I was first drawn to the pretty apple bottle, of course. It's so cute! Then I spritzed on the scent and I loved it. I'm not normally a fan of anything so fruity, but it's so light and refreshing in the warm summer months when my heavier scents are too much. I love the lemon-lime undertones. It's like mixing apple juice with a little Sprite.
Candy-sweet, a bright sort of candy-watermelon at first, some kind of toffee/burnt sugariness later. Pretty smooth going on the skin, nothing funky, off-putting, or unexpected to it. Lovely bottle.
This is a pretty, soft fragrance, and I do get that toffee note on my skin, but this has "0" staying power on me, I don't even smell it after a few minutes. Glad to try a sample spray, but no sale for me.
This was another unsniffed purchase on eBay, bought solely based on online reviews. At first, I was quite apprehensive since the last time I bought another sweet, gourmand-type perfume unsniffed online was Miss Dior Cherie 3 years ago & boy, did I REALLY regret that one. However, all my worries instantly vanished the minute I sprayed on Nina. Wow! Absolutely magical! It's sugary but the vanilla, praline, musk & woods keep it from being cloyingly sweet, & that toffee apple note really IS delicious! In fact, I'm wearing Nina right now & I can't help smiling as I'm typing this. It really is a casual, fun, youthful, everyday scent! And the fact that it can be worn by both young girls & grown women alike makes me adore it even more.
My only complaint is that it's not available in the EDP, because as with most EDTs nowadays, the staying power is pathetic. Unless I spray some on my clothes, I can hardly smell anything after 20 minutes. And I'm the type who's not very fond of the idea of reapplying every few hours. Moreover, with the tiny 30ml bottle I have now & the amount of reapplying I have to do, it won't be long before my recently acquired bottle empties. As someone whose perfumes generally last several years, this definitely does not make me the least bit happy. Hopefully, the folks at Nina Ricci will come to their senses & come out with the EDP soon.
I am a big fragrance lover, and I own quite a few scents. But ever since my third pregnancy last year, I have not been able to wear ANY perfume without it giving me a headache or making me dizzy, even fragrances that I always wore frequently. I didnít think Iíd ever be able to use up the bottles of fragrance I already own, let alone buy another one. But when I saw this in the store, the display really caught my eye and the bottle was so cute that I had to give it a try. I loved the smell of it immediately but I braced myself for the headache I knew would be comingÖbut it didnít. It was the first perfume Iíd worn in months that didnít make me miserable within minutes of spraying it. I didnít buy it right away even though my husband LOVED it on me, because I started thinking about all that unused perfume I had at home. I thought, ďOkay, maybe this is a sign that I can finally wear perfume again.Ē But when I wore the other ones afterward I still got headaches from them. So today I revisited that same store and tried this out again, and killed a few hours around the shopping center to see how Iíd be affected. No headache! I donít know whatís different about this fragrance, but itís the only one Iíve been able to wear without nasty side effects since forever. I bought a 2.7 oz. bottle and it came with a small tube of the Nina body lotion and a super-cute smaller version of the fragrance to keep in my purse. I am so happy that I finally found a perfume I could wear comfortably that Iíve been sniffing my wrists all night! This will probably be the only fragrance I will ever repurchase in the future--I love it, my hubby loves it, and it doesnít make me nauseous. Iím proud to say that I now have a new signature perfume!
Used the tester at the store. Loved the scent but as I walked around I began to itch. Guess I'm allergic but it sure does smell wonderful. 5 on smell and packing have to give it a 2 for reaction.
OMG!!!! i just receieved my miniture of this fragrance today, yay! i am soooooooooooooo happy with this one, it's absolutly fantastic, the fragrance ive been waiting for all my life...ITS AMAZING. has lasting power, it's the juiciest, most prettiest scent i have ever incountered out of all the fruity fragrances!!! its amazing and lasts a very long time on my skin (so far) it comes in the most gorgeous bottle, and the miniture version is just sooo adorable! if i can give this a 10 out of 10 i would, it's incredible, no really...try it ;) No artificial notes in this one.
Well, another perfume which takes my attention. First of all, the bottle is so cute, like Marc Jacobs Daisy. Second, the smell is sweet, light and seductive, which is appropriate for the girls who are in love.
LOVE this fragrance!! I rarely find a fragrance that wows me. I usually use Philosophy Amazing Grace- understated, clean, light and fresh. I could describe this perfume the same way except with a SEXY kick to it! Kinda spicy, kinda sweet but not overly cloying/annoying sweet like that Pink Sugar crap. I sprayed this on myself as a trial at Sephora and didn't even pay attention to what I was spraying (I was on my phone). I went home and was wondering "what is that amazing smell"??? What did I spray on myself today??? I HAVE TO BUY THIS!!!" The dry-down is soooo nice. I LOVE smelling my shirt after taking it off and wearing this perfume. Mmm! My DH even likes it. I get compliments from women everywhere I go. They write it down and go on a search to buy it! :) It lasts a long time. Oh, and the little apple bottle is cute too!
Toffee apple... Yeap, it is definitely there. Smells nice on skin. I will keep sampling it to make up my mind about it but I can already say that it smells way better than DKNY Delicious or Red Delicious. The DKNY apple perfumes are just synthetic, apple shampoo smelling concoctions that I cannot stand.
Nina is alright so far, although nothing extremely special or original.
I do not like the name, especially as it appears there has already been a previous perfume under the same name.
The bottle is nice, but after Lolita Lempicka around for so many years, the Nina apple is not that striking at all.
All in all I thin this is a well rounded perfume idea that fits well with the already existing trend.
