Yeah, you get vanilla and leather
On this relatively new perfume I happened to come across a statement that has made me very curious. And Schwupp the Wupp, already a filling is given in order.
Now I try to write down my impression as best I can and I hope I help you with it.

The first sniff:
Right at the beginning I can hardly believe: I mean to be able to perceive a scent DNA known to me and very beloved: KayAlis Vanilla!
And as quickly as this impression was there, so quickly it faded afterwards. That was then probably a very short trip, but about which I was very happy. Unlike the cousin just mentioned, this is as pyramidal a progression as you could wish for.
I hear a slight, not burning sharpness, which lasts but only briefly, overall, the top note really does not last longer than 1 minute.

The course:
Shortly thereafter, the tobacco then makes itself felt, which is very similar to that in Tobacco Vanilla. The jasmine also joins in now, placing itself right next to the tobacco. This twosome strangely forms something that smells like oud to my nose.... but that's certainly just a trick that my senses play here and that you have to look at the fragrance world willy-nilly sometimes playfully :).
The vanilla can be recognized from the beginning, it strongly characterizes the fragrance, which makes it very attractive to me personally. By the way, I'm talking about an edible vanilla here. A vanilla like you would find in vanilla flavored yogurt or vanilla pudding. Yes, imagine you are in a factory processing vanilla beans and you are watching the pith being scraped out of the brown-black pods to be mixed into a yogurt afterwards.
But let's not forget the leather, which is very noticeable shortly after the vanilla. That vanilla and leather go well together is at least for my nose nothing new, so I was not disappointed here. Neither vanilla nor leather is in the foreground, the two share rather the main role in the fragrance.
Conclusion:
Soft creaminess is the order of the day here. What you look for in vain, is freshness. Durability and sillage are decent and for me absolutely satisfactory. Although I find that this is not an everyday fragrance, but still I can think of enough occasions to wear this fragrance.
Vanilla & Leather keeps what it promises!

Simple but good....
S T DUPONT......King of the noble lighters.
Surely yes.
They also make perfumes??
Yes! And what a ...
Vanilla Leather is a simple perfume. Not overloaded with fragrances of all kinds but really concentrated on the essential.
I can't really describe the top note. Because right from the start you can smell tobacco, vanilla and leather. These are also clearly the 3 pillars that determine the scent. And that from beginning to end. And the end then fades away gently vanilla.
The durability of the perfume is remarkable. On the skin up to 6/7 hours. On clothes even much longer.
The bottle has a very high quality appearance. Completely coated in gold colors and solid ,heavy.
The price is with 40 Euro for 100ml. a real price cracker in a positive sense.
I would say Vanilla Leather is for everyone who likes vanilla leather and subtle tobacco at this price/performance ratio a real insider tip.
I like the scent and it fits perfectly to this colder season.

Greeting Sebastian

Good snus vanilla
It opens like Lalique Le Parfum and leads to a drydown like TF Tuscan Leather. It starts with vanilla topped with refreshing spices, but it's not sticky or heavy, it's restrained and very balanced. As time passes after spraying, the yummy powdery vibe, characteristic of ST Dupont's golden bottle series, pops out. Then, while preserving the deep sweetness, it gradually emits an animalic scent, but not aggressive or flaunting.

In this piece, I get a specific image that fits in a space like a old neon bar that glows in fluorescent colors, rather than the typical oriental vanilla. And it is true that It's a really good perfume for the price. But it feels a bit too mature for my nose. The scent of tobacco, which reveals its existence from the middle, is certainly classy, ​​but it is reminiscent of grandpa's moist snus. Of course, it will appeal greatly to those who like the note like this.

I think it is a little inferior to other ones in the same house, such as Noble Wood, Royal Amber, and Oud Rose. But this evaluation is because the other ones are so great, and I'm not saying that Vanilla Leather is not that great. I honestly consider all of this house's golden bottle series to be masterpieces, include Vanilla Leather.

Oriental dreams of vanilla, tobacco and leather
[short review]
This perfume cannot be considered a sales success and much less to be known for it. However, it has a constant presence in different lists of the "best perfumes ever" in different media and it also has a special position in my preferences.
Undoubtedly, it is a high quality perfume that may be considered "niche" or of "niche like quality". It is perhaps the best offer from S.T.Dupont's private line. I blind bought this flask right after it was released. By then I already had three other perfumes of this colection, and I was delighted with all of them. Vanilla & Leather was launched with a very attractive street price (€ 40) but that value increased continuously since its edition. Its current selling price is around € 60. That fact is also a good indication of the attraction that this perfume has generated among oriental perfume lovers.
If only one note would define this fragrance, it would be vanilla. It is a very sweet perfume, but of moderate performance. Its presentation is exemplary and very attractive. The ingredients quality is well above average.
The perfume reveals a strong accord of vanilla, but also shows a strong presence of tobacco and leather. Vanilla is responsible for its dominant sweetness. It is tempered by the caramelized heat of moist tobacco and the animalic scent of luxury leather (and not of cooper leather). The aroma oscillates between the extreme of the sweet chords and the moderation imposed by the earthy and animalic chords, and all very well tied up by a pleasant balsam oil.
The remaining notes listed act in favor of this polarity also in which a bit of cinnamon, a spicy saffron and a faint floral sweetness is added to the dominant vanilla, while tobacco and leather become a little more bitter due to the action of mate tea. No woody notes whatsoever seem to participate in this potion.
At the risk of "pleasing neither Greeks nor Trojans" due to its polarity, this fragrance proves to be extremely consensual due to the gentle way in which it awakens our olfactory sensors, and the excelence of the global blending. In what ladies are concerned this perfume proved me to be a natural and compulsive head turner, but always in a very educated and elegant way.
This is one of the best "vanilla" fragrances for me, if not the best. I do recommend it.

In the opening, i get immediately an elegant, spicy leather. After some minutes, a lot of jasmine with a moist tobacco and a sweet vanilla.
