Twilight Fragrance: Nina Ricci Comparison

Twilight Takes a Bite From Nina Ricci's Apple

Poor Robert Pattinson. Not only does he have thousands of Twilight-obsessed teenagers chasing him, he's now going to smell them coming. That's because Hot Topic is stocking Twilight perfume ($48), a lavender-and-freesia scent. I'd tell you what it smells like, but I cannot bring myself to enter Hot Topic without feeling grizzled and going off on a tirade about mall emo.

I'll wager that it's not a sophisticated scent, and I'll also bet that Nina Ricci's lawyers are busy bees. Twilight has blatantly knocked off the fashion house's signature bottle (at right). Then again, I'd argue that the idea of a teenage girl who falls in love with a vampire who doesn't feed on people was knocked off from Buffy, so what do I know?

What about the fragrance Lolita Lempicka??? its been around a lot longer than nina ricci perfume and her bottle is an apple so technically this nina ricci bottle was "bitten" from Lolita Lempicka which is by far in my opinion better than nina ricci's. I am a huge twilight fan and really think if your familiar with the books its a fitting package for there own brand of fragrance.

The words on the bottle (the Twilight one) "The forbidden fruit taste the sweetest" . Sounds like something child molesters would say.

What a bunch of haters. I happen to love Nina Ricci perfume so I am sad to see that there is a cheap noc off even if it is for a book I love. I agree their marketing department has gotten a little out of hand but don't judge the book off that or the fans. It's an amazing series and you should read it and then pass judgment.

i LOVE the twilight books! love love love them. but the sparkles and perfume and replica jewelry are a little much even for a fan like me. and ripping off an icon like nina ricci is ridiculous. plus the actual fragrance is gag inducing.

You are quite late, Bellasugar... I saw they launched the parfum like last week or 2 and the second that I saw it, I knew I've already saw something very similar to it. xD

When you think about Twilight's target demographic, it's no wonder that all their merchandise scream tackiness. My friend is in love with the books and that Edward character. I'm so embarrassed for her. She's 23, for God's sake.

Personally I love twilight and I think the author I a great author, but im not so sure about the perfume and Hot Topic. Some people say they hate the book when they haven’t even read it.

They couldn't have made an apple bottle that didn't look just like the Nina Ricci one?

What's the old saying? "A fool and his money are soon parted." Fools bought millions of copies of the (poorly edited, dull, overhyped) books, and they'll buy millions of bottles of perfume. Well, maybe thousands.

Sorry, but I'd rather buy Hot Topic's Edward Cullen Body Shimmer. I want to dazzle my professors to give me A's. It wouldn't surprise me if Hot Topic nicked the design. They have some of the most unoriginal, overpriced stuff I've ever seen.

Bella, I like the books too ... they are my guilty pleasure and I call them my 'teenage vampire smut' ;) I highly doubt that they asked Nina if they could borrow that design. Gah I'm happy I'm not a patent attorney. Natty Boh and Pringles have been fighting for years ;)
