Nina Ricci 'Luna' Perfume - Review

Hello lovelies! 
When it comes to fragrances I wear on a daily basis I generally stick brands I know and love. On Friday however my Aunty, who works at House Of Fraser, brought me Nina Ricci's latest perfume Luna - Les Belles de Nina which isn't yet available in her store so I decided to review it on my blog today.  
Before I had even smelt the perfume I fall completely in love with the bottle itself. If you don't know the background to Luna, she is the best friend of Nina (another fragrance in the Belles de Nina range). Luna is illustrated as a 'temptress, captivating, daring and in quest of mystery'; together with Nina she embarks on her adventure, they're claimed to be 'inseparable, made for each other their differences add up perfectly'

Luna is homed in a beautiful blue apple shaped bottle, which is said to be a colour that reveals her mysterious side. Around the neck of the bottle is a black leather tie which leads up to two petite yet firm leaves which represents the core of the apple. The blue tinture of the bottle reflects stunningly with the gold stem, making Luna one of the most photogenic perfumes I've photographed. The box that Luna is wrapped in is stark white with a blue apple printed on. 

As I instantly became obsessed with the packaging of this fragrance, I was a little apprehensive if the actual scent would live up to the look. All my doubts vanished as I pinched the spritzer for the first time, I was hit by a gorgeous smelling aroma instantly. I would say Luna is strong yet sweet smelling, with notes that include orange blossom and wild berries, caramel, vanilla and sandalwood. It's a mysterious scent that's unique and difficult to put your finger on the correct term to describe exactly. 
Since receiving the perfume on Friday I've worn it each day to get the full effect of it. It gives me a femine feeling, as though I could be in my pj's on a Sunday and this fragrance would still assure I had some femininity and sassiness to me. To me a perfume is more for the person wearing it, it's about self belief and confidence and Luna does exactly that for me! 

Even though Nina Ricci targeted this scent at 18-25 year olds I asked my Mum what she thought of the smell and if she'd wear it herself, she said she thought it was a refreshing smell and she'd wear it too. Personally when I wore it I thought it was suitable for any age, however it made me have a sense of classiness too, which is why I think it would appeal to many women. Some perfumes I've tried in the past haven't had a classy feel about them so they wouldn't appeal to a wider audience. 

Not only is it the age range that could be a variety but also the time of day and occasion too. If I was to wear this for daytime I'd take it with me and have a respray throughout the day; with a single spray Luna lasted just over two hours however if I'd of liked it a little more noticeable and popped some more on it would have preserved on my skin longer. I've got a feeling that this will be my go-to perfume of the Spring/Summer months this year as it seems like a fresh, cooling smell and I'm so in love with it!

Luna has made the perfect impression on me as the first Ricci fragrance to try and I'd love to meet her best friend, Nina, too! I'd definitely recommend this to any femme fatale who's looking for a new perfume!

  1. I personally don't wear perfumes but I do admire them on other people and I've always loved the smell of one of the older scents from Nina that my sister used to wear. Would love to smell this one!

  7. This sounds lush! I am a slave to my Chanel Coco Mademoiselle but I may give this a try. Especially as the bottle is so pretty.
