I have only tried the EDT - I bet the parfum is better. Anyway, you need to like smokey fragrances to like this, but if you do...it's a good one. Faintly floral, chic and sophisticated. For its...

I tried a sample of this and was shocked. It smelled just like a dirty ashtray sitting next to a vase of flowers. I understand that this one and Tabac Blond were created when women dared to smoke...

This perfume is the most warm and elegant I have bought. The website describes it only in French, but the most prevalent notes are balsam, leather, and ylang-ylang. It does not have the noxious...

Alright. I know it's not possible to marry a perfume, but, if I could, I'd probably choose Cuir de Russie. I swear, that Christian sent me enough samples of fabulous perfumes that I doubt I'll be...

Overall, I was disappointed in this scent as well as its packaging. It came in a very squatish, squarish bottle - not a pretty sight to behold in the first place, and not one I'd leave out for...

This is a smoky, smouldering leather scent reminiscent of Georges Sand in her provoking pants and a man's hat. Very Chanel, excellent and rare to smell on others. Caution: a little goes a long way!...

Cedar, vetiver and amber is what predominates in my nose when I smell this. And though I like all three, the way it is presented in Cuir de Russie is very different from the way I usually enjoy it....

Very nice leather scent. Reminds me a new leather jacket. Light notes of citrus and florals keep it from being masculine. Classy and understated. Very nice drydown. I love Chanel No. 19 which...
