A series of bloody hatchet murders give audiences wanting a standard thriller something to keep them quiet. Some will still bemoan the languid pace, dreamlike visuals and erratic nature of the lead character. Okay, just decided what my SotD is gonna be. Guess what? Keep them coming! Golden Boy, Charles St. And not to forget the top dog, Tuscan Leather. Would love to get my nose on some of these other fragrances. Except Dior Leather Oud, you can definitely keep that one.
Great post! Bottega Veneta Eau Legere is my latest favorite leather — I like it a bit more than the original. Oooooh I have been waiting for this one!! Thanks for the leather overview! Thanks for the overview and reviews, and draw! Have none of it though, but have a decant of Duro which is awesome but sometimes a little too round, sweet, and smooth. I love layering it with Tauer Incense Extreme. Bottega Veneta is lovely too. But have not tried most of these. AbdesSalaam Attar Cuio Tartaro is probably the most intriguing to me….
I agree with Angelique— this blog is an enabler! Can I afford it? Bandit if I need to be taken seriously by people who do not know me for example a banker. Thank you! I never categorize Dzing! I do Not pick up on in-your-face animal notes, so it makes me nervous that other people do … but not nervous enough, because I wear it whenever and wherever!!
Late to the party, sorry! Bandit is my first leather, and I love it and wear it often. I also have Bottega Veneta, the body lotion is divine too. I have tried to wear Kelly Caleche but something in there gives me a whopping headache. I am new to the perfumista world but am loving it. I do love Bandit, especially the Vintage one. Want to try Tabac Blond and yes, you have added many others to my must try list.
Thank you I think? Trust me that does not happen often to me- perhaps I am only in my perfumista infancy and more is to come but it does seem to be lovely and yet has the leather- to me it is a way to sneak in the cuero leather! I like Leather Oud. M has that brutal opening to it. Knize Ten is rightly a staple. Lonestar Memories is all smoke no leather. I look forward to trying Chanel Cuir de Russie most. There are others on the to try list obviously but the Chanel is so highly regarded that I feel left out.
Leather is one of my very favorite notes! I find Guerlain Cuir Beluga also falls along those same lines of lovely ladylike suede. Thanks for the drawing and awesome post. I like leather quite a bit. Usually not the kind found on the girls side though.
I like EL Azuree from the ladies side. Thanks for the drawing. So I probably got distracted on ebay or something…. I second Chambre Noire mentioned above. Someone mentioned Lanvin Scandal in the vintage leather category. I second that. And Jolie Madame vintage version and Diorling, mmm.
What a great list. I would love to sample these and thanks for the generous draw! I LOVE leathers! I own a giant bottle of the modern version, and a micro-mini of the vintage — and shamefully, perhaps, I like the modern more. The modern is very sharp, with loads of leather and pipe tobacco. I need to find my perfect leather. Bandit may be a bit too green for me, too. Thanks so much for the useful guide! I found out about Dzing!
I may have even shared the story here a couple years ago when I was a really new newbie. I used to be one of those people who would avoid leather scents like the plague but, it was more the idea of them not the scent. Thanks for another wonderful guide! Cuir de Lancome is possibly my favourite scent period. So gorgeous. I really need to try the parfum version of Cuir de Russie because, while the edt is really beautiful, I find it a bit too clean, austere and sharp.
The parfum seems like it could be perfect. I would also love to get my hands on a few drops of vintage Tabac Blond to try some day. Thanks for all the sampling ideas, and the wonderful draw! Anxiously awaiting my tax refund so I can go perfume shopping. I think Lonestar Memories is my favorite leather scent. Patchouli 24 by Le Labo is also leathery! I dont know much about leather in perfumes so thanks for this comprehensive list.
I love Bottega Veneta and Chambre Noir. Great Post!!!! Hmmmm, love them all! Still looking for the one that stays raunchy on my skin, which tends to sweeten things up. Thanks for the draw! From there I went straight to Bandit, with no looking back! Daim Blond is my next FB. Oh I do like alittle bit of leather in my scent! Leather scents got me interested in perfume…now I have a small amount of some of the one mentioned above in vintage, but never feel like it is the right time to wear them!
But yet again after reading one of the reviews I have a whole new list for samples. Lasts forever on your skin, unlike some of the natural perfumes, too. Giorgio Armani. Jo Malone London. Maison Margiela Paris. Ralph Lauren. Tom Ford. Dream Fighter. One Room Disco. Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. Yasutaka Nakata. Girls' Generation. Hatsune Miku. Kero Kero Bonito. Snail's House. Anime Openings, Endings, Insert Songs. New from Japan.
Top J-Pop. Japan Cherry Blossom. Anime Winter Best J-Pop.The wonderfully ornate title of Francesco Barilli’s The Perfume Of The Lady In Black refers to something simultaneously specific—an image of the heroine’s late mother, reflected in her bedroom mirror—and intangible, a scent that’s pungent and evocative, but nonetheless a vapor. That’s the film in a nutshell: Hard to comprehend in its particulars—what’s real and what unreal, how.
