What Does Nude Smell Like

Nude by Rihanna begins with a light, feathery sweetness that is distinctly tropical. Guava is the star here, dominating the initial impression with its tropical, juicy brilliance, while the pear adds a hint of creamy succulence. The mandarin orange weaves through subtly, offering a touch of citrusy brightness. As the perfume develops, the floral heart unveils itself. The heady, intoxicating scent of gardenia comes through, along with the intoxicating, spicy and rich fragrance of jasmine sambac. Orange blossom introduces a fresh, citrusy floral note to balance the heavier florals. The perfume then deepens into the base, where the scent of vanilla orchid comes to the fore, casting a warm, creamy sweetness over the composition. This is embraced by the rich, woody scent of sandalwood, adding depth and warmth. The musk is soft and subtle, lingering in the background, adding a whisper of animalic sensuality. Overall, Nude by Rihanna unfolds as a sweet, fruity, and floral fragrance underscored by creamy, woody, and subtly animalic tones. It is a perfume that is reminiscent of a tropical garden in bloom, underlain by warm, comforting, and subtly sensual notes.

Review of Nude

Rihanna's Nude Eau de Parfum, released in 2012, is an indulgence in the sensual and playful. Crafted for women, particularly those with a youthful spirit, this perfume stands out in a crowd without being too overpowering.

One of the most noticeable aspects of Nude is the sweet scent that wafts up as soon as you spritz it on. It brings to mind the lush juiciness of ripe guava and pear, the sweetness mingling with a subtle floral heart, making it a delightful concoction for the senses. The floral notes of gardenia and jasmine sambac give it an air of femininity and grace, while the base notes of vanilla orchid, sandalwood, and musk lend it a layer of warm sensuality.

It's a scent that transitions well over the seasons, feeling fresh in the spring, rich in the fall, and cozy in the winter. Though it may fall a bit short on hot summer days, it can still serve as a nice, light fragrance for casual outings, especially during the evenings.

Nude is versatile enough to wear for daily activities, and it holds its own in a business setting without being too overpowering. It won't necessarily last you an entire night out, but it's perfect for that leisurely afternoon brunch or a relaxed evening gathering where its subtle scent can truly shine.

While it does lean towards a sweet fragrance, it's not cloyingly so. The fruity and floral accents prevent it from becoming overwhelmingly sweet, while the synthetic touches help it maintain a modern edge. However, if you're not a fan of sweet scents, Nude may not be your best choice.

Overall, Rihanna's Nude strikes a good balance between playful and sophisticated, sensual and sweet, making it a worthy addition to any perfume collection. It's an honest scent that doesn't try to be anything it's not – a reflection of the woman who wears it.
