    There are several...leather is treated a variety of ways... Some very "realistic" leather and some more blended in with other notes...

    Several very good ones already mentioned here.

    To build on StylinLA's post.

    There are several renditions of leather. Soft but deep with incense like in Cuir Ottoman.
    Sharp and resinous as in Cuir Mauresque.
    Soft and sublime - Cuiron.
    Animalic, woody and smoky - Leather Oud.
    Intense and floral - Cuir de Lancome.

    for swap/sale:

    Perfectly put...I was too lazy to go down that path. Grifter, you just have to read up in directory and sample.

    Enough already, but I will toss in a few more:
    Rien: bitter, slightly animalic, almost disturbing.
    Azuree: bright, confident, citrusy (also cheap, at least in the US).
    Boadicea complex: unwearable, overpowering, but must be smelled.
    And +1 Bandit, green, strong, s&m.

    all of the above plus...

    Cuir Venenuum (one of the two alternatives to Helmut Lang Cuiron)
    Cuir Pleine Fleur (subtle violet leaf/leather concoction. Incredibly refined and easy to wear)
    1740 (lush and bold leather/pipe tobacco/immortelle combo)
    Dzing! (challenging vanilla/leather)
    Patchouli 24 (animalic vanilla/leather)
    Knize Sec (incense/leather)

    ok, let's stop it here....

    I periodically go through leathery phases. Here are the leather fragrances I currently rate highest:

    My top pick after forty-odd leather fragrances:

    Parfum d'Empire Cuir Ottoman ( smooth iris leather )

    Excellent leather fragrances:

    Pascal Morabito Or Black ( similar to Cuir Ottoman, with tobacco rather than iris )
    Caron En Avion / Tabac Blond ( truly sister fragrances, both leathery-floral )
    Heeley Cuir Pleine Fleur ( earthy, violety, woody leather )
    L'Artisan Dzing! ( softy, skanky strangeness )

    +1 Dzing! Lartisan Parfumeur
    +1 Etat Libre D'Orange Rien

    Both wonderfully different takes on leather, unlike anything else you will try.

    just because it hasn't been mentioned - Heeley Cuir Plen Fleur.

    but my vote goes for the Chanel Russie, maybe the Tuscan Leather
    NEW STUFF FOR SALE - TOM FORD, Guerlain, Acqua Di Parma, Serge Lutens, Byredo, Diptyque, etc. .

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads
