Clean, fresh with a splash of salty surf: Aquatic perfumes…
“On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…two turtle doves.”
Make that a bottle of Nina Ricci L’Air du Temps perfume.
Just look at those doves! This classic, spicy floral Parisian spritz with its signature top notes of gardenia and carnation, heart of jasmine and rose, and sandalwood and orris base was created back in 1948. The L’Air du Temps bottle’s iconic embracing doves were—and still are—a timeless symbol of peace, freedom and purity. (And who doesn’t want more of those essences today?)
Inspired by our 12 Days of Christmas lyrics, we recommend gifting a bottle of this to your classics-loving friend, mother or mother-in-law this holiday season. Your giftee will know you appreciate her refinement and elegant taste.
