Zesty Blossoms of Spring
Nina Ricci has introduced a fairytale vegan scent called Nina. Jacques Cavallier, Olivier Cresp, and Christian Dussoulier collaborated for their debut in 2006 to develop Nina.
Musk, Virginia cedar, and apple tree serve as the base, while Amalfi lemon and lime serve as the top notes. The perfume is mostly fruity and citrusy, with faint floral undertones for balance. Although this scent has hints of white cedar and subtle musk, the apples and lemons are distinct. It can make anyone feel and smell like spring any time of the year.
Nina is crafted with only natural ingredients through a more sustainable process. The Fragrance House claims to utilize every last bit of the lemon to create Nina.
L’Air du Temps
Strength of Womanhood
Nina Ricci launched its debut fragrance in 1948, L’Air du Temps, symbolizing the House’s ageless quality. Its floral accord is a tribute to the strength of womanhood in an era of unbridled hope during the world war. The bottle’s packaging has two doves entangled atop the bottle, representing peace, love, and freedom.
Robert Ricci and Francis Fabron used a carnation motif with rosewood, rose, jasmine, and bergamot. The carnation’s floral-spicy undertone is a crucial element. Violet and iris harmonize with cedar and sandalwood. Musk and amber round out the composition with their feminine accord.
It can be worn throughout the day, but this sophisticated scent was meant for a special nighttime event.
L’Extase Caresse de Roses
Liberating Erotic Fantasies
Nina L’Extase Caresse De Roses is the pinnacle of seductive sophistication with a luxurious fragrance and packaging. L’Extase is motivated by a woman’s erotica and encourages a woman to liberate her imagination.
The perfumer Francis Kurkdjian formulated this extraordinary aroma. He began with a combination of sweet pears and bergamot. He then added peonies, lilies, and a variety of roses, such as Turkish and Bulgarian roses to increase the intensity. The violet, patchouli, and white musk foundation notes and the raspberry top notes round off the seductive combination.
It is very seductive and will make anyone ready to fall in love.
Vivid & Romantic
Created by Nina Ricci, Bella is a fruity floral perfume for ladies, released in 2018. It was inspired by the idea of a contemporary princess, developed by Sonia Constant and Louise Turner.
