    Those notes don’t sound very “nude,” but I’m curious.

    • Robin says:

      Me too…I like the brand’s fragrances. Haven’t even tried the last one yet (Pop) though.

  2. MelissaJane says:

    The cardamon and cumin often give off a body odor note. Is that what they mean by “au naturel” ? Now we have gone from skin-type natural scents to really stinking! :)

  3. Zubi says:

    cardamom AND cumin? No thank you. I have a few Tauer samples in my drawer to remind me what my Indian family’s kitchen smells like!

    *Note: I suspect I cannot stand these notes simply because I am half Indian, as it just reminds me too much of kitchens*

    • Robin says:

      I love cardamom in fragrance. Cumin — depends on how strong it is.

      • Zubi says:

        What is utterly weird, is that it’s cumin I def cannot stand the most, yet I love Aziyade and it just makes me happy every time I wear it.

  4. Emily says:

    Hmm, I don’t know a thing about Costume National’s fragrances, but the list of notes contains a lot of my favorites. Are these scents distributed at all in the States?

  5. Anne from Makeupwoot says:

    This one sounds challenging to say the least. I’ll have to pick up a sample.

  6. Ida says:

    Bottle and packaging – fabulous!

  7. MichelleAntonia says:

    The cedar is sparking my interest, especially in combination with rose… I had and loved their Scent Gloss perfume, but this sounds a bit warmer.
