I love Tuscan Leather, but am ho-hum about Dior Homme. Tuscan Leather is one of my favorite leather scents, while there are many many more interesting and enjoyable iris scents compared to Dior Homme, only in my opinion.

Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

Dior Homme is one of the most unique fragrances out there, IMO. The sillage & longevity is something that rather disappoints me. However you can smell it from up close & boy does it smell divine.
Tuscan Leather is one of my biggest compliment getter. It has one of the best sillage, I've encountered in 100's of fragrances that I've owned & tried. It is fairly linear and doesn't change much from the start to finish.
Well Dior Homme can be worn more often in a variety of settings whereas TL is more like once a week/month kind of scent. You can't smell of leather all the time, everyday. If versatility is your thing, then it has to be Dior Homme but don't expect to get noticed or anything. If you want people to follow you because of your scent, it's gotta be TL.
I'd say that Dior Homme is, as most designer fragrances, more unobjectionable than niche fragrances. Tom Ford's private blend isn't known to be too challenging, but Tuscan Leather can still be a problem for people who are not into dark, leather scents.
I like TL more than DH, but depending on what you want the scent for, you'll have to decide which fits the bill more.
