The fragrance began with a trip to the Massif Central, a mountainous region in the south of France, in search of raw materials for their luxurious line of leather gloves, recounts head of the house Jean-Paul Millet Lage. Hence the new fragrance is advertised with the image of a naked woman, wearing nothing but leather gloves and holding a red-leather-corseted bottle of Cuir Fétiche.
The fragrance like a typical Maître Parfumeur et Gantier creation reprises favourite materials, such as jasmine, rose, ambergris and musk, but sublimates them through the synergy of mandarin, ylang ylang, vanilla and leather notes. The effect is rich and sensuous.
