    Default Di Orio Cuir , thread 2

    http://www.basenotes.net/threads/305246-Di-Orio-Cuir

    it is incredible how the thread begins- totally negative, and ends in the opposite - cuir being considered the best of the late di orio.
    i like the scent and it is one of the very few i am looking to get a bottle, although i am trying to cut off my collection significantly.
    have your impressions of the scent changed since the first thread?

    I don't know the first thread, but I really liked Mona's Cuir until someone pointed out that it smells like chorizo. Now I can't get rid of the association.

    I actually still feel it is quite the opposite (save the most recent release of Rose, which was really an incomplete scent and awful).
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    From what I've experienced with several samples over time and, now, with my own bottle, the scent has not changed. I wonder if the flow from negative to positive is just related to people having the opportunity to try it from spray vs dab.

    When I first sniffed it from a dab sample it was way too smokey - the smoked meat/chorizo connection. I'm not into smelling like meat although I do appreciate some smokiness. When I tried a spray decant, though, it was completely different. The BO and meat smells are not there. Velvety smoke, wood and spice - dry but not nose tinglingly so. Sprayed on the torso and enjoyed through sillage creates an incredibly comforting aura that has smoke but also spice and warmth. The cardamom and oppoponax step forward...I get a sort of nutmeggy vibe too. Just don't stick your nose right on the sprayed area. FBW for me.
