Super nice perfume, has good lasting quality. I love the bottle too. Very sweet and feminine yet not overpowering. It was about medium price in terms of the size of the bottle ($55 for 30ml).

I really don't understand the negative comments. My boyfriend got this for me in Christmas & I JUST LOVE IT! IS SUPER SWEET & YOUNG. If u are under 30 u really should get this fragance because u're going to love it!

One reviewer commented "Christmas in a bottle". Maybe because it is Christmas and I am wearing this next to a large pine tree in my living room; that line has stuck in my head.
I definitely get the rhubarb opening. Fresh, sparkling, bright, fruity.
The florals don't seem to develop much on me. Perhaps my chemistry? Instead it stays fairly bright and develops down into a jammy, plummy, woody feel. The sandalwood definitely sticks around the longest on me.
Again, if you need official 'notes', other reivews might be more helpful. My feelings around this are plummy, wintery, jammy, warm and ultimately, younger than I. I would love to hug someone wearing this, but I imagine a 20 something, not a late 30 something.
The bottle is aptly designed, and the shiny, plumminess (is that a word) works with the fragrance. The 'sexiness' is perhaps overrated. This would be a great fragrance for your college girlfriend, but she would still be the kind of girl you would bring home for the family Christmas party.

I hate it. I have the lotion which smells amazing but this smells like it's been loaded with hairspray. Yuck

Sweet yet sultry, but soft in both sweetness & spice, I found this fragrance very wearable (discovered it in a store on vaca last wk). Only 1 spritz on my wrist lasted not only all day but also into the next day (thanks to some that got on the cuff of my cardigan sweater). Very lovely & feminine scent! A new one for my collection. I find it to be a great warm, girly scent for winter. I wasn't expecting to like it as much as I do.

Personally I find this perfume quite intriguing. First off, the bottle is admittedly beautiful and eloquent in a sort of dark mysterious way. Ricci Ricci is spicy, musky, yet sweet which is quite different from most of my perfumes mostly being sweet or gourmand.
I find it quite strong, maybe too strong for some; if I sniff the bottle then go about with my day I can still sometimes catch notes of it in my nose if that makes sense at all! For now I would not repurchase as it feels a little too mature for me as a 19 year old and I don't wear it often enough.

This has been my signature scent for 2 years now, and if I would be writing this review last year, I would give Ricci Ricci 5 lippies. In the beginning, this smelled like christmas in a bottle to me, and believe me, I'm a big sucker for christmas.
however, this scent is down to only 3 lippies because it seems to have stopped working for me. Firstly, I don't smell it anymore and I hate it. I know that's just normal, but I don't like it, since I like to smell my own perfume. Also, i wan't to know whether I sprayed the right amount or too much, but since I don't smell it anymore I have no idea of what I actually smell like.
secondly, lately I find it to have a harsh edge to it, I don't quite know how to put it right, but something is off about the scent.
I do still love the bottle though, I think it's beautiful and sophisticated.
All in all, I loved this perfume, and I would definitely recommend it, but maybe for me, it's time to move on.

I don't think there is enough love for this product. It's maybe not as sophisticated or refined as other perfumes but it is pleasant enough. I certainly get complimented on it and it lasts all day for me. My mother is dying about it - but I have already donated her the end of my Coco Mlle, so I will finish this off myself!
I like the contrast between the sweet and the zingy. The notes are listed as follows: Bergamot, Rhubarb, Rose, Tuberose, Patch and Sandalwood.
I love the bottle. Very cute. I'm near the end of my bottle now so I am seriously considering repurchasing.

Smell like a thousand of sugar melt in your smell, I mean this is a super sweet scent, really uncomfortable smell.

Let's start off saying that I have no idea what rhubarb smells like but the opening notes are very (very!) strong but nice. But it fades much quicker than other perfumes, and perfumes usually adhere to me pretty well. After lunch, I had to really sniff my wrists to still see if it was around. Oddly enough the dry down reminded me of cocoa or coffee. I'm ok with smelling like vanilla (actually I'd prefer it), but chocolate and coffee, not so much. At least the bottle is gorgeous.

