    Ombre all day, its stupendously versatile, smells great, performs well and is the ultimate layering fragrance.

    Neither.

    Get Acqua di Parma Colonia Leather or Tuscan Leather instead, I find those to be much better.

    I had Ombre Leather but sold it, and never miss it.

    Godolphin. It's more interesting than Ombre Leather, which I find highly overrated.

    Neither would be my first choice for a leather, though.

    I prefer Godolphin. It’s a fruitier Tuscan Leather. Ombré Leather is not in the same league in my opinion.

    I don't have a bad word to say about it. One of thw most coherent scents TF has produced in recent years.

    I can't weigh in on the comparison here, but I think OL is justly celebrated.

    Consider BOIS 1920 Oro.
    I find it to be the best suederal leather out there. Complex without being overbearing.

    Of the two I prefer Ombre Leather, although my favorite in this style of leather fragrance is Clive Christian C for Men.

    Ombre Leather for me as well. Much smoother and more versatile. I also just prefer it over Godolphin in terms of scent character.

    I don't own either one, but have sampled both of them.

    Of the two, I preferred Ombre Leather, as it simply smells better.

    I don't think I've been overly impressed by any Parfums de Marly scents...certainly not enough to buy one.

    Godolphin smells better to me.

    Between those two, Ombre Leather, although I would suggest you try, if you haven't yet, Rasasi La Yuqawam, it's half the price and has outstanding quality and performance.

    I have compared them several times and would slightly prefer Godolphin because it's just beautiful til the end - even the faints of the base notes.
    A very refined scent and of course one of the best PdMs in regards to craftmanship.

    However I think, that Ombre Leather is much more mass appealing.
    So if you don't know them already and are going to blind-buy, then Ombre Leather would be the safer bet.

    Agreed. AdP Leather is fantastic and more versatile.
