    It seems you love big leathers. I do too.

    In your list, I'd go for Tom of Finland, which is not a big leather, it's a supersmooth one. Saffrony, lemony, smooth, for when you don't feel too aggressive (as when wearing Rien). Alternatively, the warm tobaccoes of FT (Acqua di Cuba is striking, but because too honeyed).

    Taking into account that I haven't tried any of those; I would be more inclined to go for Fumerie Turque or Tom of Finland.

    Definitely Fumerie Turque. If you would like a real kick-ass leather SMN Peau d'Espagne
    I've just been on Trip Advisor. There was no information on a cut knee.

    You have great taste!

    Since you like Rien & Lonestar Memories, I think you'd love Fumerie Turque.

    And because you like Bandit, you'd love Peau d'Espagne. But watch out with this one. It is nuclear strength strong. Trust me.
