Nanette Lepore introduces a new fragrance that will be available from September 2009. Nanette is made in the cooperation with Anne Flipo from IFF with emphasized amber in the composition.

Nanette brings pink pepper, rose petals and neroli at the top, followed by rose absolute, violet and lily-of-the-valley at the heart. Base notes combine amber with incense and hot cedar wood. A touch of the violet in the composition is dedicated to the name of her 11 year-old daughter.

The collection includes three bottles: 7,5ml (0.25oz) roller ball edp; 30 (1.0oz) and 75ml (2.5oz) edp, along with 100ml (3.4oz) lotion.

The bottle of Nanette perfume is made out of heavy crystal, very elegant, created before the composition itself was blended. Its form represents the romance of Italy, and reminds of a vintage bottle seen in an antiquate shop in Florence.

The commercial campaign is done by Poppy de Villeneuve, the daughter of the famous fashion photographer Justin de Villeneuve. The photographs will be available from November in the majority of the main fashion magazines.

Nanette Fragrance Reviews

The amber in Nanette Lepore has a similar chocolatey quality to that in La Perla's J'aime La Nuit. It's sweet and rich with a soft touch of violet. I personally do not smell rose or even really pick up on the woody notes that much.
It's a very nice fragrance and shockingly inexpensive. I don't know if I will keep it very long. It's a fairly standard sweet amber and amber just doesn't get me terribly excited.

I love this one because I find it to be the love child of several perfumes that I have worn, and loved, in the past, and it was blessed with the very best "genes" of all of its "parents"... the original Fendi is the Daddy, maybe, with all the stately, smoky majestic feel... but, baby Nanette lackes the "inhaling the inside of an expensive leather bag" feeling of her "Daddy"(and, for me, that is a good thing). Nanette's "Mommy", to me, is Prada Amber, all exotic elegance and poised sensuality, a truly beautiful lady... but, who is this, peeking in? And, what is her role here? It must be... it IS, Guess original, that deep, dark, ambery, SEXY bad girl, perhaps she is the bad-influence older sister that Nanette's parents stick her with while they are busy trotting the globe? Anyhow, big-bad-sister original Guess knocks down the snob appeal just a bit, only enough to make Nanette more bohemian than haute couture. The leather in Fendi, and the general kind of "too fashion-y" feel of both Prada and Fendimake them less wearable, for me, as I am no clotheshorse. I do love beautiful things, and am frequently complimented on my sense of style, but it is a casual one, so more "relaxed" fragrances suit me better. This one boasts *most* of the notes that typically lure me in... the warm, the spicy, the sweet, the smoky... it really is divine. But, it is its wearable, approachable similarity to its "parents" that makes it truly special to me.

If I say so myself, I smell wonderful when I wear this. I don't get incense in this, mostly I get a smooth musk, which isn't even listed in the notes. I got many compliments with this, but each person smelled something different. One said she smelled rose, another the lily-of-the-valley, and still another smelled the neroli. It's like a chameleon the way the scent changed.

I'm crazy! Just blind bought two rollerballs of this stuff. Can't wait to receive it :) Hope to be satisfied with it. I'll come back with review later on.

EDIT: So I received Nanette today and I instantly put it on my wrists. I was surprised how much I liked it even from the first sniff ('cause some of the reviews below lowered my expectations). It's sweet but in a spicy way. I was thrilled to find out that it matches well with my skin chemistry and this stuff is unlike anything else I own. I like the way it is woody and smoky (from incence), but yet sweet, spicy and very feminine. Absolutely balsamic (but not like tiger balm - in a good way). Like warm, comforting myrrh (even though not listed in the notes). Intriguing. I can't wait to put it on tomorrow and see how it wears on me for a whole day. It's definately work appropriate, but I can also imagine it would be good for a classy night out. I like it so far! This was a blind purchase gone well! A big thanks to VeenVegas and isabella211 for triggering my curiosity for this scent!

