Charles St by Mark Birley is the was to go.
Did not know if I should put this in Womens or mens fragrance section but I was wondering if anyone can recommend a similar to Tom Ford Tuscan Leather scent. My gf went to Tom Ford and came away liking that scent. However I was taken back by its price. I know reviews state it is a masculine scent and I cannot comment since I was not at store and only smelt card sprayed scent later which smelt more like spicy vanilla berries. Any help is appreciated.
This one might fit the bill....
Golden boy by Dueto Parfums
Tuscany Leather by Surrati
Try Vicolo del Sellaio by La Collina Toscana Reserve. I found it similar.
Topnote: Thyme, Saffron, Raspberry
Heartnote: Frankincense, Jasmine
Basenote: Leather, Ambergris, Vanilla
It is pretty easy to find splits of Tuscan leather.... I got a small 5ml decant for $15.
Black Saffron by Byredo reminds me of it. I see similarities in Charles St, but TL is much better to me.
Identical but less pricey would be 10ml decant of Tom Ford's Tuscan Leather or so.
You can even score 4ml sample for free if you know how to play SAs.
Pal Zileri Cuoio
Montale - Aoud Leather
Parfums de Marly - Godolphin
Both of them are in the same vein.

Golden Boy or Charles St are both nearly identical.
I don't get any leather out of Golden boy though. It feels like the drydown of TL to me.
Charles street is probably as close as you're gonna get
Thanks for all the replies everybody. I will try to buy Charles Street online. Where did everybody purchase Parfums de Marly - Godolphin though? I cannot find it online.
Tom Tuskan Leather by Surrati smells just like Tuscan Leather. It's a very good clone. Only comes in oil version though.

Ausliebezumduft also sells Vicolo de Sellaio; 85 euros vs. 140 euros for Godolphin. Both of these are more 'exuberant' than Tuscan Leather (Godolphin all the more so) so I would consider sampling before buying.
Blood concept type 0. I find it even more in-your-face which in this case is the point anyway, imo
I find Naomi Goodsir's Cuir Velours to be what Tuscan Leather wants to be.
Hi Marais, Thank you for your suggestion and reply. By exuberant, what do you mean exactly? I plan to go to Tom Ford to try out next week but most reviews I have read online seem to state that TF Tuscan Leather is a bit "louder" and more in your face but good longevity compared to Charles St. and Godolphin. I just hope its not in your face like m7 which actually gives me a headache.
Godolphin lasts all day on me and so does Vicolo del Sellaio. I didn't get on with Charles Street due a 'caramel' note I found a bit nauseating. By 'exuberant' I mean the supporting notes are more prominent than they are in Tuscan Leather (raspberry, vanilla etc). They are still primarily leather scents however. Unfortunately I do not think there is anywhere in UK to test Vicolo del Sellaio but you can order samples should you wish from link I posted above. You can sample Godolphin at Fortnum and Mason. Vicolo del Sellaio is similar but much cheaper and just as good IMHO.
Oops just realised you are in US. No idea if Parfums de Marly are available there either but again Ausliebezumduft sells samples.
