    Default Which is your favorite LEATHER?

    Out of the choices below, which is your favorite leather fragrance?


    Maybe this can be kind of like a "Battle for the Heavyweight Title of Best Leather"....

    They're aren't any choices below (yet- you may still be composing), but I'd say my overall favorite is TF Tuscan Leather. But it's close with that and Knize 10 or Royal English Leather.

    Tuscan Leather wears the loudest on me of the bunch. I also love Habit Rouge, but it's so well blended I don't think of it much as a leather scent.
    Currently wearing: Uomo by Valentino

    I dont see any choices either. Are you creating a poll?
    I know its a 2-step process.

    My top 3:

    Cuir de Russie - Guerlain
    XerJoff Homme - XerJoff
    Cuir - Mona di Orio

    EDITED TO ADD:
    Now I see your options, I choose Derby and Tabac Blond, though the latter is a little less 'leather' than some of the others to my nose. All in all a hard lineup to choose from. I was not at all enamoured with the modern Chanel CdR. Trying to pass that off as "Russian leather" is a bit of a lark. Russian leather has a distinctive odor profile thanks to the tanning process and oils used to treat the leather afterward, and the Chanel doesnt even come close!

    I like variety and I have to be in the mood, no matter how much I "objectively" like it. Over the last several months, I've become a leather frag fan. I think that leather (or suede) often balances out a frag well, while at the same time adding an additional note that makes it more complex and dynamic. On the other hand, I find that wood or vetiver generally unbalances a frag while not making it more dynamic.

    Dior Fahrenheit, Hermès Bel Ami and Estee Lauder Azurée.

    This is a tough one. I cannot just choose one. I'll just say, someday I would like to own:

    Chanel Cuir de Russie
    Guerlain Derby
    Serge Lutens Cuir Mauresque
    Tom Ford Tuscan Leather
    Knize Ten

    Perhaps we can draft up an ULTIMATE list of leather fragrances....

    @ subhuman --- I've never thought of Fahrenheit having a leathery accord. I haven't smelled it in years, perhaps I need to re-evaluate.

    It was a tie between K10 and REL, although I voted K10. To be fair, I'm not familiar with most on the list, however.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    They are so very similar but there is just something missing from REL that makes me pick the K10.

    For me: Chanel, followed by Guerlain, Knize 10, Caron, Bandit. Haven't tried the others.
    Do love me some leather though.

    I voted for Creed REL, but it could've just as easily been one of the others.

    Oh, yes. It smells like a warm leather jacket from the middle to the early drydown - incredibly sexy. And The Guide classifies it as a "woody leather", so it's not just me and my apparent ability to smell leather notes where no one else does. (It's there in Gucci Rush and Chanel Coco, I swear! And Dior Homme? So leathery! Why are you all looking at me like that?!)

    Ahhh, Gucci Rush. I might have just one little spray left.

    Default Re: Which is your favorite LEATHER?

    I picked OR Black because it was my favorite fragrance of the group - but it is definitely not my favorite leather. Leather is not a faovorite note of mine, but I like leather as a secondary aspect in the drydown of an interesting fragrance like Morabito Or Black. For lovers of leather fragrance I heartily recommend any of the new oud leather fragrances that have emerged. Oud works so wonderfully to create a leather note. The best oud leathers are: Christian Dior Leather Oud, Byredo Accord Oud and Bond No. 9 Harrod's Ltd. Edition (Oud).

    I voted for Cuir de Lancome. Great stuff at a bargain price.

    I`m not a big fan of plain leather scents, but I like scents with a hint of leather, such as Parfumerie Generale Corps et Ames and Hermes Bel Ami.
    -I would very much like to test REL, but where can I get a sample? Creedboutique doesn`t ship to scandinavia, Luckyscent doesn`t carry REL, and I don`t think I can order a sample from Raffy..

    I'll always have a soft spot for REL. It was my first Creed and given to me by someone special. It's also a gorgeous, sexy scent.

    From that list, Derby - although I'm waiting on a sample to test Knize Ten, and God-and-Sorcery-of-Scent-willing, I will be winning a bottle of Xerjoff Homme soon!

    I am a big fan of fragrances with leather accord(s) in the base. Yatagan and Aramis fit the bill just fine, as does R de Capucci!
