La Tentation De Nina Fragrance Review


Note to Readers: YES this is a FULL review of the perfume rather than an event coverage. Read on read on. I didn’t receive any complimentary perfume bottles or what-nots because I wasn’t able to really attend the full event. I am writing this review because I really love perfumes!

Last July 22nd, I was invited to numerous events that I tried my best to manage my time. First one up was the very intimate press launch of La Tentation De NinaΒ held at Poetry and Prose Patisserie at Shangri-La Plaza. As much as I would love to cover the event, I wasn’t able to attend fully and just drop by because of time constraints. However, I had the opportunity to spray on the latest fragrance from Nina Ricci and being the frustrated pinay perfumista that I was, tried to put my olfactory senses on full force despite my colds & allergies to review this scent for you!



It’s better to smell the perfume ON YOUR SKIN than on paper. I just did not have the photo of me smelling my wrists haha

La Tentation De Nina Perfume Notes

Base – White Musk, Vanilla, and Sandal Wood
Middle – Macarons, Lemon, Almonds, Rose, Raspberry
Top – Bergamot
Main notes according to my nose – Sandal Wood, Vanilla, Raspberry, Macarons
La Tentation de Nina, Nina L’Elixir, Nina, Nina L’eau

Staying Power

An average of 6 hours and I can still smell it on my wrists

Sillage (How it emanates from your body)

It has a soft sillage that only those who are near you can smell. It’s a very sexy, sweet, and intimate fragrance


KikaysiKat Tip: Staying power and Sillage (pronounced as See-arge) are different. Sillage is how people smell it from you. You know, when a lady walk past you and it’s either you wrinkle your nose from foul smell or close your eyes because she smells like an angel


I’ve always been a Nina Fan ever since their first perfume came out which was the original Nina perfume that I received as a gift. My boyfriend loves the scent on me, he tells me I smell like a princess whenever I wear it.
My broken Nina bottle. Lost cap. Almost empty. Sad really πŸ™
Being a Nina perfume fan, discovering that they made an edgier fragrance for us is a delight. The neon pink bottle is very eye-catching giving the notion that this Nina is the aggressive type BUT the fragrance still says otherwise. The scent still smells soft and princessy to me, none of the edge. They were probably looking for that via the lemon and rose notes but it still gets overpowered by the sweetness of Macarons.
If you are a fan of powdery and sweet scents this is a must for you! The bottle would be a nice addition to your growing collection.

    Ms. Kat, you forgot to watermark some of the photos again. Hopefully no one would plagiarize this. Nice review as always!!

    Ms. Kat, does it stain clothes? Some perfumes leave a yellowish-brown stain that is unsightly for white or light-colored clothing. Thank You! πŸ˜€

    Oo nga e! Nakakalimutan ko! There's always next time!

    Nope it doesn't! πŸ™‚ I suggest not putting perfume on your clothes. Sa skin lang!

    What does the top, middle and bottom notes mean Ms. Kath?

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva July 25, 2014 at 8:30 am

    Hi Ms. Kath! I'm using the Pond's White Beauty for Acne-prone Cream. I love the powder-finish that it gives, kaso parang din naman nag-improve yung skin ko. Did you write a review about it? I'd love to read what you think about it. πŸ™‚

    Wow your sense of smell is interesting though I gained a super power of hypersmell when I became a mommy, I need to use this to discover more perfumes. lolz. To add, I really don't blog about my perfumes because i like it to be secret. haha.

    Speaking of watermarks, I am lazy!!! But I put copyrights on my photos using Photoshop. You cannot see it pero nasa loob sya mismo ng photos.

    the top, middle and bottom are layers. yung top mabilis mawala, as in light kaya mabilis mag evaporate. Usually first impression lies on the top layer. middle smell is mostly therapeutic then the bottom layer yan ung habang tumatagal bumabango. xx

    The bottle sure looks posh. Your sense of smell is amazing. I can define smell like you do, you are so detailed galing πŸ™‚

    Sometimes our sense of smell can be a curse, imagine if something foul come across our noses like garbage or poop. HAHA!

    You must really like this brand to have made a full review. I agree with what everyone is saying here, the bottles are indeed very posh looking. πŸ™‚
