CdR is one of my favourite Chanels, along with No 19, but they really don't have that much in common to me... CdR (parfum) has a lot in common with No 5 actually, especially the base with its musk, civet and sandalwood.
No 19 is very green, there is a good amount of iris, but I don't get much leather at all... Try to find vintage No 19 if you can, it's softer, rounder and mossier than the current. No 19 of today is a kind of sharp, clean, fresh edt, a more floral and sweet edp or a parfum which is close to the edt but deeper and richer.
La Pausa and the other green/irisy Chanels have more in common with No 19 than CdR or other Chanels.
If you want more Chanel leather, you can try to find some vintage Antaeus from before the mid 90's (that's when it had its major reformulation).
