Nina Ricci Signoricci (1965/1976) Green Citrus
•Top Notes: Bergamot, Galbanum, Green Notes, Lemon, Petitgrain •Middle Notes: Carnation, Lily of the Valley, Mandarin, Rose •Base Notes: Amber, Cedar, Civet, Labdanum, Moss, Tonka Bean, Vetiver
Green and citrus notes in the top, with a slightly metallic vibe on my skin. The base notes are not in evidence much at the very beginning; they do come out after a little bit, but the sillage is not very strong. This is a kind of skin scent, and would probably do well in warmer weather. There seems to exist some confusion over various formulations, but the bottle I have (and its box) look exactly like the picture for the original formulation in the Basenotes Directory.

Yr good bud,
"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"
Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.

Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.
Male irato ferrum committitur.
It is an evil thing to arm an angry man.
