    Exclamation Cuir de Lancôme - STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL !!!

    Sorry to rave, but I cannot get over how beautiful this creation is. Please, please, please try it. Don´t expect leather as in other perfumes. Expect the smoothest, finest blend of mandarine,safron, patchouly and leather you could ever imagine. A blend so intoxicating it will have your head spinning !
    Expect retro barber shop......of the most luxuriest sort on this planet. After your perfect cut and styling, this is what they would spray you with.
    I can´t stop smelling my arm. This perfume has brought me to tears.

    It really is wonderful!
    Coincidentally I'm also wearing it on my arm right now.

    I don't get a barbershop vibe from it (lack of peppy citrus and lavender), but yes it's smooth and luxurious.
    Dry fruits over a blond suede. Very nice stuff. Quite tenacious too.

    It should be categorized as an "orgasmic leather"! Seriously breathtaking stuff!!!

    It really is a gorgeous scent, isn't it? I don't get retro barbershop, though. Maybe because I'm a chica. It makes me think of a hardly used high-end leather bag found in a vintage store: expensive, well-crafted, but smooth and not too new-leather-smelling. Very comforting and lovely!

    It's such an embracing leather. It compliments the glowing Cuir ottoman very well.

    I agree. Usually, I find myself drawn more to edgier leathers (Knize Ten, Bandit, sometimes even Rien), or, in the smooth category, 1740. But sometimes you just want plush and suede, and Cuir is it.

    It's very good - somewhat reminiscent of Chanel CdR before they reformulated it as Exclusif, but without the herbal notes. Good fragrance that's very reasonably priced....

    Lancome is a very good house with many high quality fragrances. Cuir de Lancome is one of my favorite fragrances with a leather note. Fresh and seductive leather.

    I agree with all of the positive comments. Cuir de Lancome is a beautiful and well crafted fragrance.

    This is my best leather of all. I love leather notes, including Arsene Lupin Le Dandy, Cuir Mauresque, Cuir Ottoman and even Chanel Cuir de Russie extrait or Guerlain Derby.

    This is my go-to leather!

    Cuir is brilliant to say the least. Plush and luxurious leather. Very underrated. Going for $30 on Parfum1 so it may be time to get some back ups

    I've never smelled this, I don't know why.

    Turin 5-starred this one, right?

    I like how this one manages to remain airy from start to finish. The leather is never overpowering, the florals never cloying. Really good stuff. To me it smells like a modern alternative to Lanvin's Scandal. In fact, I think I prefer Cuir. I'll have to go revisit my sample.

    I acquired a bottle in a swap, and enjoyed the first wearing. The second wearing was a bit of a bore, and after the third I decided to move it out, which I did not long ago. By comparison, I wore FUBU Plush for men a few days ago and really enjoyed the powdery leather drydown. I wish I understood better why I like the one and not the other. My idea now is that CdL is too "horizontal"' whereas FPfM has both horizontal and vertical components, which means it doesn't bore me. CdL is well made and natural smelling, so there's got to be something about it that doesn't work for me. With Dior Homme, it was the first couple of hours (which I don't like much) that led me to initially dislike it, though now I have the patience to wait a while for the excellent drydown. With CdL, it smells really nice at first, and it continues, but it's just nice, like so many others that I hardly ever wear.

    Funny, David mentions it's such a smooth blend... I have always found it "sharp" on me and yes, exactly as if it wasn't blending at all on my skin. Anyway, I don't like it. It is also no leather in my categories. I also can't see any relation with Lanvin Scandal, which is my holy grail of leathers that I own in several vintages.

    In general, I don't have problems with seasonality in fragrances. Cuir is a real leather, smooth but rich, so whether you like it in the Houston summer depends on whether you like wearing, say, orientals in the summer. This is not one of those fake leathers, like (the excellent) Tom of Finland, which is fresh and lemony.

    It was part of a series of older re-issued fragrances. I think the series is still available, (Sagamore was also one of the fragrances in this series). Unless they came out as limited editions - but I don´t think that was the case.

    I also love the smooth leather in CdL. I used to spray a bit to the linings of my mobile phone case.
