Love the artwork in the 2nd pic
Should be interesting to see how this turns out.
PVC and Leather. A Chain and a feather
Galamb was looking for an animalic, no-holds-barred jasmine. this might be it!
I have been searchin for something like this for ages. I hope it is as good as it seems.
I notice they changed the cap between the early previews and now, and the new ad copy makes no mention of jasmine, or for that matter, anything at all to do with fragrance.
Maybe we're just supposed to go with the title and assume it smells like one of these.
lol @ name
nuda in polish means boredom
Tell Hugo, he isnt boss anymore.
Untill they address the leaking bottle issue, my interest in this line is zero. The sad part is I really like some of the line.
Luckyscent now has this. Anyone smell it yet?
I love really pure jasmine fragrances, but this one is going to have to be really good to impress me better than A La Nuit by Serge Lutens, especially at Nasomatto's prices.
Thanks for the info, Scent! I didn't find the AG aggressive at all ( smelled a little like jasmine and raisins to my nose, pleasant but not true love for me ), so I'd be intrigued to smell it.
In your opinion, is it like Diptyque's Olene or Serge Lutens A La Nuit at all? To my nose those are both very sharp jasmines, but I like Olene's style but not A La Nuit's.
scent - the 'sharp' texture of Nuda, is it an aldehydic-sort of smell?
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!!!

I smelled this last week for the first time. Huge indolic jasmine bomb. I like jasmine on others, but it's not my cup-o-tea. Something tells me there must but something similar for far less money.
Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.
(From Maldoror by Comte de Lautreamont)
"What is this secret connection between the soul, and sea, clouds and perfumes? The soul itself appears to be sea, cloud and perfume..." - from Zorba the Greek by Nikos Kazantzakis.
I liked it when I smelled it, but I thought:
1) Serge Lutens did this already (A La Nuit)
2) The volume could have been turned down just a notch
