    There are bunch of similar scents including Godolphin but Tuscan Leather and Acqua di Parma Colonia Leather are the best in that style - to me anyway.
    50 sprays a day keeps the doc away

    In the style, I also recommend Colonia Leather. It's drier and sharper. Sharper still, Montale Aoud Leather.

    Otherwise, there are many excellent leathers (which I prefer to the above) that go in different directions, either ambery-sweet, or musky animalic.

    Leather scents are a very diverse category because leather can smell very different depending on how it's treated. It's my understanding that Tuscan Leather was the first to use its particular aromachemical to stand in for "leather."

    My two favorite leather-dominant scents have floral accents: Tom Ford Ombré Leather and Floris Leather Oud (which isn't as dark as the name suggests; it's like sitting in a new suede armchair in a solarium full of flowers), but those are just the two where leather cuts through above all else. I love plenty of other scents where leather has a supporting role.

    I should have thought of this one! There are similarities but just a great one to have on it's own merits, IMO!

    Guerlain Cuir Intense may fit your need.

    Ombre Leather-perhaps to a certain extent (and not just due to similar naming alone) most Zara EDPs that have the word "leather" in their title, perhaps to lesser extents the one made to resemble the smoky leathery pineapple aspects of Aventus way too much and too noticeably
