With L’Extase, Nina Ricci opens a new chapter, setting free a new feminine dream. A chapter that is both legitimate through its link to womanhood, and bold through its expression.

With this new fragrance, created by famous perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, Nina Ricci embraces the dream of a woman in tune with her most secret desires. A woman of her time, she asserts the right to experience pleasure with all her senses. The pleasure of being surprised, aroused, overwhelmed. A femininity filled with sensuality. Incandescent, free, determined. A woman’s erotic dream, an imaginary and carnal voyage to the core of her being, all the way to ecstasy: L’Extase.

Memorable and with a clear identity, this first Francis Kurkdjian creation for Nina Ricci is evocative of women’s desire. A carnal portrait, a flowering of the senses. Two accords, powerful and mysterious, chase and echo one another.

Barely Rose is built around a bouquet of white petals, highlighted by natural roses and structured with pink peppercorns, like a satin caress. Then Musky Shadow is revealed, intoxicating and arousing, with notes of benzoin Siam and Virginia cedar subtly caught up in a breath of musk and amber. L’Extase, an incandescently modest Eau de Parfum with a genuinely erotic signature.

Perpetuating Nina Ricci’s chic Parisian spirit, the bottle of L’Extase is modelled on a couture clutch, one of the House’s iconic accessories. Its mysterious glass envelope in shades of dark mauve, the gold detailing and delicate black satin ribbon with the signature plate all place L’Extase boldly in the line of the great Nina Ricci perfumes. The outer box wears a powdery pink texture, decorated with the signature plate and a black ribbon lined with gold. The black inside reveals the promise of L’Extase: “Liberate your fantasies”.

L’Extase Eau de Parfum Spray is available at select beauty counters in the UAE.
