Warm and beautiful creation full of sunshine and beachy vibe. ;) So I bought a roll-on sample from an e-bay seller and when it arrived I had the beginnings of a cold. It's been a few days now, my nose is working better and I just love this scent! Sensuous Nude contains coconut, however it is not the coconut of a tropical beach or cream pie.
Throughout the morning I was getting an occasional whiff of something yummy and realized it's ME! I'm going to buy a full bottle and I'm just so happy that I have finally found a fragrance that I really truly love and I can wear at work! It is more the subdued scent of coconut carried on a tropical breeze, or the shreddings atop a confection.
But I'm wearing this again for the first time in months on a crisp September day in London and it is beautiful. The silage does not compare with Crystal Noir but CN is too sharp and the gardenia turns very soapy on me. Like I said, I wish it projected better but it's a beautiful comfort scent that's perfect for summer, if I want heavier there is always Sensuous or Sensuous Noir ;) This coconut concoction is a summer must from my collection. But if you are into creamy, warm, clean, sweet, soapy, spicy and skin-like scents without that auntie floral-floral vibe - hell yes!
The initial stage is fresh citrus-vanilla with a lovely dry down of subtle Gourmand coconut and cosy sandalwood. This is a tropical fragrance without being sugary Escada version of the tropic but a bit more mature vision. I love coconut, but I become wary when it is used in fragrances.
None of the notes overpower, in fact, so its woody but not TOO woody, sweet but not sickly, just the right level of powderiness.
Beautifully blended perfume and another EL winner for me. I went off this over the summer - the coconut and buttery/creamy aspect became nauseating in extreme hot weather.
It is colored in powdery pink, announcing sensuality of the composition. There's a tropical warmth and a nice, woody base at the same time. I think this smells better on the skin than on paper! Such a comforting creamy coconut scent that will smell delicious all year around.
The fragrance can be obtained in three sizes: 30, 50 and 100ml EDP, along with an accompanying assortment: Sensuous Nude Body Veil – rich body cream 200ml, and Sensuous Nude Touch On Fragrance – light silky serum 10ml. The tingly pepper fits great with the warm, creamy coconut. The musk is not too overwelming and I like how the floral and citrus notes compliment the others. On my skin this smells very gourmand like coconut and chocolate biscuits but in a luxurious way.
Sensuous Nude is a new version of the original perfume Sensuous from 2008.
The new fragrance continues tradition of feminine and tame compositions leaving a cuddling and honey-sweet trail on woman's skin.
This is a case, at least for me, where the flanker surpasses the original.
