    I rather like Cuir de Lancôme, though leather is not a major part of my fragrance repertoire.

    Knize ten is my favorite leather. I'm also starting to like tauer lone star memories more and more. It's quite unique in its leather and sand. But I always come back to Knize ten, even the new formulation is beautiful to me. Lots going on... leaves, leather, vetiver, floral, leather, then more leather, petrol... truly interesting and never offensive Knize ten.. I've sampled many others and didn't care for,them. Cuir de Russie was the biggest disappointment to me. Followed by serge Lutens cuir mauresque.

    There are so many I like, among them - BelAmi & Derby
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Favourite leathers would be Cuir Mauresque and vintage Tabac Blond. A couple of recent ones I really like are LM Hard Leather, which is a fairly aggressive leather; and, on the other end of the spectrum, Prada's Marienbad.

    My two absolute favorites are Chanel Cuir de Russie and Caron En Avion, but I wear and enjoy lots of others.

    Oh, and vintage Chanel No. 19

    I didn't get much leather from Puredistance M, but then I don't from vintage no 19 either (though I love no 19 and know it's meant to be there).

    Creed Love in Black has no leather notes in its pyramid but the drydown is reminiscent of fine suede

    I love:
    Cuir de Russie - smooth, supple, floral, luxurious, sexy lambskin glove leather
    Blacks Club Leather - warm, deep, smokey, boozy, tobacco-infused comfortable chesterfield chair leather
    Tuscan leather - thick, new, unyielding leather with tart red fruit

    1740 Marquis de sade is also a lovely dark boozy, dried fruit-like, smokey leather, but you have to love the strong immortelle note that comes along with it.

    Has anyone mentioned Cuir D'Ange (Hermes)? I love Kelly Caleche, the kid being stronger in the EDT as already mentioned, then there's Bandit, (reformulated to a high standard) Cabochard (I believe the EDP is passable these days) and the Bal a Versailles herself. I chose the moniker for Basenotes, believing that the perfume was dead and almost unknown, but I didn't understand Basenotes at all back then. We cling to references of leather, the ultimate being Doblis I guess.

    I get a strong cold cream note in Cuir d'Ange which turns me off.
    The smoky vanilla, combined with the animalic base, gives Shalimar a fantastic leather drydown.

    Because I am elderly my dear (62) the cold cream smell, Noa, Nivea or Ponds is deeply nostalgic. There were enormous pots of it when we were doing school theatrical productions and I loved removing stage makeup with it. Sometimes I think it's hard to get one's head around just how sensational a perfume Shalimar is. I'm out of the perfume, but I still have Eau de Cologne and love it.

    My vote goes to Bandit all the way. Kelly Caleche is good in a sharper way (could possibly be attributed to the grapefruit?). I guess it depends on how you like your leather; Guerlain's Cuir Beluga is very sanitised and new smelling. I prefer mine a bit daring and more horse saddle than kidskin gloves.

    TF Tuscan Leather is an absolute favourite for the big birch tar. Also love Bvlgari Black for the hot rubber. Definitely feeling the dirtier, smokier end of the leather spectrum, but also love equestrian and stable leather smells.

    Testlist, thanks mostly to BN research:
    Knize 10
    Tauer Lonestar Memories
    Cuir de Russie (vintage)
    Bandit
    Dzing!
    Will happily take suggestions for more equestrian-style leathers.

    (PS Knize 10 pronunciation - "nyze" or "neeze"?)
