Cuir Cordoba

Eau de Parfum

by Keiko Mecheri

The Scoop
Les gantiers were the glove makers of 18th century Europe and the grandfathers of modern perfumery. In order to soften the scent of tanned leather, les gantiers commonly soaked animal hides in blends of fragrant oils making them more agreeable to the delicate hands of ladies and gentlemen accustomed to a life of refined luxury (think Marie Antoinette). Floral, herbal, and resin compositions mingled with the smoky scent of skin leaving behind a sophisticated perfumed trace on the hands of the wearer.

Cuir Cordoba is like the softest, most supple suede. Seductive black violet introduces the perfume; braced by a subtle citrus note of bergamot, and softened by powdery benzoin resin. The floral-fruity combination lingers comfortably in mid air for a while until it eventually settles into the most comfortable velvety suede. It is the scent of a hand remembering the soft driving glove, which once traced the fingers’ contours. Luxuriously tactile and equally gorgeous on a man or woman: Cuir Cordoba purrs utter sophistication.

For Christmas my husband presented me with a pair of Fratelli Orsini deerskin driving gloves. This fragrance is the tactile equivalent of slipping my hands into those handsome gloves. In fact, I ordered Cuir Cordoba unsniffed and unsampled based merely upon the description provided by LuckyScent. It made me vividly recall the light, pleasant aroma that would linger upon my fingers after driving with the supple leather pressed against my skin. This perfume is an amplification of that subtle, intimate scent. Creamy, plush and poised.

I'm not a hug fan of Keiko (and I've tried, really I have), but this is one of her best for sure. The violet is fruity, the suede soft and subtle, and it has an intimate unwashed (but not unclean) quality that makes it seem like you've been wearing it for ages already. There's no dry down - it just gets straight to business.

Ah, there is a fight I must deal with! Reve en Cuir is now duking it out with Cuir Cordoba as my favorite leather fragrance. If an impartial referee were called in, Reve en Cuir would probably win. Since Cuir Codoba is almost as beautiful (not to mention the price point difference) I think my next purchase will be the Cordoba. While the Reve en Cuir is more complex and longer lasting, I'm an easy guy to please. Love it!
