I don't understand why this isn't getting better reviews. I got rid of my tons and tons of perfume wanting a new fragrance line for 2012. I have smelt and searched up and down looking for "me" scent, but so far nothing was "me"......until now. Wow this scent is outstanding. I was blown away, I can not stop smelling myself or talking about is scent. Its a little beachy like some sun, sand, water and a bit of tanning oil, a touch of sweetness and a hint of powder. It has 3 things I wanted all in one. This is gonna be my signature scent I am hooked. Fantastic job Estee Lauder.
On me this starts out warm and "beachy"... coconut, sandelwood, Jasmine... and I also smell a touch of honey sweetness. Then after a short while it turns into a clean grown up powdery scent. This isn't my complaint since this combo somehow combines my 2 favorite "scent types" in one bottle. It's actually my perfect dream scent. My issue with Sensuous Nude is it's lasting power.... or lack thereof... that's what stinks. Yeah it's meant to be a lighter scent, but I feel it's practically nonexistant after about 2 hours.... can't even detect a whiff of it on my clothing. Even Amazing Grace has better staying power than this. Ahhh,,, but a wonderful scent that my husband is wild about so I'm sad to say I probably won't repurchase this often considering that it's $65 for the small 1.7 oz at Macy's and must be reapplied several times daily. One more thing... I'm less than thrilled with the packaging, namely the cheapy cap, Estee Lauder.
There is nothing interesting about this scent at all. It's very powdery and does not last at all. A definite no no.
Liked the sampler in the magazines, so asked for it for Christmas. First spritz made me scared - kind of overpowering baby powder scent...So I tried a few conservative spritzes on lower legs just to see, scent doesn't last long. Wore some on wrists & neck today. It's nice, but nothing exciting...
Well, I believe it's a totally different scent from sensuous or sensuous noir. On me the dominant note is coconut and remains dominant from beginning to the end. As time goes by, sandalwood and musk become more apparent, but still- coconut is what I get most. It's not a foody coconut smell though, more ''grown-up'' I'd say, like coconut milk.
The whole thing didn't impress me though, seems too watery and shy, I feel like something is missing here, not enough personality I guess. I waited to see if it would develop into something more interesting but no hope, after a couple of hours it dissapeared leaving no trace. I think it could be a nice one for people who like the escada vacation/casual vibe but are looking for something more sophisticated.
I was never interested in original Sensuous... not that it was bad, it was just too spicy and woody to me. I also am not a fan of sugarsweet fragrances... When I smelled Sensuous Nude, i actually really liked it! its not as spicy and woody as Sensuous with a a little sweetness to it, but in a really nice way.
I like this fragrance, its very lovely, however I am a bit disappointed in the longevity/staying power... for that reason I will not buy it again - but I love this fragrance for the autumn time and maybe even for spring - for that lovely sweetness :)
I like both Sensuous and Sensuous Noir so I was eagerly awaiting Nude when I read about it on the fragrance blogs. Went to Macy's to smell it and thought-meh. Too fruity, too blah and did not purchase it. Tried it again on another trip and couldn't stop sniffing my wrist. Every time I go to the mall I try it on and my daughter said " BUY IT ALREADY!!" I'm asking for it for Christmas because it makes me happy when I put it on even though it is not the kind of scent I usually go for. The problem is it only lasts an hour (if that) on me, but it is not expensive so I'm willing to reapply. Again-crap bottle!
I wish the bottle was more interesting, but it's plain & round but I suppose classic in a way. Nevertheless functional & fits nicely in the hand!
The scent has a beautiful suggestion of coconut, not overpowering at all. It's feminine & really non-offensive. One of those ones where you don't realise it's a perfume but you just think that person smells nice, then when you smell the perfume from the bottle you realise that's the one so-and-so wears. I really think you need to smell it for yourself to see if you like it as fragrance is such a personal thing, but if you like coconut I'd say you're likely to like it, & if not then you won't. I've decided to wear it for my wedding as it's got something about it which makes me think of weddings, not quite sure what!
This was just "meh" to me. It's very au courant! But I think you could find a better crack at a warm, sheer skin-scent. (Hypnose Senses, for one, NR for Her... or even Love, Chloe, which is a little different because it's a powdery take on a skin-scent.) I usually like Estee Lauder perfumes because they're mostly wearable and high quality... but this one seemed a little rushed to the shelves, somehow. I liked the idea of Sensuous Nude, but it didn't strike home for me. It smelled good, didn't last very long, and doesn't make me want to run out and buy a bottle. Sensuous and Sensuous Noir, however, I do enjoy, though I don't own them.
I love this perfume. Whereas, the regular Sensuous is more woody, Sensuous Nude smells milder and more floral. SN contains a beautiful, soft coconut scent. This fragrance is just sweet enough without being cloying. It stays close to the skin and is unoffensive. The fragrance is so well rounded with no sharpness. I would consider it creamy and comforting. Sort of like aromatherapy.
