Cuir Cordoba, Keiko Mecheri
Keiko Mecheri's Cuir Cordoba - This is such a perfectly glorious thing. Imagine the cushiest, most supple pair of leather driving gloves ever to grace your fingers and you'll be close. Add to that the wispiest of bergamot and violet accords and you'll be ever so much closer.
It comes as no surprise that the fellows love this one, but guess what. So do the girls. Particularly those girls in every crowd who seem to draw the attention of the entire room without any effort whatsoever...somehow we also associate this one with way-too-strong espresso, cigarette smoke (stale and fresh) and a teensy bit of a hangover. Think Theda Bara, Gale Sondergaard...Rooney Mara?
Black violet, bergamot, elemi, suede accord, patchouli, sandalwood, benzoin
