I sure am glad I tested this before purchasing. I love the EDT, although it took me a couple wears to fully appreciate it. But the EDP is way to feminine "perfumy" in the 6+ hours drydown range. I'm glad I have a large decant of the EDT, because the EDP is unwearable for me in the late stages.

I’m on a big leather bender these days. This leather is soft and lovely. The qualities of the ylang + jasmine + aldehyde blend in this reminds me very much of how Patou balanced on the same tightrope with Joy. Not that the two frags smell at all alike. They don’t. But they certainly share a sensibility. Just a hint of anamalic I’d characterize as kitty pee, but I’m a city girl - I wouldn’t know barnyard if it bit me.

Now this is gorgeous and opens up with a creamy buttery ylang ylang followed by a very refined supple almost suede like leather.

As time passes you can smell jasmine,dry woods, iris all woven tightly together that the scent shimmers on your skin. Smell it one moment you get the leather, smell it again and you can smell the jasmine. It is a beautiful classy multifaceted fragrance.

Deep into the drydown after many hours I can even smell a soft and sensual animalic scent on my skin.

This scent lasted seven hours on my skin and the projection and sillage was decent.

I have to say this is one of the most luxurious and classy fragrances I have ever smelled. Bravo to Chanel this is just a beautiful refined gem of a scent. Big thumbs up!

I find the new edp version of Chanel Cuir de Russie similar to the recently discontinued edt version. The changes are minor, if even noticeable, and to the extent it's different, it seems like a nice update.

It smells like newer leather. The edt was more of a soft, broken-in red leather. This has slightly more sheen of a new leather, also red.

I've sampled the current parfum, and it has even more sheen. This edp is in perfect continuity between the old edt and the parfum.

The EDP scents beautifully on my Girl in spite of the fact she hasn't really cottoned to the Cuir of any age.
She's a Bois des Ilses and No.5 woman.
I think that the EDP, properly,caters to the current Feminine sensibility.
The EDP scents a little rounded and curvy on my Masculine skin.

I prefer this concentration to the EDT, I think: it's richer and smoother and the barnyard is less jarring. Or perhaps I'm just finally growing into it...
