    Default Best patchouli with leather

    With or without tobacco.

    With or without vanilla.

    I am wondering which scents use leather and patchouli as main notes.

    Leather, patchouli and vanilla:
    Guerlain Shalimar!

    Leather, patchouli, vanilla and tobacco:
    hmm... maybe Ineke Field Notes from Paris?

    Guerlain Derby gets high marks around here. Recently treated myself to a new bottle. Yes, it is fine, fine stuff. Leather and patchouli in the very long and luxurious drydown.

    Yatagan
    Gentlemen
    Moods Uomo
    Parfum d'Habit
    Maxim's pH
    Salvador Dali pH
    VCA pH

    Thank you all for the kind replies.

    Out of this list, I have already tried:

    1740 Marquis de Sade (lots of immortelle)

    Maître Parfumeur et Gantier Parfum d'Habit (vetiver and leather)
    Aramis Aramis (floral and leather)

    Leather, patchouli and vanilla:
    Guerlain Shalimar (defies a category!!)

    Leather, patchouli, vanilla and tobacco:
    Ineke Field Notes from Paris (I get a lot more flowers in this one)

    Guerlain Derby (somehow I see this more as a chypre)

    Azuree (the sister of Aramis, a classic)

    Thank you again for the ideas. Will have to try some others on this list.

    Parfum d'Habit - a significant amount of leather

    Rien - the patchouli, although bruised, is still there

    for swap/sale:

    I truly second Givenchy Gentleman - I get a more than sufficient amount of both notes from this.

    Also, German cheapie (but near-designer quality) Marbert Homme - from the sturdy, reliable fragrance house of Marbert - combines both leather and patchouli with a slight suggestion of (mainly dark, almost Goth) florals, also barbershop-style, talcum-like powderiness and even a hint of almost "Guerlinade" like gourmand notes (mainly a dark vanilla accord), with a bit of orange (also a slightly neroli-based), fougere and herbal notes. If a dark powerhouse, but also slightly green, partly gourmand, leathery patchouli exists, Marbert Homme might qualify.

    +1. This is my favorite Patchouli/Leather mix, love the minty/menthol note that transcends it.
