    Default Which Cuir de Russie?

    It's slowly dawned on me that there are four fragrances from different houses with the same name. I just wonder how the experienced BNters can tell which one is meant in the countless threads where it is mentioned without reference to the house. I suspect the same applies to quite a number of scents.

    I always assumed it to be the Chanel unless stated otherwise.

    As was said, Chanel unless mentioned otherwise. Also the easiest to obtain as the Creed is discontinued. The Chanel Cuir de Russie is wonderful, especially the extrait.

    Very different frags, with the Chanel the clear reference, as others were saying. Note that the Chanel right now comes both in edt and in parfum - usually people talk about the edt in the exclusif series. The parfum is similar but there are differences (the edt is more floral, the parfum more leathery smooth, and more skin-like).

    Ah! Good thanks all. I had made the same assumption, but I thought I'd check. Oh, yes, the Chanel is wonderful. I can't recall if it was the edt or the edp I tried; a good reason to go back to the boutique.

    Edit: On re reading Cacio's post it must have been the edt as I was sampling the Exclusifs.

    Chanel's Cuir de Russie is available in edt and parfum, but not edp.
