L’Air du Temps by Nina Ricci, the splendor of a timeless fragrance in a box
L’Air du Temps is undoubtedly one of the most striking perfumes of the last century . It was developed in the aftermath of the Second World War and seems to have in it all the joie de vivre and the newfound freedom of the French. It has considerably changed the face of women’s perfumery and has survived the decades without ever taking a wrinkle. It is an enchanting elixir. L’Air du Temps is a marvelous allegory of peace, the bottle of which is rightly overhung by two doves. This legendary perfume has not finished making people talk about it and it is reinventing itself as such in a brand new box.
The floral and spicy heart of L’Air du Temps
L’Air du Temps is a classic yet refined juice. It is based on a short formula. Nevertheless, its perfect harmony has made it a timeless in women’s perfumery. L’Air du Temps is made up of barely thirty components. Its floral heart highlights the feminine breath of gardenia, jasmine and rose. These ingredients are refreshed by the presence of bergamot. Then, L’Air du Temps introduced an ingredient still unknown in its time: benzyl salicylate. It is to him that we owe the purity of this perfume, counterbalanced by a spicier accord. Iris and violet reinforce its powdery elegance. Finally, sandalwood and cedar round off its trail, still sublimated with amber and musk.
The Air du Temps box
L’Air du Temps comes in a yellow box , with a solar aura perfectly matched to the color of its juice. This time it is delivered to us in a 50 ml spray bottle and comes with L’Air du Temps body lotion as a gift.
