Cuir: Les Nombres d'Or, Mona di Orio
Mona di Orio's positively gorgeous Cuir Eau de Parfum, from the LES NOMBRES D'OR COLLECTION: Intrigued and attracted by this aesthetic theory, Mona di Orio imagined how she could revisit some influential classics of perfumery. Searching for the perfect proportions to reach a melodious harmony.Using the best raw materials, beautiful ingredients, precious gifts blessed with divine proportions. Close your eyes, open your nose and follow their mysterious and sensual �sillages�.
Launched in 2010 by Ms. Di Orio, here she's given us a leather scent that so rarely comes our way--- it puts us in a state of delightful shock. Opening with a whiff of Gauloise-like smoke it quickly becomes toasted spices and sweet absinthe before the appearance of the leather. Neatly straddling the line between biker and Birkin bag, the leather is almost carnal in its depth. In these days of anodyne scents and trans-fat free lives this is a welcome walk on the wild side that on a man would be wonderful. On a woman? The only way to put it: Cuir is ruthlessly chic.
