First Impression- Sensuous Nude by Estee Lauder

I received this sample of Sensuous Nude with my Ulta order, but for some when I think of Estee Lauder, I think of it as an "old lady" brand of make up, but their products don't look like that. I swatched their cream eyeshadows when I was at Macy's sometime ago and fell in love their products. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that both my grandmother and mother use their products, would be something that would steer me away from this brand(Please excuse my closed-mindedness, I'm really working on it ):). But after swatching some if their products before trying this perfume, gave me an open mind. So with that, I decided to give it a chance, when I first tried this perfume, these were the first things that came to mind: flowery and incense. It felt like I was smelling a incense stick with no smoky smell, I also sensed a subtle musky scent and also a baby powder after smell.

For those who look for favorite notes, the notes are: Woods, Musky, Muguet, Sicilian Bergamot and Baie Rose

To me this something that I would enjoy wearing everyday, it's not to over powering that it would give me a headache(which I get easily from people who walk by me with either too much perfume or Cologne on) But it's not to subtle that I wouldn't tell that it's on. The bottle is simple, very elegant, it would go very well with almost every style that you could have on you vanity. A 1 oz bottle of this would cost you 52$ at Ulta and they are always having sales, so you could get a great deal for it. I hope this was helpful!
Thanks for reading!


  1. I love this perfume! I don't own it but I tried it on at macy's once and LOVED it!

  2. I don't own it either, but I love it too! My sister in law loved the sample I gave her so much, that she went and got a bottle of it for herself. They have a roller stick of it for 20$, so you could have some before you commit to the full bottle :)
