A leather scent by Keiko Mecheri.
Cuir Fauve defines sensory experience in an almost bewildering new territory. Leather naturally feels and smells warm. The work is subverting the warmth of leather toward a cool freshness.
Cuir Fauve is quintessentially defines like early 20th century Fauvism and early 21st century expressionism: wild brushstrokes and vivid bold tones.
The artist revolves violet leaves, saffron dust, patchouli, vanilla and woods enough to maintain the illusion that one is smelling the real thing, a sweaty tangled fur of some beast on the run.
The pleasure in wearing Cuir Fauve lies in is its extraordinary depth wrapped in its animalic suppleness.
Notes: Saffron Dust, Rose Baie, Citrus Notes, Green of Violet, Patchouli Leaves, Precious Woods, Amber Notes, Vanilla
