Nina Ricci Le Paradis de Nina Review

Although poisonous, Snow White was pretty much attracted to sinking her teeth into that crunchy, red apple that her wicked stepmother presented to her.  Who could blame her, girlfriend was hungry after walking around that forest all day!

Ahh apples. There’s just something terribly enchanting about a bright, shiny, apple. Speaking of enchanting apples…..Nina Ricci always charms my money right out of my pocket with her whimsical little apple shaped fragrances.

So kawaii!

Anyone sniff Nina Ricci Le Paradis de Nina the newest fragrance in the line?


Ahhh sweet innocence in a frosted pink glass apple! Packaging wise you won’t be shy to prop this little lady on your vanity. The fragrance is housed in Nina Ricci’s signature glass apple design with frosted glass and pale pink perfume inside making the bottle look like a little blushing sweet apple!

The packaging mimics the scent with a whimsical flirty innocence that should appeal to those who adore softer fruity, floral blends.

First spritz will leave you with a sparkling citrus bouquet with burst of orange, mandarin, orange blossom and faint hints of almond. The heart of the fragrance dries down to a tiny hint of apple with flowery notes of gardenia and a musky vanilla which brings the fragrance into a more softer, mellow area.

The scent has a sweetly sensual edge that should suit younger women as well as older ones who enjoy a more sweet, softer floral. I thought it was an ideal scent for day time use as it has a certain whimsy that’s ideal for a date in the park.

I liked it alot, it’s one of Nina’s more softer, sweet blends that I’ve tried and appeals to my girlish good nature in a major way. Those on the hunt for a barely there, sweet yet floral blend will find Nini Ricci Le Paradis de Nina a perfect pick!

Has anyone tried it?

Loves it?

Any favorite Nini Ricci scents?

Available now from Macy’s.

    This fragrance sounds nice. I can’t think of Nina Ricci fragrances anymore without remembering their wonderful advertisement with the departed model, Ruslana Korshunova, entering a room and climbing on a mound of apples to get to a bottle of Nina Ricci on the tree. She was lovely.
