    Default Just Bought Cuiron Blind

    Based on all of the comments here, I bought Cuiron blind yesterday and all I can say is....Wow! Unlike any other leather frag--in fact unlike any other fragrance at all. This strikes me as a "bright" leather that has little to do with the birchy Russian Leathers and other leathers like Knize Ten, Peau d'Espagne, etc. Really unique. I haven't officially worn it yet (Heritage for me today) as I am gearing up for it--it seems like a fragrance that will get noticed. $29.00 for 1.6 oz., by the way, at Perfumes West in Los Angeles. Thanks, everyone, for the great comments.

    Great fragrance at a great price! I'm saving the last drops in the bottle I got when it was released. :toppie:

    At 29$ a bottle I would pick another up if I were you. This one is very hard to find these days.

    One of the things I love about Cuiron is that sometimes when I smell it, it gives off a "new house" smell. Like when you walk into a house that is being built and is almost finished. It's an awesome real life smell, and sometimes I get a bit of that in Cuiron.

    Wow, this just goes to show how different everyone is with regards to what they like and dislike. I bought this one quite cheaply when Sephora was having some sort of internet sale. I had read all the good words people had to say about it, but nothing prepared me for the scent that happened when in touched my skin. Imagine if a still living cow was skinned, set on fire, turned into a couch and then put through a ringer so that the very last iota of "cow juice" was extracted. Now let that age a couple days in the middle of a pig farm. My loathing of this fragrance truly knows no bounds. I smelled it on a guy a couple months later at the gym and asked what it was, since I seriously had to move to another part of the gym it was so sickening. When he mentioned Cuiron, I just looked at him with a knowing smile and said, "of course it is". Y-uck with a capital "Y".

    That description's pretty spot on! However, its disappointing projection made me sell my bottle in the end. Even now, I have no regrets.

    Drying latex paint, sweat, cigarettes and a half eaten burrito? Yeah, that's about right.

    j/k... it's a tamale, not a burrito.

    Cuiron is transcendental and life-altering. I mark my days pre-Cuiron and post-Cuiron! Now tell me where I can get more for $29????

    I could live with just Cuiron, Tabac Blond and Muscs Kublai Khan.

    I wish they hadn't discontinued Cuiron.

    I'd consider it a deal at twice that price these days. I love it but I rarely wear it for wear of using up my rare bottle.

    When I bought my bottle, I could have easily purchased another half a dozen bottles from the same ebay seller soon afterwards. And I would have if I wasn't so underwhelmed by it. That was over a year ago...
