Perfume Profile: Estee Lauder Sensuous Nude

I rarely use a company's direct PR materials to profile a perfume but the PR from Estee Lauder's newest Sensuous, Nude - really nails this fragrance. The fragrance notes are outlined in detail and truly capture this incredible bouquet - which is feminine, sultry but not cloying, woody, warm and totally deserving of the name Sensuous Nude.
This is really one of the perfumes that ushers in a whole new era of sensual and feminine by fusing musk, woods, heliotrope and companion vanilla in a subtle way and enlivening it with some peppery and citrus notes to keep it from being too sweet. This is a summer evening or elegant soiree perfume - not exactly daily wear but a signature scent.
Unveiling the natural elegance and sensuality that is womanhood, Sensuous Nude glows with cozy Musks that radiate and linger like a second skin. Characterized as a Woody Musk fragrance, Sensuous Nude’s powerful yet direct, minimal construction is sensual to the core, just like today’s woman.
Modern Radiance Accord
In the beginning, sparkling clarity is achieved with the freshness of Sicilian Bergamot and pulpy Mandarin contrasted with the vibration of exotic Baie Rose and invigorating Black Pepper.
Intimate Femininity Accord
Next, modern femininity is revealed through a heart of intoxicating Jasmine Petals and delicate Muguet combined with a splash of luscious Coconut Water. Finished with a touch of Honey and laced with Musk, the body of the fragrance engages all the senses in an immersive experience.
Addictive Sensuality Accord
In the end, the velvety warmth of bare skin is captured in the defining core of translucent Musk. Balanced with an infusion of warm Sandalwood, luxurious, glowing Amber and the Sensuous franchise signature, Melted Woods NaturePrint®, the soft, sensual intimacy is completed with delightfully unexpected hints of warm Heliotrope and creamy Vanilla.
