Cuir Chypre is Agar Aura's second classic chypre formulation. Our Oud Chypre was met with great love and acclaim. I decided to push the boundaries further with this new rendition.
Oud Chypre, despite the leather notes, was more of a woody Chypre with its Borneo oud core. Cuir Chypre features a fantastic Indian oud with a prominent sweet leather note that gives a whole new meaning to the term 'leather chypre'.
Bright and crisp top notes of bergamot and rose release into heart notes of Indian oud and Lignum Vitae. Aged patchouli and plenty of oakmoss form an utterly dark and jungly base.
Cuir Chypre employs only 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 Indian oud at its heart.
This is a Chypre that Coty himself would have been blown away by.
Please note that 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 exist.
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
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.
