Since its debut in 1932, French fashion house Nina Ricci has been synonymous with feminine charm. How else can we explain (and by that we mean the collective we for all women) our 73-year-and-counting love affair with it’s airy and elegantly classic, floral eau L’Air du Temps? Recently though, we’ve been wearing something new. An elixir that’s a little more pink, is a touch sweeter and has just the right amount of pretty.
We’re spritzing the brand’s new eau de toilette Nina Rose Garden and loving it.
With its fresh, sunny notes of grass and pear, the perfume brightens our mood and fuels us with energy the moment it’s tiny droplets land on our skin. Soon after, its delicate and sweet floral bouquet of orange blossoms and neroli blooms wafts forward, putting a smile on our face before being merged into a soft and warm blend of musk with vanilla for a final, intimate touch. The perfume’s overall effect is uplifting, joyful and, of course, utterly charming.
It’s also very pink, which we adore.
Captured in a small, glossy, opaline-pink and apple-shaped glass bottle, Nina Rose Garden is as whimsical as it is pretty. Tied with an oversized pink, Vichy-print ribbon around it’s classic, round topper, the design evokes the timeless French elegance the brand is renowned for. And we (collectively, of course) couldn’t be happier.
