British niche line Ormonde Jayne has launched Cuir Impérial, a new fragrance.
The history of leather and perfume are entwined in the town of Grasse in France, which was famous only for the finest leather goods. Ormonde Jayne's newest scent, Cuir Impérial completes a full circle as Grasse today is known for its perfumes of sophistication and individuality.
The fragrance of leather comes from treating raw hides with birch tar, followed by being submerged into a vigorous boiling process until a rich leather and burnt woody scent is yielded which infuses so excellently with other spices and flowers.
Cuir Impérial by Ormonde Jayne is a perfume to be handled with care and discretion, born to blaze, its intoxication fearless.
With such rich ingredients, pungent patchouli, creamy sandalwood, heady musk, smouldering incense and seductive leather, Cuir Impérial spins you into a heavenly orbit, trapping you in a powerful web of intricate complexity.
Additional notes include cognac oil, clary sage, bergamot, cardamom, pink pepper, orris, raspberry, rose, freesia, tonka bean, cedar and vetiver.
Ormonde Jayne Cuir Impérial is exclusive to Harrods in the UK, £195 for 50 ml.
