Vanilla and Suede Leather Go Nicely Together...
Vanille Cuir gets right down to business with a "what you smell at the fore is what you get for the duration" linear progression. The scent opens with a subtle lavender, bergamot and mint trio that barely is noticeable, near immediately joined by the real key players which are a beautifully soft vanilla, sweet tonka bean and a smooth suede-like leather, all from the base. "Subtle" "soft" and "smooth" really are the operative words here, as everything in Vanille Cuir's presentation is of that nature from start to finish. Projection is below average and longevity is average to above average.

Vanille Cuir is yet another superb release from Micallef. While the lavender, bergamot and mint arrive early, they are nearly undetectable due to Martine Micallef's fine blending unless you are really looking for them. The much more readily noticeable elements are the vanilla and tonka bean at first, with the vanilla being ever so slightly powdery, but quite sophisticated and restrained. Suede-like leather takes a back-seat to the sweet vanilla and tonka bean tandem, but it shows up very early-on, staying very noticeable through the dry-down. Vanille Cuir in general is very elegant and refined, minimalist and linear, and quite unisex in its nature. As with most Micallef scents, there is that sweet aspect from the tonka bean that could be too much for some, but coming from a reviewer who dislikes sweet scents generally, I think Micallef (as usual) goes right up to the maximum tolerable sweetness threshold but never crosses it. The minimalist nature of the scent definitely also works here, but I will admit that at $145 for 50ml or $225 for 100ml the value proposition is not as strong as I would like. That said, Vanille Cuir is an excellent smelling composition from one of the most consistantly outstanding houses and earns 4 out of 5 stars, appealing primarily to upscale minimalist vanilla lovers with a bit of a sweet tooth.
