    Chevignon Brand for Men comes closest to this description, uniting more or less of all these four notes in one male scent

    I'm imagining a fresh, crisp, briny fragrance in the Grey Vetiver-Sel de Vetiver-Erolfa territory. None of these have any leather though, to my nose.

    Quiksilver for men...
    But there is no leather in it, though :/
    This is more like an average scent, nothing spetacular...

    Fleurs de Sel - Miller Harris sans the leather. Instead slightly floral.

    for swap/sale:

    On most on line fragrance sites, however I bought my bottles in regular retail, before this store disbanded, was sold/merged etc.

    I get a salty, leathery, woody drydown from Bvlgari Aqva. But I dislike the aquatic/pool impression. So I kind of look for the same thing in a citrus eau de cologne style fragrance...

    Seriously, though, I thought I would have no answer for this. But on my arm as I'm typing is Tilda Swinton Like This. The salt and the leather are definitely delivering. There is a touch of citrus in the opening. The immortelle has a very slight dry woodiness, but this is probably the one area where it might not live up to everything you're looking for.

    JAR should be on top of this anytime soon.

    I'm also thinking about the general direction of Sel de vetiver. Also Eau sauvage cuir fraicheur (though there's no salt, really).

    cacio

    Wait till you smell Ferme Tes Yeux. Oh, hold on. *ding* *ding* *ding* *ding* Even though it meets all the criteria, it's not a very practical suggestion.

    Sel de Vetiver would kill this were it not for the leather criterion.

    It's from this super-edgy niche firm that works from a basement in Chinatown. You obviously just don't get it. They probably wouldn't even sell it to you.

    it has leather as well, if you trust the notes listed more than your nose

    I'd suggest tirrenico.

    Annick Goutal Vetiver - raw and green vetiver on the inhale followed by an iodine note that smells salty and leathery on the exhale.

    Miller Harris Cuir Oranger - oranges and leather.

    Neil Morris Leather Garden - spring florals, vetiver, blackberry with nice medium tone leather. nice mix.

    If it is fine that the salt is from human origin (sweat) I'd say Eau d'Hermes.

    +1 but agree that it lacks saltiness.
