Lighter and sweeter than the original

Lighter and sweeter than the original, and more short-lived. More summery, I suppose, but I don't like it nearly as well.

Sensuous Nude may deserve 4 stars instead of 5, but I don't care-- I love it! It's very unique in that it's highly unusual to find such a heavy dose of woods, specifically cedar, in ladies' perfume. It's done perfectly though, balanced with vanilla and its other notes to create a dusty, velvety, alluring, yet calming fragrance.
I truly adore Sensuous Nude and wear it often, sometimes layered with other fragrances. So thankful to be given the gift of feminine cedar, because I crave cedarwood! I'm pretty sure I'll always have a bottle on hand.

This smells like dry coconut and pencil shavings! Very interesting, unique, unfamiliar, and I actually like it. It's even kind of comforting in a way, and reminds me of being a child in school or drawing for fun. Unfortunately, I keep being distracted by the pencil smell. I wish I wasn't, but I am. Maybe at some point I won't be, but for now I'll just keep sampling it now and then.

I use it to spray at my bath robe and pillows. It's calming and soothing. For me it's a fragrance of a mother hugging and kissing a child before bedtime. It's not a work fragrance, I save it for quiet and cozy evenings at home with my family.
Sophisticated and feminine
by Marie on Jan 9, 2017
This has been my favorite perfume for a few years. It has a classy, sophisticated, and very feminine smell. It smells modest, confident. It's like wearing an outfit that you know is flattering, and fits well, and timeless, but isn't a show-stopper. It just makes people say, "She looks really nice." It may not appeal to the younger set, or to the adventurous, but it has found a forever home in my collection. It's like the old friend you can confide in. It may not take you over the moon, but everyone can use an old friend.

This fragrance doesn't remind me of the beach at all, which is what I expected it to when I saw coconut. For me, the coconut doesn't stand out - it's not a sweet coconut, it's like the coconut shavings that you find on a coconut cake. They don't smell particularly strong - dry, a little powdery, a little sweet but not too much.
What I do smell a lot of in this fragrance: I'll start from the top. I smell a lot of orange at the top, sweet mandarin orange. This phase is very nice, although it doesn't last long, maybe 5-10 minutes. Then I get a sandalwood/jasmine scent. Pleasant, musky, very likeable. I think no one could be offended by this scent, even if you sprayed on a lot. It never gets sharp or too strong. It's a very gentle, feminine fragrance. Later on, about an hour or two later, I start to get more of the vanilla, amber, and a powdery floral, maybe the heliotrope? It does smell purple to me - sweet and powdery, like a lavender eyeshadow. It's mostly died down about 4 hours later.
Overall, it's a nice scent. I don't think I would buy it, though - I have some other scents that smell very similar to this - this is a Cashmere Mist type of scent. If you see it on sale and need an office-safe, cozy type of scent - you could pick it up :)

Ester Lauder- Sensuooous Nude is a really nice powdery soooft smell, mixed with a whole lot of sexy your man will love.

This is nothing special - not much different from any number of other scents out there. I don't dislike it, but if you're looking for something modern and different but still feminine like I was, you'll be disappointed. I definitely won't splurge for any more of this.
Best of the beachy scents

This takes me to a beach that smells wonderful... Love love love this scent. It's my favorite from the skin collection. I may have to purchase a larger bottle..
Romantic quiet evening

The woody notes gives out an exotic throw. It's very comforting and romantic. It's mature and sophisticated. For me it feels like going on a date in the big city.
Okay perfume; not outstanding
by Claudette on Feb 1, 2014
I thought this smelled okay, but for me it had hardly any smell. Lasted only a short time too.
