The BEST perfume... in the world... ever! I am the type that is constantly buying new fragrance hoping it will be "the one" but once I'm half through the bottle, I'm over it. I'm now on my third bottle of Nina and can't get enough! It is sweet, flirty, sexy.... perfect!
Sephora description: "The fragrance incorporates top notes of Calabrese Lemon and Cipirinha Lime for a sparkling and spontaneous beginning. Midnotes of Red Toffee Apple and Vanilla Infusion create a charming and seductive femininity and Moonflower and Peony Petals add gentle and delicate breath. Rounding it out are base notes of Apple Tree Wood and Cotton Musk ending in a tender sensual caress."
I can only describe it as a sexy candy apple, lol, which does not do it justice. It's light and fruity and seductive all at the same time. I love it and so does my husband.
BTW this is the first real perfume I've purchased because I fell in love with the scent. Before this I was kinda anti-perfume and only used lotions for scent.
I have to admit I was attracted to this because of the pretty bottle. Upon first sniff at the store I didn't like it at all, it was just too sweet. But, I ended up getting a sample of it in a kit, and fell in love. I wouldn't call it an everyday scent, it's a little too strong and sweet for that, but I use it as my "special" scent, when I just want to feel glamorous and special.
Edit: 1/1/09 I was wrong - I actually wear this every day now. I gave it a rest for summer, but in the colder months it's just perfect. It also has great lasting power. This is a definite keeper!
How inlove with this am I? VERY!
I honestly think it's like a miracle love-potion to attract guys! He he... It smells fruity , maybe a bit too strong and sweet at first ( im not into overly sweet fragrances ) , but goes on quite subtle after a while. The staying power is not as powerful as Id like to , but it's worth the price . If you're looking to mesmerise a particular guy ( without him quite knowing what it makes his head spin like that around you ) , go for this one , girls :-D
what a pleasant smell, what a perfume of sheer cuteness, loveliness. This is a woman who has not grown up, and I am planning to wear this when I'm seventy, too. (My years in between will be spent in my vain search for a signature scent) On me, Nina does not have the distinctive notes of apples or toffee, but comes with a unique fragrance that connotes both innocence and naughtiness. the slightly floral undertones separate her from her sweeter sisters. The only downfall: on me, the staying power of this heavenly smell is less than zero. I once went through a whole 100 ml. bottle in a month (and left an expression of bliss on many men:)) Therefore, it boils down to be an expensive fragrance for me. Still, I would bathe in it if I could.
The bottle of this perfume is cute, so when my mom bought this for me for my birthday, I was excited. Unfortunately, this does not work with my body chemistry. On me, it is way too cloying and sweet, almost nauseating. Even if I only do one spritz, it still gives the same effect. The sillage of this is good - lasts through the day. I think I am going to have to swap/give this away.
A really cute fragrance. It's light, fruity, and not cloying at all. The scent is young but not immature. I love the packaging but I'd never buy anything based on that. It has a decent amount of staying power and I'm regretting my decision to buy the small bottle.
I really like this smell. It's sweet and sexy. And the bottle is very cute. I tried it in a store, and then had to go back the next day to purchase it. The first bottle lasted about a year, and I've repurchased it a couple of times ever since. I even had strangers comment on it.
I first found this perfume while skimming through a magazine and smelled the sample and I basically fell in love with it. I also tried it out in a department store and one spritz on my neck stayed on the entire day! I even smelled some of it still on me the next morning. It's just as pricey as perfumes sold in department stores. It's a fruity and floral fragrance and it's a very feminine scent. I don't really like overbearing or strong perfumes, so this is nice, light, and airy. $69 for a 2.7 oz, I believe. I haven't purchased it yet, but I definitely will soon.
My new signature fragrance! Love it so much - the scent is sweet and fruity, but not overpoweringly so. Not as generic as some make it out to be - the gourmand notes can be seen so, but I think this one has some extra magic that sets it far apart.
I can imagine a young woman wearing it, one whose head (like mine) is filled with dreams and thoughts of fairytales and romance. When I wear it, I feel more girly and charismatic. Guys love this fragrance too! One of my guy friends followed me the whole day constantly sniffing me, his exact words being "You smell like a princess...an edible princess." LOL.
Top notes are quite fruity, light and sweet, very refreshing and pretty. Middle notes are more toffee-apple-ish, with more depth and complexity, little hints that there is more to this girl than just sweetness and innocence. The drydown is a little musky, still very sweet with some hints of apple.
And the bottle is gorgeous too~ which is of course a plus. I got mine through ebay, so it was much cheaper than usual. If you're a fan of the House of Escada, Fantasy by Britney, and Incanto, this one's for you.
