Bella – the Italian word for beauty, a graceful being. Bella is 1 of the 3 new fragrances by Nina Ricci. These fragrances are inspired by female power & the female heroine. The bottle of Bella is absolutely enchanting, an apple with a little ladybird nestled at the top of the gold leaves, a homage to Snow White.
On the first whiff, the first note to hit your senses is definitely rhubarb, then there’s a lingering of orange and that underlying vanilla aroma. When I smell this scent, my vibe and mood becomes an intriguing one but ultimately romantic, my imagination runs away to sandy beaches next to green cliffs and I dream of long sunny days out in the countryside. This scent for me is all about the summer Mediterranean mood. It is definitely a worth fragrance for this time of the year, powerful but sweet, spicy but not too intoxicating.
