Cuiron description

Leather scents are a must-have for a serious collection. Nothing compares to the impact, the sensuality, the in-your-face boldness of leather, and it’s that “do or die” quality that also makes them the best accessory for almost any profile you’re going for. Not only that, but leather scents have so many different looks themselves, that it’s nearly impossible to not match one with your favorite wardrobe picks.

Helmut Lang’s Cuiron is a leather fragrance that leans more on the suede side of the spectrum. It offers a brushed leather texture crafted from a suede accord in the heart, backed by carrot seed, pink pepper and cassia in the top notes. The suede isn’t soft, however; this is a leather scent meant as a lived-in, well-worn, and road-weary fragrance – it’s got mileage on it.

The drydown continues down the dusty road with a blend of resins, ambrette seed and cedar that stiffen the suede until you can feel the perfume nearly start to creak and snap, almost as if you’re breaking in the scent like you would a new leather coat.

If you need recommendations for what would be best worn with this scent, Cuiron’s lived-in appeal will work equally well with casual looks or a more dramatic profile. It’s ideally matched with a white T-shirt, jeans and a black leather jacket of course, but a tweed coat and khakis also show it off well. If you live for vintage clothing, Cuiron’s bone-dry and roughed-up texture will elevate any retro look, especially if your jones is for early 1970’s gear.

As far as who can wear it, Cuiron works fine for both sexes, and the longevity and sillage are both on the softer side. Cuiron may need to be sprayed more than once to get the most out of it for all-day wear, depending on your personal chemistry.

If you don’t currently have a leather scent in your rotation, Helmut Lang’s Cuiron is a versatile, low-key and deeply textured option that is a fine choice for a first-ever leather scent. It’s worn-in appeal will match with casual as well as dressed-up outfits, and it’s hidden story will come out chapter by chapter as you wear it with different looks. For leather scent fans, especially those who prefer suede over biker styles, this is a fantastic every day go-to choice.

I love this scent. Reminds me of a leather smell. Rich and earthy. A unisex scent. Not flowery or fruity. A very unique smell.

I wish I could tell you what this smelled like on me but it dissipates as soon as I sprayed it on... Disappointing!! I bought it in the hopes of finding a unique unisex scent with a hint of leather and musk...

I like the subtle sweetness, woodiness, and cleanness of the scent. It's a sort of unisex scent, which I like. Reminds me of a library with leather chairs. I'm a fan.

I planned to love this scent based on reviews, but on me, there's nothing to it--it's gone in a minute. I can't get my nose into it. I wonder what all the excitement is about. I was intrigued by the suede topnote, but I guess I'll have to keep wondering what suede might mean to perfume.

Powdery, spicy and masculine. I didn't enjoy it enough to wear it. Smells like an old gentleman who tastes tea for a living might smell. Not bad, just more like a hotel room fragrance than a perfume.

I first smelled this when I had a subscription to birchbox and it smelled amazing, I have a hard time with some scents and my allergies and this one did not bother me at all, it will be interesting to see if it smells the same from this website.

It is certainly a male scent and not unisex. I gave it to my husband. Stays very close to the skin and is elegant, low key but sophisticated. None of the notes jumps out so it is wearable all day.

This was my very first perfume as a new member that i picked, because it seemed and sounded like it would be for me... It did not smell good at all and the smell does not last. No one ever complimented me or even noticed which was disappointing. Even my husband did not like the smell.. Very disappointed.

This one is a WOW. From the first spray I knew this was a winner. I can see where it is male or female scent and it does well to work for both. I enjoy the smell, and it last longer than most usually do. This one you can smell that it's a high end cologne.

I like this one a lot, and it seems to have good staying power. I sprayed twice this morning, and nine hours later I'm still able to smell it. I think it's powdery/soft and moderately masculine.

Ok so I tried this one out thinking it was a men's cologne but now I realized it is considered a unisex scent. It smells nice but definitely a more feminine scent. I gave it to my wife cause it definitely smells better on her. I'm a little disappointed with this scent but I suppose it's more my fault for not realizing it was a unisex scent which usually leans more feminine than masculine. Not sure how to rate this one since I wasn't happy with it but it doesn't smell bad. I recommend for a woman but not for a man......unless you want to smell like a woman, than this one's for you.

To the people giving this scent bad reviews, and those thinking of trying it out, please try to find a place to sample it before adding it to your queue, it is not for everyone. I personally love it, as I previously stated, but it's not for everyone. If anyone gets it, and doesn't like it, try trading it on the Scentbirdies Facebook, I'll keep an eye out for you 😊

Like review said below I'm so excited Cuiron is on Scentbird. I as well got this in my birchbox about a year ago and I absolutely fell in love with this. I dont know what it is, the leather smell but not overpowering, and some citrus notes. Very sensual and invigorating scent. Reminds me of some kind of elusive sexy man. I highly recommend if you love leather toned unisex cologne/perfumes.

Omg so excited scentbird has Cuiron! Received this as a sample in my Birchbox last year, and fell in love! It is unisex, so there's some masculinity to it. I just love it, definitely unique, and if it wasn't $185 for a full size, I'd definitely have it, think I'll just have to buckle down and buy it, that's how much I love it! I am not good at describing notes that are in it, so if you can find a place that has it, it is worth trying on!!!
