I don't hide the fact that I adore Nanadebary
(now known as Nanadebary Pink), I've also posted reviews on Nanadebary Cosmic Mist
and Nanadebary Green
in the past but had never reviewed Nanadebary Bronze. I tried this last fall and felt incredibly mixed about it mainly because I felt it could be better and had all but written it off until I decided to re-test it today.
The notes in Nanadebary Bronze according to Beautyhabit are:
Top: Bergamot, Mandarin, Ylang-ylang
Middle: Rose, Jasmine, Tuberose
Bottom: Iris, Sandalwood, Cedar, Cinnamon
Aedes, Lucky Scent and Luscious Cargo add notes of amber, vanilla, musk and Aedes and Luscious Cargo also list patchouli.
I don't get any citrus from this fragrance, nor much floral from it either unless the weather is really hot like it is today and then you get a slight hint of it. On me, it's more amber than anything else on me with hints of woods, cinnamon and vanilla.
While this certainly couldn't take the place of my beloved Nanadebary Pink, I have really fallen in love with this fragrance. The cinnamon made an even bigger appearance today than it has in the past. I was limiting this to a colder weather fragrance but it smelled wonderful today, such a great all day fragrance in any kind of weather! The lasting power like the rest of the Nanadebary line isn't the best but for the time that it lasts on my skin, I am in heaven!
Nanadebary Bronze retails for$70/1.7 oz pr $130/3.3 oz. and is sold at Aedes
