    Default what if you could only have 1 leather juice?

    Calling for all the leather fans here around...
    I'm aware that leather scents have been extensively discussed so far here, but please, let's do it once more, at least with a twist this time:
    What would you chose if you could only own one leather scent in your wardrobe?
    Btw, I'm doing this game because it's too much I don't own a great leather scent (and many new ones have been launched in between) and I want to spoil myself for xmas with a great leather scent.

    Knize 10, and not because Everso said so

    To me, it's in the same class as Vintage Tabarome. They both speak of a cultured and urbane gentleman, of a person confident of his place in the world.

    My wife has a bottle of this fragrance, and it out shines any leather I have ever worn hands down. Every once,and a while I will steal a few sprays, and thats Cuir de Russie, by Chanel.
    Don't panic. Just stay calm, and reload....

    KNIZE TEN! i agree with you guys...obviously!

    there is no other scent in the world, i believe, which defines leather like Knize Ten does.....and lasts like it, or has the history of it. I think every BNer should own this fragrance or should have at least tried it.

    2nd place: Cuiron

    Kolnisch Juchten.

    I prefer the fragrance made by Parfums Regence but the Farina Gegenuber version is a very close second.

    SMN Peau d'Espagne is a difficult beast and heavy. And yet - it's so good that I would only exchange it for vintage Cuir de Russie (1975 or earlier) or extrait Tabac Blond (2005 or earlier) .

    I'd have to choose between Royal English Leather and Knize Ten and would, for purely personal reasons, select the Creed. It's as feelgood leather that never lets me down. But to make it more interesting, I'll throw Morabito's Or Black in the ring here. As much leather darkness as you'll ever want without the ridiculous prices some niches charge.

    I have REL - to everso's dismay - but I'd rank it near the bottom of my leather fragrances. Although no one asked, this is how'd I rank the one's I own at least a large decant of

    Cuir d'Iris
    Cuir de Lancome/Vintage Chanel Cuir de Russie (tie)
    Knize Ten
    Prada No.3 Cuir Ambre
    Cuir Ottoman
    Cuir Beluga
    Derby
    REL
    Heeley Fine Leather
    Etat Libre d'Orange Vierges & Toreros
    Pierre Cardin Cuir Ambre
    SL Cuir Mauresque
    Bel Ami
    Miller Harris Cuir d'Oranger (got rid of decant - terrible)

    I'm not counting Dior Homme in the list because leather is a secondary accord.

    Heavy and difficult aren't the words that come to my mind for Peau d'Espagne. Or for any Spanish Leather for that matter. I found it to be a pretty safe leather thats a bit reminiscent of barbershop smell.

    I think everso owes it to himself as the self-proclamied "leather whore" to try every leather he can get his hands on. That means Royal English Leather everso!

    Hard question, but I've been very happy with the REL I've got and it's the first one that came to mind. I'll say I'd take it for my one leather scent.

    Are you sure we're not related?

    Those are exactly my feelings.

    You really do, considering what a fan of leather you are. SMN's Peau D'Espagne a really rough, spicy, animalic leather - totally different from other leathers on the market and SMN's other classic leather, Nostalgia. I can't wear it - it goes soapy on me - but it smells great on others.

    I was looking at my list and can't believe I forgot Cuiron - (tied w/Knize in my book) - and I'm surprised it's name hasn't popped up more. I have a theory about Cuiron, which I will reveal publicly for the first time now. As good as Cuiron is, and it's good, it could have been better. There's something about it that's lacking - there's nothing wrong - just lacking. Maybe it's just because it's an EdC... I would have loved to try it as an EdP or even a parfum (the way Helmut Lang was released). Because it's such the cult favorite people overlook this. Anyway, just my .02. I'll never let go of my Cuiron hoard. Ever.

    With all the hoopla I went ahead and ordered myself a bottle of Knize yesterday, and I believe I may have purchased a vintage bottle as it is a 100ml bottle (it hasn't been produced in that size in a long time). I'm looking forward to receiving it to find out.

    I just skimmed... but why hasn't anyone mentioned Tom Ford's Tuscan Leather yet?!

    I do find it to be the most realistic leather I've ever smelled. All this yadda yadda about the Knize Ten - Like Totally What-Ev!

    I still haven't really even "found" the leather in K10! Just yesterday, I wore a bit of REL and realized what it was trying to tell me. (I liken these two to each other) But I don't really find "that smell" to be what I'm looking for when I'd be reaching for a "leather scent". I want the leather jacket. The brand new driving gloves. The wallet. THAT leather. I suppose I'm not rich, so I don't know what the interior of a Rolls Royce (or Bentley or whatever the hell it is) smells like. So I guess if there exists a leather that smells like REL or K10 (or Cuir Mauresque or Tabac Blonde...) I have yet to smell it. Not that I don't own and love REL for it's own merits, and do very much appreciate K10... but give me the liquid leather jacket. (give me Tuscan Leather!)

    Tuscan Leather is a great scent, IMO....i really enjoy wearing it...and i think it's very rock and roll. the only problem i have with it, is that the beginning has this glorious soft leather scent which is fantastic....and then the drydown smells like drugs...chemicals...cocaine....and just dusty filthy rock and roll. not a bad thing at all, but not really a very leathery drydown.

    still...a great scent, with MONSTER longetivity.

    I think my favorite leather is not so much a leather--Parfum d'Empire Ambre Russe.

    As far as leather-centric scents go, I love Miller Harris Cuir d'Oranger and Chanel Cuir de Russie. I am also fascinated by Dzing!. I haven't tried Knize 10, so I can't comment on that one. Most of the other ones mentioned here, the ones I have tried are fine, but never seem to do it for me. I haven't found a leather HG, so to speak.

    ...
    good scent, although like you say....don't get much leather out of it, get more of an amber spiciness......i find this to be a more wearable, better made scent than Ambre Sultan.....which is much harsher and heavier.

    Oh I get quite a bit of leather, but it is not leather centric. I agree Amber is the main attraction.

    I havn't tried Knize Ten or Cuir de Russie but I have a feeling I would regard them as high quality leather-scents. In the meantime my vote goes to L'Artisian's Dzing!, and as a matter of fact I'm wearing it right now. Lovely, polished and "alive" leather!

    I'd say Dzing! with Cuir Ottoman being a close second ... unless you want to get into old school tobacco leathers which would be a whole different ballgame.

    TF Tuscan Leather.

    I still don't believe Chergui has an ounce of leather in it. I'd like to see the official notes on that one.

    I have no idea what is the best leather.

    Cuiron was just too dry for me. I used to prefer Ayala's Rebellius as the best. Then I found Serge Lutens Cuir Mauresque - fantastic but it is a sweet fruit leather that wears thin after a while. I discovered Knize Ten and it is really a great pure leather, but a little harsh at the opening and just hard to wram up to. Parfum d Habit is great for the occasional cold winter day when you need a heavy animal hide and pine forest leather. But, I find I wear light leather more often. For light leather Dior Homme is really nice but it is it a floral iris or a leather? People call Duro a leather fragrance and I like it better than all of the above, but I really don't think it is a leather fragrance - its more an incense oriental I think. I guess the best overall leather is probably Pinaud's Special Reserve which is a low cost splash spanish leather - $7 a bottle! It's my favorite right now.

    The market is wide open for a great leather scent it seems to me.

    Eau d'Hermes is the only leather frag I'm particularly attached to.

    Knize Ten for me now, but if I were under 25, definitely the Heeley Fine Leather.
