Cuir Velours is part of a duet of fragrances released by Naomi Goodsir, an Aussie milliner. It is the perfect suede leather for me this winter. Soft as butter (no tannic stinkers here, please. Yes, Mona di Orio, looking at you.), with edges of blond tobacco, and very soft dry vanilla dry down...purrrrrrrr.... Can you tell? I want to bathe in the stuff. Imagine a more sophisticated version of Bottega Veneta (minus the fruit and patchouli tang), and you'll get close. This is what Tabac Blond should smell like, instead of that clove mishmash Caron's trying to pass off these days. Cuir Velours is absolutely unisex. Longevity is not great, perhaps 4 hrs with a wonderful cuddly drydown of salted skin. I purchased my bottle from Luckyscent. Lovers of suede and tobacco should definitely sample.
