I can't believe this is my last full week of freedom until I'm back in college next week, waah! as much as I wish I could continue to lay in bed until the afternoon it means I can start a Christmas countdown (never too early). I was kindly sent a few things from Fragrance Direct that I'll be reviewing in the coming weeks. If you didn't already know, Fragrance Direct sell discounted perfumes, cosmetics and hair care products. The prices are honestly jaw droppingly good! :)
Nina Ricci Nina Eau de Toilette Spray 30ml - c/o Fragrance Direct
I first came across a Nina Ricci perfume at my sisters house that I really loved the smell of. I can't remember which one it was but I decided to go for another one which was this Nina Ricci Nina Eau de Toilette. I have to admit at first I wasn't actually too keen on the smell as I am so used to only wearing really floral and girly perfumes but after having tried this for a while now, it really has grown on me. There's something so sexy and mature about the smell that has really got be hooked onto it. Again, it's so different from what I usually wear but it's so nice to change things up. For me personally, it's more a scent that I'd put on during the evening if I was going out for dinner rather than all day wear.
This contains top notes of amalfi lemon and lime, praline and apple. I love the packaging it comes in and the fact that this is an apple type scent and the bottle is shaped like an apple. I'd say it lasts for about 6 hours before you need just another little spray but as this will be my evening perfume I don't think I'll need to spray more. I think this really is a great perfume especially for the winter months. I can see this lasting me a really good while. This has most definitely made me want to venture out and start buying more perfumes that I wouldn't usually go for. This 30ml bottle is £22.50 on the website. This would make the perfect gift for somebody and is also a great size to throw into your bag.
Have you tried any perfumes from Nina Ricci?
