We’re enjoying a much-needed rainy and cool spell here, so I decided test out a few more scents in the leather family, a note that I’ve only recently come to appreciate.
In previous posts, I’ve shared my fondness for SL’s Daim Blond, Cuir de Lancome and Bottega Veneta, and I also like Caron’s Tabac Blond (many thanks to the lovely perfumistas who sent me samples of many of the scents in this post). So I figured it was high time to branch out a bit more.
Today I have the new MPG Cuir Fetiche on one wrist (very lovely, soft, with a nice touch of sweetness). Musette was quite smitten with this one and did a post on it a while back. And on the other wrist, Knize Ten (equally good but a tad more masculine, and quite low on staying power and sillage). At times this one reminded a bit of Bulgari Black.
Next up, I need to snag a sample of Chanel’s Cuir de Russie and give it a re-try. I originally sniffed it when the Les Exclusifs first broke, but it wasn’t my cup of tea. My horizons have expanded over the years, so perhaps now …
So, what say you: What are your favorites? Which other leathers are worth a try?
