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.
Smells wayyyyyy too much like old lady perfume! Gross. Gave the sample to my mom, and she liked it but my dad didn't. I won't be wearing it.1
I had high hopes for this scent but I didn't really love it. The packaging is very appealing though.2
I'm extremely picky about scents, and the one thing I hate more than anything is something that smells distinctly like vanilla. To me this is that. It's not summery in the slightest. Smells very strongly of vanilla. It smells cheap and like a body spray you would use when you were 13. Pass.2
In my December Women's Birchbox I received a sample size of this perfume. I'm not the pickiest perfume person and I found this to be too floral for my tastes, it was overwhelming but the scent didn't even seem to stay long. I wouldn't buy the full bottle, sorry Nicole!2
I'm not usually a fan of perfume at all. This one is ok, but pretty strong. I don't think it's my taste. I like more fruity smells, and this was more floral than I'd like.3
It isn't bad. This scent is definitely floral in an overpowering sweet way. It reminds me of a teenager or kid's perfume. That's all based on what you like though, and everyone perceives scent differently.
The perfume is very light once applied and doesn't last long.
This scent is not offensive or cheap, but it's not exceptional either. I am keeping mine in my purse for quick touch ups, but I wouldn't purchase it.3
I could not have imagined I'd ever own a celebrity fragrance, let alone from Nicole Richie! However this aroma was perfect- spicy and warm without too much of that heavy amber note. I wish there were a size between the roller ball and the huge bottle, but oh well.4
I liked this perfume. The scent was very nice, but a little strong. All you need is a light spritz.4
Great for travel, easy to use and the smell is so sensual. This also made a great gift and I bought more just to have in my purse. It travels well in the purse and you can always pull it out and refresh your scent.4
