a 'wet paper' accord, and other days it smells like a smoky leather. Truly a unique fragrance, and definitely a 'love it or really hate it'.

    are you being blinded by the snob bug called "collecting rare scents disorder" ?
    well if there is any note i AM able to identify, it is most certainly leather. In fact, i am actively searching out the widest variety of leather scents at this time.

    I have tried Dzing at least 4 or 5 times on different occasions, on skin..on paper, and on clothing.....and there is only a minimal (at best!) leather scent in it.....i really don't smell it....if there is one, it is concocted by the idea of people telling me there is leather (imaginary leather)...it is not a leather scent IMO. There are FAR better places to find leather than Dzing, that i am certain of. People's noses do react differently of course---and this may be one of those cases. However if i remember correctly, there are plenty of people who do not detect leather in Dzing.

    Knize Ten, of course, rare or not....my favourite or not...is unabashedly one of THE finest leather scents ever made....that i am surely certain of in my point of view

    I agree with a lot of what's been mentioned--especially Knize Ten, Cuir Ottoman, and Yatagan, all of which are must-try frags, IMO (though the last not so much for the leather).

    I'd add three others that I'm surprised nobody's mentioned: Bandit, Lonestar Memories, and Geo F Trumper's Spanish Leather.

    Anyone every try Elsha's 1776? I've always wanted to try it...and it's dirt cheap!
