I received four samples from theperfumed court the other day - finally they arrived!
Cuir de Russie - oh!! I smell the leather. Wow, I like this smell. With Bois des Iles it is a pleasant floral, but doesn't wow. Coco -ahhhhh! No. 19 - this was the Chanel I wore in my early 20s because I couldn't stand No. 5 (I guess I have always disliked aldehydes even before I knew the term). A little more depth that the other at the mid phase, and of course the nostalgia from having worn this scent nearly 30 years ago.
Coco stays the longest on my skin. In fact when I got up this morning, I could still smell it on me. It end up as a warm fragrance, and very comforting. Of all four, I like Coco the best. But I do love the leather smell of Cuir de Russie, but I'm not that woman to wear CdR - she is much more posh than I'll ever be! I need, now, to find a leather fragrance that knocks my socks off.
I should do a test of Coco and Coco Mademoiselle together and see what happens.
Oh this isn't very detailed (no perfumers or notes) - sorry folks - getting ready for my husband to come back from CA - he has been gone three weeks - so I'm a little distracted! ;)
