Aromas from the kitchen, scent from the boudoir, flowers from the garden: fragrances everywhere....As a baker girl/chef, it is no surprise that I am seduced by scent. In addition to working with fragrance and flavors in the bakery and kitchen, I also dabble in candle making, personal and custom perfumes, and hand milled soaps as well as home fashioned incense and potpourri. I am happy to share what I also sleuth out in the way of the best in special and unique scents (in toiletries, perfumes, aromatherapy oils, soaps, cosmetics, and incense) for my BetterBaking.com visitors. Sometimes, I stray to related niceties, such as books on the subject, or chimes, and other softer-side-of-lifestyle products. Here is where you will my reviews and special discoveries on scent, perfumes, soaps, candles, home fragrance, cosmetics, even men's scents, and sometimes a recipe or two for potpourri, homemade cologne, vanilla or lavender sleep pillows. Scent of a Baker is an oasis for your senses. You can also check out more of my fragrance reviews at http://www.mistressofscents.com/
I rarely use a company's direct PR materials to profile a perfume but the PR from Estee Lauder's newest Sensuous, Nude - really nails this fragrance. The fragrance notes are outlined in detail and truly capture this incredible bouquet - which is feminine, sultry but not cloying, woody, warm and totally deserving of the name Sensuous Nude.
This is really one of the perfumes that ushers in a whole new era of sensual and feminine by fusing musk, woods, heliotrope and companion vanilla in a subtle way and enlivening it with some peppery and citrus notes to keep it from being too sweet. This is a summer evening or elegant soiree perfume - not exactly daily wear but a signature scent.
