1920. The opera hall is packed. Diaghilev is presenting his Ballets Russes. You are seated with a group of flamboyant Parisians in the front row. Wide-eyed, you watch Nijinsky and his soft leather boots. He leaps, he spins, he fills the stage with the bewitching scent of ylang-ylang, violet, and cinnamon enveloping a harmony of cade wood and styrax. You wish that this moment could last forever.

    Cuir de Russie - my walk through the forest 18 December 2016

    Its fragrance prepares me a peaceful walk in my forest that I love very much. Where I can listen to my soul together with the birds singing. I can not stop smelling its fine fragrance of wet oak moss thanks to the morning dew as well as the dark green leafs of violets inclusive of their dark purple blossoms with a very small quantity of fine gloves. I LOVE it!

    Cuir de Russie is a beautiful perfume of smoky violets, perfectly unisex and pleasant.

    A different kind of leather 12 December 2016

    I have always been very fond of perfumes that are kind of melancholic. I think true beauty always has a little bit of sadness in order to make it unforgettable. When I first smelled Cuir de Russie by Le Jardin Retrouvé I felt that it is exactly what I needed: a powdery and woody leather perfume wich I could wear with grace. Leathery perfumes do not always smell good on my skin, as I usually find them too harsh and masculine. In this case, though, the leather note was ilustrated differently. Think about a pair of gloves, made from the softest leather you have ever seen. The pair belongs to a beautiful lady who likes to go to the Opera and she has a secret admirer who likes to leave a bouquet of delicate violets in her lodge, just before she arrives to see a new play. As she takes the flowers in her delicate hands, their powdery smell impregnates the leather gloves. Who this man may be? She will never know, but she will always keep violet petals between the pages of her diary.

    An incredible “je ne sais quoi” 21 November 2016

    The leather is not heavy nor overdone but just perfect and has wonderful longevity on me. The sweetness of this perfume is not synthetic or sugary but has that special "Je ne sais quoi" that hovers tantalizingly just outside of your olfactory recognition. I definitely would wear this again!
