    Default Leather/Suede + Tobacco + Musk/Vanilla/Amber?

    I was wondering if anyone knows of a perfume that fits this (admittedly very rough) description...Ideally, the leather note would be more "luxurious" than "rough."

    I have a small decant of vintage Caron Tabac Blond (which somewhat fits this description), which I ADORE, but I've been unable to find a bottle to purchase

    If you also like frankincense, then Cuir Velours by Naomi Goodsir would fit the bill. Beautiful soft leather with tobacco and amber.

    Cuir Fetiche - Gantier

    Something resembling 'vintage' Tabac Blond is gonna be hard to find though

    Tabac Aurea (I am wearing today!) is lovely. It allegedly has leather, I don't perceive it so much but it's smooth and tobacco and ambery slightly spicy but not at all rough. Very concentrated, I just wiped the nozzle on me a few hours ago and still can smell it fine when I sniff at my arm.

    I was going to suggest Golden Boy by Duetto, which ticks all your note boxes : the 'leather' is mainly Safraleine, which has a hot, safrron, tobacco profile (it also appears in ELdO's Tom of Finland, if you're familiar with that), but there's a suedey nuance (perhaps from Suederol). This sits atop a base of clean musks and vanilla.
    However, since you mentioned vintage Tabac Blond, I don't think it would be to your taste, as it has a very synthetic vibe.
    Presumably you've tried current Tabac Blond extrait ? I think it it is very good. Lacking the animalics of the vintage, but still.
