If Bobbi Brown Beach and Bliss Bliss Perfume had a baby it would be Urban Decay Go Naked Perfume Oil. Urban Decay Go Naked Perfume Oil ($24) is an upcoming fragrance inspired by the cult favorite Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palettes. Yup, Urban Decay is entering the world of perfume and why not right? Just this past Spring they decided to launch an entire line of skincare that included moisturizer, cleansers, and more. The next best thing would be to head into the realms of bath and body as well right? But don’t forget nearly ten years ago Urban Decay Revolver Fragrance Oil was around….! Remember that?!
Sadly, Urban Decay Go Naked Perfume Oil is a limited edition release. Umm, why? It smells amazing! I have hopes when this launches they might actually surprise us with a perfume but for now all I know is they are releasing this in a perfume oil format that’s 0.16 oz in size.
For now, I’m just loving all over this soothing, comforting scent. The inspiration behind the fragrance was to create a “naked” scent, something that wears close to the skin and has a natural note to it without being overwhelming. Urban Decay calls it a lavender and orange blossom scented with notes of lavender, neroli, and sea salt. It’s a fragrance that will remind you of a days on the beach or a indulgent day at the spa. It’s a very relaxing fragrance that wears close to the body without being intrusive or overwhelming but still managing to leave a pretty linger in the air around you.
This comes housed in a clear glass rollerball bottle with a rose gold sunburst cap that mimics Urban Decay’s Naked Collection packaging. It’s a pretty small amount so, I imagine you’ll want to grab a backup or two if really is as limited as they are marketing as being. I know I’ll be grabbing a second one when it officially launches as I really liked the scent. It deserves mentioning I’m a little blah on orange blossom scents. There are a few orange blossoms scents I really love like Lush Happy Happy Joy Joy Conditioner. But many just don’t tickle my nose or heart and I tend to avoid them. Urban Decay did a fine job with this scent though and it should be very appealing to those who enjoy beach-y fragrances as well as orange blossom ones.
This isn’t a strong scent but it is one that lingers for several hours. You do have to get up close and intimate in order to smell it as it wears quite close to the skin. It opens up with a burst of orange blossom followed by a splash of ozonic sea salt. It’s like walking on crushed orange blossoms in the middle of a deserted beach while the wind blows the fragrance of the blossoms back into your face. I really have to close my eyes to smell the lavender. Lavender can be intrusive and come across very herbally to my nose but I think the neroli truly overpowers it here.
I find it interesting that with three simple notes, Urban Decay managed to create such an interesting fragrance. It’s very relaxing scent that’s comforting yet quite sensual as well! It’s understandable why they called it Naked.
Urban Decay Go Naked Perfume Oil should be a hit with fragrance lovers everywhere. Not to mention rabid Urban Decay will adore this! I liked it a lot and think it’ll make a great Summer scent.
