Just Wasn't for Me
I wanted to try something different is all. I just don't think a leathery smell works for me. I think it fit the description fine, and I'll use it up, but it's not my thing.
I really like the smell
Smelled as described.
I Was So Wrong
I expected to love this based on the notes listed and my preferences. Even YouTube reviews compared it to things that I know and love, so I thought that this was a no-brained. I live in SC and it is so hot that when I got it, I thought maybe it was super strong from being shipped in the heat. Checked again each day for a week...nope...it smells like a super strong, rich old white lady perfume. I’m pretty sure my great-grandmother had a “formal” fragrance just like this that she reserved for funerals, so it was vaguely familiar. Maybe I’ll try to wear it again one day to see if I’m being too harsh, but I doubt it. I so wanted to love this.
A little off
Something weird about this one. I thought maybe it was just strong but not my favorite.
Every where I went people told me I smell so good and I need more of this in my life and it last long I couldn’t smell it but everyone else did and that’s the kind of fragrances I like
I love this perfume fragrance especially it’s not to loud but just right
Nothing to add !!
too strong for me
I didnt like it....wife said it wasn't bad for reference I am a big Burberry and and confessions of a rebel fan
It has a sour smell to it
Just don’t like it it’s nothing that I expect I will not make a purchase of this
This scent 'hit' me in the right places, it's strong, spicy and woodsy at the same time. It reminds of my step mom and carnival holidays, growing up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It's an uplifting fragrance for me.
I think the cedarwood scent i can't handle I'm going to try and change that try scents without cedarwood
really enjoyed it earthy leather smell. long lasting
was floored by how good it smells. even though I did not order this one.
Same as the English laundry. Smells great. I love it
Elegant, Manly Scent!
I love the smell of this one, fresh, elegant yet not to strong to be formal but pretty good smell.
Smells amazing !
Arbour et epice
Delicious woods and spice. This one is bracing at first but powders down to a very warm, sexy scent.
One squirt strong scent
I like musky and this has got it
Nice fragrance, great for summer. However the scent fades very quickly.
Rich, complex, modern oud!
Wow. Cuirs is exactly what I hoped it would be: a deep, rich, multi-faceted oud scent with a modern twist. Woodsy and clean in all the right ways; smells equally delicious on me and my husband. It's slightly powdery, but again, in a clean and fresh way that doesn't keep it from being versatile- not the least bit old-fashioned, but sharp and crisp. This is definitely a winner for me!
was not expecting such a great smell.
Warm and sexy
I really enjoy the warm woody and leather like notes in this perfume. It's sexy and in that way a man can smell right after getting out of the shower. There's a hint of sweetness close to vanilla that's lovely with the woody and leathery dry down.
This was too masculine smelling. It was hottible and game me thenworst headeache
smells like summer
has a strong smell but very nice
Love this scent!
Perfectly aligns with my scent preferences!!
I do like the scent
It could be a little bit better if it lastesred
A++. Definitely a winner. Very unisex. Very subtle.
it was a 1 at first
When I first put on this scent, it was so strong and bitter. As I wore it it, the smell was less pungent but still not great.
smells just like curio noirs opia
Not really that great
This scent is trying too hard. There are much better leather based ones out there that don’t try to whack you over the head. More masculine than feminine, but very strong...the leather scent is not that delicious soft one of fine goods, it is more of a cheap fake car freshener scent.
Favorite fragrance I've ever worn!
Complement beast. Such an incredibly well blended leather based fragrance.
Best scent I've tried in years
Nice winter fragrance
Oh myyyyy love
This had a weird old man 1980's reminiscence. I just didn't like it. It smelled bad. It was very odd. Like a man who just has no idea what women like. I couldn't stand it for more than the one minute I had it in my hand. I gave it away on the spot. Terrible.
More masculine in my opinion
This has turned into my favorite sent. It is not overpowering. I like the smoothness of the sent. I quickly bought a bottle online after trying this one. I recommend to anyone that likes a warm, earth tone.
