Reviews of Cuir Pleine Fleur / Fine Leather

This one is just not my cup of tea! Way too much hay- I didn't get much else. Definitely try before you buy- it's not for everyone, clearly.

An out-of-doors leather fragrance with lots of hay and some violet. It's uni-sex and quite pleasant. If you have Green Irish Tweed but want more leather than Iris and Sandalwood it would be a good alternative. In fact this could be a good hay scent for those who like that quality.

There is such a contrast between the sweetness of the rose and honey and mimosa, the soft green scent of the violet leaf and the smoky bite of the suede and cedar and birch its hard to believe that they would work so well together, but they really do. Or perhaps its my skin chemistry the reviews on this have been so different, so maybe its that. Whatever, I really like this one. Youd think it would be very sweet, what with the flower and honey notes, but the suede seems to guide this gently away from what could have been a sticky, cloying mess and led it in a whole different direction, a great direction. Its not an overpowering leather either its beautifully balanced, as I keep getting lovely wafts of sweetness mixed with it. Longevity is excellent after six hours, it was still going strong, but not in a bad way, and I found the rose became more pronounced as the day wore on. This is really quite lovely. The price is a bit scary, but given the quality and longevity, Id definitely consider a full bottle.

This is a cool floral fragrance with leathery nuances. The leather note is mostly in the beginning and the mid phase. In the beginning there is a prominent violet leaf note that is combined with a clean, suede-like leather note. This is not far off from Fahrenheit territory; however, the difference is here the leather is cool, subtle, and has none of the petroleum/gasoline association. Any birch tar used has been dialed back significantly. The mimosa is discernible in the mid-phase as the leathery aspect slightly recedes. A note of freshly cut grass comes to the fore. Thereafter the fragrance is subdued and linear on my skin with a dry down that is slightly woody, green, and has the merest hints of the violet leaf and leather accord.

Overall this is a noteworthy composition. Irrespective of the similarities with Fahrenheit, it is also much different. The main point of departure is the cool aloofness, and how the conventional leather-woods aspect is placed in a floral context in an innovative way. The principal drawback is that the fragrance appears too thin beyond the mid phase. Even though it is an EdP, it wears much more like an average EdT. It is severely muted beyond the first hour, and duration is average at around 5-6 hours. A more robust composition with a greater concentration of oils, and more attention to the base would have been most welcome.

Recommended to anyone looking for a fine (mild/subtle/discreet) floral leather which is cool rather than warm, where the floral aspect doesn't dominate the composition, and one that's rather fleeting. It is both chic and hip, discreet, office-friendly, and inoffensive - like most of the Heeley range.

Heeley Cuir Pleine Fleur is a polite perfume, the better for wearing, especially for going out in public, and a treat for the wearer. Birch is listed as a base note here, which I understand gives it a leather smell. This would work well for everyday wear, including the office. It has a countryside smell to it, like the air on a day with good weather.

Not the automotive leather I enjoy. In fact, this smells more like hay in the fields of dairy country. Its as though this connection to cows feeding in the fields is purposely meant to reference leather. What the?