Spicy woods dominate this scent giving it a sexy vibe. Pepper is very noticeable throughout. Dries down to a creamy amber spiked with patchouli. I adore amber and it is very well done here. Similar in feel to Midnight Poison by Dior, but Nanette has less patch and more incense. It's not too sweet, which makes it more sophisticated than most mainstream perfumes. Sillage and lasting power are very good. Bottle is absolutely stunning.

Warm, sweet, a little spicy. Elegant without being too formal, versatile. You could wear it any time, any where and it would always be appropriate. It's not a very loud scent for the strength of the notes, it blends in with the skin very well.

Received this in a swap from a great fragrantican!! WOW I LOVE this scent so much! It was actually a blind swap as well, as I went mostly by the notes and reviews. I really think its one of my new favourite scents!!! It's warm, woody and a tad sweet on my skin, very cozy & inviting!! I just love it! Very happy with this gem! Not to mention the very pretty bottle! :-)

Love the sweet and spicy pepper opening. Mid way through this perfume transforms into something woody, very similar to Silk Way by Ted Lapidus, maybe its the cedar (looooovvve cedar). The drydown is very soft vanilla/amber/incense. The bottle is so lovely. My only dissapointment is that I did not find it at all similar to Le Baiser Du Dragon( which I think smells wonderful). Overall, I consider this a great blind buy.

This is very pretty! Its very strong too so I'm glad I only got a rollerball. This smells almost exactly like moschino couture does on my skin. On me, I smell tons of benzoin, pink pepper and in sense. Though I find Nannette slightly more modern and beautiful than couture. I got a large rollerball on amazon for $5 so its an awesome find for me! Definitely warm and inviting. This would be beautiful as a fall/winter scent.

I'm not very good at reviews but have to respectfully disagree with the other posters about this being similiar to Estee Lauder's Sensuous Noir. To my nose, SN is much deeper - and the pine note really shines through. Nanette has none of that, is softer, gentler, and "younger" in feel. Nanette and Sensuous Noir are two of my favorite woody fragrances and if you have one, your will probably want and love the other.

When I fist sprayed on Nanette, I almost dismissed it as being just another candy scent - nice, but nothing that has not been done. However, it developed into something amazing when the cedar came out. It's really truly lovely. My hubs doesn't normally like cedar frags because they remind him of having to clean out the hamster cage when he was young, but this fragrance is so beautifully well-rounded that it has none of that vibe.

I picked up a 1 oz for less than $20 on line - one of my best blind buys to date :)

I LOVE Nanette ! It's soft, gently sweet, slightly woody, rich, lightly powdery, with very gentle peppery spices. Beautiful sweet amber glows in this fragrance, enveloping the delicate sweet incense and soft wood ! Florals are beautifully blended, graceful, enticing, making Nanette totally feminine.

Used together with the matching body lotion, Nanette lasts until you wash it off. Wears close to skin. What a beauty !

Yes, similar to Estee Lauder's Sensuous Noir, Nanette is lighter in feel, great for day or night.

Silage is moderate to soft, longevity great !

As much as I think this is a great idea of a perfume, in a beautiful bottle, I now have to agree with other reviewers that it smells cheap and sticky... synthetic. I cannot wear it. I have better ambers!!

The delicate flowers are SMOTHERED by the loud incense/amber/pepper and the notes are very hard to pick out.... no evolution, it is very linear and cloying.

This fragrance opens with a very pretty, strong, floral blast of roses and orange blossom. Quickly it subsides into its true character - one of depth and smokiness. There is a lot of heavy incense, grounded by smokey woods, and balanced out with sweet amber. This is very intense. A little spray goes a long way. Suitable for cooler weather.

Many thanks to ichellemay! for the swap (and generous samples!), so that I could get my hands on a bottle of Nanette Lepore. It’s been on my “want” list, and I’m so happy to try it.

First, the bottle itself is gorgeous--heavy glass reminiscent of antique cut crystal perfume bottles. Nanette’s bottle has nice heft with a smooth and pleasing profile; the crown-shaped top is plastic, but doesn’t look it. The box was a sleek black, lined with peach stripes. The perfume itself is a pale champagne-pink. Overall, an elegant treasure for any boudoir.

