The juice inside is a fresh, fruity, floral – pretty much the standard for Nina Ricci Eau de Toilettes.
The top notes are bergamot and grapefruit, while the heart is a more gourmand blend of almonds, raspberries, lemon, and Bulgarian rose, and macaron. Think of this as a lemon-almond sugar cookie. The base of vanilla, white musk, and sandalwood do nothing to ground the fragrance, and it ends up staying mostly gourmand – mostly thanks to the vanilla.
Still, the light and fresh opening, combined with the hint of almonds make this a fragrance that’s not too sweet to the nose, and still entirely wearable.