Nice fall/spring scent
A comfortable luxury.
I love the scents as they meld together.
Uhhh while it sounds like a fun combo:
Cigars & Leather - this accompaniment was way too manly with zero femininity for this girl. I love seductive scents but this one took it way too far - so far, that I can imagine being dateless for the rest of my life. heee heeee.
Kind of a sickly smell. Don't love it.
Awesome, long lasting
balmy wood & resinous leather. In the same realm as Laudano Nero and Black Afghano, but not as dense. moderate sillage and longevity. Hits the spot when I am in the mood. happy to have this one
Yeah, I'd buy it!....
Light enough to be subtle, subtle enough to be noticed....Not overpowering...
Love the scent long lasting and smells great. This one for me had a first smell of a light sandlewood then a leather.
i cannot get enough of this perfume. complex and delicious. has great staying power. has a nice spice woodsy feel with a touch of floral to round out the spices. received so many compliments and i just sniff myself all day. layers really great with other fragrances as well.
18 to 24
Great. My girlfriend loves it
Reminds me of something
This is a great cologne that reminds me of better things. I can’t put my finger on it but can say it’s a favorite
Didn't like the scent
55 to 64
A compliment-getter. Light leather that lasts.
25 to 34
This is a more affordable alternative to Nasomatto Black Afgano. The scent is not exactly a dupe but has a lot in common. It is a perfume with leather as the main note. It is not loud and I think can be worn by both men and women as a daily scent. Not fruity or sweet at all and I don't think that somebody around you will suffocate. It does not last long on me (the Afgano does not either) but will still leave a subtle smell on my hair in the evening. Will definitely need to take with me to work to renew. This won't become a signature scent for me and I am not going for a full bottle but I will wear a decant with pleasure.
I love this scent. It lasts about 9-12+ hours with eight sprays (neck, chest, shoulders, forearms), has great projection and sillage. Its a fruity, airy scent matches to a woody base of mosses and musk. Very unique and classy fragrance for a fashionable and modern man. Definitely recommended.
Men, this one is for you
"Unisex" but very masculine leaning. If you've ever tried Dior Sauvage Parfum (not the edp or the original, specifically the parfum) this smells somewhat similar to it, but without the citruses. You just get fresh, deep woodsy scents with some leather and patchouli. Lasts forever and smells great. I'm definitely gifting this to my boyfriend, it's fantastic.
55 to 64
When first applied, it reminded me of scented toilet paper. After a while it smelled like something my grandma would have worn.
Now I want to get scented toilet paper , and I've not smelled this
35 to 44
Seems like a generic, patchouli/spice fragrance. Nothing special, nothing stands out.
Old Lady Smells/vibes
I literally said it out loud...what the f*|> is this!! If you want to sofficate those around you and want to smell like an old white lady, then this is all you. I love Scentbird but it really sucks for us comsumers when we are stuck with thr 15$ bottle of frangrsnce-im never going to put this on nor would I want to give as a gift. Point made- it's gross don't buy it
35 to 44
amazing, smooth smoky oud and spices
amazing, smooth smoky oud and spices
35 to 44
Just my type. It is not over powering. It is a warm inviting scent.
35 to 44
This is a perfect Summer, Fall or Day time cologne, The Scent lasts long and its not too strong for the work place, also a great summer vacation cologne. Thank you!
45 to 54
smells like scented toilet paper :/
45 to 54
MEH!!! No, really, MEH!!!
I, on my own, would give this only one star, but, BUUUUT, the wife actually likes it. Me, I think it smells like someone poured a bottle of Robitussin on my shirt. My gag reflexes kick in when I first spray this on. So why do I continue to wear it if I find it so awful? As I said, the wife likes it. As the expression goes, "Happy Wife, happy life!" I had to look this up on other sites to make sure I wasn't the only one that felt like this was a huge MISS for a high end. =( So, YMMV.
