Estée Lauder Sensuous Solid Perfume


Sometimes a product can really surprise you. I received this solid perfume in a package from Estée Lauder. Normally I am not a fan of solid perfumes. I find that they don't have the same depth as their counterparts and usually fade after a very short period of time. So, when I opened up this Sensuous solid, I wasn't expecting much from this pretty compact.

In truth, I like this solid even more than the original. Sensuous has this strange thing of warm feminine and luminous notes rather than top, middle and base notes. This is definitely a warm and woodsy scent. On me the Amber and Sandalwood notes are the most prominent, though the Jasmine lingers in the background doing it's job as a "feminine" note.

Warm Notes: Molten Woods, Amber
Feminine Notes: Jasmine, Ghost Lily, Magnolia, Ylang
Luminous Notes: Black Pepper, Sandalwood, Honey, Mandarin Orange Pulp

While warm and woodsy, this isn't overly oppressive. Instead, it is more warm and embrassing, but doesn't scream out "I'm wearing a woodsy scent!" I've enjoyed wearing it recently, but I'm going to save it to wear this fall. I think it might just be perfect for a crisp fall day, preferably at the Farmer's Market or a football game.

Oh yeah, did I mention that it lasts most of the day?

  1. I've never tried solid perfumes before, but the bottle of my favorite is now officially finished so I might have to give a solid one a try.

  2. I never tried solid perfumes yet, but I like the amber and jasmine notes. Can you tell me something about the price?

  3. OK, I have to admit, I am incredibly jealous! I clicked on the link to this fabulous-sounding solid, and found it retails for $120! That definitely quashed my thoughts of heading out to the store to check it out.

I love comments! Please ask away, provide info on how you liked something, etc. Note that spam, comments with random links (which I count as spam), anything not in english (again, spam) and comments that are completely unrelated to anything will all be deleted.
