I was fascinated with Nina by Nina Ricci the moment I saw it. The 1.0 oz. spray bottle is shaped like a red apple with three silvery leaves. This smooth glass apple looked so beautiful that I immediately wanted to take it into my hands. Holding it felt very nice; I expected the fragrance to be that of apple, but when I opened the lid and sprayed some of the perfume on my wrist I was surprised to smell something totaly different. In fact, there was no hint of apple, which at that point I took as somewhat disappointing. The scent was very unique, fresh, somewhat floral, in between of sweet and tart. As I wore the perfume throughout the day, I grew to enjoy it. I suppose my initial disappointment was caused by my expectations of apple created by the bottle's shape.
Overall, I like Nina. I would say it is good for both younger and older women. While it is a little too pricy for me to consider purchasing, I would not mind receiving this beautiful red apple as a gift.
