Now, this is good news. I've been yearning for a Cuiron bottle for years. Of course, I only discovered this sensual leather and skin perfume once it was discontinued and people started charging kidneys for partial bottles, so I've kept looking and cursing with very little success. Now we are told that
"Helmut Lang will reissue its original, iconic scents in October 2014. Each scent remains true to its original formulation, both in spirit and ingredients. Deeply admired by scent aficionados when released in 2000 and 2002, Helmut Lang’s Eau de Parfum, Eau de Cologne and Cuiron are as innovative and concise as Lang’s design sensibility."
|The new bottles|
The three fragrances will come in 100ml bottles (Cuiron $165, Helmut Lang EDP $185, Helmut Lang EDC $185) and will be available at Luckyscent and Barneys starting today. Notes, for the curious:
EDC: rosemary, orange tree , caramel, musk, cedarwood, vanilla, sandalwood and patchouli.
EDP: lavender, rosemary, orange tree, sandalwood, cedarwood, amber and patchouli
Cuiron: worn-in leather, bergamot, mandarin, pink peppercorn, cassia oil, woods, ancient resins and suede.
