    Tough choice. I ultimately went with Bandit, but Rien is up there. And so are many others.

    For the ultimate in leathery-ness, you should smell (but not wear) that realistic impression of drowing into a tannery pool, Complex by Boadicea.

    + 2 Im really for Helmut Lang Curion as an overall leather scent. Not an easy one to come across, either.

    I have to admit that I have not sampled many on the list but of those listed I voted for Leather Oud. One not listed that is my top favorite is Parfums Regence Kolnisch Juchten. Dark and deep Russian Leather. Smells a bit like a campfire and a bit meaty to start.
    1. Epic Man by Amouage (33 wears)
    2. Leather Oud by Christian Dior (31 wears)
    3. M7 by Yves Saint Laurent (27 wears)
    4. Oud Imperial (black) by Perris Monte Carlo (22 wears)
    5. Russian Tea Ritual by Masque (20 wears)
    6. Fate Man by Amouage (19 wears)

    Tuscan Leather is by far the most amazing smelling leather based fragrance ever made!!

    I haven't smelled them all but my favorites are Cuiron, M, and Dior Homme Cologne.

    I also really like Poivre Samarcande, which to my nose smells more than leather than anything. I guess because it's so peppery people always talk about the pepper instead of the leather.

    Thank you, everybody! It seems clear by now that three fragrances - Tuscan Leather, Knize Ten, and Cuir de Russie - score much higher than the others, but it's still a pretty close race between those three contenders. Leather Oud and Derby follow suit at a much slower pace in 4th and 5th position. It's been very interesting to follow the voting, and the poll has yielded some surprises, as well: Only one vote for Peau d'Espagne and three for Cuir Mauresque place them both at the very bottom. I for one hadn't seen that coming - very interesting!
    Thanks, guys - and please go on voting. The poll stays open.

    I have a hard time enjoying leather fragrance. But I like leather as an ingredient in a more complicated perfume. My favorite of these "mostly leathers" are: (1) Leather Oud, (2) Or Black, (3)Kolnisch Juchten (Regence), (4) M PureD

    Soft suede scents that have a leather suede note, are "almost leather" but probably not really leather scents, these are my favorites: (1) Nuit de Sens by Louis Feraud, (2) Soivohle Leather Krem, (3) MFK Oud, (4) Dzongkha

    im going to throw one more hat into the ring- its pinaud clubman special reserve. seems like ive been tooting its horn a lot here lately. it is the best leather ive smelled yet. including bel ami and knize ten- hear me out... clubman special reserve is leather. all the others are leather and sweet or leather and rose or leather and smoke and cinnamon, or whatever. pinaud is leather. period. and it smells really really nice. thats my vote.

    Default Re: Your favorite leather?

    Royal English Leather

    Eau Sauvage Fraicheur Cuir - not the most evocative of leather, but nice.

    Axe “Music” could be a Tuscan Leather flanker, they’re that similar.

    Refined opulent, majestic and surreal is TL and the dry down is mesmerizingly addictive.

    I'm not going to vote because I haven't smelled a bunch of the choices, but I find myself drawn to Knize Ten. I'm at the very bottom of my sample. I really enjoy it, but I'll admit that my opinion may be unintentionally boosted a bit by the fact that it dates back nearly a century. Every time I wear it, I find myself getting lost in thoughts about people who may have been wearing it back in the roaring 20s. Who were they and what were they doing while wearing Knize Ten?

    Habit Rouge - but that's only because it's the only one I have.
    It is true that fish stink. It is also true that the river is
    beautiful. But the river would be beautiful despite the fish. What
    is noxious remains so.

    That is not to say that sh*t is not useful when buried in the wheat
    field. Bread made from the field tastes sweet, wine from the arbor
    sweetest. All things serve a purpose, but that is no reason to
    glorify what is abominable. A man must still watch where he walks
    and keep his sandals clean.

    I've only tried 4 as of now. Tuscan Leather, Colonia Leather, Leather Oud, and Cuir Cannage. Cuir de Russie is on its way.

    As of now, Tuscan Leather is by far my favorite.
