AN ODE TO FEMININITY
With L’Extase, Nina Ricci opened a new chapter in 2015, setting free a new feminine dream. A chapter that is both legitimate through its link to woman- hood, and bold through its expression.
With this new creation, Nina Ricci embraces the dream of a woman in tune with her most secret desires. A woman of her time, she asserts the right to experience pleasure with all her senses. The pleasure of being surprised, aroused, overwhelmed.
A woman’s erotic dream, an imaginary and carnal voyage to the core of her being, all the way to ecstasy: L’Extase.
A MODERN FAIRY TALE
Irresistible: the embodiment of the Parisian spirit. A new world filled with poetry, magic and burgeoning femininity. Charming, ever the dreamer, Nina is a modern-day princess secretly harboring a sweet desire. Imbued with romanticism, she dreamed of an all-new fragrance, a dazzling concentrate of seductive power. The result is sparkling sweet floral with a hint of toffee apple, a tempting confection inspired by the history of the House of Nina Ricci.
Some years later, a new interpretation was concocted — a love potion: Nina L'Elixir. This latter-day princess cultivates Nina's sophisticated, natural femininity in a musical tale brimming with fantasy and imagination. Then in 2013 the brand opened a new episode with Nina L’Eau — a young woman in search of herself, consciously flirting with magic and the unexpected.
AN ODE TO A PRESTIGIOUS HERITAGE
Reflecting the couturier spirit of perfumery, Nina Ricci's five iconic fragrances have been celebrating the women of their time for more than 60 years. And Lalique has been a close partner in this story from the beginning. For his very first fragrance in 1946, Coeur-Joie, Robert Ricci called upon the expertise of Marc Lalique and his family's crystal works. In 1951, their shared vision of the role and importance of the fragrance bottle culminated with the design for L'Air du Temps, honored in 1999 as Bottle of the Century.
Born of that same creative spirit, the fragrances of the Prestige Collection by Nina Ricci are veritable works of art. Each bottle is crafted by artisans using traditional crystal-making techniques and undergoes more than a dozen finishing touches, all done by hand. These are genuine objets d'art whose excellence is matched only by the precious elixirs inside.
A rhapsody in crystal.
Prestige Collection comprises Nina Ricci's iconic fragrances: Coeur-Joie (1946), L'Air du Temps (1948), Fille d'Eve (1952), Capricci (1961) and Farouche (1974)
