    Default Looking for a leather and tobacco scent without all of the fruity or campfire components.

    Ive tried quite a few scents, but I just cannot seem to find what I am looking for, I thought maybe the knowledgeable folks here could help. I tried the search function, but seem to find scents that are mainly tobacco or mainly leather, but not any that are both with the other scents that I want.

    The best way I can describe what I am looking for is this:
    My grandfather was very wealthy and always had his pipe with the finest tobacco. I didnt like the smell of his pipe nearly as much as I loved the smell of the unused pipe tobacco that he kept in a box on his desk. All of his furniture was custom made overstuffed with very thick buttery soft leather that filled the room with its scent and his car interiors smelled the same, but even more so due to the confined space. I used to love the strong leather scent that filled the air of his office or car and that fine sweet robust pipe tobacco scent that wafted through the air mixing with that rich leather smell.

    I want a scent that smells smells like leather first, pipe tobacco second and is distinctly masculine. I am not remotely interested in something that could be described as unisex or that a woman might want to wear unless she wanted to smell like a man. Id also like it to have decent longevity, even if it is very strong at first. The last few scents Ive tried really did not have the staying power Id like.

    I dont want all of the fruity citrus, bacon campfire, or cigar type scents that most of leather or tobacco colognes seem to have that I have tried. I have not tried the expensive and I have not tried the hard to find, but I am willing to try either, I just want to know what to look at before I spend the money..unlike my grandfather, I am not wealthy lol. So think fine unlit pipe tobacco and the smell of a brand new very high end car's handmade rich leather interior. I wish I could describe it more eloquently, but thats the smell I remember. I definitely want the scent to smell like something an older gentleman might wear and not something that is considered hip and young. I definitely dont want it to smell "fresh or citrus".

    I hope this makes sense. If anyone could help me I would greatly appreciate it.

    Welcome, JC.

    Le Dandy by Parfums D'Orsay has tobacco and a leathery note. A crisp topnote, with ginger and boozy whiskey.

    (However, don't believe the marketing story about the namesake being a perfumer. All advertising.)

    http://perfumesmellinthings.blogspot...-le-dandy.html

    For a true leather scent, try Parfum d'Empire Cuir Ottoman; this is a leather opening with floral. For a wonderful fresh (unsmoked) pipe tobacco, try By Killian Back to Black.

    It is wise to sample before you buy.

    tobacco vanille by tom ford has tobacco leaf, flower and pipe tobacco with vanilla, bois du portugal by creed is a woodsy scent but could be interpreted as a tobacco type of scent either of those would be good to try out.

    This was my idea too, at least for the tobacco. I've been satisfied with several leather frags, including The Knize Ten. I went to http://www.perfumersapprentice.com and bought some tobacco absolute. It's cheap. However, you have to dilute it with something, and that's what I'm experimenting with now, because the longevity isn't very good yet. Call Linda up (owner) and ask her what she thinks. She was very helpful when I talked to her. My suggestion is to use some amber too, or else it might be too "rough," but see what she thinks.

    This is the first thing I thought of.
    http://www.sonomascentstudio.com/tabac4.shtml

    Although its listed as unisex, it leans very much to the masculine side IMO.
    Don't worry, the only fruit I get is a tinge of cherry in the beginning.

    Tabac Aurea is an amazing scent. This review says it all.

    Roger Gallet L'Homme Essential is very much in the pipe tobacco realm. It might be discontinued, but it's still fairly available online.

    For niche, look into a sample of Sonoma Scent Studio's Tabac Aurea

    For designer, I found MCM Success and Capucci Punjab to do nicely.

    What you are looking for is already in the market. Although it has been discontinued, you can get it cheap in ebay, and I think Fragancenet offers the 3.4 oz. bottle for less than 15 bucks. Very masculine, tobacco and woods are the main notes, and you can smell some leather in the background. The perfume is called "Cigar aficionado" and it is reviewed here in basenotes.
    You got to give it a try.

