"This is the Nina Ricci Les Belles de Ricci, Eau de Toilette, I have come to talk to your leader, offering peace between the planets of the universe, and if not such a thing acceptable, open war that will make that Independence Day movie look like a romantic comedy..."
Ok, you probably have figured out that I find the design of this bottle somewhat ridicolous, looking more like something Will Smith faces in more than one third of his movies, than in fact a perfume bottle! Starting off with critisism, why not continue with that... I found this perfume to be way too sweet and trying too much, it failed to deliver a fresh and feminine scent to my skin, and after a while, it just felt sticky and sweet! As if that`s not bad enough, the staying power of this perfume is absolutely dreadful, as I had to spray at least four times during the day in order to make it last... Then again, I didn`t really want it to last, and I`m certain never to buy this perfume again, simply because I found the smell of it to be sickening and sweet, not to mention the bottle looking absolutely idiotic! Sadly, this Nina Ricci fragrance doesn`t come with anything positive to mention, and all though costing little, I wouldn`t recommend this perfume to my arch enemy, it`s a dreadful perfume in every way! Sorry to say, but this extremely sweet and fake scent doesn`t come near being worth the money, so all I recommend is for you to stay the heck away from this perfume and let Will Smith deal with it...
Nina Ricci: Les belles is fruity, fruity. The packaging is ultra unique and stylish, the box is a rectangular shape and lime green with a pink/purple smoke design, and the bottle is in the shape of a winding smoke puff made from frosted lime green glass, and is topped of with a spikey pink/purple cap. The fragrance contains the following top notes: bergamot, citrus and peach, heart notes include: lemon, honey and orange blossom and base notes include: vetiver, oak moss and sandalwood. When sprayed you immediately get that fruity feel, but its not overpowering its really fresh, sweet and light, also a couple of sprays last all day and the actual perfume isn't wet and sticky when it hits the skin. I would recommend this fragrance for daytime use but i believe it would also work for a fun girly night out, it can be bought at most large retail stores including debenhams, boots and the perfume shop and online at amazon, eBay and perfume emporium. Prices range from around £10-15 for a 50ml bottle, which is great value. On a whole i would describe this scent has an energetic fruity burst.
Nina Ricci has bought out some lovely fragrances since this one, but I still find myself going back.
The lime green bubbly smoked glass bottle is a real statement and this only increases due to the fact that the bottle is capped with a hot pink lid. I got a free mini with one purchase of this and is was also in a mimic bottle, just smaller. This bottle is pretty tough too. The urves make it very easy to grip
It is a sweet fragrance. Almost like a fruit juice or syrup. It has definitely got some apple in it, but probably has a myriad of other fruit and flowers too. Its a very mellow efferversant scent and people are likely to notice and compliment it.
There are several other variations of this perfume, but I definitely prefer this one. You need a couple of sprays throughout a day for it to remain as powerful.
I got given a bottle of this as a present. I love Nina Ricci perfume usually (my signature fragrance is 'Nina') however I wasn't overall thrilled by this smell. I found it a bit too sweet for my liking if that makes any sense. It is of course personal taste and I wore it a few times and recieved some compliments on it. The bottle is a fantastic design and looks great on any shelf. The lid as well is both functional and pretty. The perfume could be worn during the day or at night time. It is quite a subtle fragrance I found. The best feature about the perfume is the bottle I found, I like the bold colours and the design. Nina Ricci makes fantastic perfumes but to me this is one of their weaker scents. I did however pass it onto a friend who loved it, so perhaps it is just my sense of smell and personal taste?
I first bought this fragrance a couple of years ago after hearing many good things about it. After smelling it myself I agreed with everyone and absolutely loved it. Some perfumes can be classed as either a day or night perfume, not this one. You could wear this at any time of the day as it is not too heavy but not so light either. It has a fruity zing and a sweetness to it which gives that little bit of extra appeal against other fragrances. It also has plenty of life and freshness which makes this a fragrance which will remain timeless. Certain fruity fragrances can be too overpowering for me but Nina Ricci seems to have hit the nail on the head with this one and I think it is perfect. As always, not all fragrances suit everyones tastes so I would try it before you buy but I don't think that many people wouldn't like this one.
This perfume comes in the most gorgeous, elegant yet understated subtly cat-like lime green bottle - (phew!). I love how it looks on my shelf, and the little red crown ads the final touch. I'm terrible at describing smells, all I can say is that it's definitely quite fruity, I'd say apple-like, and that everyone I know who's ever smelt it absolutely loves it. I was glad to see that the other two reviewers seem to agree with me! The only problem that is stopping this product from being extremely popular is the fact that it's not very well heard of - which probably means they have, thankfully, not overindulged in advertising, but are trying to sell their great product for what it is.
Yummy, this is simply mouthwatering... I'd never heard of this perfume before, but chanced upon a bottle lurking in the bodysprays and lavender waters at my local Boots. The bottle grabbed my attention first, all limey green metallic and shiny pink. I spritzed a little on my wrists and was transported to a woodland in summer, eating juciy berries and summerfruit pudding...heavenly! This is a delightful summer perfume - fresh, zingy and not overpowering, but with good staying power that fades to a lovely subtle blackberry/lime scent. There are also two other fragrances available in this range, simply called 1 & 2. I didn't try 2, but 1 (blue bottle) is all almondy and vanillaish. Very nice, but once I'd tried the original, there was no going back!
This truly is the best perfume ever invented. Firstly the bottle is fantastic, the limes green bottle with the purple top just stands out from all the other perfumes bottles. The bottle isn’t just straight but twisted up to a point. And as for the smell well trust me is it gorgeous. Its really I suppose aimed and is best for teenagers, but I can’t imagine how anyone couldn’t like it. The smell is sort of exotic and refreshing and your get all the boys lined up at the smell of it…trust me!! On how life is.
