    OL without a doubt. Easier to wear, elegant, while to me, TL results cloying and a bit I-am-an-unsecure-bro-and-need-to-be-seen kind of frags (aka vulgar).
    I think you can find several threads that compare these two, as it seems to be a recurrent comparison.

    Tuscan Leather for me. It's a bit more rock n roll in a Lemmy kind of way. Also, I sniff an odd hairspray note in some of the Signature stuff including OL and Beau de Jour.

    I've got both, but I prefer Ombre leather as its milder & more comfy to pull off at the office. The projections are mental too & it stays on for my whole shift.

    I had TUSCAN LEATHER and sold it last year. I just found it too relentless- which is a positive for some people.

    OMBRE LEATHER has a slightly different note profile and while still strong, not as much of a hammer as TUSCAN LEATHER to me.
    Between Covid and retirement I don't get out much. But when I do, I smell real good.

    I've said it before that I don't like the way TF has set either of these up. I detect more norlimbanol or cashmeran in these than a classic, traditional leather profile.

    Having said that, Ombre stands out further ahead for me. I still find it very strong. But the cardamom and jasmine notes in the heart really caught my attention when it first came out. If only that horrible base was toned down or the heart was made to last longer.

    Ombre for me. Tuscan smells great and is very well made but the raspberry is a big negative for me.

    I think Tuscan Leather is the worst PB fragrance from Tom Ford.

    Can't really decide. I voted TL since I own it and it was "the original". Could easily have been the opposite due to wearability. I don't find TL that rough or beastly as some does.

    Own both, have always found TL challenging to wear. OL overcomes this and gets my vote.

    Two fine leather scents, but I give the edge to Tuscan Leather.

    Not a fan of either but have tried both and found the former more tolerable.

    Ombré Leather. Much more wearable and, to me, also smells nicer...

    My choice is Tuscan Leather, because there is something in Ombre that causes me to go anosmic to it within the first 15 minutes of wearing it.

    I'm indifferent when it comes to these two but Ombre Leather is a bit more versatile.
