Nina Ricci has something new for you all and it's called, FANTASY!

There, it’s me. I’m in this forest, which is like a cartoon set. 
It’s here and now, yet the light is so transparent 
and the atmosphere so airy that it could be a dream. 
So how to sing about it? 
A dream is a dream/A dream is a dream. 
There, I’m in a story, dressed kawaii style, with a mini-dress 
and pink stilettos, a diaphanous complexion and a baby-doll’s eyes. 
I’m in a screenshot, a fairy-tale landscape where time has been suspended. 
A dream is a dream/A dream is a dream. 
There, I’m in this song, a chorus on everyone’s lips both on stage 
and backstage, a guitar riff and rock poetry, vocal swirls and vintage synthesizers. 
I’m the fairy-tale of an unending concert, 
a fantasy erupting from reveries, a melody of a fragrance. 
I’m Nina Fantasy. 

This project is a marriage between the 
“Kawaii” inspiration coming from Japan, 
the sophisticated universe of Nina Ricci 
and the fairy tale world of Nina.  
Modern-Day Princess 
We wanted to imagine an alternative and 
more conceptual limited edition inspired 
by this trend. It is also an opportunity to 
strengthen the collaboration between 
Nina Ricci and Florrie in a surprising way.  
Florrie embodies perfectly the 
modern-day princess: impertinent, 
sensual and ultra-feminine. She 
perpetuates the sophisticated and 
natural charm of Nina Ricci 
femininity, with a sparkle of 
originality and mischievousness.  

Prices and details 
Nina Fantasy (a limited edition fragrance ) is 
available in 50ml bottles- Php 3,910 
Available in all leading Department Stores 

Nina Fantasy is exclusively distributed by Prestige 
Brands Philippines, Inc.
