    Default Re: nina ricci: the notes


    The release history of Signoricci is very complicated as you’ll see from the following questions:

    Question #1:
    Is the Signoricci (the old version) you refer to the original Signoricci 1 which wasn’t called Signoricci 1 till Signoricci 2 was introduced in 1976? Up until then it went by the name of Signoriccci. Many times websites will give the notes for Signoricci 1 for Signoricci (Signoricci 2 when the 2 was dropped). In other words Signoricci (Signoricci 1) and Signoricci (Signoricci 2) are often confused.

    Question #2:
    Or, is the Signoricci (the old version) you refer to Signoricci 2, which had the “2” dropped when Signoricci 1 was discontinued and henceforth was called “Signoricci”.

    Question #3
    Is Signoricci (new version) the Signoricci 2 with the “2” dropped (sometime during the 1980s) or does it refer to the recent released Signoricci (2005), which differs significantly from all previous versions

    I have all version of Signoricci and they all differ. The list goes something like this:

    Signoricci 1 (first simply called Signoricci and later Signoricci 1 when Signoricci 2 was released in 1976) originally released in 1965

    Signoricci 2 (later, sometime in the late 1980s (?), released as Signoricci) originally released in 1976

    Signoricci (Signoricci 2 with the 2 dropped released in the late 1980s (?) and reformulated somewhat so that it does differ from Signoricci 2)

    Signoricci (released in 2005, a reformulation of Signoricci 2/Signoricci, and a decidedly attenuated and inferior reformulation at that)

    To make matters even more complicated Signoricci 1, was also rereleased Nina Ricci Men.

    As you can see from these questions, the answer to anyone of them matters a lot if we are to match the notes of these fragrances with their respective releases.

    Can I also ask where you got your info. from?

    I will send a PM to you! i hope that's allright!
    it really is very confusing isn't it!
    I have all the answers!

    anyways, in short (the longer response is just for ya!):

    signoricci (old vers): original version
    signoricci 2: original signoricci -reformulated, with "2" added.
    signoricci (new vers): 2005 new reformulation version.
    signoricci 80's version or- signoricci2 with 2 dropped and reformulated : ???
