    You don't ever make it easy for us, do you? ; - )

    I enjoy both, and since they are at very good prices, I would buy both. But if I could choose only one, then Cuir Ottoman, because it has a little more character and development.

    I have only tried Tuscan Leather, and personally I do not find it so fascinating due to its linearity. I would go with the Cuir

    Haven't tried Tuscan Leather , but got a sample of Cuir Ottoman from LuckyScent. Have you tried these at all yet? Blind Buying, even with input from basenoters is kinda a crapshoot. Anyway, if you like Dior Homme,but want something a bit more leathery, Cuir Ottoman may fit the bill.

    According to his wardrobe and wanted list, I am quite sure he has already tried/ previously owned/ currently owns them.

    Cuir Ottoman is in the vein of Dior Homme?

    Absolutely not , I find it quite similar to L'ombre Fauve from Parfumerie Generale

    To my nose, Cuir Ottoman's closest cousin is Or Black. Replace Or Black's tobacco with iris and florals, and amp up the power of the leather, and you've got Cuir Ottoman.

    And yes, go for Cuir Ottoman. It's more complex and interesting, and if you like both equally, I think you'll find Cuir Ottoman will ultimately be able to hold your interest for longer.

    Hey guys thanks for your responses, looks like im gonna pull the trigger on Cuir Ottoman again, I love the berry note in Tuscan Leather but man that incense note in Cuir Ottoman has its claws in me! Man Matthew I really would love to buy both, but I try to limit myself to one fragarnce a month, I already have over 80 bottles, Cuir and Tuscan would just really be my backups. I usually know what I personally enjoy, but every now and then I like to ask my Basenote buddies what they would personaly choose, it really does help in swaying my descion.
