    Another vote for the Sonoma Scent. Another plus is its 'extrait concentration' which makes it even more full bottle-worthy imo. What if you don't like it? You can always sell it to me.

    Good luck in your search, but I think you're going to find it a tough go, especially if you're listing the order in which you want to actually smell notes. As for some of the recommendations: I don't get leather out of Le Dandy. Though I love it, it has a tendency to remind me of some old shampoo we used to have growing up, called Apple Pectin. I also never any leather out of Havana, let alone tobacco.

    I would have suggested L'Artisan L'eau du Navigateur, as there's certainly leather and tobacco in it, however, it IS smokey and probably not quite what you're looking for.

    I would second the Odori Tabacco, just to at least try, along with Hilde Soliani Bell'Antonio. The later doesn't have a leather note listed, but it's another one that may just very well fit the bill and probably one of the better ones I've smelled closed to what you're looking for.

    So far Ive only received the tabac aurea. I really like the scent, the tabaco reminds me very much of what my grandfather used to use. I do wish it had more of a leather scent though. I definitely like it enough to consider buying, but the longevity just isnt there for some reason. It seemed to virtually disappear after a bout 4 hours of wear.

    That being said, does anyone know of a cologne every similar to the tabac aurea, but with more leather? Also, has anyone else had an issue with longevity? I assumed that given the concentration, it would last longer.

    Tabac Aurea strikes me as very boozy in the top notes.

    Have you tried Histoires de Parfums 1740 Marquis de Sade? This is an interesting leather scent, but not inexpensive. Don't let the name of this scent fool you, as it is an enjoyable, complex scent.

    I got the Tuscan Leather and I dont care for it much. It has too much of an earthy / smokey smell for me. I'll wear it for a while tonight and see how it smells as it mellows. Im going to try some more samples from the perfumed court based on some of the responses here. Thanks.

    Ok after about 2 hours of wearing Tuscan Leather I had to wash it off. It smelled like a old womans perfume to me, I couldnt take it. There is leather and tobacco, but its over powered by a scent that I can only describe as baby powder and fruit. I dont know if I got the wrong sample, or what. Any ideas?

    Either Havana or Puig Quorum is what you're looking for.

    Original Tabarome has strong tobacco and leather notes

    Sorry for the delayed response, but the decants from the perfumed court just got here yesterday.

    So, I decided to try creed bois du portugal, royal scottish lavender, and vintage tabarome to compare to my favorite so far which is Tabac Aurea. I know the scottish lavender really isnt in the same scent category, but it seemed interesting so I figured Id try it.

    I loved all of the creed scents when they were in the decants, they smelled lovely, but on me they were another story. The tabarome simply smelled like indian food to me. It just had this spicy smell that I did not at all care for. The scottish lavender smelled to much like irish spring soap for my liking. However the bois du portugal did have a wonderful scent is was very long lasting. I really do enjoy and I might enjoy it more than the Tabac Aurea, but I dont know that I enjoy it enough to cost as many times more than the tabac aurea as it does.

    Your thoughts? Has anyone tried both tabac aurea and creed bois du portugal? If so which do you prefer and why?

    Thanks!

    Leather and tobacco? Try Dior's Leather Oud. It's all about cigars and armchairs - the ultimate drawing room scent.

    Best tobacco/leather scent i've tried is hands down Amouage Tribute attar. It smells incredibly luxurious, is quite complex and everything seems to work right. A quick description of it would be tobacco/leather/incense tempered with jasmine, there is a lot more going on with it though. Unfortunately it is quite expensive and there is also the hassle of applying the oil (i never seem to manage to put the right amount, tips would be welcome). I only have a 0.25ml sample and it's currently #1 in my buying wishlist.

    What you're looking for might just be in either Vermeil for Men, Cigar by Remy Latour, and/or Bogart pour Homme. All can be had for around $20/bottle.

    I'll add another vote for Or Black. Best fragrance I know containing both notes.
