Les Delicés de Nina is the new fragrance by Nina Ricci. It is inspired candy lands and faery tales like Alice in Wonderland and Hansel and Gretel. This new fragrance was created by Marie Salamagne and Olivier Cresp, they wanted it to smell like fizzy strawberry sweets, lemon drops and tangerines. With heart notes of Gardenia, to inject some femininity into the perfume. The base notes are Musk, Praline and Caramel to keep it sweet, warm and delightful!
For this new edition, Nina Ricci partnered with the confectioners, Papabubble, who are renowned for both the quality and the inventiveness of its candy creations, all made by hand. For Les Delicés de Nina, Papabubble came up with a limited edition of Nina candies whose fizzy strawberry flavour was directly inspired by the fragrance. They are colourful, light, joyful, tangy and delicious: in short, everything that is Nina. I tasted them and they are delicious!
This bottle is too cute; It is fluro-pink and apple shaped, with the delicate gold detailing. It is an exact representation of the perfume; Candy-sweet, super-fun, with a touch of class. A girl who collects perfume bottle will love this bottle and there are bonus points because it is limited edition, so it won’t be around forever!
This perfume is a teenage girls dream which a mother would approve of; it’s warm, sweet and delicious without being sickly. It is a great mix between fizzy strawberry sweets, tangy tangerine and warm sugary caramel. The soft musk and floral gardenia give the perfume an extra dimension and stop it from just smelling like a precioucious candy store. It is sweet and candy like, yet, feminine and pretty. It’s really nicely balanced so that it is young, but not sexy or obnoxious. If I was younger, I would adore this perfume and the bottle would be pride of place in my bedroom. If I had a daughter, I would buy this for her as I know she would adore it and it is sweet without being sickly! Pop into your local stockist to give this perfume a go, it’s not every day you find a strawberry scented perfume in a pink apple shaped bottle!
Les Delicés de Nina by Nina Ricci is out in March and costs £41. It is limited edition, so if you want it, snap it up fast!
