Just be grateful its only the opening. At least it disappears after 5-10 minutes.
I can handle an bad opening if the middle and dry down is fabulous.
It seems to be the raw tanner's yard opening you have the problem with. I do find Cuir Mauresque very raw in the opening, but it does not really bother me. The Chanel is very smooth all the way from beginning to dry down, to be honest I have never found another like it.
You could try Balmain Jolie Madam which is all raw leather and violets in the opening.
