Reviews of Les Exceptions : Cuir Impertinent

This is scent number three I've recently sampled in Mugler's Les Exceptions set...

Cuir Impertinent begins with an onslaught of gorgeous amber, closely resembling L'Occitane en Provence's now discontinued "Ambre / Amber" scent. Star anise is present in tasteful amounts to accent - never overtake - the amber-y goodness present here. The initial "shine" upon spray-on has the quality of a fancy aperitif drink, characteristic of a subdued, dry amaretto.

In the midst of this hypnotic sweetness emerges a slightly smoky piece of leather. Tobacco seeps in very subtly to round this beautifully rendered EdP.

Lasts a long time, and honestly, the reverie of L'Occitane's Amber scent of the early 2000's truly grabs my attention most in Cuir Impertinent. This would definitely be one of the Les Exception EdP's that I'd buy even at its boutique price.

First I smell tobacco shop (mmmmmm) mixed with leather. I smell them equally, then it pops up FRESH - it reminds me of citronella , here comes a whiff of fine Bourbon, then yummy anise. There is a subtle amber,it never overwhelms nor speaks loudly. This is heavenly. It reminds me of family parties at Christmas, the only time the men in the family seem to be allowed to smoke their pipes & cigars in the house. Fancy leather jackets when people arrive, the master bedroom with the smell of leather from everyone's coats a top each other, and that fresh smell of greenery and Christmas trees, with a bit of sugar cookies baking in the background. I have only worn this twice because I have a small sample I received when I purchased Alien from the Mugler website. I am desperate to have it but I sure do hate to spend $300, but I just may have to.

A boozy, bold, rich, big bodied leather. Although very boring, and common.

The vanilla seems to be the main player in CI. Cooler weather fragrance with a touch of amber and fresh Tobacco. There are plenty other leather fragrances I would purchase instead though.

Cuir Impertinent belongs in the collection of any diehard fragrance collector, but with a caveat. The presentation (black box and silvertoned bottle) are luxe and a joy to behold. Some vendors even offered engraving.

The scent, sadly, is not what one would assume from the makers of Angel as an exclusive offering.

I have several bottle of the Angel Cuir (I love it!) and it was only offered in the 30 ml bottle to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Angel, so I stocked up when it was released to discounters.

Cuir Impertinent is a warm, spiced leather with amber and tobacco. On me, it does not have the sillage or longevity of the Angel Cuir, so sampling is a must as mileage may vary.

Rbaker's review is much the way I experience Cuir Impertinent as to notes and longevity, although I am not familiar with the Creed for comparison purposes. Lasts over ten hours and with far less applied than most other fragrances I wear. The Mugler reps claim there are considerable natural oils in CI. I have no way of verifying that except to say there are zero harsh or chemical notes in any stage of the development on my skin, something I do experience with other Muglers such as the notoriously synthetic Angel.

The notes I have found for CI are: green note, spicy notes, hay, star anise, tobacco, amber, leather. I do also get the caramel vibe.

I absolutely love this scent. Its warm and cozy components come together to create a protective aura swirling around the wearer. Started wearing it in brisk November and it feels like one could never feel cold wearing this perfume. I'm curious as to how it will fare in spring when the weather turns warm.
