Beautiful incense with a peppery twist

Missk, parfumo.net

  • Summary: Nu is a fragrance that I don't tend to hear much of. While it seems to have disappeared from most stores, there are a few select places that I know still stock it. I was lucky enough to try Nu, although I would have loved the opportunity to sample the EDP as well. Nu is quite a spicy and sharp fragrance at first. As it settles, the jasmine and iris tend to create a soft, loving bouquet, which is complimented by rather peppery cardamom.

Still a good scent

  • Excerpt: This NU is similar to the 2001 version. However the original parfum spray had a longer lasting scent. This newer version only lasts about an hour, and the previous one lingered all day!

  • Summary: The fact that Nu was a marketing flop and has since been discontinued borders on criminal in my opinion! Of course, I am not blameless. When this fragrance was released in 2001, I was a total ‘fume snob. I wore only niche fragrances. Until I realized that the same perfumers working in the niche houses are the same that work with the prestige brands, that is. Nu reminds me of my former ignorance and helps me keep my commitment to being an equal opportunity sniffer.

  • Summary: I found this last week at TJ Maxx for 29.99 for 3.4 oz. I had it back in 2001when it was first released. I wore it last night and compared my notes from 2001 in my fragrance journal -- pretty much feel the same....although the price was much better this time! Nu is a glamorous, exotic, spiced amber oriental that manifests depth, complexity, and drama without undue bulk or opacity.

  • Summary: Oh how I wish they had left out the black pepper, I know many like this as a note but it really doesn't work for me and I get lots of Pepper in this. The rest is just lovely and would be a gorgeous oriental for me without the pepper. Oh well.

  • Summary: Just received my bottle of "NU". Wow! The initial blast is a watered down "opium". It's drying down to a peppery powder. I love old fashioned as well as "quirky" fragrances right now. One of the most important reasons for me to choose a scent is that no one will recognize it. I love wearing "Old Spice" and spritzing on some Paul Smith "Rose" over it! This one fits the bill quite nicely.

  • Summary: I have worn this incensey, spicy, peppery, metallic for a decade, and I love it. My boyfriend calls it my Blood perfume. I don't even know what that means, but I always get texts every so often from exes saying that someone walked by wearing that "round perfume" that I always used to wear. I like that few people wear it. I like intense perfumes that most people don't like, and incensey ones are a weakness of mine. I notice this is getting to be harder to find.
