I bought Leather from Candle Science and I'm pretty underwhelmed. I definitely need to blend it with something. I searched and found a few suggestions. Most of the threads were fairly old, so would love to hear some suggestions. Thanks!

Surprisingly, flower notes can pair nicely with leather. Even citrus notes can help offset leather scent. What combo did you try?

I love leather smells, it reminds me of a new sofa or car.

You can add tobbaco bayleaf or tobbaco vanilla for a masculine scent

Coffee. Embrace the feeling of your favorite leather chair at your local coffee shop.
When I do custom mixes (which is not very often) I tend to pair complete opposites. I like the idea of citrus mentioned above, I'm also thinking mint or basil, or a heavy floral like rose.

I blended BB Leather with Whiskey from CS and I love it! It’s probably not for everyone, though.
