    Not a fan of Cuir de Russie at all. I much prefer the more modern take on leather, and even that is only an occasional wear for me.

    Without ever trying Derby. I am a huge Tuscan leather fan, I would have to say that Curion and Cuir Ottoman are close contenders. As far as pure leather scent, Xerjoff Homme is a more accurate depiction of a real leather (not so wearable). If Puredistance 'M' had more leather in it, it would wipe all the others off the map. You only get leather in 'M' on the dry down.

    Oops, ANGIESDOEBOY just saw your post. Im with you.

    Cuir de Lancome, even though it was marketed to the ladies. It's still good. Second comes Cuir de Russie Chanel and then Tabac Blond Caron EDT (older formulation). Tuscan Leather Tom Ford Private Blend most definitely if it were not for the over-priced sales tag.

    Even though it's infused with agarwood, I would throw in Leather Oud Christian Dior La Collection Couturier Parfumeur as well. It's a mighty gorgeous leather scent juxtaposed against the agarwood note. A little goes a long, long way.

    SCANDAL - LANVIN Nothing comes close. Very hard to find, but worth it.
    LANCETTI UOMO I have recently discovered this classic from 1984. A rich smoked leather. This fragrance is ,(to my nose) remarkably close to Patou Pour Homme.
    LA MARTINA HOMME An ultra smooth, sophisticated, (but powerful) leather.
    AIGNER IN LEATHER (WOMENS) A soft creamy beige leather sofa of a fragrance,( don´t touch the mens version, it´s awful).
    CUIR DE RUSSIE - CHANEL (extrait) A beautiful leather, floral combination.

    Well, I agree with the mention of Trussardi Uomo as one that has a nice bit of leather, but I wouldn't classify it as a leather-dominant fragrance. For pure leathery goodness, my vote goes to ... Cuir Ottoman. Cuir Mauresque is also very good, but it has some crazy off-putting topnotes that make it much less wearable. I've never found the love for Knize Ten, and I have a love/hate relationship with Royal English Leather.

    Default Re: Favorite LEATHER fragrance(s)

    I find leather such a hard note. Hard to find I mean.

    Instinctively I think leather ought to be hard, be tough, be rugged, be mean, be in your face. But really, in scents, I find it to be a very light scent. The airy dry scent that's like sawdust when you sniff the back of a piece of leather. We think a scent that's a leather scent must be uber-macho, but really, leather is an olfactory fake out.

    My favorite for this is Creed's Cuir de Russie. I also love the heavy Royal English Leather by the same house, but in the leather and iris creation that is Versailles Pour Homme, leather hides but unifies every part of the scent. You don't think leather when you smell it, or I don't, but then when you think about it the leather is all over.

    I am a huge fan of leather fragrances.
    Chanel's Cuir de Russie is probably the one I would take to a desert island if someone made me choose just one. Others that I really like include:

    Tuscan Leather (Overhyped, but nice.)
    Cuiron
    Knize Ten
    Parfum d'Empire Cuir Ottoman (Another favorite, and maybe the one I wear most)
    Serge Lutens Cuir Mauresque
    Duro (Leather buried under mountains of synthetic musk and amber woody notes)
    Etro's Gomma

    It's a pretty diverse group. Leather interpreted many different ways.
    A special shout out to Etro's Gomma. Underrated here.

    Grottola,

    Yes, Versailles Pour Homme by Jean Desprez is discontinued, expensive to score--and it's great! If you're fortunate enough to find it, remember it's a most sophisticated right cross to the jaw, pure 1980's; so spray very sparingly. Drydown is amazing.

    In the meantime console yourself with
    REL by Creed for opulence and, for some birch-tar, Kolnisch Juchten

    Grottola, yes to what Mario says. Versailles PH is something you've got to go Indiana Jones on to get. Its temple is long lost in the jungles in some weird geographical triangle with the lost civilization of Patou Pour Homme across the river and maize plains.

    A real collector's show piece, but more so is 40 Love by the same Jean Desprez house. I think the 40 Love temple hasn't even been found yet.

    I get some leather in Drakkar Noir, which I suppose is more wearable than most. Also, even though I haven't really worn it out yet, how about Dirty English? I think citrus notes work quite well with leather. Otherwise, it can smell very old man-like.

    - Aramis - great, underestimated isobutyl quinoline leather. Apparently very similar to vintage
    - Cabochard, which is another favourite.
    - Bandit - vintage for preference, but the current is fantastic too.
    - Azurée. Do yourself a favour and try it if you enjoy any of the above.
