    Not smelling it. They are definitely in the same chypre/leather category; I really like them both quite a bit, but I'm not smelling the similarities. Between Havana and Montana I do smell the similarities though.

    You're no doubt smelling that which all chypre's have in common, the earthiness/mossiness in the base. Sometimes it's toned down, as in Pour Monsieur, but the tenor of it in Havana and Derby is comparable.

    Not only what Chypres have in common, but what Leather Chypres have in common I think.
