Peace and freedom: Nina Ricci L’Air du Temps Parfum by Lalique

L’air du Temps  was created in 1949, when Nina Ricci’s son Robert sought to expand the house’s business into perfumery after their first succesful fragrance, Coeur Joie . Sinds then a true golden classic, L’air du Temps is a rare creation that transends the changes of time. Yes this is an old fragrance, but it is one that is truely ageless!! In its original production, the perfume was contained in a bottle designed by Rene 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

In the famous Lalique bottle it’s availble in several sizes: 7,5ml 15m and 29ml as perfume, and 1250ml as Eau de Toilette. Over the years, many (precious) limited editions appeared, designed by Lalique, and are now true collectors items.

Nina Ricci L’Air Du Temps, known for its famous dove topper, its representation of peace. The new L’Air Du Temp crystal bottle has been made in a series of 74 pieces together with French lifestyle brand and crystal-maker Lalique and Lognon Workshop. The original L’Air Du Temps, also by Lalique, was first launched in 1948.

Mothersday: Nina Ricci ‘Coeur-Joie’ by Lalique

Coeur-Joie is a feminine perfume by Nina Ricci. The scent was launched in 1946 and the fragrance was created by perfumer Germaine Cellier. The bottle was designed by Marc Lalique.


Nina Ricci Coeur-Joie by Lalique

Launged in 1946, but still when people see the signed Lalique handmade crystal bottle for the first time… you hear a lot of Ohhhhh’s. A bottle in the shape of a heart, that looks great from every corner you look at it, designed by Marc Lalique. A true timeless classic, and for many people in the business the most romantic bottle ever designed. So that makes it a great present for mothersday (or weddings, birthdays etc)! Even if you don’t want to open it! It’s a precious item on every dressing table. Such a pitty it’s very hard to get. It’s still in production, but it’s what they call a Boutique fragrance, so you can find it in the Nina Ricci Boutiques and in some vèry selected stores.  It’s not only a perfume, it’s a piece of art, like many Lalique perfume bottles.

Coeur-Joie (1946)

Nina Ricci Coeur-Joie by Lalique

This scent is just perfect in my eyes, I own 3 vintage crystal bottles, and one new ‘expensive’ reissued version bottle. The lovely round bottles by Lalique look good in my Lalique collection, and I am lucky to own so much of this very rare and hard to find scent so I sometimes just open one of the bottles to smell what I think is a perfect perfume…

A precious item that goes from mother to daughter (or grandson…. when he is working in cosmetics…lol).
