Brand Christian Dior
The house of Christian Dior made Cuir Cannage as an encomium to intriguingly delightful smell of inside of a leather bag. The aroma that triggers everyone’s childhood desire of smelling mom’s bag; a comfy powdery touch of satin inside, slightly stained with smell of face powder and other maquillage materials, plus sharp smell of leather of outside. Dior approaches to this particular smell borrowing traditional tannery characteristics of early 20th century’s brutal leather fragrances, and resign it with Dior’s elegant floralcy.
Fans of quintessential leather and who appreciate powdery tar-like leather fragrances take note. Cuir Cannage is by far one of the most loyal references to the essential beauty of leather at its very beginning. A reminiscent of grandeur of Art Deco epoch. Fragrance’s resolute opening demonstrates a touch of astringent leather, plus handful of green orange blossom and jasmine, that underline Cuir Cannage is not everyone’s favorable leather. It’s fascinatingly bitter and devoiding any clue of sweetness. From there iris, warm breeze of ylang ylang, and sensual rose ornament leather with powdery floral and soapy features.
Cuir Cannage is a steady fragrance in term of longevity. It performs much higher on skin that on fabric. Its great tenacity guarantees and arm-length projection makes it a great leather choice for cold weather and formal outfit.
The entire composition is dominated by leather accord that is refreshed with notes of orange blossom and softened by floral tones of rose, jasmine and iris. There are also accords of ylang-ylang, birch and cade.
My overall experience with Scentsplit was great, the packaging was extremely good, and the shipment was wery fast. But,I don't like Cuir Cannage, the fragrance smell weird on my skin. I like Mitzah a lot, unfortunately it's discontinue. Also, I like La Colle Noir, but the smell leaning a bit feminine on my skin.
