Estée Lauder Sensuous Nude

A fruity opening - sweetish - with a slightly orangey undertone dominates the top notes. 

The drydown some adds two main streams of development: (1) a floral side, with muguet being quite strong, combined with a bit of jasmine and a somewhat bland rose impression. (2) A concurrently developing coconut aroma, that gradually gains in exposure and lasts deep into the later phases.  Both work quite well together.  

The base adds - what a surprise! - vanilla again, which is not really a stroke of originality, combined with slightly honeyed woodsy accompaniments that fade out towards the end.   

I get moderate sillage, very good projection and eleven hours of longevity on my skin.  

The major creative achievement of the spring scent is the unusual use of the coconut.   The major drawback is the regrettably generic nature of the rather synthetic ingredients.   

Nude?  Certainly bare of any natural goodness. 2.5/5.
