Nina Ricci Mademoiselle Ricci Perfume 2012

The latest perfume in the Nine Ricci range to be released in August 2012 (in France) is Mademoiselle Ricci and has been released as a tribute to the fashion range in the 1960's of the same name.
It's a floral scent and is aimed at women aged 25 to 35, it's feminine which is evident from the free use of pale pinks in the poster and on the bottle.

I am fond of the fragrances to date from this fashion house and will be interested to sample this one as the original perfume of the same name (which has since been discontinued) was available in the late 1960's.

I doubt that the perfume itself resembles the original and was slightly surprised to find that the names were the same. Where the original was a floral fragrance with notes of rose, honeysuckle, sandalwood and bergamot to name a few, this newer perfume created by Alberto Morillas is more woody and contains notes of wild roses, musk, pink pepper and white wood.

No release date has been set as of yet  for the US but after the initial release in France it is due to be available to the rest of Europe in September. I guess I will have to wait until then.
