Cuir d'Iris by Parfumerie Generale
This is plush leather from the get go. The opening is a sophisticated aroma and for once, the old chair comparison is accurate. For me, there is hint of iris and a fleeting, light smoke note. These compliment the accord and enhance an already dominant leather.
After about 10 minutes, an amber starts creeping into the accord adding a touch of sweet resin to the leather and bolstering the insence. There is a very light dusting of powder present along with a thin mocha note. The drydown for me is a leather-amber duo with a nod from this phantom mocha aura. I admit to not getting woods or vetiver, but I don't feel shortchanged at all. They are listed, but no matter.....Cuir d'Iris is upscale leather with a nice amber and a nod of gourmand. This is a very good release.
