How very tempting… Nina Ricca and Laduree, a match made in heaven

I was wowed at the launch of Nina Ricci‘s launch of her new fragrance last week.The Spring scent, La Tentation de Nina, available from 27 January, sees Nina Ricci collaborate with Ladurée, the Parisian masters of the delectable macaroon.


The limited edition fragrance, creation of master perfumer Olivier Cresp, is unsurprisingly sweet. But it doesn’t stop there, it has hidden depths in its fruity, floral notes. Italian bergamot, zest of grapefruit, raspberries, almonds and Bulgarian rose reflect the sweetness of the macaroon, while vanilla, white musk and sandalwood give it a heady sensuality.

There was no better place for the launch, of course, than at Covent Garden’s candy-coloured Ladurée boutique. Here we were treated to pink macaroons dipped in gold leaf, all in a scented tea room.

In fact, the macaroons, filled with raspberry jam and flavoured with lemon and rose (which are available in the same popping-pink packaging, are part of the La Tentation de Nina range, having been devised by Laduree’s pastry chef. To complete the line up comes a darling scented candle. Macaroons and perfume – both by Parisian masters in their field – a match made in heaven.
