In this month’s edition of The Perfume Magazine I chose to write about leather. I decided on this theme following the release of 2012 perfume trend predictions by Bell Flavours and Fragrances which includes leather. Their top 10 is:
1. Ginger Orchid
2. Orange Flower
3. Tart Guava
4. Gold Amber
5. Green Pear
6. Spicy Bergamot
7. Root Beer
8. Pink Pepper
10. Tomato Leaf
Having written about leather on What Men Should Smell Like, I decided to explore the theme a little further.

On my leather post last year, D.K suggested I try Knize Ten. It’s unavailable here in Australia but I will try to find a bottle the next time I am traveling. My current obsession is Chanel’s Cuir de Russie. I was considering a vintage bottle. A recent Ebay auction I was watching went for US$691 for an unopened bottle, produced circa the 1940s. So it seems I am not the only fan. The Les Exclusifs relaunch is still by no means a consolation, which I think will be a souvenir during my next trip to Europe later in the year.
If you have any preferred leather scents, let me know!
