Cuir de Russie Light
The brand L.T. Piver says it has been active for about 250 years and produces inexpensive but popular fragrances in its own factory. I myself was always curious about the Cuir de Russie, where I suspected a product of a Knize Ten, a Bel Ami and the like. Simply because it is probably about Russian Russia leather, a leather smell evoked by the birch. Since I knew the Cuir from an identical house and did not like it, I hoped that other works were made in the past.

The result is first of all a badly diluted scent, I say it directly. The typical smell of such perfumes as mentioned above is there, it smells old-fashioned, spicy and good per se. But the leather is extremely soft-rinsed, by far too soapy. In principle, soap is not wrong, it often intensifies the leather scent. Here it is too much or metaphorically speaking: the stale cleaning water now without foam cleans the worn leather pants with a lot of fabric patches.
The leather gradually transforms into beeswax leather. I have experienced this phenomenon often enough and I like to repeat myself: I am happy when my leather shoes smell like this after polishing. I do not have to. So it is quite possible that beeswax or an equivalent has been used.

The content is probably the same as for perfumes of this kind and age, since the fragrance contains the spicy herbaceousness, which is no longer found in newer products. I am thinking of clary sage, of course oakmoss, carnation, to name but a few examples. Oakmoss is even perceptible, but not as a cooling element but as a component of the warming, spicy chose. Understandably, Cuir de Russie provides additional warmth in the cold Russian winter. The Muscat sage could therefore be included, as the fragrance is gently herbaceous, a little ethereal, that would fit.

All in all Cuir de Russie succeeded and in 1939 he was certainly a real good one. In 2020 you can wear it with a clear conscience, because the scent is not bad. Time hasn't stood still and so this reminiscence of past decades can probably not be put in relation to other fragrances. However, if - there are plenty of opportunities to do so - you don't attach importance to longer durability and discreet silage, then Cuir de Russie is worth an idea.

With thanks to Cravache for the wonderful experience of testing Cuir de Russie.
