Warm fresh soapy familiarity
So when a fragrance has "Cuir" in the name, I always expect a lot.... Much leather to be exact....

Not so with Cuir de Russie (CdR)....
When I spray on CdR, first of all a "fresh-floral-soapy" wind blows against me....
really delicate, fine soap bubbles, something like when you sniff in summer on a line of freshly hung laundry dried by the sun....

In the later course comes with me a creamy note of soft leather added.... But really absolutely fine and discreetly held....

Perhaps as if a cowboy with his "leather-saddled" little horse has scampered through the laundry and has left a gentle briiiiese of his being on the fresh warm laundry...

The scent is sometimes there with me, sometimes it's gone, knocks again, hides again, and so it goes back and forth for a few hours....

Basically I like strong fragrances with a lot of power... CdR has rather little power for my conditions, but a good endurance... That's why I still like him very much... it gives me a feeling of warmth and security.... I like to wear him at home just for me....

Sometimes it has to be Chanel...
To my shame, I must confess...,uh, no, it's not shame, it just happens. Christmas is Chanel, Chanel is Christmas. And I don't mind why I'm in love with a leather scent, because it's a Polge product. Polge is kind of like Thierry Wasser, only chanelled. And Thierry, as brilliant as he is, just like his forerunners from the same company, has failed to create a leather scent I really, really love. Polge did.
At the same time, I wasn't at all willing to try Cuir de Russie, to like it, or even to encounter it uncritically. I had all but dismissed overly leather-heavy scents for myself. Some have found their way into my home over the...it's been decades! Farina's Russian Leather was surprisingly good, Habit Rouge I found only as a dress code really great, some fragrances with suede also charmed me for some time.
The other day, however, a perfumer whose opinion I generally consider quite sound mentioned that Chanel' Extrait of Cuir de Russie was divine. Unfortunately, it was not enough with me not to the Extrait, only to the EdP, which is possibly not quite so perfect, but for me it is already damn great.
It combines everything I expect from a wearable leather fragrance: soft to almost creamy, at the beginning light, fresh fruit notes, then the delicate leather in union with sweet spicy notes. Roses form the bed on which the Chanel leather bag lies, a little wood underpins and supports the noble effect.
Absolutely classic, not subjected to any fashion or current, like No.5, here only as a leather object of desire. Chanel just.

A Haflinger with the cream gene
Furthermore an elegant leather royal. The fragrance starts with a very short greeting of bergamot, quickly it becomes creamy and smells of tangerine, ylang ylang and jasmine. Suddenly, birch wood emerges from the ride with a Haflinger (leisure horse) through the Bois de Boulogne forest. Traces of smoke are very, very little. Nevertheless, CdR in eau de parfum is a nice, easily wearable channeled fragrance and is worth a supplement to the extra

Similar to Musc Ravageur .. old autobahn toilette smell
I know the Exclusif series and I am a big fan of Coromandel, I think it is in art form of perfume creation and just love to smell it both on a lady or on myself.

Today I went to the Chanel boutique to sample this exclusifs series and I liked Boy, Sycomore and of course Coromandel.

I tried the Cuir Russie for which I had big expectations, right from the flacon to the nose and I got a strong smell of dry pissoir, identical to the one from Musc Ravageur. Funny thing, I even see that Parfumo mentions Musc Ravageur as "loved by the ones who love Cuir Russie".

Maybe it is a nice smell, for the people who do not perceive this dry pissoir from the Autobahn scent.

Opulent Refined Leather
Now this is gorgeous and opens up with a creamy buttery ylang ylang followed by a very refined supple almost suede like leather.

As time passes you can smell jasmine,dry woods, iris all woven tightly together that the scent shimmers on your skin. Smell it one moment you get the leather, smell it again and you can smell the jasmine. It is a beautiful classy multifaceted fragrance.

Deep into the drydown after many hours I can even smell a soft and sensual animalic scent on my skin.

This scent lasted seven hours on my skin and the projection and sillage was decent.

I have to say this is one of the most luxurious and classy fragrances I have ever smelled. Bravo to Chanel this is just a beautiful refined gem of a scent. Big thumbs up!

Despite of (or because of) its citrusy opening and floral heart, leather and birch rule over a leathery, smoky and balsamic masterpiece.