First spritz, I had to stifle my desire to scrub it off and remind myself (as so many of you have said) to wait it out the first 30 minutes. It starts very brassy and sharp, with “incense” notes that to my nose smelled like strong tobacco—almost harsh chewing tobacco. It matured to more of a pipe-tobacco note (rounder and fruitier) with some smokiness and pepper notes, but not the incense I was expecting. I also detected the cedar notes, crisp and penetrating but staying an undercurrent to the tobacco notes.

After about 2 hours, the scent is waning. There is still the fruity tobacco note, but it has mellowed to an almost undetectable sweet ashiness. And I use the word “sweet” with caution—nothing about this is flowery, dessertlike or sugary to my nose. “Sweet” only because it has stopped being so sharp. There might be some vanilla peeking out, but it is not a gourmand; I think that is the amber, softening the smoke.

I am catching wafts of it up through my clothes, but have either developed anosmia to it on my wrist or else it is fading. Sillage is low-modest. Longevity seems to be moderate.

This fragrance is going to take multiple wearings to really make up my mind on. It is not an instant favorite, and I’m afraid I’m going to dislike it. I was expecting more spicy-incense and more warmth. Nanette is a cool character, calmly smoking while wrapped in her cedar-scented Pashmina, leaning back and eyeing me mockingly. She’s not going to pour out all of her secrets on this first visit, and somehow I doubt we are going to be good friends…..

While this scent presents itself in a lovely bottle and the champagne pink color is very attractive, the smell of overly sweet synthetic cedar-incense is not appealing to me at all.

It actually reminds me of a toned down version of Gap White Amber, which I can't wear either.

So, while the packaging is lovely, it appears that's where all the money was spent on this one.

Very woody but sweet rather than smoky and strong. The drydown is addictive and seems to stick to my clothes so well. On skin, after about 2-3hrs, it has 6" sillage. I smell pink pepper and amber sweetened by rose. If the incense is there, then it is very soft and not assaulting as it is in Sensuous Noir. Lately (yr 2012), the latest offerings on the market tend toward sweet, floral and somewhat girly. NL is not as sweet, is more mysterious and exotic but soft. Good for office or close-encounters situations (does not offend). Beautiful bottle and black box. $20 for 100ml at select Shoppers. Have stocked up on four boxes so far. Favourite right now. 4/5

Just today I met Nanette... I first got a whiff of florals and vanilla .. almost tonka bean too. She came on strong and bold yet, soft like sugared powder. I got fancy visions of Candied violets, of luxurious powderooms where cosmetics ruled, of plush Persian carpets which hushed the sound of high heels and organza dresses.. oh oh.. whimsical again.. sorry in advance. :D She simply crawled in my brain and stayed there. Nanette is not to be ignored! It is the best amber based oriental fragrance I have ever owned. She is lovely, warm , sweet as honey and dripping with gold and crystal. The incense is a note i enjoy greatly and in Nanette, I find it mellow and somehow sacred. She holds no bitterness, she lingers forever and becomes creamy, rich and presents a buttery-ricey note that warms the woods up greatly. Long lasting and ever so classy, she is a great addition to my collection and her elegant bottle is ever so gorgeous! The crystal reflects the manyfold nature of Nanette: the wearer. As someone mentionned, she does seem to change often, as if the scent pyramid was constructed around the eternity concetp: from top to base then back to the top.. I personally will fold myself in her amber cover of woodsy honey this fall xxx

That's how I feel, too, Jellybean. The combination of incense plus sweet make for an all too strange combination, which turns it completely sour. Whether on my skin or from the bottle, this is a sour fragrance, and it's disgusting. It's cheap, and for a reason. Yuck.

This one has cheapo written all over it! Synthetical disaster:(
Let me gauge the ingredients: musty sugar, that's really all there is to it. It dries down to this strange peppery musk aka something's going stale.
Knock of sweet teeny celeb fumes that posses no quality whatsoever. This one utterly stinks.
Contradictory to its contents, the flask is cutish.
Waste of my $20 bucks.

