A Sophisticated Contemporary Italian Leather.
I love the italian interpretation of leather, most specifically Odori’s Cuoio by Enzo Galardi.
One of my top fragrances ever, this Cuoio Fiorentino is giving it a run for its money.
Cuoio Fiorentino is so complex, so interesting, there are things going on in it well beyond the note tree.
The interactions between ingredients give it layers on layers of additional “smells”.
Definitely getting labdanum, with its spiraling dark depth and wisps of smoke and a little funk.
Patchouli and musk somehow give it a petroleum touch, along with a honey note, its not unlike 1740 in that regard.
This still is fairly soapy like Odori’s Cuoio, similarly spicy but there is a depth and complexity here that takes it much deeper.
Maybe a little less easy to wear.
The resins keep it smooth, working with the musk, veering away from a rougher, dirty leather like Eau d’Hermes.
It morphs around so much, going from fairly sprightly at the start, to deep, complex, dark and I’ll say it, THICK.
Its opaque and solid in smell.
Nothing airy here, and its certainly not light like some of the reviews on other websites imply.
This is the smell of a man that has his life together and enjoys a nice night out on the town with a nice peaty scotch.
Not a fragrance for the kids or the loud night clubbers.
This smells of the night, Bruce Wayne stuff.
Performance is best described as persistently medium volume from start to finish, not much of a fade away here.
Cuoio Fiorentino is a dark, menacing take on saddle styled leather fragrances like Hermes’ Equipage and Odori’s Cuoio. Its solid, persistent performance reinforces its excellence.
