Aether Arts Nude Moderne Perfume Oil Review

Aether Arts Nude Moderne

Aether Arts Nude Moderne is a skin-scent musk. It’s rather simple but composing a simple musk is harder than it appears. I would compare Nude Moderne to those “no makeup makeup” looks. They look effortless and bare but in reality it takes at least 8-10 products to achieve such effortlessness! It takes a lot to perfect such a musk.

Nude Moderne is a soft musk. Like I’ve already said, it’s a skin scent. There’s little transition with the fragrance. The opening displays some brightness, almost like an Armenian cucumber. The rest of Nude Moderne is a delicate, super soft, powdery musk reminding me of clean skin in the sun. It has a warmth and a subtle sweetness.

Notes listed include musk accord, sweet nothings, labdanum and understated confidence. Launched 2013. PERFUMER – Amber Jobin

Give Nude Moderne a try if you like soft musk scents. Or if you like perfumes like Skye Botanicals Fuzzy Blue Blanket, Avon Soft Musk, Serge Lutens Clair de Musc and/or Jovan White Musk. Nude Moderne is unisex. I also want to add that the musks are synthetic in this fragrance.

Projection is below average, possibly non-existent and that’s the point – to smell like “you”. Longevity is above average.

The 5.5 ml retails for $49 at Aether Arts’. Samples are also available for purchase.

Victoria’s Final EauPINIONThe epitome of “skin scent”, a soft musk. It would seem like a “no brainer” but in reality, a good skin-scent/musk isn’t easy to find. This is the perfume equivalent of the “no makeup” makeup look.

  1. whoa. i thought Aether Arts was an all-natural perfume house? i guess that doesn’t make sense if she is a protogee of DSH.

    i loved Fuzzy Blue Blanket, although it was very much like a kids version of a nag champa. (or at least the soft patchouli reminded me of a head shop for kids.)

    i am excited to experience Aether Arts… but not so much synthetic musks. bummer. i guess this will be a sample only situation.

    1. The line is mixed media. In the descriptions, she gives a “break-down” of the percentages of naturals/synths used. I think the line may have a few all-naturals.

      I have such a soft spot in my heart for nag champa which may explain why I liked Fuzzy Blue Blanket so much. It went powdery on me and powdery in a really good way.
