    Default Fellas.. Tuscan leather or Leather hombre?

    Trying to decide between the two. Also looking for something leathery vanilla Tabaccoish..? I was thinking 18.21 Tabaccoish vanilla if any one here has used it?

    If you're interested in vanilla and leather possibly with some animalic dirtiness, then I would also suggest you consider Initio Absolute Aphrodisiac. It's very nice.

    TF Tuscan Leather and Ombre Leather are pretty similar, with Tuscan Leather being much stronger. Also Ombre Leather 18 is much cheaper for the same scent as Ombre Leather 16

    I prefer Tuscan Leather, but Ombré Leather is a worthy substitute and in the sample ball park.

    Get free samples or decants of both and wear them for a few days, one on each wrist. You’ll find your answer.

    I believe some Neiman Marcus stores carry Initio, so you might check there.

    I think Ombre Leather is a better-crafted fragrance than Tuscan Leather (that it's now more affordably priced is just a bonus), but it honestly depends on what you're looking for. Tuscan Leather is more aggressively masculine.

    Which of the Tom Ford last longer? Better performance? Or are they about the same?

    These are both powerful fragrances. Tuscan Leather is a bit punchier, just because of how the notes are balanced.

    Ombre Leather lasts a *very* long time on my skin. It frequently remains detectable on my skin after showers.

    I think TL is a little more daring, which makes Ombre Leather more wearable. OL is smoother, more polished and better blended and balanced, and less expensive. But I like TL's raspberry note and it's "in your face" personality. But I wear it about twice a year.

    A lot of it should come down to whether or not you want that raspberry note or not. I've been think of selling my bottle of TL recently, knowing Ombre Leather's out there any time I want it.

    To me they are close enough that I'd get the cheaper one, ie Ombre.

    Tuscan Leather, it is more memorable - in a good way.

    Ombre Leather is okayish.

    Also in the same ballpark and quite good - Acqua di Colonia Leather (this one is drier and sharper).

    Just popped in to Sephora and had them make me a decant. I also took two sprays to my left arm.. wow guys, this smells really good. I remember trying it a few weeks ago and writing it off as just a strip of leather. My subconscious must have held on to it because I've been craving this scent. I'm going to try and get a decant t of TL tomorrow!

    Good advice.

    They're very close in overall character, so there's not a *clear* winner, so reasonable folks can disagree on this point.

    But, as noted above, I think Ombre Leather is the superior of the two; it's a little less punchy, but it displays more refined craftsmanship. Like some of the other Tom Ford Private Blend releases, Tuscan Leather leans a bit too hard on its *big* notes to create a memorable impression without fully balancing them.

    I like Tuscan leather and ombre leather for different reasons. I don't know, I find them different. One isn't a better or stronger version of the other.

    Lol, it does- but only to those who know

    In any event, yeah- I wouldn’t wear TL to work either. But mostly because how potent it is.

    I have 18.21 Man-Made it's very sweet, very boozy tobacco. It's best worn in colder climates, as it can get very heavy/cloying in the heat, but it's the best tobacco scent I've ever tried.

    I also have La Yuqawam and find that most people can't tell the difference between it and Tuscan Leather. I think it has a little raspberry to it, in the top notes. Again, very strong stuff- 2 sprays would probably fill up an small-medium office room. It's very easy to gain olfactory fatigue while wearing this. For the price, I'll take La Yuqawam any day over the Tom Ford.

    I'm going to have to disagree with you on this one. But not by much. So far TL is more interesting, but that cocaine note is VERY noticeable, I don't want to start getting drug tested at work.. where as Ombre (I just realized I spelled it Hombre in the title) smells like MAN. I like them both, but for the intended use, I'm leaning to LO.