What a wonderful surprise this turned out to be. A sweet woody floral but ever so smooth in transition from ambery to balmy. A hint of pink pepper with emphasis on the pink. One of those fragrances that you smell and go "mmmmmmm"....

Beautiful bottle and box.

Pleasant enough scent... different than what I was expecting. Was hoping for more of a spicy kick.

Not seeing the resemblance to E.L. Sensuous Noir at all, which I wear almost every day. S. Noir has a great fresh patchouli river running through it and an almost plummy (though not listed) depth.

This does not seem sweet to me, but then, I love the really sweet frags like Flowerbomb and Pink Sugar... on a sweetness scale of 1-10, I'd say this only rates about a 3 in comparison to those.

Doesn't last long on me. 15 minutes of 6" projection, and within an hour its so close to the skin as to be almost undetectable by me. I'll have to wear it to work and see if anyone comments. That seems to happen to me a lot... I can't detect my perfume, others can.

I detect a smokey tobacco leaf note (which is perhaps the powder aspect?), a touch of honey (very light amber?), a tad bit of woodiness (that grows over time). The rose is a whisper, which is fine by me since rose gives me headaches... The spices are barely there.

For the price, its a safe buy. The bottle alone is worth it. But I'll stick with my precious Sensuous Noir.

Edit: Okay, its been a little over 2 hours, and I'm catching whiffs of wood. Ever so light sweet (hint of rose?) cedar wood. Not too dry... but not wet. Its rather pleasant. Not masculine. Almost like I'm standing in a building made entirely of wood. I can see me layering this scent, considering the dry down.

ok, I agreed to swap for this even though it has an incense note it in, I hate incense by it self so i have been scared of this note. However when i found there is incense in scents that i love (only a few) i have told myself not to be so scared about it. But still in the back of my mind i was freaking out. I got it in the mail the other night and tried and and wow this is such a lovely elegant scent I really really like it and am very happy with my swap. Now I really LIKE this but don't love it, its so pretty but still not sure if its something i would reach for much. But we'll see the more i talk about it on her the more i want to go up to my room and smell this lovely, delicate, elegant fragrance.

weegee, thank you for your very helpful review - I have Nanette and like it a lot. I've also been wanting to try Sensuous Noir because the notes all sound so good, but Estee Lauder scents often don't agree with me. So knowing this is even better, especially at the very reasonable price, really makes my day!

I don't find it overly sweet at all, unlike the Nanette Lepore Nanette Lepore (flowery pink bottle.) This one has the wonderful woody notes in the dry down, and I think the pink pepper counters the sweetness too. It's an oriental floral that doesn't shout - it's fine for work but it has staying power. The bottle is a little hard to spray from, but it is lovely.

Nanette by Nanette Lepore is an unheralded wonder!. There's a light sweetness to the incense (rather than a smokey feel) that emphasizes the loveliness of pale pink roses seamlessly blended with the tang of cedar and a milky, woody subtle violet with hints of almond (although there is actually no almond note) that all combine as something truly beautiful.

Longevity is 6-8 hours and people stop me to ask the name of the gorgeous fragrance I'm wearing -- you simply cannot go wrong! If you find a bottle that includes the pink & black zippered train case you'll find it a nice bonus.

Edit: a kind member sent me a sample of Barbara Bui and the drydown is identical to Nanette but Nanette lasts hours longer. If you have Nanette you need not add BB to your collection.

The body lotion is also lovely and increases the longevity of the fragrance by another 2-4 hours.

I've been spending some time getting to know Nanette. When I first wore it, I swear it reminded me of one of the Poisons - can't remember which - and that scared me b/c I don't do well with them. I don't usually go for perfumes with the incense note, so I initially wasn't sure if this was for me or not. Just about the time I was thinking - No, this is too much - too sweet, too cloying, etc. Nanette FINALLY mellowed out to a lovely woody, creamy scent on my skin. I find it lasts about 7 hours on me, and is strong, so I spray lightly. Waiting for this scent to settle is hard though so I don't think I'll be wearing it much.

