Bare Skin Perfume Review

Leslie Blodgett Opens Her Perfume Diaries

Leslie Blodgett, the CEO of Bare Escentuals, is coming out with her own line of fragrances based on different trips she's taken. The first scent in the Leslie Blodgett Perfume Diaries series, Bare Skin, aims to capture a vacation in Mexico. Esta bueno? Find out when you read more.

Bare Skin didn't wow me at first — but bear with me, as I'll explain. When I put it on, it was immediately powdery and floral (which, though a lot of people love those scents, just aren't for me). I gave it a few minutes to develop and sniffed again. Now it was sweeter, very plumeria, with a sharp whiff of pepper. It came out of the bottle strong, but it quiets down significantly, and I much prefer the less powerful but more complex heart of the scent to the top. It finishes creamy and a little fruity on me (thanks to the labdanum in it, probably), with some sandalwood, too.

Overall, it's a scent that I didn't love for the first 10 minutes but found pleasant for the duration of the wear. It was very soft on me after about two hours, but lasted faintly on my skin for much longer. If you enjoy Estee Lauder Sensuous or the very top part of Lolita Lempicka (the scents begin similarly, but are totally different after about five minutes), this could be a scent you enjoy.
