    RÍve en Cuir by Indult

    Here's anther one who doesn't have the popularity it should deserve. Reve En Cuir is one of the most original interpretation of leather in years. A gourmandic oriental leather. Yes, it has some sweetness and an edible feel to it but at the same time it's "dangerous" and "mysterious", somehow "dusty". Kurkdjian has been able to successfully juxtapose to the classic french perfumery chrisms (luxury, refinement, elegance) a rebellious / unconventional vibe. Cuir En Reve smells exactly like a bearded biker having a coffee break in a cakeshop specialized in high confectionery and Kurkdjian's mastery made it looks (smell) so natural.

    Don't get me wrong, CER is far from being overly sweet or cloying or even dirty, it is more of a subtle scent, rich but not overpowering. Its perfect balance between spices, patchouli and vanilla juxtaposed to a gentle leather note, woods and vetiver makes of it an incredibly satisfying compositions that's also very wearable.

    Downside: extremely pricey.
