    Default Tuscan Leather appreciation thread.

    Oh. My. God.

    From the first spray i fell in love with this scent. It was like my nose immediately reached orgasm.

    The subtle raspberry is divine... I also get a very small whiff of... I'm not really sure but maybe suede? But all of this is overshadowed by the fucking BRILLIANT leather.

    It's not a 'new car smell' leather.
    It's not a leather jacket leather.
    It's not leather shoes leather.
    It's smooth, intense and beautiful... If the desire for sex took on the scent of leather then this is what it would smell like.

    It projects in everyone's face. It's loud and aggressive - but that's only a compliment for the fragrance. This is a fragrance that fucking knows how good it is and is doing everyone a favour by invading their noses. This leather is like a little friend sitting on your shoulder making everyone say nice things to you. It's a leather angel on your shoulder.

    After this journey it softens into this silky smooth, classy, gorgeous amber and something else. Perhaps someone can enlighten me on what else i'm smelling here, but i like it. I love it.

    This is the fragrance that has made perfume an addiction for me. Forever from now on, a new primal urge has been introduced into my DNA. Much like as a man i have a primal urge to spread my seed, i now have a primal, carnal urge to smell every fucking fragrance in the world.

    TL;DR This smell is fucking fantastic.

    Great fragrance indeed. The first private blend I had the pleasure to sample when it was released. Perfect for the fall and winter months.

    yes, I'd have to agree. One of my favourites as well. It layers fairly well with other fragrances too.

    The only downer is if you hit a piece of clothing with it accidentally, it's going to smell like that for a while.

    Hey, thanks mate!
    In so many words I too share your passion for this fragrance. It's something I wear both when I want to smell incredible and LOUD and just lounging around at home on the couch.

    However more importantly any fragrance that shoots the frag addiction in your veins is a keeper, and how fitting that the frag now associated with cocaine was the one to do this too you.

    classic!

    I prefer Tuscan Leather to Tobacco Vanille. Its my SOTD (layered with TV). It also layers excellently with the A word..

    Seriously, though, take a look at the code of conduct so that we don't have to wash your mouth out with Neroli Portofino.

    This exactly. Got it on a shirt, and after 2 washes there is still a faint smell of TL....man talk about longevity. The paper I sprayed a sample on at Sacs a month ago still has the scent. Too bad this is not one that I like much.

    Mine is fantastic AND also quite attentive and emails me when things are on sale or if new stuff comes in. I tend to buy my juice from authorized dealers and buy it new, and my SA knows that while I am picky - i buy what i like and don't mess around. Using the same SA also builds up a good relationship where she already knows the stuff I like and can refer me to other things - but half the time I am educating HER on fragrance. She's a late 30's woman though -- but just smoking hot.

    I'm not a fan either It's one of the most belligerent perfumes on the market. Compared to stuff like Cuir Ottoman, Blackbird, Cuir de Russie, Leather Oud, Knize Ten, Sarrasins, M, Jeke etc., it's grim. It has a place in the fragrance world and very specific target audience, but when situated in context with other leather fragrances, much of its true structure comes to light -- it's just a massive whack of a suederal. Each to their own and all that!

    I like to find ways to hide it in my car(air vents, door pockets, under seats, etc) so when the honeydips get in, first thing they smell is cocaine. They know what's up.

    Tuscan Leather is a masterpiece, by far the best of the Private Collection. I own a couple others but Tuscan Leather is the only one that will forever be in my collection.

    I was referring to the notion that it's a big, attention-getting scent. It reminds me a lot of Bond type scents in that the volume is cranked up really high to make sure it's really noticeable. I find Tobacco Vanille to be the same, but I guess that could really be said for any high volume scent. I like Rien myself, which is just as loud (if not more so), but Rien doesn't strike me as a leather per se -- it's more of an irreverent pleather kind of thing! This one tends to come across as more serious in that respect.

    It's definitely one for the such longevity and much projection fans.