Ricci Ricci slightly disappointed me when I tried it in the winter: a fantastic, tangy rhubarb opening that reminded me of hairspray but not in a bad way. Unfortunately it didn't develop on my skin and lost its sillage pretty quickly. Now, under the heat of our Mediterranean sun and fatal levels of humidity, it reveals its depth with a blend of woods and warm, leafy, velvety flowers. Ricci Ricci makes me think of French sixties with stripey sweaters and short hair as well as a little black dress in the evening. It's a pretty fragrance, just not for me.3.5

This fragrance smells like it was inspired by apple cider... And I really, really like it for some odd reason. Excellent balance between sweet and spicy. The bottle is beauuuutiful and feels pretty durable. (i.e. If I accidently dropped this bottle, I doubt it would shatter or crack.)
Age: 25-29 Skin: Oily, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
Its ok. Smells amazing at first but within an hour its gone. Was nice while it lasted but I won't spend money on it again.

One more fragrance in the huge category of sweet fruity florals that dominate the market. It also shares one more common characteristic: it is very loud in the beginning but has poor lasting power. The scent itself is not bad but nothing original either. It kind of reminds of Lola by Marc Jacobs. Not full-bottle worthy for me and I wish I could give it 2,5 lippies.

Not a lot of love for this one, but I think it's delightful. First, love the bottle. Very pretty and different. Second, I think this is a terrific rhubarb scent with just enough sweetness to cut that tanginess. After a few minutes (the topnotes are strong) it settles into a sweet, slightly woody and soft scent that wears pretty closely to the skin. Not the greatest lasting power, but a nice scent that can be worn either day or night.

I had such high expectations for this perfume, but it ended up disappointing me immensely.
First of all, what has the ever-cool Jessica Stam in a cat-suit, playing with a guy in a gothic rooftop has got to do this with this fragrance? Watching the ad, I expected it to be dark&sweet, playful&gothic but it turned out to be one of the most ordinary fragrances I've ever tried. It is so safe that I think my mom could easily use it, and so could a 12 year old, it's super simple and dull, definitely not a trademark fragrance you'll identify with.
It certainly very feminine and smells very pleasant on a woman but it's nothing new, I feel like I've known this fragrance for years.
On a good note, it has incredible staying power, I'm totally blown away by it actually. The packaging is also super super cute and attractive, but I don't think I'll buy again, the fragrance is not exciting at all.

Love it - I dont like to have perfumes that smell too similar to each other I like them to smell recognisably different so I feel I am getting the most for the amount of money all this smelly water costs us girls and boys!!! But I do like perfumes to compliment each other as I frequently layer my perfumes because I love it when you get waft of something different every now and then throughout the day.
personally I would describe this as a slightly more mature scent perhaps over 25's im 30 in 2 months so bare that in mind its grown up sophisticated but not 'old lady' in the chanel no 5 way it still has a soft prettiness best for autumn winter.
Ricci Ricci is deep and warm quite strong and long lasting so i use sparringly but you definately get your moneys worth from it. so i use it with carolina herrera 212 VIP or Diesel fuel for life (White bottle) as they are both quite fresh so a spray or 2 of this adds a nice depth and dimension to the overall scent I create by layering.
Layering also means you get year long wear out of all your perfumes as you can make scents warmer or fresher for time of year and smell a bit more unique!!!
as per Fragrantica description :
'It is composed of rhubarb, bergamot, moonflower, Indian tuberose, centifolia rose, patchouli and sandalwood.'
I only have 3 or perfumes on the go at a time I dont like them lying around for years so I dont spend that much really. I also keep them out of direct sunlight to avoid the scents changing and going off not worth reducing life span of perfume for vanity I can show off my plenty of other things that wont be affected by the sunlight, also keep out of bathrooms as heat will alter your fragrance.

Beautiful scent! Might be too strong for some but I love it because it is very feminine and woody-floral. The bottle is so adorable!! And the scent actually lasts me a very long time with just two sprays. I like to spray it on my clothes, and sometimes when I take a sweater out of my closet (after about 5 days of it being in there) it still smells like the perfume!!

Wow lots of bad reviews means I must try, somehow nina did average with this scent. But....after the initial 15mn are done let the party begin. This is lovely, not cloying, definately sweet, this is more like a dessert in a woodsy camping ground or wearing a dark pink skirt with a pair of muddy rain boots. I'm just glad that this isn't overly vanilla-mania. Bottle cute, lovely color, but zero in the practical area.

I didnt really like this when I first smelled it, but a few hours later when I came to smell it, it was quite powdery and musky and really lovely. So I bought the small bottle and wore work it to work for a couple of weeks, got my collegues to smell my wrists a couple of times after a few hours (this is how I test perfumes, we're a close office!) and they could smell ether nothing or perhaps a tiny bit of fragrance, so, alas it's not for me, I like stronger more lasting scents.