    Wow! Thanks for all of the replies so quickly, I thought I would be waiting days, not minutes! I have researched several of the fragrances mentioned already and have read some reviews of the new ones that I had not heard of before your posts. So far the Tabac Aurea has my attention the most, even though it says that it can be worn by a man or a woman. Le Dandy by Parfums D'Orsay also seems very interesting. Im really trying to avoid anything that has been discontinued, Ive been down that road before and I just hate falling in love with a scent only to have trouble finding it when I want to buy another bottle. I will try samples of a few of these scents but for the price of the small Tabac Aurea, I may just buy it so I have something to wear regularly for now. My last two colognes that I have are both summer scents, a Trumpers sandlewood which is nice, but definitely not a winter scent and a L'Octaine that just doesnt last long enough to be worth wearing

    Tuscan leather is plenty of leather and something you should definitely check out
    Tobacco Vanille doesn't seem to fit your bill. It's a sweet gourmand and doesn't suit entirely what you're looking for.

    Default Re: Looking for a leather and tobacco scent without all of the fruity or campfire components.

    Tuscan Leather has that fairly dominant raspberry accord though. A combination of both leather, tobacco and woods and pepper, no sweetness would be something like Tommy Bahama original, but it may be too thin for your taste. Although it contains no fruits, it's still somewhat of an aquatic. Another recommendation is Cigar by Remy Latour, very inexpensive, smells like fresh cut Cuban cigars, but not so much pipe tobacco; it's both sweet and spicy but well balance between the two.

    The shopping cart is currently down, but you can still get 1 or 2.5ml samples.
    I highly recommend at least trying it for now. If you like it, you have something to look forward to.

    I ordered a sample of the tabac aurea and the tuscan leather. I know the tuscan leather probably isnt for me, but by best friend wanted to try it any way, so I told him Id just give it to him after I tried it. Im REALLY hoping I dont like the tuscan leather, its a bit pricey. I travel and I would be really annoyed if I lost a 170.00 bottle of cologne. I also like that Somona Scent Studio is US based and independently owned. I'll order another sample or two after I get those two in.

    I sincerely think that you're looking for Pascal Morabito's Or Black. Really, I think it matches what you're seeking to a tee; no other frills.

    It sounds neat, but its just too hard to find. I dont mind not being able to walk into a local store to get it, but if I cant find it in regular sizes by a quick google search, I dont want to tease myself.

    Santa Maria Novella has two fragrances you might find interesting. Check out the directory; for example foetidus' reviews of both, Tabacco Toscano (for some reason it's "Tobacco" in the directory) and Acqua di Cuba, are very good.

    Tuscan Leather, for me, is a realistic leather. Smells like of a brand new car or an expensive, Italian leather bag. Just smells luxurious. Would like to know what you think when you get the sample.

    The only way to get Or Black retail is via Pascal Morabitos' homepage but you can find reasonably priced 4ml-miniatures/samples on eBay for testing purposes. In my opinion, the fragrance is awesome and worth the hassle but I am not sure if it's what you are looking for as I don't really detect any pipe tobaco in it.

    I didn't see any mention of Miller Harris' Feuilles de Tabac, but I'm a big fan of it so thought I would recommend this one. Very masculine, smooth, and rich blend of fresh tobacco (no smoke at all) with the tiniest bit of spice (nowhere near the spice level of Havana, which is why I prefer it to Havana's cinnamon overload) The smoothness and density of the tobacco note in this scent invokes expensive leather in that it's smooth, soft, and very clean, yet dense. Longevity is excellent, it's an all-day frag for sure.

    Try to keep an open mind about what is "masculine" or "feminine" as you explore different scents. You will find that many fragrances are gender neutral. The gender designation of fragrance is really mostly marketing. In the end, wear what you enjoy and forget about the label.

    Le Dandy is now available in the eau de parfum strength and is found in the U.S. at MIN New York. I think they no longer make the eau de toilette (in the silver cap). If it's a comfort to you, Le Dandy is described as a "hearty, masculine scent" with a tobacco base:

    I'll throw out two from Odori.

    Tabacco and Cuoio. Both are well made and done with a minimum of the kind of notes you are looking to avoid.

    Both are fairly discreet scents, well made and quite masculine. Nothing about them is "unisex."

    Tabacco has a heavy duty pipe tobacco and vanilla vibe. It wears very well on me and is very well done.

    Cuoio is their leather scent.

    Odori scents don't get a lot of love here because they are very pricey, and while very well made, they don't "stand out" as much a scent like Tuscan Leather or Tobacco Vanille. They are good gentlemen's scents.

    I like and wear both TL and TV, but my sense of you is that those two will scare you.
