Reviews of Cuir

Very pretty, girly opening. Heavenly blend of mandarin and saffron. Bergamot doesn't kill it for me here. I get a lipstick accord.

The heart is floral-sweet with resinous hints and dots of patchouli. The sweetness is in the background - not sickly or anything nasty or overdone. It's like someone squeezed all the girly nectar out of the jasmine and ylang ylang to create this ultra, femme heart.

Orris / iris moves into the picture. Hints of freshly-cut birch-wood. A little dose of styrax later on... A little more strength of styrax in time... and, it deepens. Nice!

Sweet balsamic brown construction that's barely there; the Emperor's new Leather Clothes.

Ethereal fresh opening, soft and plush, smells like high quality leather goods on a powdery background. It gets sweeter and timid floral notes emerge in the heart but can't compete with the powdery aspect that dominates. As it begins to dry down, the powdery notes make way to spicy ones.

Saffron with a nice styrax and leather backbone; it all comes off as a polite, soft, dense suede. It’s a little doughy. Low sillage, quickly become a skin scent, but it’s resinous, mixes well with personal chemistry and hangs around.

Cuir de Lancome reminds me of a new-smell suede jacket I bought decades ago from Bermans Leather, “the leather experts” and quintessential mall specialty store. I really liked that jacket. Every time I watch Pulp Fiction with Butch hopping those fences, trying to be invisible, creeping his way back to his pad to grab his watch, I think of that jacket. Memories and scent!

CdL is rather simple. It's not your typical russian leather like, say, Aramis or Bandit.

Montale Aoud Leather and Al Haramain Red Jafran oil (very strong) have a similar saffron. Chanel CdR les exclusif edt and CdL share a similar styrax leather base and feel, as well.

My bottle is from '07; I assume industry restrictions affecting styrax related material will hurt this one.

Most leather fragrances are more masculine. This one is a feminine leather. Not much leather, but more of a supporting note. It is mostly Ylang Ylang and saffron. An elegant fragrance with hints of vintage women's frags before they turned into generic sweet/florals.

Heaven bent for leather? Yes! Spicy, floral, light leather. Can’t say there’s a lot of those floating about. More like a soft suede glove dropped in an garden in India. There’s also a touch of sweetness in the base to boot. I like wearing this one especially in the heat in the summer. Leans a touch to the ladies side but confident men can easily pull this off.

Lancome’s best and one of my favorite leather-based fragrances.
