Nina Ricci’s first fragrance Coeur Joie, was introduced, just after the second world war, in 1946. The perfume was presented in a beautiful crystal flacon, with an ‘open’ heart, handmade by Lalique. It marked the beginning of an historic partnership between the two French Maison’s up to the present day.

Nina Ricci’s most famous fragrance L’Air du Temps, in it’s famous distinctive Lalique dove flacon, was launched in 1948. It is one of the timeless, oldest (and bestselling!) perfumes on the market.

Lalique L’Insoumis

lalique-l_insoumis-pour-homme-for-men

Luxury crystal and fragrance brand Lalique is launching a new masculine fragrance  L’Insoumis in September 2016, dedicated to the founder of the house Rene Lalique and his artistic spirit. The man who wears it is conceived as a charismatic, elegant and authentic individual who does not follow trends but creates them. He is a dreamer and a modern day adventurer.

The first thing you notice about Lalique new men’s fragrance, L’Insoumis, is the bottle. The contemporary Art Deco design of the Lalique L’Insoumis bottle is decorated with a relief of a fern, the motif that was first used on Lalique’s iconic Tourbillons vase from 1926. The fern symbolizes the free spirit that the fragrance is trying to convey. It’s what’s inside however, that is truly remarkable. Combining what some many would see as unconventional ingredients, L’Insoumis presents a very modern man at the heart of its history-steeped bottle.

Nina Ricci L'Air du Temp lalique

Laliques famous crystal bottle, two doves, a symbol of love and peace

This fine fragrance has delicate topnote blends of jasmine and gardenias nestled in basenotes of sandalwood and iris. I find this romantic scent that is well blended and wears long. May not be for everyone, but do not pass up a chance to at least try it out
