Originally launched in 1935, another aldehydic-floral fragrance created by the maestro Ernest Beaux. This one had/has an added leather smell. I have not had the luck to try any other variant than...

I use this since the 80's when it was sold only at some Chanel boutiques. It is my favorite fragrance, all times, all seasons. (Hate that nonsense of "summer this and winter that"!) Hope that...

The first time I tried Cuir de Russie in the Les Exclusifs format of 200 mls was at the Chanel Boutique 2008 . The juice was dark brown in color. I swooned on application and I remember to this...

Floralaldehydic leather soap and powder from the 1920s. According to Kafkaesque blog, strong fecal note, and reworked by Polge in the 1980s to increase the amount of iris and powder. I don't object...

After my disappointing experience with Tabac Blond, I was afraid this one would evoke the same impressions (that carnation is altogether overwhelming and unpleasant for me), but quite the reverse....

This is such a rich, expansive, almost warm scent. Whenever I take a sniff of it I almost feel giddy. Like the Chanel no. 5 EDP, it has almost a sun-warmed element to it, like the tang of a...

I love this. It smells expensive, almost like the interior leather of a very expensive and rare car. It took me several wearings to fall in love with it. It has a smoky opening and it was almost...

LOVE LOVE LOVE CdR! Bought the giant size EdT when les exclusifs was launched, and the parfum extrait when Chanel relaunched it. What can I say, one sniff brings to mind the most beautiful,...

I got a large decant of this from TPC and have waited a year to review it, I've worn it maybe a dozen of times and sprayed it in the air a bit as well. I just can't bring myself to like it. I...

Vintage Cuir de Russie was a well balanced leather blend. I can't find any leather in the current product 2012, nor flowers, just a rough disagreeable sandalwood. Chanel has killed this fragrance.

Ahh, for a gal who Hates dirty, smelly armpit scents, I found none in this scent. It Was smooth and very girly on me and I loved it. Only problem was: lasted about 1.5 hrs. and at that price I...

As much as leather is one of my favorite scents, of the (limited, I admit)leather-featured scents I've tried most have gone into plasticky-PVC-bondage leather rather than butter-soft leather gloves...

Leather for the queen out riding. This review is for the parfum version. Becomes a skin scent on me in about 30 minutes. Before then, I get more barnyard than with other leathers, meaning...

So, so sad. I so thought this would be my HG since I am so enamoured of leather, castoreum, jasmine, ylang ylang. What has Chanel done?!! In fairness, perhaps it is my body chemistry but in the...
