My favorite thing to do in the Fall and Winter is to put a pot of soup on to simmer, get some fresh bread going, light some candles, start a fire in the fireplace, grab a book, and wrap up in a throw on the couch.
That's what Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Liquid Nude (released this month) reminds me of, only with more expensive versions of my kitchen, candles, and throw plus a nice bath and a glass of good wine.
This is what we call "a flanker scent". Meaning, it's a companion scent to another perfume. You're more than likely familiar with Donna Karan Cashmere Mist? I had heard of it, but not smelled it. Apparently this flanker, Liquid Nude, is softer and more powdery than the original.
At any rate, here's what we know about DKCMLN...
A tall, slender, undulating peachy-beige glass flacon.
Note: I tried a mini-sample, so can't speak to anything else about the bottle.
"Donna Karan's Cashmere Mist Liquid Nude eau de parfum spray: a fragrance to seduce the senses. Soft and sensuous. Wrap yourself in luxury with the new scent from Donna Karan. Cashmere Mist Liquid Nude eau de parfum spray has been reinterpreted to provoke the sense of second skin with smooth, warm musks and creamy woods...caressing the skin in a veil of sensuous indulgence."
Impressions: Soft and sensuous indeed. It's cozy, but not warm. It's not cool, either, but suited for cool weather. It whispers and nuzzles. To me, it's all musk and jasmine, but neither are harsh or sharp. Again, "soft" is the key word here. It's not really a romantic or overtly sexy scent, even with the jasmine, but that's not to say a cozy moment couldn't turn...
Wear: Excellent. Hours after applying it, I catch whiffs of it sometimes when I turn quickly and run itno my own wake. I also noticed it hanging quite nicely on the sleeves of a sweater I toss on. A pleasant surprise! Naturally, when I nuzzle my wrist (I do this often with this perfume), it smells great.
Throw: Minimal. It's a close-to-the-skin scent.
$72 US for 1.7oz. Pricey.
For me, this is worth a full-bottle buy.
