Such a lovely fragrance, I tend to buy the small 30ml bottles for holidays or just for in the bottom of my handbag. I always get this for christmas/ birthdays because everyone knows I use it a lot and it is a very reasonable price. Still not my all-time favourite but it's definitely a front runner and I always have a bottle handy!
I love this!i was really excited to try it,and so I sprayed it on in ulta.I had to spray twice on one arm,though because each spray was really weak.I don't know if it's the bottle design,that certain bottle was a dud,or I maybe I just didnt press hard enough.this isn't too overwhelmingly strong,which is nice.it's just really sweet and fresh and happy and fruity and I love it!i can see this working all year round!I also love the bottle because it looks like an elegant apple. And thr silver leaves are so pretty!
Woooot!!!!Got this for Christmas!:D
It's lovely cute fragrance. It really does smell rather like toffee apples but with a nice dose of flowers also. Nice sweet and sour but still feminine.
I find it has good lasting power. But I would prefer it to be a bit more subtle. It's a bit sickly when I put too much on.
I have often brought this along with me on holiday because the bottle is small and the fragrance is versatile - good both day and evening + summer and winter imo. (The leaves broke off the bottle recently (sniff) during travels though)
It's a nice upbeat fragrance and makes me happy when I wear it.
I love, love, LOVE this perfume. It embodies every scent I adore- fruity, a touch of floral (but not much), vanilla which gives it a slight cotton candy smell, and cedar. This is my HG #2... My HG #1 is Diptyque Tam Dao.
I just LOVE this perfume! Absolutely beautiful.
I LOVE the smell of this purfume! It's sweet, but the sandlewood and cedar balences the sweetness very well, so there isn't an overpowering chemical smell to it. Very natural.
The bottle is also cute. It looks good just sitting in the bathroom.
I have already re-bought this fragrance twice.
This smells sooo good!!!!! I am very critical for perfumes and for that reason I never wear them.... Until I found this one. It is extremely subtle and smells very fruity and sweet. The bottle is soo cute and very well made. Will definitely repurchase!
A very bright and clean scent. It has a very fine balance of a fresh and sultry. This is a very good, everyday daytime scent. I wore this regularly for school because the scent actually has surprisingly amount of lasting power. And it can be layered very well. So it never becomes overpowering.
As other reviewers have mentioned, for some reason, this scent turns heads. I cant remember how many people asked me what I was wearing whenever I wore this scent.
I wouldnt buy this perfume again for the sole reason that I'm a perfume fanatic, so while I would love to buy it again, there are other ones on my list to try next! That said, it could easily be my signature scent!
After wearing BBW products for pretty much my entire life, I decided a few months ago to upgrade to an actual perfume and give that a shot. Because it was spring and summer was approaching, I wanted a lighter scent that wouldn't turn funky smelling in the humid Midwest weather. After sampling Thierry Mugler's Angel (which smelled absolutely horrific on me and took me forever to wash off) and sniffing a few other not-very-exciting scents, I settled on this one.
At first application, it smelled great with my body chemistry and I got compliments from friends and strangers alike. But the dry down was VERY sweet. After a few minutes of gorgeous fruit smells it ends up just smelling sugary. Sugary scents are good for some folks, but not for me. The staying power was also poor for this fragrance. I would say it lasted 3-5 hours max on me. In order to make sure I hadn't just gotten used to the smell, I made my partner sniff me a few times when I'd get home from work to see if he could still detect the scent. Nada. So my first experience branching out from BBW was disappointing to say the least, but if you have cash to burn and like sweeter smells, then I say give this one a shot.
An old favorite! I have been nursing a 1 oz bottle for over a year, and of course (just look at my reviews) I've used other perfumes, but I always get the whim to come back to Nina. It's one of the few scents I can't really describe, ironically, because it smells so different from many gourmands out there. I know it should smell like apple on some level, but I don't get very much apple while I wear it! I's warm and very creamy, as well as quite sweet. Not headache inducing, but sweet. I have no problem with that, as I'm sure you can see.
I have seen Nina slammed in several perfume blogs for being immature, simplistic and cloying... which is surprising to me, honestly. (Pink Sugar seems much more juvenile than this. And it makes me dizzy.) I do feel like the advertising mythology is ridiculous- look up the ad copy if you feel like being amused- and unnecessary. However, this is one of my favorite perfumes... I never seem to get tired of it... and my body chemistry works well with it.
Oh, and this really doesn't matter to me very much, but in my experience Nina attracts people (male and female) like catnip grabs cats. Coco Mademoiselle is the only other perfume I've worn that renders such enthusiasm! I mean, if I like something I'm wearing it for myself, but sometimes it's nice to drive your sweetie crazy just by wafting a certain smell. Right?
