Dior Leather Oud, Montale Aoud Cuir d'Arabie and MPG Parfum d'Habit are the great lone rangers in the leather world.

Zoologist Rhinoceros is an interesting new entrant, excellent take on weathered, dry but luxurious leather.

Then there are Leather notes that seem to be inserted in note pyramids just to cover the rougher textures in the fragrance, and those are the leather notes that make me sad

And then there's the leather notes that are inserted into note pyramids because they want the scent to appeal to men. Those "leather" notes are especially disheartening.
