Scent of the day - Dior Leather Oud

Leather Oud is one of those perfumes that never fails to stir my emotions. It's a delight every time. How often does that happen with perfume? In my experience, quite seldom.

I've reviewed Leather Oud in detail before, here, but suffice to say that it is a wonderful fragrance. It still strikes me as being ever so slightly naughty, with a hint of skank that reminds me a little of Absolue Poir Le Soir. When I say skank, it really reminds me of the smell of hot skin, that may have sweated a little and dried. Not body odour, but more like clean hot skin after love-making. There, I said it...

I haven't tried a lot else from the Dior exclusive line, but for me, Leather Oud is a winner. A must try in my opinion.


  1. Hi, I'm a new follower ~ looking for a great perfume blog, and I've found it! ♥♥

  2. I have a sample of Leather Oud but haven't tried it yet on skin. I should probably do it tomorrow and then read your review. But I should say now that you gave it a quite compelling recommendation.

  3. Anne, thank you, that is very kind!

  4. Undina, I'd be interested to know what you think of it. It is one of my favourites, no doubt. Thanks for commenting.

    1. I tested Leather Oud a couple of times. I think it's a very good perfume, I like the scent itself but it is too masculine for me. I will wear it once or twice more (while my sample lasts) but probably I do not need more.

  5. Undina, glad you liked it, even if you found it a bit too masculine. I just find it quite sexy to be honest. I have a similar feeling from MFK's Absolue Pour Le Soir.
