Rubber tires + cigarette ashes + some flowers thrown in = Cuir de Russie (to my nose). It has amazing staying power as it is the case with other Chanel fragrances. This one is definitely not for...

The magic of this scent is not so much it's beauty (for it is quite stunning) but how deeply it affects me. Someone once mentioned how it is perfect to wear on a rainy day, and I agree. It is...

If I were to rank Chanel's scents, Cuir de Russie would be one of the top three. It is a wonderful leathery fragrance with a floral note.

I tried a sample of this and it smelled like old socks. Somewhat musty and dirty, worse than cigerettes. I usually love Chanel, like Coco and No. 5, but this one was not a winner.

Smooth, buttery soft, supple lambskin leather scent. Like a brand new coat that just cost you 5 paychecks + an arm and a leg + years of guilt. Redeems itself by sending you to the heights of...

another great Chanel classic - I love the powdery drydown with the hint of leather - find it feminine and rather sexy.

Starts out as a slightly odd combination of sweet and smoky, but in the dry down, a lot of the sickly sweetness fades and one is left with a beautiful, powdery, slightly masculine smoky perfume. ...
