This scent has become a staple of my candle business centered around masculine scents. On its own, its more of a "new car" leather than an "old leather jacket" leather. But I find that mixing it with Fireside makes a nice, smokey leather that turns it from a synthetic scent to a more weathered, worn, seductive scent. It also mixes nicely with Sandalwood for a smooth but masculine scent. I've never tried it in soap, but one of my clients just recently promised to order a ton of soaps if I can make them with this scent... to which I said, of course!!
