Part of Keiko Mecheri’s “Under the Skin” range, Cuir Cordoba is exactly that, a sensation just under the skin… A suede-like olfactory texture delicately perfumed with powdery floral notes. An androgynous compostion.
A long weekend in a dimly lit hotel room. The mist settles outside and the picture comes into focus as daylight takes hold. Goosebumps, the sensation as skin touches skin ever so slightly. A sensual encounter of scent and touch. The senses are all heightened and a there is lively passion in the air.
Top: Black Violet, Bergamot
Middle: Suede Accord, Elemi
Base: Patchouli, Sandalwood, Benzoin
HOW IT WEARS
Cuir Cordoba opens with a swirl of realistic suede and sweet resins, which soon reveal the green, waxy yet dusty iris sitting underneath. After a while, the elegant compostion of florals awaken – you get the deep purple violets, a little patchouli and the bright, sparkling bergamot. This scent will hug your skin softly for 6-8 hours.
What we love about Cuir Cordoba is that it’s a “shy” leather. It’s not overly loud or agressive like some leather scents can be. Instead it’s soft, skin-like and enveloping. It’s chic, modern, and androgynous, like a pair of cream-coloured suede gloves.
ABOUT THE BRAND
Founded by its namesake in 1997, Keiko Mecheri is all about unconventionality and the reinterpretation of tradition in fragrance. Keiko herself was born in Japan, studied in Europe and then eventually settled down in Los Angeles, California, where she founded the brand. The fragrances reflect this worldly influence while keeping a distinctly LA feel – bohemian and laid-back, but also diverse, imaginative and innovative.
Keiko Mecheri serves as a point of difference to the more traditional French perfume “establishment”. Its fragrances take ingredients and notes we think we know, and re-create them with a modern twist. To Keiko, fragrance is about capturing a brief moment in time. She acquires inspiration from travel, music, film, photography, and her own memories, which can really be felt in each one of her fragrances.
