Did you get it at an estate sale?Often estate sales have vintage perfumes. I got a bottle of vintage Knize Ten that way.Cuir de Russie seems to be one of those mythic scents people talk about in hushed tones. I put Kolnisch Juchten in that same category along with Caron's Tabac Blond.
You should visit China if not just to see what kind of a divergent society they've created from the same establishments and artistic, social traditions. Plus the intrusion of the urban Soviet Socialist system on what been pre-49 still feudal/imperial cities excepting Shanghai.
They also make a good face powder to combat afternoon oiliness.Do you have Cuir de Russie?China has a terrible selection of fine and niche scents. The best one can get are Aqua di Parma or Hermes which are respectable but completely unexciting. Everything is of course overtaxed,I buy 80-90% of grooming products and perfumes overseas and then have them shipped over here. In fact I just bought a bottle of Kilian's "Straight to Heaven" in the U.S.
There's a rather strong initial rose note with the oud but once it drys down, it's quite pleasant. I don't think this would work well in a humid climate since it can easily get cloying.
91 degrees in Beijing and wearing The Aoud by Mancera Paris. The dry heat compliments these otherwise rather rich Middle Eastern scents.
I have a light blue silk one that was made by Turnbull & Asser. I wear it with a black mohair 2x1 double breasted tuxedo by Edward Sexton.

I wonder who make's Cartier's frames?
That appears to be a well worn Hermes Sac a Depeche briefcase.
Ernest is the King of Paris sales.
