Thierry Mugler is launching a new limited edition collection Les Parfums de Cuir ("The Fragrances of Leather"), which offers new editions of Angel, Alien, Womanity and A*Men perfumes, coming out in October 2012. This collection celebrates the twentieth birthday of Thierry Mugler perfumes. For the occasion, four new interpretations of the famous fragrances enriched with natural extracts of leather are presented. This concept combines haute perfumery and the traditional craft of glove making and perfume craft.
The new fragrances are made by soaking the original compositions in natural leather for four weeks.
Just watched the YouTube video...
They actually went through all that trouble to make the faux soaking barrels for display?!?!
Well that should be interesting.
Is there any evidence to suggest they aren't soaked in barrels?
The leather strips they use in the process are from the hides that are handpicked from the livestock on the Mugler farm. That prevents some schmuck off the street from copying the formula if they wanted to produce counterfeit bottles.
This seams to be just a boring leather gourmand...
Honey, fruits, caramel, vanilla, benzoin, coffe, milk, mint.
Wow a real tainted crew here
That liquid the are pouring in is pure extract that is totally unwearable on skin. Just a teaspoon of that would produce about 1000 bottles of fragrance.
Not sure how it affects the fragrance but they will have the best smelling leather after...
Hope to put my nose on them.

Making leather, um, tea out of the fragrances? Not sure what to think of that. I'd actually be a lot more interested if they were adding leather notes to the fragrances!
That being said, I'll watch the reviews, and see how it goes. Womanity and Alien are potentially interesting here.
Looking forward to try this and eventually buy it lol .
Mugler's limited editions never failed neither my skin or my nose .
Huge fan of both Pure malt and Pure Havane .
Hypocrites will always be a thorn in my back....and my middle finger will always be the best remedy.....
Looking forward mostly to Alien & A*Men
My review of all four Les Parfums de Cuir scents:
Womanity is my favourite of the four and Pure Cuir is probably one of my favourite of the 'Pure' editions, along with coffee and Le Goût du Parfum.
Thanks for the comments my candy.
Please can you compare them with the regular and the taste of fragrance, in terms of strenght?
I'm awaiting the first sighting......post as soon as you see it in a store!
Who is the nose for all of these releases?
The feminine bottles are beautiful.

I believe that they went back to the companies they worked with for each original, so e.g. Mane for Womanity etc. It doesn't specify in the press release though, although it did in earlier material I saw.
Willing to try.
