    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.

    Here are some good ones, IMO:

    Leather and patcholi:
    Maître Parfumeur et Gantier Parfum d'Habit
    Hermès Bel Ami
    Aramis Aramis
    Santa Maria Novella Nostalgia

    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.

    For my tastes, the following impart good and prominent patchouli / leather during development:
    Polo
    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.

    Its questionable I know but I would like to mention Patchouli 24 and Amouage Dia man.

    Mazzolari Lui is indeed a very nice leather patch combo
