Cuir Noir was inspired by the art of Arabian tanners. "Leather is an art. From Cordoba, Spain to the borders of the Atlas Mountains. With a wine patina, it takes the name of “cordovan”. Tattooed with gold, it is called “maroquin”." The perfume composition consists of Australian Sandalwood, Rose essence, Coriander, Nutmeg (in the top); Leather, Smoky Guaiac and Oud (in the heart); Tahitian Vanilla absolute and Benzoin balm (in the base). The fragrance is available in the 100ml bottle size. Cuir Noir was launched in 2011. The nose behind this fragrance is Nathalie Lorson.Notes

It was nicely masculine without being too leathery. I enjoy it a lot.
