Tagged as Nina Ricci Capricci Review, Perfumes for imaginary princesses
I’ve never smelled Capricci but I want to. I only know L’Air du Temps and Farouche.
No no no no no no NO!!!!!!!!
That means you have only ever experienced the gauzy, musky side of Nina Ricci, not the ‘pure’ floral beauty, more akin to Caleche and the like but even more classicist. Capricci is perfect if you like that side of perfume, although it can definitely come across as rather ‘prim and proper’. I personally think it transcends all that though, becoming something deeply romantic in the most painful and beautiful way.
I was looking for pictures of Grace Kelly that captured her beauty but also the feeling of being trapped.
As I was reading I thought to myself that this bride didn’t look very happy. Are these pictures of her actual wedding or from a movie?
The photos are outstanding and I remember Capricci well and owned it at one time.
Do my mediocre words capture any of its essence?
Very nicely written piece. I absolutely adore Capricci, it is one of my favorite scents. I truly adore all the fragrances by Nina Ricci, but this, along with Fille d’Eve, are my two favorites. It tends to wear a bit spicy on me and less floraly, but that is just my chemistry. I have this in edt and extrait and both are divine. Would love to find more extrait, maybe I will be lucky one of these days.
I am sad the piece disappeared, but delighted you know it and love it. VERY beautiful, I think, and utterly beautiful (and the diametric opposite of Fille D’Eve, no?)
Such the complete opposite of Fille d’Eve, but they both share that elegance that only Nina Ricci scents have.
Totally agree. They were timeless (such a sad thing to write).
Oh no! I noticed you’d posted it and was going to read now but alas. So Capricci, good and one should try it?
An extremely pretty, classicist, green floral aldehyde, like the picture. It depends on whether that appeals to you! I personally think it is very beautiful indeed. Joyous, but with a melancholy undertone.
