NINA RICCi New Fragrance @ La tentation de Nina

Her name is Nina. She is young, beautiful and mysterious. She is on a quest: a journey towards herself, through a labyrinthine forest. Should she pass through the mirror? Or follow that snowy owl? Bite into this apple? Or else cross this frontier? There is a gleam in the distance. It is coming from a light in the window of a house, deep in the woods. She tightens her cape and quickens her stride. Something is drawing her there, but what can it be? Nina Le tentation de Nina arrives in front of the house. All is quiet. She hesitates before going in, and thinks back to the tales of her childhood... Thatched cottages lost in the forest, witches and their spells... She then smiles at her fears and takes a step forwards. She looks through the window. No one is at home. Just an apple. The Apple. That apple which is constantly appearing before her and summoning her. Nina decides to go in. She walks over to it. Picks it up. Bites into it.

Barely has Nina bitten into it, than the room starts spinning around her. She no longer knows where she is. When the spinning stops, she finds herself in a cake shop. A magic cake shop, of course. A delicious fragrance is wafting through the room. Sweetness and temptation lie everywhere. It is as if she were in a bubble. And in this bubble, there is a treasure. A treasure for the senses. It is all around her. With everything she loves. Everything she desires, without being able to name it. All these delights make her mind whirl, with the headiness of indulgence. It is quite normal, she has taken a bite. Unless she dreamed it. It is a macaron-like fragrance; or a perfume-like macaron. This limited, highly sought-after edition was born from the magical encounter between Ladurée and Nina Ricci. It opens a new chapter in a fairy tale that started in 2006, and it is all about Nina. It is an adventure punctuated with surprises, collectors’ items and irresistible must-haves. Right from the beginning, its apple-bottle has become the emblematic symbol of a generation.

It starts with a delicate sensation to the touch. A soft-touch bottle of an infinite mildness. A trace has been left on the apple’s skin: a hint of gold on a pure, rosy apple. La Tentation de Nina is a fresh, floral, fruity Eau de Toilette, which is utterly addictive. It is the new creation of Olivier Cresp, Master Perfumer and creator of Nina’s saga. In an awakening of the senses, a macaron accord has been married to the distinctly singular signature of Nina. Firstly, Italian bergamot envelops its citrus facets, before a zest of grapefruit rounds off this incitement to desire. Then raspberries, almonds, lemons and Bulgarian rose absolute join together in a surprising macaron accord. Finally, Bourbon vanilla, white musk and sandalwood round off its sensual headiness.
