I recently posted a review on a bottle of perfume that I own, the Nina Ricci Premier Jour fragrance, I happened to review this as I had been having a little bit of a clear out and it was one of those fragrances that had been put to the back of a draw but that I have recently been using again. The sort out also led me to find some soap by Nina Ricci, this was the L’Air du Temps Body Soap and was was part of a gift set, I have used the perfume up but never used the soap, so when my bar of Dove soap next ran out I set about using this one and here are my thoughts.

The soap as I mentioned was part of a set, if you brought this as an individual piece then it would cost around the £13.95 mark, this is for the 100g bar. I think that this is really pricy for some soap and I personally would not pay this. The soap that I had was on a much smaller scale but even so I think it is hard to justify the price tag. To buy individually the soap is found on websites such as Cheap Smells and Fragrance direct, it is not something that you tend to find in the shops.

The soap, the larger sized one comes in a round sized pot; mine was wrapped in some delicate paper. There is an ingredients listing of the soap as well as the name of the brand on the front of the soap. The soap has a noticeable scent to it before you have even used it. With regard to directions for use, we are told to lather the soap up, either in hands first or directly onto the skin with some warm water. The soap has a film forming ingredient which allows the soap to glide across the skin and the perfume scent will then fully come out.

The soap is a yellow into cream colour and there is a picture of 2 birds printed into the soap, it lathers up really well and I began using this soap as opposed to face wash. The soap is of a really good quality and you only need a small amount to get a really good lather going.

The soap is a mixture of scents, ones that are identical to the L’Air du Temp perfume; there are top notes of bergamot and peach, middle notes of rose and jasmine and a base note of Iris, Cedar and sandalwood. The first scent that I noticed was the peach, it was so light and refreshing and then this was followed by the middle note of the rose, it made washing my face a really lovely experience. What I liked was that I could still smell the scent after washing and this soap, like many others that I have tried did not leave my skin feeling dried out.

The soap did a great job of removing all traces of dirt as well as being a great make up remover, all that I needed to do after using the soap was some toner and all dirt was gone! I liked that this made my skin feel quite silky after using it as well as the fact that the scent was still on my skin so I could smell it all night long!

In summary, whilst I would be happy to recommend this soap, I do think that it is quite expensive, unless you will be using this as your make up remover and nothing else then I think it is hard to justify the cost. The quality is excellent though and the fragrance is amazing, the rose and peach are really great.

4 out of 5 from me
