So part of me should be very disappointed that I gave in and bought this. I said in my last perfume purchase (which got used up in about 3 months) that I would treat myself with a new perfume for each song I wrote and recorded for Fenix. Well…the album is completely written now but not recorded, so yes, I cheated.
I figured that I don’t want/need more than 3 perfumes (famous last words) and since I’d written the songs it was technically ok
And there was 25% off…so that pushed me over the edge haha! I bought three perfumes; this, Richi Richi and Nina-L’Elixir. As I’m sure you can tell by now I’m a huge fan of the Nina Richi perfumes, they’re cruelty-free and tend to be the kind of smells I love.
This one is a bit of an unusual sent for me since I normally go for sweet floral smells. And it has two scents that I normally avoid, rose and musk, but for some reason this perfume just works for me. It’s a slightly more ‘mature smell’ than tend to go for but I love it!
Top notes: bergamot, star anise and rose | Middle Notes: white peony, velvety apricot, sheer jasmine | Base notes: sandalwood, cedar wood, musk and vanilla
It’s quite funny that since I’ve moved from The Body Shop perfumes I’ve realised what a difference a good perfume makes. The smell of these (the Nina Ricci perfumes) last all day without a problem and I can even smell it on my coat a few days later. I’d describe this as a musky spring smell.
