    Good score! This thread is making me wear Cuir Ottoman today. Lovely stuff.

    @tott

    How would you say that Tom Ford Extreme differs from Cuir Ottoman?

    Well... Tom Ford is a woody, spicy, warm, traditional men's fragrance with a touch of leather (very nice!) while Cuir Ottoman is pure luxurious leather with subdued fruit and flowers.

    Ok, I will make sure to check out TF Extreme as well. I tend to like woods & spices.

    Agreed.

    The only scent that I've found that smells like 'shoe polish type' leather, is Knize Ten.
    It still is different from 'shoe leather' smell but you are within the range.
    Yeah, remembering my test of Knize 10 and it's pretty intense leather for sure. Put this on the list point blank.

    OK, no one else has mentioned it so, here it goes; Cuir de Lancome.

    Sorry PointBlank, I've never tried those two. However after reading this thread, I would love to smell both of them.

    Also, IMO Knize Ten does NOT smells like new leather shoes. Leather (birch tar) specifically? Yes! But not that tanned, oily, shoe-polish sort of smell.

    Hats off to you Mike for having such a blessed nose.

    I just test sprayed this today as I was choosing between scents that I don't wear and deciding if I want to keep them or not.
    I had read your post a few days ago and though I disagreed at the time, I have to admit that you were right.

    This actually smells like the insides of a new leather shoe. I can't imagine how you can make that connection.
    Your nose is a genius mate.

    Cool Re: Evening scent that smells like new leather shoes?

    OK, I've never sampled Cuir Ottoman but I have sampled some of the others, get the C.O.

    Though I am a huge fan of Royal English Leather, but it seems that it's not not what you're asking for.

    BTW, should you ever desire a high quality leather glove scent, the kind of glove used by aristocratic duelists when they drew their rapiers and saluted their opponents just before skewering them, give a whiff to this allegedly 300 year old formula:
