    Default cuir + fleur d'oranger

    Is there such a fragrance?? MAYBE Creed's Royal english leather, but I guess it's discontinued...

    Cuir d'Oranger

    Can still be found online though.


    ___________________________


    I'll also add the new Seville a L'Aube by L'Artisan Parfumeur

    Its not leather + orange per se but the combination of beexwax, incense and benzoin pose somewhat like leather and the combination of petit grain and other green notes resemble orange.
    for swap/sale:

    Caron En Avion was also an orange blossom plus leather. But vintage. The current one who knows what it may smell like. Not much leathery, I think.

    Having tried quite a few fragrances by Miller Harris based on the notes' list I found those being less distinctive than expected. and often even boring (I.E. Geranium Bourbon, Noix de Tubereuse, La Pluie)

    Ehm...I found 2 samples of Mark Birely's fragrance in my "box of samples" I'm off to try that....

    About Divin'Enfant...well, maybe I overlooked that, I remember that being very sweet, and don't recall smelling leather in it, but I may be wrong, anyway, I'll try that again tomorrow as the shop selling it is just in my street,

    Thanks Alfarom, you're ever so helpful!

    I hated Divin'Enfant and only moderately liked Charles Street...Unfortunately I'm not a big fan of orange blossom, I just reported some fragrances listing the two notes you mentioned. Hope you'll find something to your taste...

    I've just sprayed my Charles St. sample...and.....it's quite interesting to me, but, I don't know how to say that...(ehm) I get just a hint of a "dirty teenager socks rolled in a wet towel, both left for 3 days in the nylon gym bag" (oh my! I wrote THAT!) note in the beginning which annoys me a little (surrounded by a pleasing vibe, though)...then it gets really good!

    Yet, I was looking for a "fin de Siecle" feeling to it: I would like SMN's Peau D'Espagne with orange blossoms in it!

    ok, I get it: I'll try Knize.
