    Habit Rouge could also be a great option-one of the best in its category (from a personal viewpoint)

    Contains a lot of styrax and Wasser says it's the most important part of Habit Rouge, but I don't see Habit Rouge as leather. Hell of a fragrance, although it's been heavily diluted over the last fifteen years.

    Bel Ami and Cuir de Lancome are excellent.

    I also wouldn't consider Habit Rouge in this classification.

    Bel Ami in a vintage form is quite nice stuff indeed. Curiously, the modern version smells more dated to me, even as it's been "modernized".
