Nicole Richie has come into her own and she’s an absolute style icon as far as I’m concerned. She’s no longer Paris Hilton’s little sidekick and has turned over such a new leaf of maturity.
With her own line of couture under her belt as well as a successful jewelry collection it was only a matter of time that she joined the celebrity fragrance ranks. This Fall, Nicole Richie released her own fragrance entitled, simply, Nicole.
Housed in a gorgeous cut crystal glass bottle with a certain boho chicness that only Nicole could pull off this fragrance is a warm, creamy blend of ambers with fruit and floral notes.
Let’s take a look!
Nicole is the the type of fragrance that grows on you on the dry down. At first spritz you get a heavy gold amber note with hints of creaminess. I’m not particularly keen on amber but it’s the actual dry down that will capture your fancy if you too don’t enjoy the note.
On the dry down succulent notes of blackberry and orange come out to play intertwined with delightfully soft floral notes like lily of the valley and rose. Comforting warmth and richness is added to the scent with a sensual blend of cashmere, sandalwood, and a touch of vanilla and patchouli. Don’t worry, the patchouli isn’t what you expect. It adds just the right touch of warmth to the fruit and floral notes and adds an extra bit of sensuality and sexiness to the overall fragrance.
Unlike most celebrity fragrances, I can actually picture Nicole Richie wearing a scent like this. It’s very sexy yet subtle. Not girly in the least or sweet but a very womanly scent that’s sophisticated, mature, and wholly beautiful. This is my new “grown up” scent!
