Description

There’s some grease-pencil and powder as it fades that feels, for lack of a better analogy, theatrical. If you do not update your preferences, we will assume that you are happy to receive amazing offers and news. Then you get such an old floral scent, turn up the heating and you imagine yourself in the nursing home, among all the older sweet ladies. it matches the yellow pictured box and bottle, though the bottle i tested hasnt got all the other writing on it.

When I was growing up, we had a small bottle of l'air du Temps on the vanity counter where my sisters and I would do our hair and makeup in the mornings. It's quite an honor to have this in my collection, the cap is the best thing ever, it's the typical case of real, raw and living history in art. It's clear, powdery, green, without sweetness but not sour, bright, powdery, aquatic with a peek-a-boo quality, woodsy, and long-lasting.

admittedly a rather washed out carnation, more sweet than pungent and aggressive, surrounded by an equally demure clove. I'm not scared of aldehydes or carnation (Gloria Vanderbilt is among my favorite fragrances) but this one is more a loud floral than a soft, melty floral like GV. I know that most people would consider "reminds me of grandmothers" as a negative, but this scent is SO comforting and evocative that I don't care if people think I smell like an old lady or if it's too mature for an early-twenties woman. I wore this for the first time during the spring, the aldehydes were really apparent in cool, sunny spring weather. The fragrance blends into the personality of each woman to bring out her sensual charm and refinement.

I was really hoping to douse myself in this beauty, but the modern edt and edp smells like pet shampoo. Named “Perfume Bottle of the Century” in 2000 in tribute to its design, the smooth curves and flowing twists of the L’Air du Temps bottle are iconic.It's far too floral for my taste, but if 80s florals or soapy scents are your jam, you might just love this! My EDP actually wears loud for a few hours if I apply enough, and lasts about six hours before fading into a floral soap skin scent.

a perfume "stew" in which there is so damn much going on it all blends together with not a lot of distinction . Symbolising love, elegance and freedom, Nina Ricci L'Air du Temps Eau de Parfum was developed in 1948 after the World War II, and remains one of the greatest fragrance creations today. Vintage L'air du Temps edt spray in the fluted cylindrical bottle with the gold cap: Because this was a vintage formula, the top notes had gone way off and the opening florals were dank and musty at first spray, and the aldehydes were sour, to say the least. The top notes of L’Air du Temps Eau de Parfum reveal the luminous freshness of bergamot from Italy combined with the clove accents of pink carnation, creating the fragrance’s unique spicy-floral signature. I read so many reviews some said it is so unique that as a unique scent lover i might love it but i sure didn't.Some of the other perfumes' top notes had gone, but this still smells like what the modern version of L'Air du Temps wishes it smelled like. My Sweet Auntie, who just passed away almost 3 weeks ago, wore this as her signature scent--along with Prince Matchabelli's Wind Song.