65 or over
Is this for men? It said on the bottle it was a perfume I want a mans Cologne
Was Very disappointed you sent me a woman’s perfume instead of a man’s cologne
It says unisex.
if it said parfume then it might just last longer, if its perfume then like someone else said its just unisex
Parfum, not perfume. It refers to the concentration of oils. Liquor is the same, but with alcohol ...Alcohol proof is a measure of the content of ethanol in an alcoholic beverage.
its the same cologne that you ordered, its just a unisex scent. so it may be branded as perfume, but its just as much a cologne
35 to 44
Nice but Powdery
I want to love this but it's a smidge too powder-y.
45 to 54
Starts strong - dries to a simmering warmth
At first spray I didn’t think I would like Cuirs - but the drydown is wonderful. It starts with a heavy leather and dries to an incency warmth. It has a church incense smell with a little more sweetness and I absolutely love it!
Although "incency" isn't a word and "shimmering warmth" is difficult to understand (maybe not for a fairy or pixie), I still liked your review - thanks. :D
35 to 44
Not a fan at all
I did not like this scent at all. It is strong and hard to tolerate.
35 to 44
Horrid and musty
This smells musty and dirty. There is nothing appealing about it. It smells like drugstore men’s cologne. The one star? It has incredible staying power. I can’t get it off.
18 to 24
This is has become my sons favorite cologne. It is an amazing scent! Very masculine. He keeps asking when I'm gonna get him another one.
A good scent that gets better the longer you wear it. A good date night fragrance. Not my first choice but good.
Very strong lasts all day, Love it
I love this fragrance! It is so warm and comforting, it smells so fresh and clean. I feel like you can wear this every day for any occasion.
Cuirs is a most interesting leather
Very unique for a leather fragrance. Just as woody as leathery. Has powdery notes and spiciness. Lasts very well; strong. Very unisex.
Old lady, powdery
I’m sorry, I’m not a fan of this. It is strong and not in a good way. Powdery, old lady. I’m going to remove the maker of this perfume from my queue. I had other scents.
Didn't like smells too much like a perfume for women
Close second to Oddity
Like another reviewer said, this may be my new favorite, right behind Oddity. The leather is comforting and not overbearing, the woods are just right when so many go soapy on me.
This is a perfect winter scent. It’s warm and cozy, like a soft blanket on an old leather couch in front of a fire on a cold night.
A favorite from this House
To me this is all about sandalwood and oud with some leather thrown in. It's earthy and woody, yes, but the leather here is more on the animalic side and reminds me much more of sweaty skin than a leather jacket. Having said that, it's still a classy fragrance, not so provocative that you couldn't wear it with a suit. The (presumably synthetic) sandalwood used here is one of my favorites and it does, indeed, smell a bit like Play-Doh, as I saw someone else mention. But I love the smell of Play-Doh so this is a positive, if you ask me. :)
I love this. It is now my #2, 1st being Oddity. Curis is like a walk through a dark forest but you can see the light above the tree tops. Long lasting, turns into a fresh clean skin scent hours after original sprays.
Not bad, but not WOW
This fragrance is not anything super significant. It is a common scent with hints of play dough and a baby powder dry down that last hours. I want more spice from it, but the spice and light oud is here and gone quickly. I would say the opening is the best part of this fragrance. Definitely not a bad scent, just not outstanding.
I love this fragrance and get many compliments when I wear it.
A combination of Joop! Homme and Play-doh
That first spray has a punch of alcohol-y chemical-y smell which dissipates quickly. It reminds me of Joop! Homme except that it doesn't seem as sweet or candy-ish and a little more spicy. In the background there's a subtle chemical smell that wants to be earthy but strongly reminds me of Play-doh. I like Cuirs but I would rather wear the Joop! and reminisce about fun times in the 90s.
