    I would think Aramis might fit the bill well to

    Not exactly modern - but excellent to me and smooth leather. And what cowboy wears modern scents?? A "Dude" might wear Le Male - but not a real cowboy

    I've never been able to make that Lonestar Memories connection to this genre—even though the narrative is explicitly written into the scent, I get nothing even remotely Western. Then again, it's a scent that I simply dislike, so I might be just wrinkling my nose at every aspect of it—narrative included.

    I'd also suggest Sova, but even that's more nostalgic americana / farmland than Wild West. Sova, to me, is like getting hammered on whisky while in a barn.

    I'd like to warmly thank all of you who've contributed to this!

    In the end i did order samples of Lonestar Memories and Moonshine.
    I was trying to get my little mittens on sample of Vintage Leather, but West Third only ships to USA:
    I was also tempted to blind buy El Paso but dropped it in the basis or houses origin - having already chosen one European house.

    So for now I'll wait for the two samples to arrive and see if either of those would feel suitable.
    Failing that I'll 'haps try to sample Slumberhouse Jeke/Sova and/or D.S. & Durga Cowboy Grass.

    The instant I read your thread title I thought of Tuscan Leather. A previous poster suggested it smells too clean for a cowboy but I think it comes across as somewhat raw. I like to wear it on weekends with a leather jacket and a funky leather hobo bag I own. Sample it and see what you think.

    Vintage Chaps is the obvious choice. Les Copains Homme is worth considering but hard to find. Then there's vintage Cabochard...

    I have both of the samples you chose, and as I said before I think the Moonshine will fit the bill - the notes alone scream cowboy/old west. I'm interested to hear your thoughts on these, so please do come back and share!

    I know this is late, but here's one that everybody isn't wearing: DUSK by Herban Cowboy.
    According to Vegan Essentials, "The first cologne that has been certified organic, this masculine scent has notes of sandalwood and forest aromas to make a unique cruelty-free fragrance": the aftershave has notes of Carrot, Cucumber & Collagen.
    Just because a fragrance is expensive, doesn’t necessarily make it smell better than a cheaper one.

I'd say LM is top notch stuff, but that's an understatement.

    Ha, I think these were $30 at Whole Foods, but I found them on sale somewhere else for $5 each. Actually, I liked it at first, but quickly got tired of that strong carrot note.

    I would suggest lone star memories but like other's have suggested it's kinda hard to wear.. Sooo for a great genuine leather scent i would suggest tuscan leather. Also Chergui by serge lutens.. it has this unique hay note that just makes me think of being in a stable or barn.

    So, my Lonestar Memories sample arrived yesterday.

    Bible and sword, but this is the real thing!

    Rubber duck about to put the hammer down, cowboy in a Coupe DeVille, duelie diesel with a horse trailer in tow, Eric Spoto in Brooks Brothers suit + Stetson and Lucchese boots, Clint Eastwood getting really pissed off in Unforgiven and ditching his puny shotgun for Nock-gun, black powder, leather, tar, Bull Durham, Marlboro man, bourbon and all kinds of western things with python skinned Texas Belts powerlifting belt on top.

    So, the real McCoy indeed and a bulls eye on the serious side of things. This scent does not have a single drop of humor or smile in it.

    The thing now is, am I man enough to pull this off or will it break my balls like a tornado tears down a shanty town?

    Can't wait the Moonsihne sample to arrive

    I agree it has cowboy written all over it.... it's just hard for me to find the right time to wear it, personally. Others will have no problems. I do spray in my truck occasionally to freshen up the new leather smell though

    LOL. Spray it on something, a piece of paper, or cloth, put it away in a drawer, and come back to it the next day or even two days later. Take a sniff. You may be surprised by what you smell. ;-)

    I agree, it's a bit overpowering at first, you just have to get past that opening to really appreciate its beauty. If you really dislike LO like I did when it first came out, I found that coming back to it the next day when it's way toned down can open up your eyes to what this one really smells like after getting some time to breathe. No horse stables anymore, just sheer beauty.
