"Moorish. When the Moors were in Cordoba, this is how leather was scented: on acacia bark, the hides were tanned."

The fragrance's background 

Conceived by Serge Lutens as a collection of iconic fragrances, the design of Gratte-ciel evokes the aesthetics of the New York skyline in the 20/30s. Perfected in lacquered black, with edges as sharp as the tip of a Chrysler Building, this iconic bottle draws its influences from Art Deco to embody a new modernity, symbolizing the avant-garde of a style at its peak. 

Here is the olfactory description of Cuir Mauresque by Serge Lutens 

Top notes :

Cumin, Clove, Almond The opening of the fragrance is spicy and warm with notes of cumin and clove. Almond adds a subtle touch of sweetness, creating an intriguing balance between spice and more delicate notes. 

Heart notes :

Leather, Orange Blossom, Immortelle The heart of the fragrance is dominated by leather, a main note that gives the scent its distinctive character. Orange blossom adds a soft floral dimension, while immortelle contributes more complex accords, perhaps evoking Mediterranean landscapes. 

Base notes :

Musk, Vanilla The base notes are rich and sensual, with musk bringing an animalic quality and vanilla bringing a gourmand sweetness. It is in this phase that the fragrance fully reveals its depth and persistence. 

Overall sensation 

"Cuir Mauresque" is an olfactory journey that transports us to Moorish lands, evoking opulence and sophistication. Leather, as the central note, creates a sensation of luxury and mystery, while spices and flowers add complex nuances. Base notes of musk and vanilla leave a long-lasting trail, leaving a lasting impression of warmth and elegance. It's a fragrance that evokes the refinement of oriental influences while capturing the sensuality of leather.
