The leather of Cuir Beluga delicate, velvety and soft, without sharp animalistic notes typical for leather fragrances.

Cuir Beluga is a very nice vanilla-heavy fragrance. Itms got that hint of "cola" smell in there. A little warning, though. This vanilla type of scent is very common among niche brands. So make sure to sample other similar scents.
