What was the Parisian in the early thirties of the twentieth century? Emancipated and eccentric, shocking and uninhibited. The designer of women’s clothing Nina Ricci has put on a completely opposite image. She began to sew dresses in which charming femininity combined with grace and modern convenience. And this is appreciated by her clients. Founded in 1932 in Paris, the fashion house of Nina Ricci received worldwide fame in 1945. Refined and elegant clothes were valued by women both in the Old World and on the other side of the ocean. But the first perfume from Nina Ricci L’Air du Temps (“The Atmosphere of Time”) was not produced by the founder of the fashion house, but by her son Robert. Then other flavors arose that shook the world of perfumery, such as Love in Paris (Love in Paris), Premier Jour (First Day) and Ricci Ricci. But this article is devoted not to these spirits and especially not to clothes. Our focus is on Nina Richie perfume (Red Apple).
Why two names
This perfume was created to perpetuate the memory of the founder of the fashion house. The official name of the perfume is Nina from Nina Ricci. But the recognizable bottle in the form of a filling paradise fruit with three silver leaves gave rise to another name among the people – “Red Apple”. "Nina Richie" is a brand that uses excellent marketing moves. After releasing the perfume in the form of a red filling apple, the brand’s creators seemed to throw the message of the target audience: “For the sake of these perfumes, Eve would have left paradise.” And yet (for connoisseurs of ancient Greek myths): "This perfume gives Paris only the most beautiful goddess in the world, Aphrodite." The product does not need further advertising, does it? By the way, the aroma of apple is present in the perfume, but is not dominant. As the reviews say, the “main violin” is played by citrus fruits with a floral, exciting smell. Perhaps that is why for many women this fragrance is associated with the New Year.
The history of the perfume Nina from Nina Ricci
The smell was born back in 1987. A special advertising campaign was not carried out then, but the quality product was caught by the buyer and without promotion. Perfume "Nina Richie" ("Red Apple") unexpectedly for the manufacturers themselves have become top. Therefore, in 2006, an updated version of the classic fragrance with the same name was created. His "parents" became masters of their craft, famous perfumers Olivier Polzh and Jacques Cavalier. This time was an advertising campaign. But not her success owes perfume. The public has long been eager for the emergence of something like this – wondrous, fantastic aroma of love. This is a real mystical elixir with a sweetish taste, which instantly takes you to the world of happy dreams. The creators of the product caught the edge when the fragrance separates its owner from the crowd, but is not imposed on others. And, according to reviews, on each woman perfume "sits" in its own way, emphasizing the individual character traits.
In 2006, thanks to advertising in glossy magazines and on television, everyone learned about Nina perfume. What promise did the movie give? Lush-haired girl in a beautiful dress, making her look like a princess from a fairy tale, stubbornly climbs the tree for the coveted apple. This fruit in all people is associated with temptation, to which it is impossible to resist. You can interpret an excerpt from the Book of Genesis in a different way. Eve and the apple turned out to be more desirable for Adam than all the pleasures of paradise. In short, the advertisement worked, the more so because the scent fully matched it. Everyone fell in love with Red Apple, Nina Richie again became a popular brand. After all, every woman dreams of becoming the Eve, for which the beloved man will do anything. Despite the risk of falling and being expelled from paradise. Yes, and the aroma, say reviews, fall in love with himself. He bears the owner of a positive, charges her with a special, mystical energy.
Red and other apples

The latest flanker is the new product of 2014 – “La Tentayshen de Nina” (raspberry flavor in the appropriate bottle). But there are also limited editions! For example, “Nina Prishez Swarovski Edition”, “Nina Princes d’un Zhu” in a red shimmering bottle and the novelties of this year “Nina Edition d’Or” and “Le Delicious de Nina”. By the way, all flankers were created by perfumer Oliver Cresp.
Who is the fragrance for?
But no subsequent variation has received that glory, which was awarded the very first – red – "Yabloko". “Nina Richie” could not surpass her creation even in limited editions for spoiled clients. Indeed, in the perfumes are not important Swarovski crystals, and fragrance. What is the secret of the success of the classic "Nina"? Spirits were focused on young girls who are not afraid to dream and put their dreams into reality. They give women confidence, make them reach their potential and dare. Therefore, the perfume has gone beyond its target audience. As they say reviews, perfume is suitable not only for young girls. Mature ladies from also coming. The main thing is to be in a good mood. Then this spark of youth, the charm of Aphrodite and the seductiveness of Eve will come by themselves.

But at a fake visible sprinkler spring, which is unacceptable in the original. In these perfumes, all the small details of the design are made with high quality. The cap sits tightly. The leaves also do not hang out. On the middle of them is visible the inscription "Nina Ricci". And, finally, the price and place of purchase. Well, you can not buy quality perfumes for the price of deodorant. The average price for toilet water is three thousand rubles for 80 milliliters, 2500 – for 50 ml and 1700 for 30 ml.
