L'air du Printemps by Nina Ricci: new edition of L'air du Temps

Nina Ricci is launching a spring spin on their iconic L'air du Temps fragrance, the one which sells one bottle every 5 minutes somewhere in the world: The new fragrance is called L'air du Printemps (Spring Air)
and has been slightly adapted by Olivier Cresp who retained the freshness of the original juice but injected some more powdery and sensual notes with a crystalline, modern facet. In the heart jasmine is married to rose and frangipani, while a pear note on musks provides more powderiness. The final accord of cedar and sandalwood affirm its femininity. The interlocking doves of the original bottle are kept, while the body of the flacon is given a rosy hue matching the romanticism that the fragrance always evoked.L'air du Printemps by Nina Ricci is going to be a Limited Edition. I admit that although I am usually not drawn to concepts of festive editions, this looks to me like a most romantic gift to be received. Available from March, 69,50€ for 100ml

  1. have they knocked out that carnation I seem to smell alot in it?
    It could be a very nice scent if they have (to me anyway) but I see its one of those rotten "limited eds"! Rrrr

  2. Dear M,

    I think the carnation is indeed very characteristic in the original version of the fragrance. It seems that this version is going to play more on a rose & white florals theme. It sounds quite nice, especially as it should be musky and powdery, and pear is an unusual note, but the limited edition thing is rather deterring (to us anyway! LOL). Imagine if you end up loving something and not being able to replenish...
