It is born out of collaboration between perfumer Olivier Cresp and Vincent Lemains, the master chef of the famous Parisian patisserie Ladurée. The result is a fragrance with notes of lemon, rose, almond and raspberry, decanted into Nina Ricci‘s iconic apple-shaped bottle.
La Tentation de Nina smells like Nina macarons topped with raspberry jam, with lemon drops and rose flavor. The composition begins with citrusy notes of bergamot and goes into the heart of raspberry, almond, lemon and Bulgarian rose absolute, which are connected together in the macaron accord, softened by notes of Bourbon vanilla, white musk and sandalwood at its base.
The fragrance is available from January of 2014 as a limited edition.
