Nina Soleil, the new delightful summer fragrance from Nina Ricci, and a good alternative to dessert

Nina Soleil, the delightful new fragrance from Nina Ricci in the iconic apple-shaped flacon celebrates optimism and sun. Following last year’s sweet and fruity Nina Extra Rouge, the newest fragrance cherishes creamy gardenia, making it gourmand and solar at the same time.

Without question: Sweet pieces from the bakery have an enormous happiness potential for all self-proclaimed Willy Wonkas of this world, and thus also the potential as a culinary beautifier, since positive feelings can lead to improved blood circulation, which in turn has a beneficial effect on the complexion.

On the other hand, and this is no secret either, sugar makes us look old pretty quickly when eating the delicacies mentioned above leads to a loss of control, if you know what I mean. And this is exactly where a fragrance novelty comes into play, which, thanks to the delicious formulation in the truest sense of the word, offers itself as a calorie-free alternative during a temporary sugar embargo and by the way also boosts the anticipation of the summer.

Created by Olivier Cresp and Amandine Clerc Marie, the new and enticing limited edition fragrance from Nina Ricci, the Eau de Toilette Nina Soleil celebrates an oh-so French guilty pleasure: Chantilly cream. This lightly sweetened whipped cream delicately imbues the fragrance with a velvety, gourmand feel. Flaunting light, gourmand notes, this citrusy floral fragrance is a celebration of spontaneity and ‘joie de vivre’.

Top notes: mandarin, bergamot
Middle notes: Chantilly cream, gardenia
Base notes: vanilla, cedarwood

The composition starts luminous and bright. The zingy mandarin and bergamot accentuate its light freshness, whilst the luminous and powdery gardenia underscores its sweetness. Its charm is positively magnetic, particularly since a soft cedarwood and a decidedly appetising vanilla complete this infusion of delights.

Nina Ricci’s iconic apple-shaped flacon arrives in sunny and optimistic yellow shade, seemingly having soaked up an abundance of summer rays. Its glossy finish instantly evokes an irresistible tangy sugar glaze.

Yellow and white stripes emerge where the apple’s fleshy contours appear to have been crunched; a design that also adorns the box. These charming stripes are evocative of the parasol canvases that bedeck the shores of seaside towns each summer.

Nina Soleil is a really nice summer fragrance that makes it easy for our inner WIlly Wonkas to find a healthy balance between ‘treat yourself’ and ‘now you should take a break’ in the best mood.

Nina Soleil is available as a limited edition 50ml Eau de Toilette at selected stores worldwide and at the French Maison’s official website starting mid-January 2022. Come into the beautiful world of Nina Ricci.

An intense version of the spirit of Nina Rouge… More assertive, bolder, the new Nina Extra Rouge fragrance by Nina Ricci is not just gourmand: it is EXTRA-gourmand. Rarely has a fragrance delved so deeply into gourmand tones than Nina Extra Rouge.

For Nina Extra Rouge, she appears Extra mischievous, Extra upbeat, Extra daring. Dressed in a riot of Nina Ricci red from Rushemy Botter and Lisa Herrebrugh, she has endless fun with the giant apple-shaped flacon, an XXL symbol of jubilance, freedom and playfulness… At Nina Ricci, extravagance unmistakably rhymes with elegance. That’s life in Extra Rouge!”

Described as an intensely gourmand, ambery, and floral fragrance, Nina Extra Rouge opens with a green top note of black currant that accentuates the sour freshness of raspberry and bittersweet grapefruit. Middle notes blend the scent of rosebuds with slightly spicy tea, while the base features sweet notes of vanilla and praline.

This time the iconic apple-shaped flacon of Nina Ricci is dressed from head to toe in a velvety matte red. A daring look, in tune with the assertive character of the fragrance. Dutch model Estella Boersma is the face of the advertising campaign.
