I have never liked leather dominant fragrances, but I tried Parfumerie Generale's Cuir d'Iris today and was totally won over. It's lovely and soft, with a touch of gorgeous buttery iris, and finishes with a beautiful, powdery sweet leather with a very slightly smoky aura. I'm not going to run out and buy it, but I feel very pleased that I've found a leather perfume I really enjoy.

How about everyone else? Which notes have always turned you off, and which perfumes brought you back from the dark side?

I've always hated patchouli, the closest I've got to enjoying it so far is in Black Aoud!
