Thanks for the suggestion though at least I've discovered a new fragrance house thanks to you.
    If you like violet, you might want to try Guerlain Arsene Lupin, an oriental violet leather! I was once known as Guerlain Arsene Lupin Dandy until Parfums D'Orsay decided that a generic word like "dandy" could be trademarked. And the irony is that Guerlain has the genuine historical pedigree.

    (For more information on the start-up of the D'Orsay company, see:
    Nigel Groom, 2nd ed. "The Perfume Handbook."
    Ken Leach. "Perfume Presentations."
    Madeline Marsh. "Miller's Perfume Bottles: A Collector's Guide.")
    Guerlain Arsene Lupin is, simply put, wonderful and worth the price.

    You're asking for something which isn't niche, yet has good longevity and projection. Tall order, but I think from a cost stand point you should try and get Mark Birley Charles Street. It's reasonably priced in Europe, compared to the US.

    Exactly. The price of most designer's.

    To the op: Mandarine? Probably yes, but while surely being a fruit, I tend to classify it as citrus....

    Well said.
    I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?

    Histoires de Parfums 1740 (Marquis de Sade) may fit the bill. Not too fruity but strange enough.

    Agree with the Varvatos recommendations. I prefer the date/cherry leather of the original over the spicy orange of Artisan Black. Can be found cheap too.

    Yeah but you're not including the cost of international shipping and taxes which we sometimes end up paying at the door over here on delivery. Not always though. Still a hassle. That's why I tend not to order anything from the U.S because even though it seems affordable it ends up costing an arm and leg unless you're ordering in bulk which I don't do.

    Already own 1 Million and Diesel Fuel For Life...the leather note is barely noticeable to me. Not looking for a projection monster or anything. Just need it to last longer than 6 hours. I want it for work. I don't like spraying something in the morning only to see that it's gone by lunch time. Like I said I'm not interested in niche fragrances. Silly prices and you rarely get what you pay for. Unless it's an affordable niche like Commes Des Garcons or Guerlain which cost around the same as the higher end designers.

    I thought of Canali Men myself. Kiton Black is another leather fragrance worth looking at.

    Okay guys after much deliberation I've decided to go with Charles Street by Mark Birley. Apparently it's a decent alternative to Tuscan Leather so I'll go with that since it is affordable. Ordered a 75ml EDP from Escentuals for £48 which is very reasonable. Thanks for all your suggestions guys. Even those who constantly mentioned niche fragrances that cost an arm and leg repeatedly, lol.

    Nemo by Cacharel and the original John Varvatos have the nicest combination of fruit and leather.

    Hi guys just reporting back on theMaark Birley Charles Street. It's exactly what I was looking for so thanks to all the guys who suggested it. Doesn't last longer than 6-7 hours though which isn't bad but does sit close to the skin after an hour.

    Glad you like it.
    Its weakness is its projection and longevity, but the price point should make that bearable. Enjoy !

    First of all, congratulations on your purchase! Enjoy it.

    Re shipment. FIY, keep in mind that you can buy most of the fragrances carried by Luckyscent also at firstinfragrance (which is an european reseller). It's definitely cheaper if you're based on this side of the sea...

    If you can get a sample of Cuir d'oranger by Miller Harris you should try it. One of the best fruity leather fragrances I've come across!

    Here's one by Mauboussin that turns up very cheap if you shop the discounters:

    Cardamom, mandarine peel, drydown into resins/leather.

    Cool bottle too.
