Story of the fragrance
In designing Nina Ricci L'Air du Temps, the perfumer Calice Becker was inspired by the floral ingredients of the original fragrance from 1940s, and created a brand new, unique perfume whose composition perfectly captures the first rays of sun in the morning.
The unique and unmistakeable bottle evokes a gentle fresh breeze, a whiff of love brought on the wings of a white dove. It also expresses the magical essence of every sunrise.

About the brand Nina Ricci
The fashion designer Nina Ricci always expressed femininity, sophistication, and minimalism in her designs. Her haute couture fashion house was established in Paris in 1932 and Parisians have been wearing her fine creations ever since. In collaboration with her son, the designer soon started offering Nina Ricci fragrance which soon became an integral part of the French brand’s portfolio.
The company’s first perfume Nina Ricci Coeur Joie was introduced in 1946 and the second one, L’Air du Temps, has been popular since 1948. The essence contained in the famous bottle topped with a crystal dove is a symbol of love and freedom which has become an iconic fragrance of the brand. Its popularity cemented the international success of the fashion house and it continues to inspire all Nina Ricci designs and fragrances.
