La Tentation de Nina is a new limited edition of the original Nina fragrance from 2006. It is born out of collaboration between perfumer Olivier Cresp and Vincent Lemains, the master chef of the famous Parisian patisserie Ladurée. The two men had worked for a long time to develop a fragrance that makes you want to eat it. Together with the fragrance, the new line of Ladurée macarons named Nina is also presented..

This edition represents a combination of the senses of taste and smell. However, it is announced as a more "mature" phase in the development of the former Nina flankers. In that regard, the fragrance is less sweet, though it is devoted to delicious macarons.

La Tentation de Nina is a fresh floral-fruity and gourmand fragrance. It smells like Nina macarons topped with raspberry jam, with lemon drops and rose flavor. The composition begins with citrusy notes of bergamot and goes into the heart of raspberry, almond, lemon and Bulgarian rose absolute, which are connected together in the macaron accord, softened by notes of Bourbon vanilla ,white musk and sandalwood at its base.

Top notes: bergamot
Heart: Nina macaron (raspberry, almond, Bulgarian rose, lemon)
Base: vanilla, sandalwood, musk


The fragrance is available from January of 2014 as a limited edition.

Macaroons, eh?
Hmmmmmmm......
okay, okay, I'll try it.

It says more "mature", so I'm guessing this will smell like perfume and not vanilla cookie juice. Not big on gourmands, so this is a real chance I'd be taking.
I only know Nina from L'air du Temps, so I am hoping it will be just as harmonious.

This one really is a temptation to me.. beautiful bottle, outrageously yummy composition, lovely ad, great Brand. Long live gourmand fragrances!

(Too bad I've just bought a new grey coat, fuchsia looks good too expecially if paired with a snowy landscape :D)

An ode to Raspberries - it is spring/summer time in Australia and I can't think of anything more delicious...love the first apple one but looking forward to savouring/devouring the new one! I will have to watch where I am walking because I will be so busy sniffing my wrist I could break my neck!! Definitely going on my Christmas List.

Totally want to try this! It might have to be a blind buy as we don't get many of the limited editions in Australia (boo!). Shame I am not in Europe anymore, would have loved to try the macaroons!

Those cookies look DEVINE. I will 100% be trying the frag, the bottle is gorge and the fume sounds fantastic, but the real question is where can I get the macaroons. Seriously.

Looking at the ad campaign brings to mind Little Red Ridinghood making her way through the forest for her rendezvous with the big bad wolf. Too, the beautiful bitten apple shaped flacon carried in the hand of the model is reminiscent of the temptation of Eve, who already having bitten into the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge, makes her way through the Garden of Eden in search of Adam.

Two themes which are featured as being evocative of the blending of fruits, nuts, florals and tempting French confections in the mist of a perfume.

Can't wait to test this one.

Love macaroons but generally don't want to smell like one - I may pass on this particular flanker. Love the pink coat tho' - as usual the marketing is clever.

Available from January 2014?
Surely they could release a little early in time for the Christmas rush, this would be a great gift for those who already collect each year's Nina apple.
Tsk tsk marketing team...

WOW what a celebration for senses. Nina is spoiling us. Visually - gold on the macarons and on the pretty bottle, Taste - sweetness of the macarons, Smell - the perfume itself. Bravo Nina!

Sounds like a flanker that Nina Ricci has actually invested proper r&d and marketing towards. Much more desirable and contemporary than many recent releases of theirs.

I love Nina Ricci perfumes and the notes on this new one sound really amazing. The bottle looks beautiful as well. If it is on sale before Christmas 2013 I hope that Santa will bring me a bottle of this. Looking forward to trying it out.
