Another week, another review! Yes, another perfume, AGAIN!!! 😛 Well, this one was a birthday gift to my sister from a friend, and I was overjoyed! I think I need help 😛 Here is the review! Gosh, I’m in good mood, eh?
A fresh, fruity and floral fragrance. The freshness of frosted neroli, with also the softness and femininity of apple blossom, the sensuality of gardenia, and full bodied white musk… the breeze of youth, bright, light and sensual.
Top notes: grape fruit, apple, mandarin orange and neroli.
Middle notes: watery notes, cherry and gardenia.
Base notes: Musk.
My Experience with Nina Ricci L’Eau Eau Fraiche Vaporisateur Spray:
The immediate spritz of the perfume smells like stale beer, I’ll tell you this. I know, not very good. Then it takes about ten minutes for the real notes to set in. They claim right when they say that it is a fruity fragrance, because it is. Not over the top fruity, but that’s all I get over it being fresh and floral as per the claim. It does smell floral in bits, but very lightly so, always accompanied by the zing of the mandarin orange and a barely-there apple note. Yes, it is also a watery note fragrance, and I love watery note fragrances. It always gives you that smooth, steady ripple to your senses when you take a whiff off it or the wind picks it up. The gardenia comes on strong and quite quick, again accompanied with a lemony feel. Then comes the musk, which is quite strong.
The change of notes is quite rapid as is with this format of fragrances as the concentration of the notes is the lightest. The smell of the fragrance lasts for only about an hour or two because of such less concentration, which is not very satisfactory, but less concentration is LESS CONCENTRATION..WUAH WUAH. Mad me. The watery note as well as the other ingredients makes the perfume a summer wear, fit for mornings and maybe evenings in the beaches. Oooohhh, beaches…*daydreams*.. love.. maybe, Rati and Sanjeev could do more beaches this year, I don’t know?! Gosh, my mind is getting sidetracked. FOCUS. Oh, yeah, you could wear it anywhere, really. Yes! Back on track, like a queen!
The perfume comes in that standard apple-shaped bottle of the “Nina” collection and in light pink! PINK!! UHHH.. I am a sucker for pink. The box has a double cover that keep our perfume double safer, that was a terrible construction of a sentence. Bad. I think Burberry Body is like the safest, covered perfume in its range. Anyway, the atomizer works great, spritz the right amount. The cap is cool too. Fits on and off without hassle or being too easy.
Pros of Nina Ricci L’Eau Eau Fraiche Vaporisateur Spray:
- The bottle, really.
- The light fruity, mainly, but lightly orange-lemony feel to the barely-there apple and flowers.
- Great summer wear as it is light and watery and makes your senses go on a slow and gentle fruity ride.
Cons of Nina Ricci L’Eau Eau Fraiche Vaporisateur Spray:
- The power of the perfume is bland even for a summer perfume.
- The smell stays on for only about an hour or two.
Would I Repurchase Nina Ricci L’Eau Eau Fraiche Vaporisateur Spray?
Nope, doesn’t last long enough. The sillage is like zero. You have to take a whiff of it at the point of application to smell it or if a strong wind picks it up.
