Perfumer: Julien Rasquinet.
A rich resinous leather blend, quite slow-mo and elegant in its action. Hints of chocolatey immortelle now and then.
The Sniff on Cuir Velour: "Suede is one of those strange scents that in real life is absolutely gorgeous, but when used in perfumery its often overdone and loses all the gentle nuance it has in reality. Not here though. This scent hits it exactly right, giving you just enough to satisfy the desire to smell leather, but not so much that you get sick of it. This is handled so well that Cuir Velours has immediately gone to the top of our list of fragrances that use leather notes. It is just beautiful." Read full review.
