I'm nearly 29 and I've been wearing this since I was 20, when my boyfriend brought me some back from Paris at my request. I'd never smelled it before but all the notes were what I loved, and even...

Review for the parfum: This is unbelievably beautiful, without question my favorite Chanel, and one of my favorites of all time. That's it; I may add more later, but it would really be de trop.

This review is for the parfum. I was eager to try this, because I love the leather note in the drydown of Chanel 19. But this is much more leathery--yet not in a masculine way. I must quote that...

Cuir de Russie. Avoided this for years since I've always been a confirmed leather hater until my conversion by SL Daim Blond and I still approached this tentatively, since instead of DB's soft,...

I tried to like this, I really did. Unfortunatley this just isn't for me. It's too masculine for my taste. It definitely smells like leather but there is something bitter in there that I just...

Do not order this online or by phone without first trying it. I almost did as I like leathery, complex fragrances especially Chanel scents, but thought better of it and went to the Chanel boutique...

If you find Cuir de Russie EdT even remotely interesting, do try it in parfum form. The beautiful floral notes are so short-lived in EdT and I also find the drydown to be a bit musky. Cuir de...

This...this was not for me. I am a fervent fan of Bois des Iles, and when I was last at a Chanel boutique stocking up, I tried a splash of this. On first sniff, I rather liked it. Leathery,...

I want to love this, with its pure and unadulterated old-school Chanel style. I don't get sweaty socks or stinky boy smell like some of you have mentioned but it's on the verge of being "a bit...

This is what I would smell if I were nuzzled against my man’s chest while he has been wearing his thick old leather jacket for a few hours. It smells “warm”, like laying next to a warm naked body...