Spicy Woody Oud
My wife likes this on me, and that's generally good enough for me. It's a nice spicy woody oud scent, and it does perform quite well. I'll be honest, I really hate Palo Santo from this house (it smells nothing like the wood), but I was pleased with this one. If my wife keeps complimenting this one, I may have to consider a full bottle. However, I will say it probably won't be ideal for work because it's too strong (in a corporate environment).
I tried this once and all it smells like to me is baby powder. I cannot abide this fragrance.
Smells very good, but it does not last
God that's strong
I'm so shocked that there are so many positive reviews for this scent. It's far too strong for me. It has a vaguely woody/leathery scent but it's also very very sweet. I found the scent so overpowering that I had to shower to completely rid myself of the scent. I sprayed it in the air to show a friend and she had to leave the room. Not a fan.
This scent is pleasant enough. However, when I sprayed it on to my wrist it seemed to almost immediately dissipate. It was like my skin just absorbed it and there was nary anything left to smell. I can't give Cuirs a great review. I did give it to my son to try and he likes it. While it contains notes that I prefer in a perfume, it has more of a masculine flair than I want.
Very clean smelling. Very inviting. Hints of vanilla, lavender, and leather. Nice on a summer night with a button up shirt or a casual tshirt.
Aunt Marie's Perfume
Unfortunately not my favorite. Kinda reminded me of the perfume worn by your Aunt who comes to visit, and knocks you out with her scent when she hugs you. And days later your still smell her when you walk into the living room.
Heavy and Old-fashioned (not in a good way)
Really not what I'd expected. It's very heavy from first spray and throughout the day. It reminds me of an old-timey, dapper mans scent.... you know the kind... like grandpa doused himself in every Sunday before church. There's a familiarity to the classic old spice aftershave, though it's a bit heavier and not nearly as crisp. It left me with a headache.
Heavier version over Amouage Journey Man
Very haven't animalic. Lots of character and manly but not for everyone! Would not buy full bottle.
ok but not great
Nice enough scent but seems more fitted to spraying on the sheets, then wearing as it fades quickly on the skin...
Very nice for a date
If your going out on a date and going to be close and personal to someone this is a good scent to put on. The sweet cinamon scent gives of a comforting mood and it get balanced nicely with the leather. Not really a daily cologne that youd put on a sunny day but rather something for a summer afternoon at a quite place with a special someone
Great scent. Got a lot compliments and left lasting impression about how good I smelled. Guys try this one out.
The scent is heavy and flat. Smoky, not crisp. It smells strongly of leather and nagarmotha. I did not smell patchouli or cedar. It lingered after I sprayed it and for me it was unpleasant. This is not a feminine scent. I sprayed it lightly on my boyfriend believing the strong leather scent would be more pleasing on him. It delivered the same aromas on him as it did on me. He left home for a few hours and after returning he let me know he did not like the fragrance. He still occasionally caught the fragrance and it was not anything he wanted to be wearing.
This is my first acquaintance with this brand. I'm totally ecstatic. Sweet, woody, leathery, and very exhilarating. Complimentary.
Definitely leans more on the feminine side
I'm a huge fan of unisex scents, but this one definitely is not a very masculine scent. That said, it still works. First spray left me a bit confused, as I wasn't getting too much leather. Actually had a slight play doh undertone, will be interested to see if anyone agrees. Though, like most strong scents, give it time on your skin and it warms up with a nice powdery undertone. It is certainly unique, it works well in an office setting. I've found that this one last longer on clothing rather than on skin, oddly enough. My day to day jacket carries this scent for at least three days after and doesn't get stale like some scents on clothes. Worth a try, but not my favorite.
Woody and spicy then softer
Woody and spicy then softer. Last pretty well too. Very different - I love it
comes very strong, leaves very delicate
I like it a lot and has a strong beginning but leaves subtle notes.. no real complaints but it's noticeable
This almost has a masculine scent to it at first. After a while, it sets and smelled like a fresh powder/floral smell. It didnt last as long as I hoped but I love it while it lasts!
