Nina Ricci x Laduree
Laduree have surprised fanatics with their recent collaboration with Nina Ricci in creating a fragrance which is set to be released in January 2014.
Over several months, professional nose Olivier Cresp, the creator of the Nina fragrance line, worked hand in hand with Vincent Lemains, head pastry chef at Ladurée, to create a perfect mirror harmony between the eau de toilette and its dedicated macaron.
This fruity floral essence combines Italian bergamot and grapefruit with Bourbon vanilla, white musk and sandalwood, complemented by a macaron accord, characterized by raspberry, almond, lemon and Bulgarian rose absolute notes. The latter accord is also found in the flavors of the matching Ladurée macaron, which also bears the name “La Tentation de Nina.”
The Nina Ricci eau de toilette will be available from January 20 in select perfume shops (prices start at €58 for 50mL); the matching macarons will be available at Ladurée’s boutiques worldwide.
