To celebrate the 2011 winter Holidays, Nina by Nina Ricci will be declined in a new version of the original scent from 2006 in a Collector Edition called Nina Snow Princess...
For the occasion, the apple-shaped flacon is dressed in a scintillating white mother-of pearl-coat contrasted with gold. Madame Ricci called white "The color of elegance." The perfume also undergoes a discreet makeover to be in tune with the warm gourmand accents of the festive end-of-year season.
Perfumer Olivier Cresp of Firmenich revisited the original juice he co-created with colleague Jacques Cavallier. Nina Snow Princess becomes nuttier with an added note of roasted praline. This is the man who created Angel by Thierry Mugler, which happens to be inspired by the smells of a Christmas open-air market in Alsace, so we can all see where this might present affinities with the spirit of Angel.
The fragrance features notes of Calabrian lemon, Caipirinha lime, caramel apple, vanilla infusion, praline, apple tree wood, cotton musk and white cedar wood.
The 80 ml Eau de Toilette is priced at 63€. It will launch in France on October 15, 2011.
