This spring, leave the floral aromas behind, and splash on a leather scent. Not too sweet, not too bitter, these understated fragrances layer well with spicier notes—because flowers are for gardens.More
Name: Tuscan Leather by Tom Ford
The Notes: Saffron, thyme, jasmine, frankincense, gum olibanum, suede, wood, and leather
How to Wear: Tuscan Leather is the perfect companion to your vintage leather jacket, which you'll most likely tote around for chillier evenings this month. Focus the scent on your neck and temples, so when someone goes in for the hug (or, ahem, something else), they'll find your scent totally aligned with your tough, yet laid-back aesthetic.

Name: Kimonanthe by Diptyque
The Notes: Japanese incense, osmanthus blossoms, cloves, leather, camphor, and sandalwood
How to Wear: You can literally spice up your weekend hangs with a few spritzes of Diptyque's airy and distinct leather scent. If you're keeping things live from Saturday brunch to a midnight house kickback, pump a few sprays into your hair to allow the scent to linger throughout the long, adventurous day.
