I bought the minis set of Estée Lauder and hated all of them, they all smell like old lady,

Ahh, Sensuous sounded so promising -- fronted by Gwynneth Paltrow & other models -- but no! This is described as "Woody Amber" on the EL display, and that's usually my type -- skin-musky scents are as well. Unfortunately, for me, Sensuous missed the mark.
Why so thin? Why the black pepper note? And why so much honey? To be "sensuous", it should have been smoooooooth! And deep! And rich! And musky! And well-blended! Not thin & black peppery & honey-sweetened! Bah!! The black pepper just never stops prickling my nose.
Yet I did get a compliment once, wearing this -- from a friend of my son's. It's just okay for me. I wish it could have been a signature, a holy grail (esp since it's so easy-to-find, even in my small town) -- but the notes never do come together into a "sensuous" blend, for me anyway -- because it's thin & sheer (were they trying to make it fresh?), black peppery, and quite honey-sweetened.
However, it is still in the golden/warm/woody/ambery family, and that's my wheelhouse, so I'm kind of on the fence with this scent. I do own a bottle, and I guess I'd probably repurchase. It's not the smooth, rich, deep, sensuous "woody amber" I was hoping for, but it's still a good one to have around. I think Gucci Guilty (which I gave 5 stars to) is much closer to what I was hoping for and expecting from something named "sensuous" -- either like that or something more "nude" -- or like a natural musk scent (I'm a musk hound).

I usually stay clear of Estee Lauder fragrances, but this one is an exception. I really love the warm, sweet, woody smell of this. I find it very comforting and easy to wear. I can't imagine this being offensive to anyone. It's a very unique smelling perfume! Just lovely.

This perfume is very warm, and safe. I really like it.
I have had it for about a year, and I am no way close to finishing the bottle.

Beautiful, sexy, cocooning and warm. I love this perfume and have received many compliments when wearing it. Suited to winter months :-)

This is THE ONLY FRAGRANCE I use! I am very sensitive (allergy wise) to scents. This perfume is so soft and gentle and doesn't cause any allergic reaction. It doesn't stay on as long as other perfumes, but I do carry a small bottle with me during the day to touch op my perfurme. Lovely sexy scent! You will not regret buying it. I love it.

This is one of my favorite perfumes of all time. To me it smells soft and feminine, almost powdery but still distinctly woodsy. It reminds me a lot of Bonnie.Belle Skin Musk but more mature. I disagree with some of the previous reviews. This does not smell like a mature older lady at all. It smells to me like a sophisticated and mature young lady. Its too powdery to smell like an old lady. The staying power is OK. I get about eight hours from it. Its not too strong that its offensive but one spray is plenty for me. I like that the scent.doesn't transform on me. Once it dries it maintains its scent where most perfumes turn rancid on me after a few hours. Its a win in my book. I only wish they'd made a more attractive bottle.

This is my mom's perfume. I love it on her. I'm not sure about this being a perfume for a woman of all ages, though. I think it's more on the mature and sophisticated side. Nevertheless, it's one of my favorites among her perfumes. Maybe I'll buy it in the future.

Very impressed with this one. It's the right balance of sweet, cozy and woody with a touch of classiness. It's one of the few perfumes that both my mother and I can wear becouse it's not too old lady like or too teeny sweet.
To me it smells a bid like sweetened powdered fig and amber although there is no fig there -and I don't have a problem with that
My chemistry likes it-def recommended
