It will stay in your memory
I first tested the perfume many years ago when I bought a perfume collector's magazine in my youth. I can still remember very well which perfume was included in the issues at that time. In one issue was Iceberg, in the second was Jesus del Pozo Halloween, and in one issue was parfum de peau by Claude Montana. At the age of 15, I found the fragrance too strong, of course, but somehow interesting. And the other day (I'm almost 38 years old now) it came back to my mind and I was curious if it was still available. I ordered this piece of jewellery at a reasonable price and was happy to smell it. Wow said my nose about the fireworks of aromas which hit me. With this my definitely will not be overrun! First I perceive fruity notes, possibly of blackcurrant, blackberry and marigold. The fragrance continues to develop pleasantly, adding woody, leathery and animal notes to the fruity note. This makes the fragrance very sexy and has a high recognition value without being too intrusive. The fragrance has a great silage and durability. In my opinion it is an underrated masterpiece.

A womans body in motion
I bought Parfum de Peau from Montana about 6 years ago.
I was lucky enough to find a pretty old vintage bottle. It's a 50 ml splash/bottle and might be from the nineties or late eighties. Batchode I couldn't find one.
The box is also still tadeless and a leaflet is in the box, as it used to be. On the leaflet you will find the corresponding care products such as a body foam, moisturising emulsion, body cream, shower gel, soap etc. there was also an extra of it and an EdT light.
Parfum de Peau is referred to therein as a spicy aromatic chypre.

Who is behind the names Claude Montana?
Claude Montana, born in 1949, is a French fashion designer, whose trademarks in the eighties were large shoulder pads, narrow waists and leather pants. A self-confessed homosexual, he married his muse, the model of the same age, Wallis Franken, in 1993. They had known each other since 1977 and she was already running for his shows. Wallis played in Madonna's erotic video clip "Justify my love" in 1990. She is the lady resembling Jamie lee Curtis with suspenders and a peaked cap, who approaches Madonna's toyboy Tony Ward at about minute 3.10. Wallis had a penchant for self-destructive relationships and was obsessed with her hopeless, rather one-sided love for Claude Montana and so this marriage also ended tragically. She threw herself out of the window of her hotel room in Paris in 1996
Back to the fragrance Parfum de Peau. The fragrance came out in 1986 in the middle of the eighties. The fragrance is correspondingly undecendant.
Right at the beginning the Tagetes assert themselves, followed by orange blossoms, black currants and leather.
The leather described in the base notes asserts itself with me right at the beginning. Tagetes are also called Stinkerchen and have a slightly civet-like, slightly urine-like note. This makes the scent appear animalistic and naughty. The leather does the rest.
It takes a while for the fragrance to calm down a bit, then it becomes a little tame and shows its flowery heart.
It is difficult for me to smell the individual components of the flowers, I can identify Narcisse the best. Jasmine and rose should also be underneath The base notes are dreamlike already. I hear warm soft amber and a fruity blend. Some oakmoss should also be part of it.
I can still smell the base note on my skin after 20 hours.
Well, in the eighties you still got a lot of durability for your money.
The dosage should be handled rather carefully.
With measure and goal applied an absolutely dreamlike fragrance, which I like to wear again and again.
According to the cardboard, the spirally twisted bottle is supposed to represent a woman in motion.
I will guard my bottle like a treasure

Hear it roar- The spicy, tangy rose
Blue edp mini
Oh that big sizzling neon 80s sour electric fruity rose.
Montana is a myriad of ideas thrown in a blender and served up shaken, not stirred.The star on me is the big neon damascone rose which is also found in Magie Noire and Nombre Noir.Marigold and bitter fruit opening into the sour rose with the animalic creamy leather. Its just huge, over the top , sharp edged like the leather shoulder padded skirtsuit of the working girl of the 80s.

First formula splash edt update:

not as crisp as the edp..but well rounded and a complex beauty. The sour rose push pulls against the bitter marigold and the leather with the animalics support this gigantic opus. According to the insert it states: "the fresh spicy top noted are contrasted with the wooded, floral, warm and sensual base notes where musk and amber melt into the skin. Cyprus, spicy musky, avant garde."
This one can last 24 hrs. Can totally see Kim Katrall in Big Trouble in Little China wearing this as well as Tramell.
Note: it thrives best in cooler weather

sweaty rose chypre
Parfum de Peau is an animalic rose chypre that wears its animal differently than other growly rose chypres. It's not so much a leather scent as a live skin scent. The scent of sweaty skin gives PdP a tannic quality. If you focus on just the rose, PdP is very similar to other big 80s monster roses and rose chypres. But the stinging slap of ripe skin is bolstered by the tart green feel of unripened fruit and together they create a deliberate imbalance. The acrid skin and the young fruit highlight the electric feel of the rose and PdP charges at you like it wants to eat you.

Just amazing this is me thinks
Hello Dears,
In my skin this scent is more like chypre floral or floral aldehyde. Not at all like Leather kinda scent. Soapy and quite white floral on me. Cabochard is true leather, this is something else. But definitely I love this . Parfum de Peau is very much special, with own beautifull nature, can not compair to any other scent I think. Because.. I have not sniffed anything like this before, very unique. I hope You people will enjoy from this Gem. *Hugs*
