A landmark
"Cuir de Russie" is a relaunch - my review refers to the new 2016 version by Le Jardin Retrouvé.
Le Jardin Retrouvé is a wonderful brand from a small family-run house - discovering their fragrances feels like a journey into a wonderland. Of course, "Cuir de Russie" is a name of iconic status in the perfume world - and Le Jardin Retrouvé are not the only ones who produce a fragrance called "Russian leather". Nevertheless I don't want to draw any comparison to all the other solid, pleasant or great fragrances which combine leathery, floral and spicy notes - this would take far too long and bore those who don't know say "Cuir de Russie" by Chanel and/or "CdR" by Le Jardin Retrouvé. Maybe it suffices to say that the new 2016 version is an important landmark in the world of leather scents. I'd say it's a work of art you can actually wear.
"Cuir de Russie" seems quite dry and built around an accord of leather and citrus. But I don't get the typical "gentleman's club" impression from smelling it, no, "Cuir de Russie" is perfectly unisex, not too smoky, but dithering between a chypre and a mysterious, luxury Eau de Cologne with a definite "vintage vibe". The whole impression is polished, with no hard edges, although there is a distinct greenness humming beneath its exquisite leather-accord. If you love leathery fragrances, try the new "Cuir de Russie" , it's very comfortable to wear, sublime, smooth, elegant and surprisingly "shareable"with an addictive dry warmth that lingers on for a couple of hours.

A masterful, yet fleeting blend of powdery violet and suede with some spicy and green touches. Slight nod to Quorum, but sooo much better.

All about the violet, brushed with birch. A pleasure to wear in any weather, as sillage is polite.