The bottle is beautiful - heavy crystal and elegantly shaped; totally worthy of a showcase spot on the dresser with a spotlight on it! The purchase price was surprisingly inexpensive for such luxury and elegance. If you like woody floral orientals, I would think that this one needs to be in your collection.

I just purchased this last week. Now that I've had it a few days to get to know this beautiful perfume I can say that I loved it from the start and couldn't stop smelling my wrist! But I was also feeling nostalgic and haunted by the fact that it reminded me soooo much of something else in my collection. This smells like 70% Rochas Absolu and 30% Armani Emporio Diamonds. I become obsessed with Absolu every fall, but I think I like Nanette just a little better because of the incense note which turns Nanette into something of a mysterious enigma of a scent. Just beautiful. LOVE it!!! My husband gave me a compliment too so this is a keeper. So glad I added this little gem to my collection!

Nanette is one of those gems when you can't stop wondering why is it so inexpensive for being such good quality. I would describe it as warm, sexy and mysterious ...a wonderful combination of incensy rose and amber. Great lasting power and sillage. Highly recommended for oriental floral lovers who prefer perfume with more depth!

I am completely obsessed with Nanette. I would do anything to have it forever. I wish they would make perfumes forever but that's not possible! :)

Anyway, if you love floral spicy, check this out. You won't regret it. Very sexy and sophisticated.

I need to buy some (I just have a sample vial) but I don't know if it's discontinued or not, does anyone know if it's still being manufactured?

This is a wonderful spicy floriental. A very peppery opening soon gives way to a beautiful melange of predominately rose, violet, amber, and incense. The incense in this is gorgeous and lends the fragrance a sexy, mysterious edge. Amber - one of my favorite notes - gives the base a dry, musky sweetness, much preferred over the vanilla overload that we've all become accustomed to. Ultimately, it stays quite close to the skin, so no need to worry about offending anyone after the boisterous opening calms down.

I agree with the previous reviewer that this is not a light, girly scent as the ad campaign suggests...it will more likely bring out your bad girl. My man loves it. ;-)

Overall impressions: very sexy, sophisticated, classic. The bottle is one of the most beautiful in my collection (if not the most beautiful). Nanette said she was inspired by a classic perfume bottle she saw while in Italy.

The price can't be beat - I got a large bottle for less than $25! At that price, even if you don't like the scent, the bottle will at least look gorgeous on your dressing table.

A must have for any woman who admires classic perfumes like Coco, or woody scents like Sensuous by Estee Lauder or the original Prada.

Lots of sweet incense; a very deep scent, and very cheap! Im surprised this doesn't cost much more! It lasts a very long time and it is a very unique and lovely scent. There is definitely a praline or chocolate/vanilla note in this. It is an Oriental Floral Gourmand. Similar to Shisedio FDB, Sensuous Noir EL, and Belle D' Opium minus the fruit, but costs way less then all. It is not a light floral or fruity perfume as the bottle and advertising might suggest :-) it is very warm, like a big hug or canoodling with your loved one. For mature women only. A lovely perfume, but without the powder and all the unnecessary extras, like all of NP's perfumes :-) reasonably priced and lasts a very long time :-)

I bought the roller ball after a quick sniff...it smelled beautiful in the bottle, but once it hit my skin....

The pink peppercorn is overwhelming when Nanette is first put on. The smell made me sick every time my wrists came within a foot of my nose. I don't know if it is the chemistry of my skin, but the opening just smells awful. Once you hit the mid and base notes, Nanette turns into an absolutely beautiful perfume. The vanilla, amber and floral notes finally mix with the pink peppercorn and it smells so sophisticated. Problem is, you have to wait a good hour to two hours to hit the middle notes. I find layering this with a slightly sweeter perfume, such as Paris Hilton's "Tease" helps tone down the pink peppercorn.

