    Default Oriza L. Legrand Cuir Impérial - To be released 15 October...

    Just came across the entry for this on the Oriza L. Legrand website. I have three of their fragrances and this one sounds really interesting.
    Anyone have any scuttle butt on this yet or maybe even had a preview sent for their review?

    Cuir Impérial (1892)

    Top notes:
    Coriander, Lavender, Davana, Italian Bergamot, Cade and Styrax.
    Heart notes:
    Geranium Bourbon, May Rose, Immortelle, Cardamom, Styrax & Indonesian Patchouli.
    Base notes:
    Cistus Labdanum, Frankincense, Musk, Tonka Bean, Sandalwood, Amber, Benzoin & Vetiver.

    Naturally comes with a back story!

    Elegant and majestic, this imperial perfume conjures up the days of the Russian aristocracy's love affair with rich fragrances so refined they had no equals.
    Cuir impérial is a gleaming samovar at the centre of a smoking room hung with gold brocades shimmering with colour.
    Its heady mixture of blond tobaccos and smoked teas will revive once-distant memories of the Russia of the Tsars.

    Thank you for the info. Will be blind buying this for sure.

    Thank you for the information! I also really like this house, and I like leather.

    But immortelle is a really tricky note. And with leather it becomes even trickier. As long as it doesn't get overly sweet and cloying, could be good though.

    The notes sound pretty good. Will sample for sure.

    Thank you! Hopefully the lavender is bitter/dry/austere enough to keep the richness of composition lifted and discernible. I like this house!
