    Mona di Orio Vanille think of an orange creamsicle with rum in it. So basically vanilla, orange and rum. Good juice wish I had of purchased a bottle with the price was a humble $170 rather than the ridiculously $230.

    I haven't detected ANY leather in my Lubin EDT. It's just an insanely sexy, spicy rum fragrance with a longevity and projection well above what I thought myself. A friend smelled it on me from three meters away (7 feet?), and detected it on me after a good night of sleep (I came in to work at 2145, he smelled it and commented on the greatness of it, and commented again the next day at 0700). I applied it at ... oh ... 2030 or so. So longevity and projection is great on me, at least, even though I can't detect it for very long.

    All in all, try it out. It's damn good, and as said - leather? Not in my book.

    It's great to see other peoples opinions on a fragrance. I'm going to check both concentrations out just in case. Thanks bro!

    Idole EDT - it's not a leather scent at all, spiced boozy rum from where I'm sitting.

    Haven't tried the EDP.

    The reviews I've seen on it has been quite different from yours here. Your description makes me want to get a full bottle blindly.. I have to sample it! Thanks!

    If you like vetiver, you might like Helan's Vetiver & Rum. I find the combination super comforting and cheerful.

    If you don't mind spices with your rum, you might like Pinaud's Virgin Island Bay Rum. This stuff is ridiculously good and dirt cheap (about $1/ounce).

    Straight to Heaven is all rum and probably in my top three scents. Absolutely love it. A real feel good (feel drunk) fragrance.

    We have L'Artisan Parfumeurs Havana Vanille ( or the boring name Vanille Absolue ) and Frapin 1270, which I think the very great rum scents. Another rum, that I really love now, is Majda Bakkali Fusion Sacree for Him. Maybe the best rum that I've ever tasted. You MUST try FS if you want a better and special rum scent.

    If you are not averse to chocolate, Guerlain Gourmand Coquin might be worth a try.

    Indeed, it is like a jazz lounge in a bottle! It gives the perfect cloud around the wearer all day.

    The whole Guerlain Homme line consists of rum scents.
    Try Set Sails South Seas too.

    1. Straight to Heaven (some patchouli, but this really is a must-try)
    2. Lubin Idole EDP (there is a little incense & leather, but it is so dominated by rum you should try it)
    3. Virgin Island Water
    4. Guerlain Homme Intense

    Paul Smith London smells like coconut rum to me. Delightful and rich scent.
    Top notes of... sweat, gasoline, motor oil; a heart of deer musk and gunpowder, resting on a base of sex and testosterone... Mandom.

    Straight to Heaven by Kilian is amazing. Patchouli isn't overpowering at all, very clean.
