    Post Best leather fragrance?

    Which are your favorite fragrances taking into account that leather is one of the main notes?

    For me:

    • Cuir Ottoman - Parfum d'Empire
    • Cuirs - Carner
    • Fahrenheit Parfum - Christian Dior
    • Oud Ispahan - Christian Dior
    • Tuscan Leather Tom Ford

    There are so many excellent ones I own, but one I currently enjoy is Cuir Curcuma

    I've never considered Fahrenheit Le Parfum as a leather fragrance - but I love it, too!

    What about Dior Homme Le Parfum? It has a little bit of leather, too.
    And of course Valentino Uomo Intense?

    And I'll add Parfums de Marly Godolphin and - that may surprise some people - Carolina Herrera CH Men as it's one of the most mass-pleasing leather scents out there.

    Interesting. Never thought this to be a leather scent! Cuir fetiche by mpg is a lovely soft leather chypre though.

    Memo paris makes some good ones. I love me some french leather in the cooler months.

    Right now none. I have yet to smell a leather fragrance that I like. I haven’t smelled a ton but the 3-4 I have smelled weren’t good.

    Classic leathers (along the lines of Chanel Cuir de Russie, or Knize Ten) can be challenging for me to actually wear, much as I appreciate them from afar as great compositions. So, given that, leathers that I personally really like would include

    Hermes Bel Ami / Bel Ami Vetiver
    Hermes Equipage
    Hermes Agar Ebene
    Dior Leather Oud
    Dior Fahrenheit (insofar as it dries down to a leather accord)
    Aramis

    Like pelle above, I get a distinct leather effect from Oud Wood Intense and really like the stuff.

    I used to own TF Ombre Leather 16 and Acqua di Parma Colonia Leather, but in the end both of those are a bit too literal for me.

    I finally tried Tauer Lonestar Memories on skin the other night and enjoyed it, but it veered into that aforementioned "classic leather" category that I'm still not sure of for myself. Beautiful stuff though.

    Default Best leather fragrance?

    For me, hands and feet above the rest is Knize Ten.

    Then you have Bel Ami - arguably vintage preferred over the current stuff.

    Few months ago I may have put the Hermes above the Knize. But now I’m convinced the Knize is just better for it’s pure imagination - these guys innovated long ago before perfumery was even an established art. And they paired the flowers and just the right amount of powder with the leather in an irresistible way.

    Behind that is either Polo RL green and/or Quorum. I know these have a blend of tobacco in them but they just blend artemisia with tobacco and leather in such a way that these scents are unmissable.

    Honourable mention goes to vintage Aramis as well for being so simple and yet so versatile. And it too has withstood the test of time.

    Besides Knize Ten I am in love with Roi Sans Equipage from Henry Jacques. Another great winter fragrance with leather is Papillon Anubis.

    I'd have to go with Gucci Guilty Absolute.

    I'd also agree that Polo has a great leather scent that is more detectable in the drydown. Same with Fahrenheit, Michael, and Michael Kors.

    Leather focused,

    Gucci Guilty Absolute
    Ombre Leather
    Leather Oud
    Tuscan Leather
    Dior Homme Parfum
    La Yuqawam
    Dark Rebel Rider


    I don't consider Fahrenheit Parfum or original super leathery or they would jump to the top as I love them.
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.