Cuirs is a scent that was recommended because I LOVE the Michael Kors Sexy Amber and I guess it fell within the same scent "family". When I first tried it, it was very cedar-y/pine-y. But that faded after I wore it for awhile and it faded into a softer, warmer woody scent. Its a little masculine but I like more musky, manish scents. Id recommend this for others if they dislike flowery, fruity scents, like me.
Really nice. Smoky and rich without being so intense that it gives me a headache. Not so penetrating that you offend everyone around you who hates patchouli, but thrilling up close. Surprising light sweetness as it fades.
I LOVE this scent! It lasts very well and is very unique. My favorite so far!!
This has a replusive smell. Made my wife dry heave. I did a 3 month trial to see how I liked the service, with this being my first delivery. Im contemplating cancelling the next two months and asking for a refund.
Definitely not what i was expecting ...
To me it smells like an old lady inside of a old dusty church. I'm a huge fan of sandalwood and leather fragrances which is why i picked this one but this is just terrible in my opinion. This is not for men this is for mature women that wear big hats and go to church on Sundays. 2/10 for me and i definitely wont be getting this again. Hope this helped!
Nice, but not what I was expecting
I'm a girl who likes bold, unexpected fragrances, typically unisex. I love leathers, and incense notes, but this one was a little all over the place. I get the leather, but it was a bit confusing with everything else going on. I was hoping for more sillage and longevity as well. Lasted on clothes, not on my skin at all after about an hour.
It isn't "The One", but it is one of the top ones!
I have been a member for 6 months. In this time I have received three phenomenal colognes, Cuirs is one of these. Cuirs is sneaky sexy, clean, and easy to wear anywhere. I fell in love the first time and never looked back. The best way to describe it is Cuirs is how I "want" to smell!
What are the other two “phenomenal” ones?
Perfect for all those who like warm woody oriental scents.
Thanks to the interaction of woods, amber, musk, oud and spices the scent remains mild as a whole, without losing its spiciness and vitality. The perfume is very long lasting on me. Over time, it becomes only softer.
I really like this. It's spicy, musky, and then there's a little hint of sweet at the end. It lasts a long time, too. I want to try this on my husband and see how he likes it.
Loved it! I got compliments everywhere I went. It's complex, smokey, and rich.
This was not good for me. Very musky and woody. I would not buy this fragrance at all.
I'M IN LOVE. This is what I imagine Jesus smells like. I HIGHLY recommend
I absolutely adore this. As soon as I smelled it I fell in love, sweet and musky at the same time. Amazing.
This was a great scent! Very strong & long-lasting...
Wow, this is a really nice fragrance. I do see similarities in the Black Afgano but I own both & did a side by side comparison & of course Black Afgano is king. Almost identical upon initial spray but after about 5 minutes Cuirs goes in a sweeter direction & it doesn't last nearly as long as the Afgano but good God what an incredible fragrance in its own right. This also reminds me of 8 & Bob's Egypt which I also own. The projection is incredible at around 8 feet & longevity is roughly 6 hours on my skin. Definitely fbw.
A great leather scent, although I get a lot of woods.
If you don't want to pay 170.00 for a one ounce bottle of Nasommato Black Afgano, go for this. Almost identical for a lot less per ounce. Fantastic scent!!!
I only smell one note and one note only: sandalwood. If i wanted to smell only like sandalwood I would save my money and just use my pure essential oil. This perfume is not balanced, and today a coworker literally told me i smell like a "dirty hippy"..... not exactly what I was going for. Also, for someone who does want to smell only like sandalwood, this doesnt last long.
Very nice unisex scent. It had a bite to it 8n the beginning and wasn't sure if I'd like it. Once the initial jolt died down it was wonderful. I'm a hippie bohemian kind of girl and this scent was great.
This fragrance is very similar to the very popular Black Afgano. I much prefer this much more affordable interpretation. To me this comes off as a very elegant, mature, and masculine fragrance.
