In 1927, she worked with him to create CUIR DE RUSSIE. Through long musky, smoky notes, it evokes a wild yet elegant world, with its scent of leather boots tanned by birch bark and the essence of Virginia tobacco. An exquisite scent from the LES EXCLUSIFS DE CHANEL collection.
Cuir de Russie, or Russian leather was a theme modern at the end of the 19th century. Many perfume houses were creating
perfumes for women who smoked cigarettes. Today exclusive, Chanel's Cuir de Russie was created in 1924. The fragrance is
provocative and shocking, and that exactly was its purpose, because it was created for a woman who dared to smoke
cigarettes in public. It was a kind of encouragement and approval, because at that time a woman who smoked was a
scandalous and inconceivable symbol of emancipation.
The composition starts with aldehydes moderated by mild nectar of classical trio – rose, jasmine and ylang-ylang. The ending
comes as smoky, animalistic note of dark leather. The main notes are: orange blossom, bergamot, mandarin, sage, iris,
jasmine, rose, ylang-ylang, cedarwood, vetiver, styrax, leather, amber and vanilla.
The nose behind this fragrance is Ernest Beaux
