SOTD: Chanel Cuir de Russie
The weather is warmer and days are longer than the last time I wore it, and that produces a substantial change. The top notes are sharper and higher-pitched, and the animalic notes are less delightful. (Bringing me back to the Vole Theory.) And it's strong - one spray is producing a substantial leather and iris cloud around me, making Chanel's monster bottle size even more problematic.
But I still want it. It's really only a matter of time.
(Who's that in the photo, you ask? Ernest Beaux, the original perfumer.)
