Once again Nina Ricci teamed up with Lalique for a reedition of the L’Air Du Temps, perfume which was created in 1948. Two famous French brands already cooperated for 60th anniversary of this fragrance in 2008. For this year, French lifestyle brand and crystal-maker adorned the topper’s signature crystal doves with pure gold. The updated L’Air Du Temp bottle has been made in a series of 74 pieces, each numbered and engraved by hand.
The scent itself featured the notes of jasmine, gardenia and spicy carnation and pink pepper.
In addition to releasing a limited-edition bottle design, Nina Ricci has also created a special coffret to encase the bottle, as the house did in 1951. On social media, Nina Ricci has shared a 1950s advertisement of the original with the 2015 edition side-by-side to underscore the connection.
To show the craftsmanship, Nina Ricci included a 90-second video on its Web site where the viewer watches the creation of both the yellow coffret, or cage, and the Lalique-made decanter for L’Air Du Temp.
