Beautiful incense with a peppery twist
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. The overall blend has a somewhat smoky aroma.

The composition has a bite to it. Nu is not a fragrance for the shy. There are so many dynamic ingredients that it's quite flabbergasting to find how beautifully balanced they all become on the skin. It's an incense-based fragrance, yes. However, the pepper and floral accords really give this fragrance that little something more.

Up-close, Nu may tingle your nose a little. It has enough peppery-ness to make you want to sneeze. However from a distance, this fragrance is something special, despite being quite heady stuff.

The longevity is really impressive, as is the sillage of course, as you may have gathered. Really a shock to think this is not something that YSL proudly sells anymore. I find Nu far more captivating than the patchouli-oriental, Elle. It's worth discovering.
