Go with Coromandel.
Hi everyone, tomorrow the weather's gonna be quite cool over here, about 7-15 ° C which is 44.6 - 59 ° F. I'm thinking about wearing Coromandel again... I've read a lot of times that the fragrance will shine in the autumn and winter. Well, May is actually spring, but who cares. I love the scent myself (I'm 21 and guy), but I wanted to hear if you think the temperature's just alright for it, as I reckon a lot of you have much more experience with it than I do. Thanks!
PS: Or should I go for Cuir de Russie (EDT)?
Go with Coromandel.
The said weather's perfect for Coromandel...go with it
Yeah. As long as its not like 85 degrees (F), Coromandel will be fine.
Smelt Coromandel for the first time 2 days ago before a 6 hiur flight. Half way through i knew i needed/wanted this as soon as possible. I am not a patchouli fan but the cocoa blended in blew my olfactory mind away.
ointments and perfume delight the heart....
I think Coromandel is great in all weather. Also I think it's a lot more versatile than Cuir de Russie.
Thanks guys, you are great. So I'm going to wear Coromandel tomorrow. BTW what Do you find about CdR non-versatile? And how about Bois des Iles? :-)
Bois des Iles is amazing, and I find it to be very versatile. Concerning CdR, I find leathers to be scents I have to be in the mood for, not really situation specific. If you are in a constant leather mood, I guess CdR is very versatile
This is why I consider Antaeus one of my favorite scents, but do not wear it accordingly.

Tomorrow i will be wearing Cuir de Russie. Although Coromandel is never a bad idea.
Should be ok up to 60df. Maybe even a bit higher. Depends on the humidity too, though. I wouldn't wear that incense on a damp day, in almost any event.
Coromandel is lovely in all weather. Same with Bois des Iles. Cuir de Russie can be a bit challenging in warmer weather to me, as the leather note goes a bit 'dirty hair' smelling. I'm still experimenting with it, though.
Thanks guys for the great advice! I'm wearing Coromandel.
Lovely stuff, got my eye on a bottle once my LIDGE runs out...
Well, it's cheaper than therapy... edit: No it's not...
Coromandel blew me away. I have a love for this frag like no other.
There is a reason its the top in my signature! I only can hope it is a good thing my wife only likes Tommy Girl and isnt into gourmands or Patchouli, cause if she wore this stuff, i would be at her will.

You would never know unless you try.
Figured I'd chuck this in here instead of starting a new thread.
To those people that don't really like patchouli but like Coromandel, I've found a fragrance that I feel is similar.
Nombril Immense by Etat Libre d'Orange.
It's certainly not as long lasting, and I still prefer Coromandel's sweetness, but you can smell the restrained use of high-quality patch in there. The spiciness to it really differentiates it from Chanel's fragrance.
Does anyone else have any fragrances that use patchouli (and good patchouli, not a head-shop patch like in current Zino) in this softer manner?
