I have tried nuda on my skin last night. The lasting power is overwhelming, i can still smell it on my wrist this morning.
I am not that firm with the fragrance language most of you use, so i will try to describe in my own words (i am german).
when i first sprayed it on my thought was "uhhhh, this is interesting".
it was a very pleasent fresh soft opening with just a tiny little sweetness that was just right and not too much, so it would not prevent me to wear it as a man. it reminded my of some sort of fruit but i unfortunately would not guess what it was. the opening was all naturall and i had no chemical impression.
as time past by nuda developed very interesting, as it changed its face in way i almost couldn´t believe it. suddenly i smelled a somehow dark and a little bit sharp flowery note like flowers after e heavy rain in the early morning. not sweet at all, but heavily attracting me for some reason. it wasn´t a regular attraction, more like "what strange thing is happening here?" Do i really like this?
From then on nuda seemed to jump between these notes and while doing so the first note developed into an absolutely beautiful extremly addictive and attractive jasmin.
There is no cheap or ordinary basenotes, no vanilla, no musk, no patchouli, no amber, no tonka that many perfumes turn out to be like. That´s what i found to be very remarkable.
Nuda is all about Jasmin. From the beginning to its end.
There would probably be much more to describe about nuda but - excuse my beginners nose - these were the outstanding and very remarkable things that i would experience.
I could not help it keep smelling on my wrist all the time.
I own Love & Tears by Kilian and i really like it. Nuda is different though. It is more special. It seems to change clothes without loosing its style. It attracts and appeals to the emotions, it challenges without being offending.
It fits my skin like it was made to be there.
I will be heading out to the store after writing this because there is NO WAY around buying a whole bottle of this. I haven´t had that feeling before and i suppose that´s my keyword.
And it is not that i want to go out there and buy the bottle, it´s even more like i HAVE to do it, like i am forced to to it and there is no way around.
This stuff is highly addictive!!!
