Nina Ricci annually launches a new version, a limited edition of the original Nina from 2006. The edition for 2015 is called Les Délices de Nina, inspired by strawberry candy.

Perfumers Marie Salamagne and Olivier Cresp collaborated on the creation of this new, fresh, fruity and sweet composition. The fragrance opens with fresh notes of mandarin and lemon leading to the core—a combination of mara strawberry and white caramel. All of this is laid on the soft base of raspberry extract, praline and white musk.

The iconic apple-shaped bottle comes in a soft pink bubble gum color, covered in melting golden color that symbolizes caramel. The fragrance is available as 50 and 75 ml Eau de Toilette.

Perfume rating: 4.18 out of 5 with 164 votes.

Les Delices de Nina Fragrance Reviews

When I blind bought this after looking at the notes I expected a very creamy scent due to the fact it contains caramel as a predominate note. However, to me, this is very fresh, very clean and I get big, bright red strawberries then almost instantly it mixes with a gorgeous musk but not a heavy musk, a crisp musk. This effect is just perfect!! I personally get no laundry soap as some reviews have stated. It lasts fairly long for the type it is approx 4-5 hours. Sillage is decent too. I tested it on my daughter. Easy to come by online and will be purchasing more because it seems every scent I love becomes obsolete.

Lovely smell. To me it smells like fresh sunshine mixed with a touch of child-like whimsy. Also smells kind of like fresh laundry but in a good way. The bottle is adorable and beautiful. The lemon note in there is very soft and nicely blended in. The only thing I don't like about it is that the oriental element is a little too strong. It might smell good to others who can smell it on me when it fades, but for me when I actually sniff it it smells too strong and old ladyish. (The sweetness of this fragrance, however, probably needs an exotic oriental to balance it out and mature it a little so that it is suitable for "grown ups." I feel that an oriental vibe was the probably most exotic and best choice for this purpose.) But WHERE IS THE STRAWBERRY!?!?!?! I bought this fragrance under the pretenses that it would smell like strawberry candy (mixed with caramel.) I don't smell the caramel at all but I can smell the strawberry a little bit...not nearly as much as I'd like. Finding a true strawberry fragrance is very difficult and I've been trying for years. Even still, this is my go-to fragrance every day, and for every date, concert, or special occasion. Truly one of the most unique fragrances on the market. Kind of smells like what I would envision strawberry shortcake would smell like haha (To me that is a good thing cuz she's adorabe :P) I've gotten compliments on it from people of all ages, even my male teenage cousin. One time I was walking around NYC and I said to myself, "What smells like fresh berries?" then I realized it was me! This was a blind buy and boy did I get lucky. Wear this fragrance if you want to smell cute, fresh, flirty and fun...AND not smell like anyone else (except for the other unique individuals who were smart enough to jump on buying this product as soon as it came out!)

I go this last year and it was my first perfume by Nina Ricci (I own 3 now). I am really sad this is a limited edition because I absolutely adore it! On me, I mostly feel the strawberry, the green apple and the caramel. I don't really feel the citrus notes. It's a beautiful warm fragrance that's not too sweet for my taste. The bottle us absolutely gorgeous and although it requires being cleaned every now and them, most of the time it looks almost as shiny as it was when I just opened it.

I find this perfume really suitable for people in their early 20s who prefer not-in-your-face inoffensive fragrances. It's also not something I see a lot of people wearing so it makes me feel even happy about owning it. I hope I get the chance to re-purchase it.

Sillage: moderate
Longevity: 6-8 hours

Smells like a more youthful version of the original, in any way you can think of. On me, it smells like a musky, green strawberry bon bon with caramel--the musk should definitely be higher on the scent pyramid. The original Nina is gorgeous smells very nice but very astringent on me, so this is an improvement. Honestly when I think about it, this is like a cross between the original Nina and Viktor&Rolf Bon Bon! Very pretty and sparkling scent and bottle. It is nothing really that unique and arguably quite generic, but it's likeable. Definitely a youthful scent. Smells very true to its creator, Olivier Cresp, who to me is one of the best perfumers today for gourmands.

If you plan to buy this perfume only for the bottle, here's a spoiler- the metal part is very fast and easily stained, it won't keep it's shiny just-out-of-the-box look.

The perfume itself is not bad, like the original apple, plus strawberry and caramel jawbreakers :)) good, honestly.

Adorable bottle but I wish the fragrance was richer and creamier. It just smells like the original but has more lemon and is slightly sweeter. I was hoping for more sticky caramel.

Suprisingly, I don't find this to be very sweet. It opens juicy, with raspberry, apple and citruses to my nose. I detect very little strawberry. The caramel isn't very dominant, but manages to give it a sweeter, rounder undertone.

It dries down to a rounder, fluffier version of the original, at least in my opinion. Very glad I found a bottle (by the way, how gorgeous is that hot pink, caramel-dipped apple?) of this limited gem.

In short: fluffy. Cute bottle. Yum.

