The Nude by Rihanna Eau de Parfum is available for GBP 28.00. The Eau de Parfum is available as 30 ml, 50 ml and 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
The Eau de Parfum was launched in 2012.
The Eau de Parfum comes in a glass bottle that is adorned with silken ribbons and a silver ring on the stopper. The glass bottle contains 50 ml.
The Eau de Parfum is described as follows. "Nude by Rihanna is a sweet floral – fruity fragrance with a vanilla background. With its woody and skin musky notes, the fragrance transmits intimacy and a feeling of bare skin and nakedness. Fruity aromas of guava, mandarin and pear are located at the opening of the composition. The heart is blended out of white flowers: gardenia petals, velvety Sambac jasmine and creamy orange blossom. The base consists of sandalwood, vanilla orchid and musk."
The Eau de Parfum has a floral, oriental scent. The intensive scent of guava and pears can be noticed. Followed by a soft floral scent, that reminds of gardenia. The scent of vanilla orchid and sandalwood can be perceived. The main accords are fruity and sweet. The scent is not too intensive, the intensity is soft. The scent is not too overpowering.
The top note consists of guava, mandarin orange and jasmine sambac. The middle note is made up of orange blossom and gardenia. The base notes are sandalwood, vanilla orchid and musk.
The Eau de Parfum is not long-lasting and the longevity is moderate.
I cannot recommend the Nude by Rihanna Eau de Parfum, as the fragrance is not long-lasting and the intensity is soft. The main accords are fruity and sweet.
I quite like a good fragrance,and a few weeks ago, my sister came home withthis perfume she got for £20 in Superdrug. As I recently had bought the rogue perfume I was interested to give it a sniff, and I was left rather jealous! I purchased this perfume online from the perfume shop, and I highly recommend it!
It comes in a rather strange, prism like cylindrical bottle, with an intricate beige swirly design around the base and up the neck. For £15 I was a bit disappointed as the 30ml bottle is rather small. Nevertheless, this smaller size does make it easier for me to throw in my handbag for evenings out when I need a top up, without taking up too much space. Whilst the bottle design is unique (although others in the range are same design just a different colour bottle), this bottle is really awkward to hold. I find it quite difficult to hold this perfume bottle with substantial grip with one hand, and my index finger poised on the top to get a good squirt
Spraying the perfume it comes out quite subtle and sweet – and surprisingly for Rihanna who has quite a strong personality – this is more the opposite at being very neutral, light and fruity. With a combination of top notes which are Guava Nectar, Mandarin, Pear the instant result to greet you is quite warm and summery. It blends quickly with the middle notes however of Orange Blossom, Gardenia Petals, Velvet Jasmine Sambac which balance out the sweet top notes to give a more even keel.
Similarly to the Rihanna rogue, the base notes are Sandalwood, Second-skin Musk, Vanilla Orchid, and whilst these are among my favourite types of scent, really warm, deep and inviting, the perfume wears off to feel unoriginal and way too similar.
In terms of lasting power, I feel that within an hour or so, the base notes are much more noticeable and prominent in my clothes and I prefer this smell and aroma than the initial scent of the perfume. However, I feel Rihanna has let me down again as guaranteed within 2-3 hours or so I can’t smell anything and really need a top up to feel I am getting any wear out of the perfume.
The 30ml bottle typically costs between £15 from my searching around, so I definitely recommend to shop around and be savvy, and of course me being this I got it for a decent price and with cashback! For this price, I am happy with my purchase, even though disappointed with the longevity of it, but I usually find none of the perfumes last all day anyway. It may be hard to find this again to buy which is a shame, but since it still smells nice and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg I will still give this a 4 out of 5
I have used and liked one of Rhianna's fragrances previously. I found it to be cheap and cheerful without it smelling that way. I like to have a cheaper fragrance for work so that I don't waste my more expensive ones and so I bought Nude by Rhianna.
About the fragrance
Nude is the third fragrance to have been created by the pop star. It is described as being sensual and provocative, and is apparently to be worn without anything else on at all!
At the heart of the perfume, there is a fruity and floral aroma which has been created using Orange Blossom, Velvet Jasmin Sambac and Gardenia Petals. The top notes of the fragrance are truly fruity and have been created using Guava Nectar, Mandarin and Pear. At the bottom of the perfume is a layer of warmth which has been created using Vanilla Orchids, Sandalwood and Musk.
Packaging and Price
The bottle comes contained within a clear glass which is wider at the bottom and it becomes narrower as it gets higher. It has a nude coloured pattern making it's way up the bottle which is opaque but you can still see the perfume inside which is clear and a little boring to look at. At the top, it has got a metal 'x' which is indented to look sparkly. The lid is nude in colour too. The fragrance will cost you around £15 for 30ml. 50ml and 100ml bottles are also available but these obviously cost more. It can be bought from department stores such as Boots, fragrance shops and also from a range of online websites.
Application and Performance
The spray function of this product works well and it comes out as a mist which is distributed evenly on the skin, rather than a direct stream which can make clothes and ruin fake tan. The dispenser is easy to push down on and a suitable amount of the perfume is released with each push. The fragrance is actually really strong so you won't need to use much of this in order to get the desired results. Two squirts is more than enough for me.
The initial aroma that comes when it is first applied to your skin is a strong fruity fragrance. It is a little overwhelming which is why you only need to apply a little bit but it is still very fresh and summery. The main aroma that you can smell is the mandarin which makes it quite a sweet but sharp aroma. This initial fragrance dies down quickly and fades almost completely away to be replaced by the warmth of the vanilla and musk. This is quite powdery and almost artificial smelling and it is still overpowering enough to make you feel sick. Despite the strength of the fragrance, it doesn't actually last long on the skin and it quickly dies down to nothing. It doesn't irritate my skin or mark my clothes.
All in all, I'm not sure what this fragrance is trying to achieve. It's like having two different aromas in one and it is too overpowering and strong for my liking, even if you just use a little bit. I'm handed this to one of my friends as it's no good for me. A little bit disappointing when compared to the other Rhianna fragrances.
