|Estée Lauder Sensuous Nude Delicate Duet Gift Set*|
When it comes to choosing a perfume, I personally like to opt for something delicate, sweet and feminine, so when I came across Estée Lauder's 'Sensuous Nude' perfume, I was somewhat smitten. This beautiful perfume is described by Estée Lauder as 'modern, intimate and feminine, like a second skin.' It has a powdery scent that lasts all day long and has become a firm favourite of mine this summer.
I don't know about you, but I think there is something so lovely about receiving a perfume gift set. I think it is because I like everything to match! The Estée Lauder Sensuous Nude Delicate Duet gift set includes a 30 ml Sensuous Nude perfume and matching 75 ml body lotion. What's great about the body lotion is that you can either wear it on its own for a lighter version of the scent, or wear it with the perfume to intensify it and ensure it lasts all day. The two piece set come in a gorgeous red, gold and purple box, which I think perfectly reflects the brand's luxury image.
The Sensuous Nude perfume contains a number of notes which are separated into three categories: Intimate, Feminine and Warm. The 'Intimate' notes are Sicilian Bergamot, Baie Rose, Mandarin and Black Pepper. The 'Feminine' notes are Jasmine petals, Muguet, Coconut water, honey and musk. And my personal favourite 'Warm' notes are Melted Woods, Sandalwood, Amber, Musk, Heliotrope and Vanilla. On my skin it is the warm powdery musk and vanilla scents that really linger beautifully on the skin all day.
I would highly recommend this perfume to anyone that is looking for a classic feminine scent. It is not too heavy or mature and I personally love how it sweetens throughout the day as it settles into the skin.
If you are in the market for a new perfume, purchasing a gift set like this is a great way to try one out, before going on to buy a bigger bottle. You also get the added benefit of receiving the matching body lotion which really is lovely on the skin. If you are on the hunt for a selection of perfume gift sets then it is worth looking on the Harrods website, as they always have such a fantastic selection, with something for everyone. Perfume gift sets like the Estée Lauder Sensuous Nude duet also make lovely birthday, Christmas and anniversary presents for the special people in your life.
