    I'm in Jicky PdT today because I couldn't make up my mind about scent this morning and that told me I better try the first thing I saw that I hadn't worn in a while. Jicky is great in its own of course, but strangely what I suddely enjoy about it today is how it reminds me of Mouchoir de Monsieur.

    In an un-fragrance related note I went dress shoe shopping yesterday, so today I'm trying to start breaking in a new pair. They look so good, but let the break-in pains be slight this time!

    Chanel Cuir de Russie parfum

    On first application from a dabber sample, I smell what seems to be strongly chemical leather tanning compounds. This type of leather scent is very refined, and has a sort of "new car" edge to it. Mingling quietly with the leather are light florals, some powder, and hints of manure, hay and antiseptic (castoreum) which gives a horse stable quality to the leather. Also lurking below the surface is some smoke which smells like tarry, plastic resin. It is not unpleasant like some fragrances that smell like burning plastic, but this is probably the birch tar note which gives a slight petrochemical slant to the leather. I am pretty sure there are some aldehydes also, as I smell some very faint soapyness. By far, though, the smoky tar note is the most prominent, and separates CdR from the more castoreum-heavy leather scents which are evocative of leather horse tack and saddles. Despite the barnyard quality of the castoreum, the birch tar makes the fragrance seem more industrialized, such as the smell of a freshly made pair of gentleman's boots or fine ladies' gloves.

    The florals take on more of a supporting role in this fragrance in the beginning and middle stages. I am almost sure there is some iris in CdR, as there is a faint powder note which increases through the development. There is also a urinous note that becomes more intense. It seems to be very much a part of the leather, but could also be a sharp, indolic floral such as jasmine. As the parfum unfolds slowly during the middle stage, I also notice a creamy and spicy wood accord that reminds me of a similar accord in Bois des Iles or Egoiste. It is not a particularly recognizable wood, but is soft and warm, somewhat like sandalwood mixed with subtle amounts of cinnamon.

    In the drydown, the floral and powder become much stronger, and the leather is mostly faded. The soft and spicy wood persists also, but the powder is the main note. Although there is really no overt leather note at this point, the floral and powder continue to evoke the memory of leather. The sharp white floral note seems most instrumental in maintaining the leather sensibility--it has been present throughout the whole development of the fragrance, and has morphed in character depending on the varying contexts of the other notes. In the drydown, the floral note is considerably softer, having lost much of its urinous edge. In the late drydown, CdR is mostly sweet vanilla, powder and perhaps a sweet musk, with a whisper of the floral and creamy wood notes still remaining. The leather is completely gone at this stage, about 4 hours after application.

    With a fragrance like this, I fail to understand why Chanel tries to limit distribution. There is nothing particularly dated nor any age/gender limitations. CdR is a beautiful, classic, well-composed scent that seems appropriate for any age, man or woman, and probably any occasion, too. I am not a leather fragrance collector, but I think if I could only have one leather fragrance in my collection, CdR would be it.

    As I suspected and now have confirmed, I am no lover of strong patchouli scents. Lui wears quite strong with excellent sillage. However, for my taste, this juice just stinks like a dirty hippy who has not bathed in several weeks.

    I am not enjoying this juice one bit, although, I do respect that individual tastes differ and there are many lovers of this fragrance. If you love Lui, please go for it and enjoy! However, it is not for me.

    Everyone have or continue to have a Great Sunday!
    LOL - I remember those patchouli days! Thanks for giving me a great laugh. No offense meant - none taken!!!

    Whoops! I forgot to mention my scent, too. Harrumph! I blame all these interesting SotD posts.

    Chanel Allure Homme Sport Cologne Ahhhh!

    A nice, cooling, citrus scent that worked surprisingly well for heavy exertion in winter weather.
