    You can buy Knize Ten and the special edition through Lucky Scent. I think there is also a Basenotes promotion and discount.

    The best true leather scents for me are Cuir Pleine Fleur and the limited Angel Cuir, the latter reputed to have extracts of real leather.

    Of the contemporary leathers...
    +1 Cuiron by Helmut Lang (d/c)
    +1 Tuscan Leather
    Both have a simple straightforward leather as the dominate scent.... also Tom Ford Extreme is excellent and leathery but much more complex.

    Yes!!!!! Both are brilliant, but also Knize Ten (original), Yatagan, Cuiron, Mugler A*Men Cuir and TF Tuscan Leather. Different leather notes in each of them.

    I would say Knize Ten for a full on, hairy chested leather.
    Cuir Ottoman for a more suede-like, smooth leather.
    Baladin by PdN is rather restrained and discreet, but nice nonetheless.
    Derby is my favourite, a sharp, bitter leather chypre.

    Don't forget Citta de Kyoto by Santa Maria Novella, a very odd leather, indeed.

    Interesting. All this debate about what smells most like "real" leather, yet I've never smelled one single fragrance that actually smells like leather. I do like Tuscan Leather, Knize Ten, Cuiron and Cuir Ottoman a lot, but do they literally smell like leather? Not really. If you sprayed leather with Tuscan Leather, then it would smell like Tuscan Leather, and it wouldn't seem out of place, but leather doesn't smell like that all by itself. At least not any leather I've smelled.

    all of these smell like there may be a leather note within perfume. there is one though, that smells like leather. it is pinaud clubman special reserve. it is full on leather. it reminds me of what my belt tasted like when i was a kid. for whatever reason i used to chew on the end of an old leather belt. when i first smelled special reserve it brought the memory back to me of the taste of my old leather belt. MAN that sounds weird... but its true. pure leather. the leatheriest leather ive ever smelled. francesco smalto smells similar but bitter.

    Knize Ten - Not the most leathery, but certainly the best.

    Aside from Leather Accord and Suederal from Perfumer's Apprentice, to me the most direct leathery leathers are:
    ++ Montale Oud Cuir d'Arabie
    Ajmal Dehn al Oudh
    <unsourced> Attar al Madina
    Simplex Sigillum Veri
