Hello beauties! I have some fragrance reviews for you today! I'll try and spread them out a bit, since I've tried quite a few new ones lately, but I'll do two today.
And before I forget, here's the coat I got yesterday! I love it so much!
All right, so today is a Serge Lutens review day. I've recently tried a few new scents from the brand, but I need to retest one because I don't remember it all that well.
So first off we have Cuir Mauresque.
I'm not sure why I'd never seen this scent when browsing Fragrantica or sites that sell SL, but I was buying some samples on Surrender to Chance and this one came in a set with two other scents I wanted to try, and I got super excited because anything with "cuir" in the title gets me excited. (Cuir meaning leather, and in this case "Moorish Leather".)
Now, I'm not sure why, but this smells very familiar to me. It oddly reminds me a lot of Misia from Chanel. It has this fruitiness to it, and it's quite sweet. It's primarily composed of leather (of course) as well as myrrh, incense, caraway, and amber. The drydown is definitely a standard incense-and-resin drydown. Sweet and smoky. Again, it's a very familiar drydown, but I can't place it.
I really do enjoy this scent. Would I buy a full bottle? Probably not. But I definitely like the scent, especially in this chilly weather.