Nanette is a great perfume, after 2 hours. I just can't take the opening. Once it hits the middle notes and goes into the dry down, it becomes a beautiful, sophisticated scent that I love.

unfortunately, this did absolutely nothing for me-I'm not a floral fan in general but sometimes I do find a floral that I could like or even love(Stella, which was the most amazing rose fragrance). Before I smelled Stella, I always associated rose fragrances with a sort of mediciney, old fashioned rose water scents and unfortunately, that's what I got in Nanette Lepore. All I could smell were bitter rose fragrance mixed with a spicy peppery note. Not for me. I really wanted to like it but even on the drydown, it smelled the same on me. There is no sweetness in this, none whatsoever and perhaps thats why I did not care for it. Too bad...

I bought this perfume untested..as I fell in love with nanette lepore (the cute pink bottle) and I thought that if Lepore had produced such a well-made perfume I'm sure this one would be nice too. And yes she did not disappoint me =) Nanette is another well-blended perfume by Lepore. It is in stark contrast with the pink bottled one as that one is very young-smelling. This perfume to me is very oriental, spicy and warm. It has that oriental floral flavour like that of YSL's Belle d'Opium (im sure there are other similar oriental perfumes to this, but opium is the only oriental perfume that comes to mind right now). However, it is wayyy softer than opium and very wearable. I dont usually wear oriental perfume as I often find them a bit too strong for my taste, but I love this one. It's very very elegant, mature but not old. The dry-down is quite beautiful although it sorta fades and blends in with your skin scent..on me, I was left with only warmness, woody tones and a touch of vanilla. I had recently passed my teen years so whenever I want to feel like a woman, elegant and mature, I spray this perfume on. It has a touch of sweetness but not cloying at all and the dry down is very warm. Great to wear at night and during winter season. Overall, this perfume is very well made and the bottle is just gorgeously elegant like the juice inside it ;)

I was pleasantly surprised by this fragrance! I was convinced that there were fruity notes in it because it seemed so sweet. The pink peppercorn remained steady well into the woodsy drydown. The peppercorn is what makes this fragrance very interesting. I don't really get incense in the base notes, only vanilla. I would buy this one if it lasted longer.

My expectation for this was a light, somewhat old-fashioned floral, but that's not what I got at all. On me it was very, very spicy, but still elegant. It wasn't at all typical, but it wasn't loud and in-your-face either. It dried down quickly and I was left with a peppery, woody smell that was still feminine.

I love the neroli and pink pepper opening! The violet is prominent in the heart, but I couldn't stop smelling my wrist on the dry-down. It's the "hot cedar wood" that has me hooked. I love it.

Update: It's better in cold weather than in warm, but I easily spritzed through my whole bottle in one year. It's so easy to wear and the base is very creamy, comforting, and just the right amount of "woody" for an oriental floral.

it reminds me of a fragrance. I want to say Linstant Magic minus the beautiful powdery quality. Add a honey to it. My sister said it smells like maple syrup. A little too sweet in my opinin. Its okay but i will not be buying a bottle

Beautiful Frangrance; A little sweet but not too sweet. I tried this initially with a sample in Lucky. I had to have it. Try it you won't be dissapointed!

This is a very sweet, woody perfume and fans of the recently-released celebrity fragrances: Queen, by Queen Latifah; as well as Saint, by Kat Von D, will find this perfume quite enjoyable.

I smell blackberry, which isn't listed in the notes, as well as a lot of vanilla, and a touch of cedar and incense. I do smell the violet in the top notes, as well as the rose, though both floral notes fade quickly, leaving behind a fruity, sweet, almost cloying scent. That said, I find it quite enjoyable. It has a buttery tone that I find somewhat unique - it's almost reminiscent of butterscotch candy. The lasting power is quite decent and though I find Nanette's overall presence to be light, it has quite a bit of beautiful sillage.

The effect is lovely and though, as I mentioned previously, it does smell similar to other fragrances launched this fall, it's my favorite in the category of sweet, woody fragrances released thus far into the season. Nanette Lepore does a great bottle and this one is no exception - simple and chic, yet dazzling and glamorous.

It just hit department store shelves and I definitely recommend checking it out!
