CoSTUME NATIONAL So Nude description

Costume National’s So Nude is a spicy floral perfume that celebrates the sensuality and confidence of a woman’s body as it is, with no other story present – naked, awake and alive. It is an intimate scent, with cardamom and cumin in the top notes wrapped in a sachet of luminous neroli – your nose is instantly reminded of welcoming, warm, and slightly perspiring skin.

The tang of the spices…

Love!
I received this fragrance as a sample years ago and kept vial for future purchases. I got this as my first scent and I still love it! What's even better? My boyfriend can't stop raving about how good I smell. And can't stop saying how he likes my new perfume. Love that!

I enjoyed this perfume but I cant say it has been my favorite. However, it's the only one my husband has commented about, "You smell really good baby." So, for that reason, I will probably purchase a full size.

The scent took a week for me to grow to like. It seemed a little overpowering. It doesn’t last very long, but caution. One spray is enough.

Not what I was expecting
The first initial spray is nice and floral with the spices in the background. Once it dries down the floral scent takes a back seat and the cumin takes center stage. I'm only a fan of cumin in cooking but not wearing. To me it smells if you haven't worn deodorant in a couple of days. If it would have kept the floral notes I would have liked it better.

Very strong scent
I like this perfume, it's floral and sweet smelling but i do spray this on a shirt and let it sit for a while before i put it on. The scent is very strong and while i l do like the way it smells it also could easily cause me a migraine. I'm not disappointed I got this one at all, just wish they'd have cut back on how strong it is.

nothing nude about it
i was expecting something light and that blended in with my skin and could be worn anywhere. this was the opposite. it’s super sweet and floral... i don’t know anyone whose “nude” skin smells like this (thankfully!) this is the type of perfume that my grandma would complain about other grandmas wearing to church. its distracting and way too strong for everyday wear ... at least on me.

Less exciting than I'd hoped
This one is nice, but that's about all I can really say. It smells like shampoo to me. A higher-end shampoo, but shampoo nonetheless. I think it's aptly named, as it's kind of the olfactory equivalent of nude leather pumps: goes with everything because it's got no real personality of its own.

This scent started out really strong when i first put it on then it nearly disappeared after a few hours. It was lovely after it settled and before it faded out. I suppose you this is one to carry along with you and reapply durring the day (away from others so you don't shock their nose).

This scent reminded me of summer and paired well with my orange blossom body lotion. I could smell the neroli and patchouli but the other notes seemed invisible. It isn't as long lasting as I would like but for a spritz before and after the beach its fine.

Perfection!!
A clean scent unlike heavy floral or musk scents, This smells as if you just stepped out of the shower. I love it. So me !!! Akin to Dolce and Gabanna light blue, this is great for any time, work and daytime, evening seduction or outdoor romps. If I could afford the 160.00 plus an ounce i would wear only it , however... it is a MUST for your scentbird collection... without a doubt.

You want to smell like a chic, put-together gorgeous ballerina from the Upper East Side. That’s all I can think of when I wear this. Refined, beautiful and feminine without being your average boring floral. This would smell amazing in cold weather wafting off a scarf or wool coat as well. I love it.

This is a truly well balanced Scent. Beautiful with just a small touch of muskiness. Obvious why it’s such an expensive and hard to find perfume. I’d be completely happy if I knew wtf my other 2 scents where and why they aren’t here already :( excuses are never ending sigh

Nice, but doesn’t mix well with me
I was so excited for this scent! I saw another review that this scent reminded them of one of my favorite perfumes, Armani Code. It smells amazing right out of the bottle and does remind me of Code. I was disappointed that once I wore it, the scent settled down to almost a baby powder smell. Just doesn’t mix well with my chemistry I guess.

I have to admit that I was excited to try this out because of the name. Once on me, I wasn’t too excited about the smell. Perhaps it my natural oils in my skin, but it reminded me of someone older. Not a bad smell, it just wasn’t what I was expecting or my style.

Tuberose and not a whole lot more
I got the tuberose and neroli notes the most with this one. Decent tuberose perfume if that's what you're looking for, but I didn't find it to be complex enough for the notes it was said to carry. Floral, a tad musky, but nothing that truly differentiates it from anything else similar. Middle of the road.

So YUM
Ok, this scent is what I would absolutely call the scent of a women. It is absolutely my favorite yet, it's warm, comfy, inviting, sweet but not overly....it reminds me of what a women's natural smell should be described as in every romance novel. It's attractive, it would cause me to want to snuggle my nose deep into the wearers neck! I only just got it so I haven't worn it but for a few hours but I'm in love! It's light and fresh but so inviting that I believe it would cause people to scoot just a bit closer so they can smell you. I will absolutely be purchasing a bigger bottle of So Nude!

Lets start with my impression about the shipment this month - HORRIBLE!!! My first order came super quick, this one? not so much - I tracked it, expected it on a Saturday... it came on a Tuesday. Ok, fine I have my perfume, im beyond excited so I take it out of the little canister, spray it right onto my arm and BAM!! I was Stink-a-fied!!!! ooooh Lord, the smell of old lady was upon me. I went into work the next day told everyone about how bad the smell was, let them experience it for themselves and NOT one of them liked it. It is soOoo strong, too strong. I don't know how this perfume was: 1. In the same gift box as "Juliette has a Gun - Not a Perfume" (if you did not try that one, you NEED to - compliments galore) and 2. How does it have great ratings?!? I will just stick to what I know from now on. Wasted $15 this month.

I'll start this review with the disclaimer that I put this perfume in my queue to try and brand out a bit from my usual style. It is definitely not my usual style, so I got what I asked for. My first impression of this one is not great.. There is an artificial berry/grape note in this perfume that really turned me off. To me it is quite powdery, which I do not necessarily equate to the "clean" scent others have mentioned. The vanilla notes are nice - I am not usually a sweet, vanilla kind of girl, but it is subtle and works here! Ultimately, So Nude EDP reminds me of a very elderly teacher from elementary school - She wore something similar, and wore a LOT of it... Enough so that 20+ years later, I can still smell it. Perhaps that is skewing my opinion.

By far my favorite perfume so far. I like a wide varty of scents, but this one is very alluring. I'm partial to spicy scents and I get a lot of compliments when I wear it. The only thing I'm not fond of is the price for a full size bottle. But this is a scent you should definitely add to your subscription and give it a try.

I think that so many of the perfumes now have similar qualities based on whichever perfume is currently selling well...I found that So Nude was another scent that just left me thinking it smells like too many other perfumes that I really could care less about. It wasn't offensive but it didn't speak to me,

Smells like cheap gold perfume that was hot in discount stores in the 80's, like "Navy." Cheap, strong and familiar. The scent did improve after hours. The actual smell is very hard to describe and nothing like the notes Scentbird described. Overly strong, perfume interpretation of floral grape with a light musk or powder finish? It reminds me of the late 80's; however, it has many positive reviews, so maybe my nose is just atypical.

I absolutely love this perfume. When I visited Canada I stayed in a hotel room that had a scent and I thought it was an air freshener and it smelled so good. And then when I got this perfume it smells exactly the same and I was so excited. And I know that you're thinking why would I want a perfume to smell like an air freshener but it is so clean smelling and fresh and has kind of a sandalwood smell that I just absolutely love. This is definitely full bottle worthy

I love this scent. It's long lasting and smells luxurious. I love all of Costume National products.

This is my very favorite fragrance - ever. I fell in love with it and was pleased when scentbird added it. I prefer buying a spritzer over a big bottle for portability. I should note- I love how it smells on me- but a friend used it and it was not at all a pleasant fragrance.
