Knowing our love for leather, you will not be surprised to learn that this Luckyscent exclusive is built on the rich leather accord. The traditional citrusy top notes are given a modern twist by the inclusion of spices, cardamom and cloves, and oregano. Instead of being typically fresh, bergamot and lemon in Reve en Cuir have a delicately candied quality and set the tone of the composition with a rich, indolent feel. Cedar and patchouli enhance the smoky character of the leather while never allowing it to become tarry. Oakmoss and vetiver lend the scent that elegantly earthy character that we adore in classical masculine perfumes, while vanilla compliments the citrusy-spicy side of the blend, softening the sharp angles and making Reve en Cuir indeed dreamy and sensual. Spicy, smoky leather with a dangerously appealing soft side – we fall for that every time. Reve en Cuir was conceived as a masculine creation, but as every woman who has ever borrowed her boyfriend’s leather jacket knows – some rules are made to be broken.
Like the other fragrances in the Indult line, Reve en Cuir was developed by perfumer Francis Kurkdjian. The notes include bergamot, lemon, cardamom, oregano, clove, cedar, patchouli, oak moss, vetiver and crystallized vanilla.
Indult Reve en Cuir is $250 for 50 ml Eau de Parfum. It can be pre-ordered now for shipment later this month. Update: Reve en Cuir is a limited edition; only 250 bottles were made.
