Now even the deer have to go down with it
Pal Zileri was not known to me until then, obviously he is a fashion designer with higher prices and so the way to an own perfume collection was not far away. In fact, there are several creations of an olfactory nature from his house, I was allowed to test Cuoio myself and then purchase it. This of course because - o wonder - it is a leather scent.
First we start with the unspeakable triad of saffron, thyme, raspberry so that I simply hoped for the fallow deer skin when reading. Surprisingly, however, the triad is quite successful; saffron acts rather discreetly, does not overlay everything, is not penetrating. The raspberry is kept green, a little bit sour-unripe. The prelude is therefore actually slightly pungent green, which fades quickly.
Now the fallow deerskin turns on immediately, which you can only dismiss as a harsh undertone until you realize that this is the leather. No smooth, cleanly produced leather from Italy. But from the fallow deer, which leads to the fact, similar to the animalistic taste you find when eating game, that the leather is "wilder", it smells more severe, it smells like wilderness and forest. Or just simply like dirty deer ;)
Now, after the first impression, you can't help but notice that the fragrance still smells graceful and noble in a certain way. Sure, such a proud stag is also something different than a cow munching grass with its mouth open. This animalism makes this leather special. Cuoio is then supported by a touch of incense, which makes the leather even wilder, even more wilderness. In general, fallow deer leather is rather soft and therefore reflects a subliminal elegance. In a certain way this is of course contrary to the wilderness of the fragrance, which is why I chose the example of the graceful, noble stag to illustrate this fact.
The further course is quite straight, the scent remains as it is now, which is why I shorten this part.
In order to enrich the commentary with the obligatory comparison with Tom Ford and Rasasi etc., it is virtually obligatory: no.

Nobody smells with Cuoio like with Tuscan Leather or La Yuqawam. The leather here smells wilder, the raspberry much more acidic, especially compared to the LY, and especially the saffron much more tamed. Actually, Pal Zileri has proven here that the same ingredients do not necessarily mean the same fragrance or imitation.
Sure, Cuoio is hard to get today, unlike in the past. That's why this fragrance is probably only recommended for leather enthusiasts due to the rare testing possibilities.
P.S.: he's no substitute for Tabac Blonde ;)

Tuscan leather lite thyme
Considering it's a fraction of the price this essentially does what Tuscan Leather does. They are not identical by any margin but their rudiments are. Where TL is smoky and, let's be honest, is of better quality, especially that sublime saffron note, Cuoio has a noticeable thyme note in the opening that makes it herbal though not overly so. Raspberry is the lasting note in both fragrances and both have a rich smoky drydown. TL is better, more sophisticated, but for simple value for money Cuoio does the trick. If you want TL but can't afford it, try this. It's decent.
