The triptych of scents within La Collection des Cuirs isolates specific notes found within Russian Leather, the most iconic accord used in perfumery to evoke leather to the senses. Vanilla Bourbon, Ylang-Ylang and Patchouli – French perfumer Francis Kurkdjian exalts these raw materials in their most noble form to express the tactile appeal of leather.
Cuir Bourbon ~ "CUIR BOURBON, like velvety blonde suede, blends Vanilla Bourbon within the warmth of musk and spicy accents of Safran for a voluptuous and addictive scent."
Cuir Ylang ~ "The luminous tropical flower Ylang-ylang receives accents of Incense and Birch in CUIR YLANG for an intoxicating yet harmonious blend similar to smooth leather."
Cuir Patchouli ~ "Full of textured seduction, CUIR PATCHOULI recalls grained leather in powerful presence lightened and uplifted by notes of Bergamot, Amber and Cinnamon leaf." Additional notes include cumin.
Cuir Absolu ~ A Russian leather accord which can be worn alone or layered.
