    I´ll try to explain myself regarding Kouros.
    I think that this amazing amazing fragrance has always been "fresh", even in its older formulas.
    The skank shines the clean and viceversa; growing onto something unique.
    I wear it on summer and spring.
    But that´s me.
    Best wishes!

    In days of yore, no one did leather better than Hermès.

    Eau d'Hermes
    and
    Bel Ami

    And I don't perceive Kouros as a leather at all.

    I don't perceive Kouros as leather-but sure I like it.

    Back to the theme. Restricting myself to leathers that no longer exist, the animalic Schiaparelli Shocking and the sweet/butch Jolie Madame.

    Kouros is mostly a musk to me.

    I would go with vintage Derby.

    I only really wear v Knize Ten and v Bel Ami, but all of these are good. I always forget how good v Cabochard is. I should buy a small bottle of the parfum just to smell it again.

    Might as well try some vintage Van Cleef & Arpels pour Homme while you're at it.

    So far, had great experiences with:

    - vintage Knize Ten (though liking the current version as well),

    - vintage Creed REL,

    - Eau Sauvage Fraicheur Cuir,

    - certain leathery aspects in certain vintage fragrances by Loewe, Lancetti, vintage Etro Gomma, La Martina (particularly Hombre), a few Marbert fragrances as well-particularly the more animalic, leathery tones in vintage Man and vintage Homme,

    - also vintage Derby and Bogart Furyo
