    Default Bottega Veneta EDP or Heeley Cuir Pleine Fleur?

    Which one has more leather?

    I am not into subtle leathers. If a leather note is in a fragrance, it should get top billing, IMO.

    The bottega is a nice fragrance and the powderiness reminds me of Chloe in a way. The leather is almost nonexistent as in Heely but the Heely is a smidgen more prominent with leather but still quite nonexistent. I am use to powerhouse leathers I suppose.

    Heeley Cuir Pleine Fleur for me.

    Thank you for the replies. I like strong leathers like Tuscan Leather, Charles Street and Aramis.

    Thank you, Scentologist, but I have a bit of problem with Bond No. 9 based on what they do to small private perfumers like Anya McCoy and Liz Zorn:

    I don't find them to be comparable. To me the Bottega has a chypre-y structure that CPF completely lacks pushing the accelerator on a solid violet/vetiver/birch accord that reults overall more "msculine". As for the leather, they're both more suede-y than leathery...Overall, I strongly prefer CPF.

    I didn't get much (if any) leather from Bottega's offering. It seemed to be more of a patchouli affair, with added moss and pink pepper.
    Cuir pleine fleur is a softer suede with prominent violet and cedar.

    I'm not sure if either are what you are looking for, Primrose.
    Have you tried MPG's Cuir Fétiche ?

    CPF has far more leather than BV to my nose.

    BV is more of a suede akin to Daim Blonde and like DB has a fruity/peachy element that can be quite dominant.
