In 1786, a two-masted ship capsized south of the English coast, carrying reindeer leather from Saint Petersburg bound for Genoa.
In 1973, the cargo was unearthed, with the leathers remaining intact. Beyond its incredible durability (partly due to a drying process that remained secret until 1917), Russian Leather possesses a unique scent that perfumers worldwide strive to replicate. L.T. Piver's rendition provides a trail of exceptional elegance.
