Pick up the rollerball to keep in your purse.

Birchbox Breakdown

It’s rare for us to find a fragrance that we love wearing year-round. It needs to be a versatile scent that’s complex enough for the fall and bright enough for the summer, but isn’t overbearing. Which is why we’re such fans of Nicole by Nicole Richie, the debut scent from the reality star-turned-perfumer. Inspired by Richie’s memory of her mother’s favorite beauty ritual—creating unique fragrances by layering bath oils, lotions and perfume—the scent is both warm and bold, with hints of smooth vanilla rounded out by the brightness of blackberry and Moroccan rose. Plus, the chic and compact art deco-inspired bottle makes the perfect addition to any purse.

How it Works

A fruity blackberry top note is refined with notes of amber, Moroccan rose, lily of the valley, and papyrus in the middle. Seductive vanilla, patchouli and sandalwood round out the fragrance.

How to Use

Glide on pulse points in the morning will last throughout the day, Re-apply before dinner or cocktails for a tiny scent boost that will last all evening.

Did Not Expect to Like it

I did not expect to like this fragrance as much as I did. It was light enough to wear during the day but also had the great vanilla scents that make it great for the night as well.

Nicole by nicole richie

This perfume smells very pretty and is not strong at all. Smells refreshing and clean. Comes in a very pretty bottle as well.

Love the smell
Purchased

I love the smell of this perfume. It's not too heavy and I get many compliments. I might need to change perfumes for the summer, because I feel like it is a winter/fall scent.

Loved it!

I hardly ever buy fragrances attached to a celebrity, but I loved my sample of this one! Nicole has figured out how to make a scent that isn't too abrasive or sweet. This has a nice feminine cologne quality - very clean.

Love it!

This is my favorite scent I've gotten so far this year, and it's perfect for fall. Crisp, clean, sweet-- I can't wait to get the large size once my sample runs out!

Not a Favorite

I wan't completely in love with this scent. It gave me kind of a headache as some of the smells were a little overpowering. I would wear it again, but I wouldn't buy the full size

Obsessed
Purchased

I am absolutely obsessed with this perfume. I am extremely picky about what perfume I wear, but this is perfect. I got the sample from my friend who had received it in her box one month, and as soon as I used it once I was hooked. It's a subtle smell, not overpowering, and perfect for any occasion. I use it everyday!

Love!

Love it! Was actually shocked when I tried it on. Very soft and not over powering but still makes people ask what you're wearing. Def worth purchasing!

Pleasantly surprised

I received this a few months ago but only recently started using it. I was surprised at how much I liked this perfume. Celebrity scents are hit or miss but this smells great. I'm so glad I got to try it because I would have passed this up at the department store
