    Tuscan Leather was the first to use ithat particular aromachemical for leather, so it's notable in that regard, as well as being one of the brand-making releases for Tom Ford.

    Do I like it? Not particularly. I think Ombré Leather 16 was a significant improvement, but it will always be the flanker, not the original.

    It does for me, because it was the fragrance that started me down this road of fragrance addiction. Literally, the first expensive, non-designer fragrance I ever bought, and I had always been a "signature scent" kind of guy, with just like 2 or 3 frags in seasonal rotation. Tuscan Leather really opened my eyes to the wonderful world of fragrance.

    I agree with the majority here: a good (and once special) take on leather fragrances with (once) great performance but not a masterpiece or legend.

    Wow. Legendary? I know it's highly regarded but never expected anyone to think legendary. I don't know. It smells great but I don't like that raspberry note at all.

    Thats funny you say that, I have been seeking out vintage 2011/2012 juice specifically because the raspberry note is more pronounced! lol I love it and think it balances out the composition better when it is a little bit stronger

    I agree with you about the raspberry note. It makes the whole experience more interesting. I'd love to smell some vintage some day.

    Agreed.
    And many that came after Tuscan Leather, including clones form notable niche companies are sometimes better in presentation.

    Yes it does. I’ve had many fragrance SAs that work for other companies tell me this is the scent they wear. It’s epic

    I agree. I get that it’s a strange and distinctive accord, but I love me that smoked raspberry, and it’s why I still enjoy TL more than the copies that focus on the leather aromachemical it pioneered.

    Bought an 8.4oz flacon when it first came out back in 2007/2008 and the raspberry note was prominent. I never really go the ashtray vibe some people describe; rather, it dried down to a buttery leather that was really quite nice. Haven't tried it in ages (newer versions), but considering imitation is the highest form of flattery, I'd say it's a legend.

    Do you still have any left from this flacon?

    No, I ended up selling it several years ago. Wish I still had it, but need to get my nose on the current formulation to see how it measures up.

    I own and love the current formulation. Haven't tried the older stuff, but I imagine it is much better.

    Legendary, yes. Deserved, yes. It may not be the most original fragrance today, but the fact that so many fragrances have been created in its shadow is just proof of its influence. After years without it, I recently picked up a bottle of the current formulation. I still love it and am happy it is back in my collection.

    There are so many fake paintings in the art world. It doesn't detract from the original. Even if the fake is almost identical to the original. The genius is in the original idea and it's execution. Many have come since copying Elvis, the Beetles, the assembly line, and the iPhone. Being copied proves you did something to be legendary. Being the original mind behind something that takes that giant leap forward is what makes you great. Being a good cover band and just copying others does not - nor does it diminish the one you are copying.
    More perfumers have copied TL and Aventus than just about anything!! Give it up, gentlemen. It's legendary!! HALL OF FAME!
