    I don't know but I do know this 240 years old man belongs in another thread.

    Here's another thumbs up for Cuir de Lancome!

    I finally received my bottle of Cuir de Lancome yesterday and I absolutely love it. It's what I've been looking for- a soft blend of citrus and leather- so well blended and a real treat. Thanks to all the basenoters that got me on to this lovely scent.

    I finally bought this about a month ago, and I am very pleased with it. This is one of those fragrances that is available now through discounters, but I can only bet that this gem will make it on the endangered species list sooner or later (get it now!). It is no Cuir de Russie (Chanel), but I certainly wouldn't get in an argument if someone wanted to speak of Cuir Lancome just as highly.

    And it's still sold for under $40. I agree that this will one day be in short supply.

    Received this in the post today - my first ever blind buy!

    First impressions: I sprayed it on my wrist, waited 5 seconds and sniffed. As Marge Simpson said, Christmas in Aspen! That leathery, citrusy mandarin top note is absolutely fantastic and reminds me of strolling through Fortnum and Masons Foodhall in late December.

    Seconds later I was getting truly excited as that "real" leather note started to emerge. Not the pleather/leatherette plastic of Bandit or Azuree (which I still like) but plush, real tanned leather a la Cuir de Russie.

    The leather then quickly blended into the saffron, citrus and patchouli. Now, two hours in its more polite than I'd like. CdL eschews the barnyard accord of CdR extrait, preferring instead to showcase the iris and patch, with the leather a supporting player.

    Its very nice, perhaps a little on the feminine side for my taste, but certainly wearable if lightly applied. I can see its a go-anywhere fragrance. No one is likely to wrinkle their nose and tell you you smell weird / perverted / of manure etc

    So far I'm giving it a 7 out of 10 (or a cautious Thumbs up). I'm interested to see how it plays out over the course of the day and on future wearings.

    Anyway, thanks BNer for introducing me to this - I'm pleased its in my collection.

    I just may stockpile this one, could use it as a trade-bait later.

    Blind-bought this due to the rave reviews in this thread and, I must say, the accolades are well justified. This is a gorgeous fragrance. A big thanks to David (and all the other BN'ers) for turning me on to this one.

    I received mine a few days ago and I must say it's fantastic. The hype was justified. Not very strong or longlasting, but very classy and refined. For the price a must-buy.

    I am bumping this thread to generate more interest in this fabulous scent. I wear this scent often and carry a small sprayer vial of it with me.

    Order from Parfum1 and it will be $30 a bottle with the extra 10% discount!

    By now I have it and while I do like it a lot I have to agree with Larimar to some degree. It does have synthetic, harsh aspects and is not as smooth as I expected it to be.

    However, still very nice!

    I have to agree with both Timaru & Larimar that I do not smell any actual leather in Cuir de Lancome. It's very woody, but not actually leather-smelling IMO. My friend who generously gave me a large decant also could not smell leather in it. I think what people perceive in fragrances can be very subjective, so who am I to say if leather is present or not. But I don't smell it. At all. Unfortunately.

    Im quite bipolar for leather, some I love (Leather Oud) some i like (Tuscan Leather) and some I hate (Cuir Mauresque).

    What kind of leather this one have? Those acid (tuscan leather and Leather Oud) or that raw and crude (Cuir Mauresque)?

    No acid, no raw, no crude! Forget these 3 cuir and forget all strong leather scents.
    This is a gentle cuir, you will not find in it any dark /bad boy connotation .
    It's light like the spring and totally inoffensive like the delicate flowers in his bouquet. More than a classic leather scent, I consider CL a kind of "skin" scent when your skin e and it become the same perfume...so for my humble nose, of course! Imo a must try!

    Its something like What we do is secret by A Lab on Fire?
    That is a second skin leather scent.

    Cuir de Lancome is a jasmine leather, whereas Cuir Ottoman is an iris/leather.

    Broken record here: I don't think there is any "leather" in Cuir de Lancome. No birchtar, no isobutyl quinoline, no castoreum. It's just very sharply woody and it is clearly made with very cheap materials. I think of it as a bois scent, not an actual cuir scent.

    If looking for a dirt cheap leather scent, a great one is "Leather" by Demeter. It smells realistically of actual leather, though it is clearly not made with high quality materials.

    I received my bottle last week and Im wearing it today for the first time.
    I must say that the fragrance is incridible awesome indeed.

    It resembles Cuir de Russie by Chanel, but with a dried fruity opening instead of the aldehydic of the Chanel.

    My favorite leather still Cuir de Russie Les Exclusifs EDT until now, but we have some serious embracing fragrance here!

    Glad you got it Daniel! I think that it is great too. I think that we will see this line reintroduced in new packaging, and with new prices! Wear it in good health.
