    Knize 10
    Fahrenheit
    Tuscan Leather

    Took me literally forever to finally pick up leather in Fahrenheit. It's definitely there, just so well blended.

    "Best" is certainly subjective.

    Equipage may be it for me.
    Its refined, interesting and multi faceted.
    After about 10 wears I got the warm pipe whiffs before I headed out to the office..
    I had a moment, I knew it would be a good day. Special stuff.

    Loads of excellent recommendations. I would also add Armani Cuir Majeste and Clive Christian C to the mix.

    The vintage was called Cuir de Russie. Cuir came repackaged and more honey was added so it was a sweeter version. Both are great imo but I reckon the Russie version will be pretty hard to find now.

    Resurrecting a Lazarus post....

    What if I added a twist to the OP’s question? Which of these would you recommend if you were buying to share with a woman?

    I loved the soft leather note in Cuir Beluga by Guerlain and Cuir by Lancôme. Rick liked them both on me and happily wears the Lancôme himself. He asked if I could explore more shared leather scents so our next purchase was Russian Leather by Memo. I like it a great deal but it works much better on Rick’s skin than mine. Neither of us care about the traditional masculine/feminine labels, but we find we generally agree on scents that wobble around in that shared space. Both TF Leather Ombré and Oriental Leather (Memo) caught my eye.

    Thoughts and suggestions?

    I think you're probably an okay guy, but I can never trust anyone's opinion who puts not one but two Rojas as a top of the list fragrance lol.

    Have you tried White Suede? A bit on the soft side with musk and florals.

    Those are all great choices in vintage formulation. I would add Derby and Gucci Pour Homme.

    PUREDISTANCE M
    PIGUET BANDIT
    CREED ROYAL ENGLISH LEATHER
    TOM FORD OMBRE LEATHER
    CHANEL ANTAEUS

    These are sort of considered "leather" scents but I just find them very well blended and not dominant leather:

    In terms of prominent leather fragrances, my vote goes to Colonia Leather or Ombre Leather. Godolphin is a distant third because of poor performance.

    Godolphin has poor performance?! One of my problems with Godolphin is how cloying it is (even with PdM sprayers being one of the stingiest around!) it's also so sticky and longlasting that it outlasts my bath to bath routine.

    Parfum d'Empire Cuir Ottoman

    A super realistic leather fragrance.

    Of course, the leather smells different - my leather jacket, my hand purse, my wallet, my briefcase, doesn't all smell exactly the same.
    But, for a couple of hours, Cuir Ottoman it's strangely close to the smell of my briefcase, odor and texture.

    Very realistic, but not for me.

    Don't like tarry and rubbery type of leather.
    I much prefer "impressionistic" type of leather, not very accurate, with blurred edges, fluffy, with earthy patchouli, more like suede-leather:



    Jul et Mad Amour de Palazzo

    It's also very good for patchouli lovers.
    Not too sweet.

    Love it!
