For the second limited edition of JEANNE LANVIN, the fragrance ode to the House’s founder, Alber Elbaz has chosen to embody the feather’s sensuality in a  couture fragrance symbolising delicateness, femininity and gaiety. JEANNE LANVIN LA PLUME is a new timeless and luxurious olfactory opus whose delicious fragrance trail resonates with exceptional elegance. Composed by Anne Flipo, its short, lightweight formula offers a variation based on notes of musk and berries, borrowed from the original score of JEANNE LANVIN. However, an unsettling second skin trail, developed from the deliciously sweet tones of Apricot and Pear Nectar, appears in the top notes, and not until the middle notes does the original floral signature unfurl its poetry, blending the subtle harmony of Freesia with a burst of crystallised Rose petals, and the juicy sparkling notes of Orange. Musk and Sandalwood offer a voluptuous, milky base, which defines this velvety fragrance.

Rici Rici  is the latest fragrance from Nina Ricci; it is a fresh, floral, sensual perfume created for the modern urban heroine. Ricci Ricci is for women who are positive, confident, lively and fun. Its central ingredient is belle de nuit, an unusual flower that opens in the afternoon and remains in bloom throughout the night.
