New Nude Fragrances

Trend Alert: Naked Is the New Thing in Fragrance

If your dream perfume smells exactly like a naked person, then you're in luck, because there's a whole crop of new scents designed for closet nudists. Most recently, Nasomatto Nuda ($144), a scent that's supposed to embody "the translucence of our senses, nude desire," and Nudité Intense ($48), which smells like "a sheer, diaphanous wisp of nude skin," became available. And that's not all.

Mémoire Liquide created No. 502 Nudité Absolue Parfum ($65), there's naked-skin scented Perfect Veil Pure Perfume Oil ($40) from Sarah Horowitz Parfums, and even big fragrance houses have gotten in on the act, with fragrances like Stella McCartney's new Stella Nude ($45), which "evokes the softness of skin." I think I can see the appeal of wearing something that smells like a very good version of nothing, but what do you think? Is this a trend you'll be stripping down for?

Maybe it's the word "nude" in the name that's trendy.

I use Nudité Intense, but I don't agree with the description...."a sheer, diaphanous wisp of nude skin" I bought it because I loved the scent... I can't really describe it, but it doesn't smell like skin, haha. It's really subtle (my boyfriend noticed it first when up REAL close, haha), and is actually good for layering with other perfumes. I really like it. My only issue is that I wish it came in spray bottle form and not just roller-ball.

Postmod, the couple of "nude" scents I've smelled lately have had very little in common, really, except that as a group they remind me of a warmer, much less soapy version of Clean.

If nude implies lighter and less headache-inducing scents, then I'm all for this trend.

Hmmm... I'm having a hard time imagining what "nude" is supposed to smell like. I keep thinking of maybe a very mild version of Donna Karan Cashmere Mist (which always smelled a little like baby powder on me).
