Il Profumo Nuda
The inspiration for Nuda comes from "the scent that only the skin of a woman can exhale in its state of ecstasy. (L'ispirazione è data dall'odore che solo la pelle di Donna sa emanare nel suo stato di estasi.)" Alrighty then. I have to tell you that I smelled the fragrance first and only afterward looked at the description...and now I wonder if, after reading it, I am even comfortable to voice the image that came to my mind upon smelling Nuda.
Because, reader, to me it smelled child-like. There are certain musks, which have a slightly powdery, clean yet warm characteristic, with, strange as it sounds, a saliva-like undertone that I find interesting and appealing. And whenever I smell a musk like that I think, "a small child", or more precisely, that special place on a small child's neck, right under the plump little chin- the sweetest place to smell and to kiss.
As the fragrance develops on skin, it becomes somewhat more woody, slightly spicy (ginger) and powdery, and a baby grows into a little girl who is playing dress up with mama's makeup. There is a certain innocence about Nuda that I find endlessly appealing. Try it for yourself and let me know whether you will get the ecstasy of Il Profumo's description or the puerility of mine.
