Stiletto by Nicole Amy Isn’t Just a Gimmick

Some things in the beauty industry can be a bit gimmicky. And when you find perfume housed in a stiletto heel-shaped bottle, “gimmick” immediately springs to mind.

But, while Stiletto by Nicole Amy certainly has that feeling from the shoe bottle, that doesn’t change the quality of the scent inside. If a perfume smells great, it doesn’t matter what shape it comes in.

That’s the attitude I had when I tried Stiletto. Sure, it’s in a shoe, but I wanted to give it an honest review anyway. (And the shoe is actually kind of cute; I’m not going to lie.)

What does it smell like?

Stiletto is sultry, romantic and feminine. It smelled like vanilla and baby powder. It reminded me of one of my favorite body sprays, Degree Sexy Intrigue Body Mist, except with warm vanilla added in for good measure.

I really liked this scent. While it’s not super unique, it was pleasant for sure.

What if you’re sensitive?

I have sensitive skin when it comes to perfume. If the scent is too harsh or overpowering, I’ll break out. It’s not pretty.

Luckily, Stiletto by Nicole Amy didn’t give me any adverse reactions. It’s not overly harsh and it didn’t hurt my skin.

How long does it last?

Stiletto only lasted a few hours before I couldn’t smell it at all. That’s a bit shorter than you would hope for in a perfume. If you need something long-lasting you’ll either need to take this with you (imagine the stiletto shoe in your purse!), or try something else.

The Final Verdict

I liked this scent, despite the fact that it wasn’t very unique and it didn’t last very long. The fact that it didn’t make me break out is always a plus. For these reasons, I give Stiletto by Nicole Amy a…

  1. aaahhhh I love that bottle! I thought it was a real shoe at first, that is one gimmick I definitely don’t mind.

    Scent doesn’t sound like it’s for me though, I’m meh about Vanilla fragrances unless they’re combined with other things and not overpowering. Thanks for the review!

  2. I must say this gimmick is so cool!.. The Stiletto bottle is so unique. It’s so funny thinking the perfume is inside the shoe. Ha ha ha

  3. Ohhh, this is fun. Hmmm, nice idea. I’m curious how it smell, lol.
