Cuir de Russie
Most of what has been written on classical perfumery falls into three categories: the description, the tribute and the complaint, also known as anger passing for nostalgia. Take Chanel no 5: • The description: Soapy. Bubbly. Old Lady perfume. Flowery. Feminine. • The tribute: The... Read more

Just naughty enough
The leather dominates the opening but I get some ylang-ylang too. It's pretty soapy in the opening as well but after it warms up the soapiness fades. I get more musk at this point and something else behind the leather I can't quite name. The oriental notes perhaps? The drydown has a lot of tobacco... Read more

Soft, Subdued & Elegant... My favourite Chanel.
Cuir de Russie is a beautiful leather fragrance. But it's a leather-orris combination. A "powdery leather" almost. I have tried leather fragrances with a more animalic leather note. This is a feminine, androgynous leather, rather than a very full, animalic one. We know the story of... Read more

Old leather
Wonderful animalic and dark leather. It's deep enough to make you think you're all covered by leather. The opening is a bit rancid leather, but then turns to a smoother leather with the tobacco note. Not an easy fragrance to wear, but beautifully constructed and blended. Sillage,... Read more

The musical theater of Cuir de Russie
I remember the first time I tried Cuir de Russie and, like Missk (excellent review, below), having read all the hype I was prepared for a huge leather bombshell. Instead, I was surprised how deep, beautiful and restrained it seemed. On the other hand, I was also surprised, like Drseid (another... Read more

Too Animalic For Me...
Cuir de Russie (current edt version) opens with a nose burning blast of aldehydes with just the faintest hint of orange before an extremely animalic leather accord emerges in the heart notes. This leather is more of the fecal farmhouse animal stench variety and is somewhat difficult to tolerate.... Read more

Feminine and reserved leather
I was preparing myself for a strong leather scent, bigger and bolder than what I've previously tried. I was amazed to discover that this is a feminine and soft leather, nothing like Bandit by Robert Piguet or Cabochard by Gres. This is leather with pretty floral and soapy nuances. I find nothing...

Intensely Leathery
Chanel CUIR DE RUSSIE is a full-fledged leather perfume. No idea why they've placed it in the oriental floral category, as this creation opens as dark leather conditioned with something like railroad grease and evokes images in my mind of black leather whips and Catherine Deneuve's afternoon lover...

Sophisticated Leather Floral
Cuir de Russie is a beautiful leather floral. The aldehyde and citrus opening is typically Chanel, with bergamot most prominent. The jasmine and rose are most noticeable after the first brief minutes. I perceived the leather quite clearly in the heart as well as the base, and it is still... Read more
