Nuit Pourpre, the new olfactory chapter of L’Air du Temps by Nina Ricci
L’Air du Temps is a mythical perfume dating from 1948. It is a symbol of peace and has embodied the image of absolute femininity for more than 70 years now. This great classic of perfumery is a timeless one that has been enjoying a new lease of life in recent years. Thus, Nina Ricci enriches her Lumière Collection with L’Air du Temps.
In 2016, L’Air du Temps was thus expressed in three different facets called the Dawn , the Zénith and the Dusk . At the start of the year, L’Aurore perfume made its appearance. Dawn was an armful of flowers dominated by rose and carnation and delicately edged with irises. Zenith was a more sunny juice, made from jasmine, rose and sandalwood. Twilight, meanwhile, was intended to be darker and narcotic while retaining the warmth of ylang-ylang and vanilla. Continuing in this direction, Nina Ricci offers us this time a more nocturnal vision of L’Air du Temps. Focus on its new version called Nuit Pourpre.
The story of a cult perfume signed by Nina Ricci
L’Air du Temps is a perfume that was made after the Second World War. It is considered by many to be the very essence of love. Moreover, its fresh and limpid breath still moves millions of women today. Through this juice, Robert Ricci simply wanted to capture the spirit of his time and the joy of regained freedom. As a symbol of peace, he had also placed two doves on top of his bottle. L’Air du Temps is the scent of a rapidly changing Paris. He opens the door to dreams and has forged a faithful relationship with women.
The new floral sensuality of L’Air du Temps Nuit Pourpre
This time, L’Air du Temps plunges us into the heart of the night and is aimed at a new generation of women. Indeed, the current clients of Nina Ricci are now freed from any constraint and dare to let their feminine sensuality fully speak. It is therefore this new exuberance, always charged with elegance, that we find in the fragrance L’Air du Temps Nuit Pourpre.
Designed by perfumer Calice Becker, it brings together spicy, deep, floral and animal notes. It begins first with an opulent and powdery blend of jasmine and violet. Pink pepper, meanwhile, immediately tickles the start of this fragrance.
Then, L’Air du Temps Nuit Pourpre becomes more refined. The iris, one of the noblest flowers in perfumery, occupies the central place of this juice. It is associated with particularly sensual notes of leather. This effect then darkens in its wake. Finally, L’Air du Temps Nuit Pourpre ends with a trio of patchouli, cedar and styrax.
A more bewitching and mysterious bottle
To evoke this mysterious sensuality , the bottle of L’Air du Temps Nuit Pourpre has retained the silhouette of its predecessors while dressing this time in a darker and bewitching color. Its glass is now tinted with very elegant purple violet. The doves of yesteryear have given way to a bird with plumage that matches the rest of this bottle. This bottle plays on the contrast of chiaroscuro and brilliantly evokes the mysterious beauty of a queen of the night.
