Grand Cuir is a story told in four parts, and you'll know where it gets its name from the first spray: leather, leather, leather. The floral heart rises in part II as orange flower, lavender, geranium, and rose reach full bloom. In part II, cinnamon leaf oil and tarragon give a spicy kick to liven up the heart, and part IV is pure comfort in the form of soft woods and musk. Grand Cuir is a leather like no other: vintage but fresh, edgy then soft. Finally, a leather that is light enough that we can wear it in warmer weather? Yes, please. Notes include cistus labdanum, birch tar, clary sage, orange flower, lavender, carnation, rose, violet leaf, geranium, cinnamon leaf oil, tarragon, pine moss, sandalwood, patchouli, musk, and rosewood.
Parfums Rétro is the brainchild of creative director Jeffrey Dame, a veteran of the fragrance industry. Grand Cuir was developed in collaboration with perfumer Hugh Spencer.
Grand Cuir was designed to be a "leather with soul," for men and women.
