    Default Thierry Mugler Les Parfums de Cuir (2012)

    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?!?!

    Is there any evidence to suggest they aren't soaked in barrels?

    lmao! Yeah, I also thought the video was a bit convoluted hahaha, reality is they will probably just add a synthetic leather note.

    Just got off the phone with a Thierry Mugler rep...

    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.

    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.

    That does not sound boring. That sounds mouthwatering. His Pure Series is gaining real traction I think as more than a gimmick. I somehow think "Pure Cuir" will rank above TTOF and below Pure Havane on my Mugler favorites. I just hope the leather is cool, dry, and classy, instead of a hot, greasy mess.

    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.

    My review of all four Les Parfums de Cuir scents:

    http://wp.me/p1ovGs-13k

    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.

    No problem! The Angel version is really awesome, the only let down is Alien.

    Thanks for the comments my candy.
    Please can you compare them with the regular and the taste of fragrance, in terms of strenght?

    I'd say that Pure Cuir has a little bit more oomph than the Taste of Fragrance version but slightly less so than original. Don't get me wrong, it's strong, but just a touch softer than A*Men.

    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.

    Nice! You have me excited about the possibilities here. I'll be getting one, almost without a doubt. I'm not a big leather fan, but mixed with a classic, I can be on board.

    So they are the strongest of the flankers line, but still not as strong as the originals?

    Awesome reviews thanks.

    Is Angel a unisex or feminine scent would you say?
