Niche line Oriza L. Legrand will launch
Cuir Imperial Cuir de l'Aigle Russe,* a new fragrance, in October.
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.
The notes feature coriander, lavender, davana, bergamot, cade, styrax, geranium bourbon, may rose, immortelle, cardamom, styrax, patchouli, cistus labdanum, frankincense, musk, tonka bean, sandalwood, amber, benzoin and vetiver.
Oriza L. Legrand Cuir Imperial will be available in 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
*Update: the name was changed to Cuir de l'Aigle Russe when the fragrance was introduced.
