I am more of a perfume addict than a makeup addict. I love the Arabic scent of oud and also enjoy the citrusy and floral scents which is a must-have for summers. It is really amazing how a squirt of your favourite scent can make your mood go from all so grumpy and sad to happy and chirpy. Today, I will be reviewing the famous Estee Lauder Sensuous Eau de Parfum Spray. I was window shopping through a mall here in Kuwait and that is when an SA asked me if I wanted to just see through the perfumes they had there and I was like why not! After testing, I was tempted to buy this perfume. Let’s see how this perfume turned out.

My Experience with Estee Lauder Sensuous Eau de Parfum Spray:
I love the small cute bottle it comes in with a gold-copperish coloured cap. It is definitely travel friendly but be careful as the bottle is made of glass. I love the fact that instead of top, middle and base notes, they have used the terms warm, feminine and luminous. It sounds more attractive.
This is more of a woody fragrance with a spicy touch. It is not at all citrusy or floral. It is so feminine and does all justification to its name “sensuous.” When it settles, I do detect the soft honey smell. It’s a comfortable scent. It is that type of scent that makes one feel all sophisticated at the same time can bring out the fun part in you, but it is not a summer scent. I have kept this aside for winters. You can wear it to work and also out in the evenings. It is not at all overpowering.
Pros of Estee Lauder Sensuous Eau de Parfum Spray:
- Woody scent apt for winters.
- Does not stain clothes.
- Not at all overpowering, even for sensitive noses.
- Elegant and cute bottle.
- 30 ml bottle is travel friendly, but must be careful because of the glass bottle it comes in.
- Smells more expensive. The scent is warm and cosy mainly because of the amber with a touch of honey and spice.
- Totally sensuous and does justice to its name.
- Staying power is great, lasts for about 6 hours after which it becomes faint.
- This scent relaxes me so very much.
Cons of Estee Lauder Sensuous Eau de Parfum Spray:
- Winter perfume and a big no for summers.
- Beauties who love floral and citrusy scents must stay away from this.
- Nothing else I can think of.
