Nina Ricci L'air Du Temps
Top notes: carnation, Brazilian rosewood and peach, neroli, bergamot
I disliked this scent for such a long time, despite testing it, and wanting to enjoy it, I believed it smelled headachy and shrill and the classic tried.
I would like to only say, that whatever yellowish water these days is being churned out by them really isn't the same L'Air du Temps, the first scent.
What L'Air du Temps should be is a thick, vibrant peppery carnation aroma with
a wholesome dose of gardenia, and never actually all that "visionary" despite the name.
What I did come across that is on-line (and am happy with,) is a classic Parfum spray tester.
That supplies a huge spray of the classic vintage perfume without all of the packaging.
Has been my experince with L'Air, if you're able to wrestle the first scent from reformulations and each of the following branding, it's utter deliciousness.
