The Scoop

An opulent and boozy leather scent that is as velvety and luscious as a fresh peach. The leather note is smooth and supple, almost creamy, and is generously laced with rich tobacco, decadent rum and the dark, rough sweetness of the immortelle flower. At its best, as it is here, immortelle strikes us as the olfactory equivalent of a cat's purr – hints of ripe fruit and fresh hay wrapped in cozy, honeyed warmth. It winds itself around the leather and tobacco in the most delicious way. Incense and cistus labdanum add complexity, but with gentle brushstrokes. This is not a fragrance that startles and challenges – this is a fragrance that beckons, inviting you to take a long, luxurious stretch before settling into the couch. Rich and satisfying -- as comfortable to wear as your favorite worn-in leather jacket.

All Naomi Goodsir Parfums include an atomizer spray.

Here's what other people are saying about Cuir Velours...
I'm a sucker for sueded leather scents. While I like this, it smells literally nothing like the notes listed. On me, it smells like a really pretty iris-musk scent with a hint of warmth from perhaps the tobacco. But honestly: rum? Labdanum? Incense? Not getting any of those. It was definitely more leathery on paper. I got this sample while at the scent bar and I almost wonder if there's been a mixup w my sample! Nonetheless, whatever I'm smelling is gorgeous. The cool iris is perfect right now as we're settling into the hottest time of the year in San Francisco. Normally, iris is a little too cold for me, but I'm digging some of the warmer notes mixed in to take off the austere edges of the iris.

Cuir Velours is an Iris of the outdoors situated in a controlled campfire. Not sure if the pencil shavings at the end are intentional or not; I find the entire composition pleasant enough where I can highly recommend this fragrance to lovers of Iris.

One of my favorite leathers. The immortelle is lovely and the incense and cistus keep things in balance.

Amazing stuff. Reminds me of Serge Lutens Daim Blond without the apricot note. The essence of buttery suede, amplified. As rich as Donald Trump but much classier.

Another perfume I've tried based on great reviews. I am normally a floral fragrance lover but this is sensational and wonderful if you thinking of a foray into warm, leathery scents. The opening is quite tobacco-y and leathery, but this doesn't last too long. All I can smell now is rum, incense, musk and a slight sweetness that is reminding me of turkish delight? It has turned out to be a sweeter perfume than I'd anticipated (definitely the immortelle!) and I kind of wish the leather/tobacco smell lasted longer or was more prominent in the base notes. Great sillage and four hours in, reasonable lasting power. Am definitely considering the bottle!!

I'm not very good at identifying specific notes. Cuir Velours for me is more about a feeling rather than a particular scent. It surrounds my head with a very warm, soft, and comforting scent without broadcasting any particular note. The sillage is fantastic and, being a EDP, it lasts forever. I like Cuir Ottoman, but this is far superior.

Very similar to the no longer available Reve En Cuir by Indult. Love this and half the price!!

Gorgeous lightly sweet leather fragrance on my skin. Warm and lovely. Very wearable by woman and men that love something unique. I would say its a smooth leather resembling a little of PdE Cuir Ottoman.

This is a gorgeous perfume... Reminds me a bit of Serge Lutens Boxeuses and PdE Cuir Ottoman. Beautiful and easy to wear, with an elegant and inviting air. Love it!
