Agar Aura's first Chypre parfum, Oud Chypre
the leather notes, was more of a woody Chypre. Cuir Chypre
on the other hand, features an aged Indian oud with a prominent
sweet leather note that gives a whole new meaning to the term
Bright and crisp top notes of frankincense, pine scotch and rose
release into heart notes of aged patchouli and oak moss. Indian
and Indonesian oud form an utterly dark and jungly base.
Cuir Chypre employs the finest natural aromatic ingredients that
bequeath it a complex and broad scent spectrum that not only
encompasses what other Chypre fragrances offer, but in fact
brings something new to the table, thanks to the naturally
complex oud oils at its heart.
Whereas our Oud
camouflages a heavy oud dosage with its
bright opening notes, Cuir Chypre is quite the opposite. With
nearly half the composition comprising of very potent oud oils,
the top and heart notes quickly evolve into the heavy hitting
base of oud and oak moss.
After our Kinam
, this attar is the closest you'll get to a
straight oud experience – but within the construct of a classic
French parfum genre. Were it released by a renowned French
perfumery house, Cuir Chypre would achieve an instant cult
Note: since only ingredients derived
from natural sources were used, natural oakmoss (a crucial
part of classic chypre fragrances) is part of this blend.
Allergies to oakmoss are mild and extremely rare, but do
I'm actually sampling all of the mukhallats I recently picked
up from you this week. Today was Cuir Chypre and it was
fantastic! You know, the description said there was some rose
and another floral I think and I didn't smell it all day but
by near end of the working day I was smelling something I
thought was someone else smelling good but I'm still smelling
here and now and can't believe that 12 hours later there are
still notes coming through. This is one cool concoction!
THIS is the chypre I was looking for. While oud chypre was
very nice as well, it smelled predominately of oakmoss on me
and continue to do so in a linear fashion. Cuir chypre has
such depth and I think it's the mix of Indian oud and leather
that makes it so. The leather and indian oud balanced so well
with the oakmoss... You did a fantastic job with this one.
I'm not big on leathers but this ... this stuff is gorgeous.
The blend of Indian oud & oakmoss is fantastic; it really
mellows out the more ... shall we say, non-Western ...
elements of the oud's scent profile.