Elegant and sweet floral fruity scent! Also, my mum's signature :) It is a tender fragrance, it seems to smile at you from the corner. Feminine floral notes, backed by warm citrus accords and delicious praline and musk. It is soft and fluffy. And the bottle is uniquely pretty.

Beautiful bottle, beautiful scene, beautiful color, i love everything about her. This could be my favourite from Nina flankers. It is sweet but not cloying like La Tentation de Nina. This one more lemony than the others, but the drydown is sweet like what Nina is all about.

I spray it on when I want to feel fresh and want something that keeps me awake on dark winter mornings. It has a compact sillage, which surprised me but like it, when I went out of my office and went back after 5 minutes I could smell the scent in the room.

I waited so long to get this fragrance on my hands. And I have to say, it's not as sickening sweet as i hoped it to be. I was really hoping that the caramel would be predominate, but oh well. It's still a quite lovely, sweet fragrance. It's such a beautiful bottle.

I'm still awaiting for the La Tentation to come in and that's also supposed to be a delicious gourmand fragrance..

I enjoy this fragrance. It's very fruity, like a strawberry candy. It's sweet and fresh like all of the other Nina's. I'm never let down by their perfumes. Delicious, lovely and absolutely beautiful :)

I absolutley agree that this will be too sweet for some people but when I tested this out in the perfume hall of my local department store I knew I had to have it and especially as it's a limited edition! The first thing that I notice about this *and this will aound all wrong* is that its a fresh sweet, not a sickly sweet, also has lovely citrus notes in too. The bottle is lovely too - a hot pink apple with a golden top! Really glad I got this!

Back in 2009 I ran into this gorgeous perfume called "Love by Nina", by Nina Ricci. Ended up not buying it and regretting it for years, since it was a limited edition.
After 6 years, I finally get the chance to finally own that perfume - yes, Les Delices smells just like Love by Nina!
It's sweet, fruity and bubbly. It's lovely.

This should not be a limited edition but should be added to the regular Nina line.

A generic fresh, and fruity scent. I would´n pay that much for something I can´t even remember after trying on a sample for three days. Nice, yes, but too nice and tame. This is nothing special. Sillage is non-existant and longevity is very short. A fragance for little girls that could be equally happy with a cheaper bottle of Hello Kitty EDT. The sample was accompanied by a little steel apple charm wich I like very much. At least after trying this I have a lovely steel charm in a pink silken cord ;)

I decided on treating myself to a new perfume, and after not-so-careful consideration I bought this blindly instead of getting Black Opium from YSL because I figured it was too heavy for the warm seasons. But I digress.
Les Delices is annoying to spell but it makes up for it by being absolutely lovely. The scent really matches the bottle. It's fresh and sweet, the opening reminds me of sparkling lemonade and after a while the strawberries pop out. I guess I'm a tiny bit disappointed that the caramel note isn't as prominent as I thought it would be, and that this scent doesn't last too long on me (though my sense of smell could be completely wrecked after six months of wearing nothing but super heavy scents).
TL;DR version: Sweet and fresh, recommended for summer, pwetty bottle, not-so-long lasting.

Edit: After wearing it almost daily for a few weeks, I can say that it lasts longer than I thought. Although I stop noticing it after just a few hours I've gotten plenty of compliments on my perfume even after an entire day (to which I instinctively reply "I'm not wearing any perfume", because I have the memory of a goldfish).
I also tried layering this with Bonbon because, dammit, I wanted the caramel to be more prominent, and heureka! It was perfect.

Looks good on paper but this perfume is actually a bit too light for my taste. It's not powerful, not a statement type of fragrance. the bottle is very pretty and it looks well in my collection. Teenagers might like this one as it reminds me a bit of Escada Magnetism.

Another sweetness bomb from Nina Ricci. I sense delicious gourmand notes and lucious fruity notes. I would have been in love with it, if I wouldn't have had Nina l'elixir for a long time.
Don't get me wrong, I think it's lovely.
I am just too used to this type of scent and I guess I wouldn't buy another one of these.

it has a musky shampoo note in the opening that's nice but very generic and then lemon and caramel come through and take over but to me they don't blend well at all

I just got mine today from France. I agree, it's not gourmand. In fact, it's not much different from the original. The bottle is drenched in caramel (adorable, I might add), but where is the caramel in the juice? I'm a gourmand girl, and while it's not terrible, it is definitely a let down. Another floral fruity. Sigh.

The bottle is much prettier on the picture than in real life. The color of the bottle is hot pink and not bubble gum pink like in all the pictures. I just got my bottle today and I like it so far. It is very fruity and sweet, but I'm having trouble sensing the caramel. Maybe it will come in the drydown. Les Delices is in the same vein as La Tentation except La Tentation is a little bit sweeter. I still think this will be great for spring as it's very refreshing!

I've been waiting for it for 2 months, and now it has been released in France, I have to say it is not what I expected according to the notes. I've tried it, it's not gourmand, it's a bit sweet but not in the way I expected. It is light, better for spring and summer. It smells like candies but it is not too sweet. The "golden caramel" on the bottle is nice, it's original.

I'm curious if this fragrance is sweet, and the caramel and strawberry stand out?
