This review is for the parfum, which I am privledged to have a tiny sample vial of: When first applied, it is rich, buttery, high end luxury car leather. I feel as though I am riding in a Bentley,...

All I can say is --- poop. This stuff smells like poop. But in a really kind of good, fascinating way. Seriously, that's the genius of Chanel. It's like the poop of some delicate animal who's only...

This is for women with "le gout du retro", for someone who has "classe" and "allure". Very distinctive, a bit snobby, my kids hate it... my husband loves it (on himself). Spent a fortune on it, but...

What can I say about such a classic... such a sublime and perfect scent? Last year I bought the EDT and the pure parfum. I wear them together, always. Other reviewers here have really...

I got a decant of this scent fairly early in my perfume explorations, because I wanted to try a classic leather scent. I liked it, but it seemed a little too old-fashioned for me and I eventually...

I purchased a sample of this from The Perfumed Court online for $3.00. The notes sounded nice and I wanted to try it. I do not care for the scent at all. To my nose it is totally "old lady",...

A Chanel SA gave me a sample bottle of this after asking me which scent in the Exclusifs line I liked best. I'm already a big fan of Coco and leather scents and Cuir de Russie does not disappoint...

I get a very, very potent tobacco note on first application with this, and not a sweet, indolent unburned tobacco - this is full-on stinky ashtray tobacco. I feel alienated from myself - I smell...

While I appreciate the artistry of Cuir de Russie, it is not for me. It was an overwhelming animalistic scent, like the smell of entering a barn and having the smells of animals and their...

I had the wonderful opportunity of trying vintage Cuir de Russie parfum from the 1950s. It was the most animalic yet softest perfume I have ever smelled. The leather was incredibly realistic,...
