8.05 am – Dawn suspended there, for a second, prior to the glory of the sun
Just before daybreak, in the still freshness of the early morning, as a promise of a new day of limpid clarity, L’Aurore metamorphoses into a deliciously tender, pink bottle in motion. It is a perfume of radiant freshness. The flight of two doves with quivering feathers over a gleaming horizon.
Two doves with pink feathers deck the nude glass bottle of L’Aurore. As for L’Aube and Le Crépuscule, they have been produced by Maison Lemarié, one of the last craft feather-makers in the world, which has been working with the most prestigious fashion designers since 1880. The perfume adopts one of haute couture’s emblematic codes, the feather, now set in the story of L’Air du Temps and its legendary bottle.
For L’Aurore, the Master Perfumer Calice Becker has composed a landscape in which morning dew melts into the emerging light. In this hazy atmosphere, the acidic outreach of grapefruit, scintillating with a few pink pepper corns, lingers over the barely opened buds of orange blossom. The luminous aura of a fig tree melts into the velvety caresses of Damask roses. In a burst of radiant purity, this impromptu bouquet envelops itself in the silvery freshness of moss and driftwood.
Nina Ricci L'Air du Temps L'Aurore is available in 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
