So Nude fragrance notes

Reviews of So Nude

There's not a single note I dislike in this perfume. Yet, that's like a boring, generic melting pot. Flowers, fruit, spices - mix it all up together... It makes it smell like strong, cloying soap.
I gave it 2 stars for the smell, but 4 for longevity and sillage.

Promising opening, boring evolution. So Nude opens with an hyper chic fresh-musky-aldehydic (joyful) accord of floral notes and cool/aqueous spices (pepper, cardamom, kurkuma and may be ginger). At the beginning it seems ostensibly to be dealing with "aqueous" floral notes (such like peony, lotus or freesia) but in a few time the tuberose jumps on the stage "alive and kicking" as supported by lily, may be violet and rose (I catch far more lily of the valley than rose). In a while the freshness starts fading, a sultry synthetic fruitiness (apparently like plummines, probably just something similar provided by spicy ylang-ylang) jumps up and the dry down appears like a more boring (warmer) amber-tuberose-powdery woods accord with a synthetic fruity soft undertone (something more than vaguely conjuring me Givenchy Amarige and Penhaligon's Ellenisia in a slightly lighter way, something actually really close to Diptyque Moheli). Anyway Costume National So Nude is a more than graceful floral-spicy accord which anyway lacks the originality to really stand out.

One of the "disappointing ones" among Costume National. A chic, modern, linear floral scent comprising aldehydes, rose & tuberose, a warm and cozy base of amber, cashmeran and perhaps patchouli. A classic, modern, dry floral fragrance filtered through Costume National transparent and elegant style, which sadly is not enough to make it "stand" on its own. As sophisticated as rather generic (dozens of designer scents came to my mind while testing this). Pleasant but negligible.

This perfume didn't bowl be over at first. I liked it, but it seemed so whispy and not really my thing. Today in another season, another mood and I found it. There is something effortless about it---unusual intermission gum, a silk lined purse, a purring voice that purrs for its own sake unawares...wearing it I feel like someone I am is very freeing...very summer.

A very good floral fragrance, mostly focuses on tuberose, then roses. Strong like most Costume National fragrances.
