    Not entirely fitting the bill but I will suggest trying it nontheless: Opus XI by Amouage.

    Great suggestions already (I like in particular Lonestar Memories). Adding a couple more: No perfume by The Zoo and Beaufort 1805 Tonnerre.

    It's only challenging if you aren't use to the rubbery leather smell. I think it's amazing and perfect but the first time I ever smelled it, I didn't know what to think, lol.

    I'll second Birch Tar & Russian Leather since I've been testing it recently. The dry down is fairly similar to Lonestar Memories, which I already own and enjoy in cooler weather, but I think BT&RL does the smoky incense better. The opening is quite potent, so give it a few minutes if you try it.

    Hard to find, but Amouage Tribute attars fit your description to a tee--both red and black boxes, but I found black stronger. I was fortunate to try it in a sample pass.

    Agree with this. LM is not just one of my favorite smoky leathers, its one of my favorite fragrances period. If you like smoke tarry burnt leather, and you haven't smelled LM, you are doing your nose a disservice. Just wish it was a *little* easier to wear in hot weather, cause I miss wearing it in the summer.

    In the not too distant future there may be a new King of Tarry. Burnt. Leather.

    Crude Birch Tar! Beaver tail oil! Too potent (dangerous?) to wear on skin... From the Areej le Dore thread:

    That sounds pretty great! But why, er, would you want to scent your clothes instead of your skin? And what type of clothes would be suitable for this? My su misra suits? My parkas? The seal fur kamik or my fisher and beaver fur mitts?My balaclava collection for when it's -40C outside?

    A little searching on Basenotes points to the crude birch tar being problematic in fragrances. Found a link to an Essential Oil Safety book. Seems unrectified birch oil may be carcinogenic and shouldn't be used in perfumes. Safe(r) on clothes? The ALD thread gives some ALD fan views on the topic. This new product might be a killer scent in more ways than one.

    There is an acrid, burnt, medicinal, Band-Aid-esque smell to it. It's very love/hate - which you have to sort of admire because it was GUCCI who released this. Please post your thoughts once you try it. I have a good friend of mine and it's his signature scent (he isn't a fragrance enthusiast) - he instantly loved it when I showed it to him and it smells great on him.

    Are you attributing those notes to GGA or OWI (my post was in response to a comment that OWI was "challenging"), or both? I do have a bottle of OWI (and am wearing it now), and find the bactine-ish notes to be pretty subdued. This for me is in contrast to Lalique Encre Noire, which leans toward the unpleasant end of that particular 'medicinal' spectrum.

    I don't find those all that leathery tbh.

    Try Suede by Rook. It's the ultimate in this category.

    Comme des Garcons Tar. tar, smokes and leather. (+aldehydes)
    Black Gemstone. Tar, oud, smokes, (+tons of black notes!)
    Comme des Garcons Black. smokes, leather, no tar but the loveliest.
    also if you want a rougher Oud Wood Intense you should try Tom Ford London before any of these.

    and don't try GGA or Rien if you found Encre Noir too antiseptic. Cheers!

    It sounds exciting! Now I'm just going to have to source it out.

    Too late! I get the feeling that this one will be trying for me. And thanks to strifeknot, I've sourced out a sample of Lonestar Memories -- can't wait to try that.

    Nope, not thinking of Oud Wood whatsoever. OWI is an animalic woody to my nose. There's SOME leather but by no means is it a leather-dominant fragrance, per se. Likewise I find zero leather in Encre Noire, hence my slight confusion with the topic.

    I'll reiterate that Suede by Rook Perfumes fits the exact bill.

    Some of the suggestions are quite surprising, I think they might be too soft and subtle but then again my nose isn't the best. Many of the suggestions really don't seem to fit OP's request much at all. It always amazes me how subjective fragrances are. While I love really tarry, burnt and leathery fragrances I do find them difficult to wear. A lot of the suggestions seem to have a bit of smoke or smooth leather but many of them are rather subtle. My unrefined nose needs much bigger hits:

    Another vote goes to OP trying CDG Black and I'll add Slumberhouse Jeke, it's pretty much exactly what you describe but be careful, it's a potent one, one full spray was too much for me! Op have you tried Amouage's excellent Epic Man? It does give off many of the tar, burnt and leather aspects but adds spice and incense to the mix.
