This Fragrance Friday, I finally have an affordable perfume to share with you, and it’s one of my favorite fragrances to wear during the spring: Nanette Lepore for Women. This perfume is the signature fragrance from the whimsical and feminine design house, Nanette Lepore.
Nanette Lepore for Women is packaged in a girlish pink, Bohemian-style bottle decorated with flowers, and adorned with a black and white polka dot bow (I misplaced mine). It’s simple, yet cute. The 30ml bottle that I own fits nicely within my purse, and is compact enough for travel.
Nanette Lepore for Women, can be described as feminine, fun and flirty. This floral and fruity fragrance has the following notes:
Top: Rose, White peach and White cranberry
Middle: Black currant, Orange, Jasmine and Persian lime
Base: Signature violet leaf
For me, the rose notes in Nanette Lepore for Women are evident for the first 10-15 minutes, and then the peach mixed with cranberry come tagging along. I love the black currant mixed with the jasmine, which seems to hang around a bit longer., and the Persian lime just makes everything smell even better. It cuts the floral and berries so that it isn’t too sweet, but just right. The sillage is awesome; you can’t smell me from a mile away, which is good, but, should i pas you, you’ll get a light whiff. It’s the perfect spring daytime fragrance.
My only issue with Nanette Lepore for Women is that it doesn’t last long. I’d say I get about 4 hours wear on a good day. On a hot day, 1-3 hours. But, for a discount fragrance, I think that this is a pretty decent wear time.
Nanette Lepore for Women, in my opinion is a feminine fragrance suitable for those women in the 20 – 30 year old range. It’s fun and cheerful, with a bit of innocence. I would recommend it for those over 30 years old who are young at heart. Nanette Lepore is one of those fragrances that has built in nostalgia, so spray some on , and take a walk down memory lane to the days when you were out having fun with your girls, or necking with your new main squeeze.
Nanette Lepore for Women can be purchased from Neiman Marcus for $30/1.7 fl oz.
