    Cuir by Lancôme

    Cuir De Lancome is my latest purchase.
    and from the moment I sprayed it ...
    I really was taken by its... yes,
    Woody, Smoky and Leathery fragrance ....

    Its an "Everyday-Leather" scent and luckily for me not too feminine.
    Although my fave still remains
    Chanel- Cuir Russie as a definitive

    they do share similar notes...

    Chanel Cuir de Russie:
    aldehydes, orange blossom, bergamot, mandarin, clary sage; iris, jasmine, rose, ylang-ylang, cedarwood, vetiver; styrax, leather, amber, vanilla.

    Lancôme Cuir: bergamot, mandarin, saffron, Jasmine, ylang-ylang, hawthorn, patchouli, Iris, birch, orris root, styrax.

    The difference I found is that there is a grassy green note as it settles on my skin
    not sure what produces this ...
    but it works for me ... in a strange way

    A male friend said it smelled like
    "Expensive Men's Shaving Soap"

    I think its another great find!!!
