Nicolai Paris

L'Eau Chic

eau de toilette


An elegant light-spicy scent, sparkling and radiant.

Inspired by the pleasant smell of soap mixed with the essence of geranium combined with other ingredients gives this flower a softer glow while remaining its potent self. 

Quote Patricia Nicolai: "Un peu de fraîcheur dans un monde si chaud! Avec son accord géranium, menthe, lavande, l'Eau Chic est un geste d'élégance : une fragrance mixte facile à porter, identifiable, d'une bonne tenue.
Ayant toujours aimé l'odeur des gros savons géranium qui trônaient dans la salle de bain de mes parents, mon rêve était d'utiliser l'essence de géranium comme le pivot de ma composition. C'est une essence délicieuse mais dont il faut savoir dompter l'aspect quelque peu râpeux et piquant. Le challenge: l'adoucir sans l'affaiblir, l'habiller sans l'écraser, l'originaliser sans en déguiser la note. Ainsi, les essences de menthe crépue et poivrée associées à la lavande apportent une délicate fraîcheur au géranium Bourbon. Le santal, la camomille romaine et l'iris arrondissent la fragrance qui est légèrement épicée par le clou de girofle et le piment. Un cocktail de muscs blancs renforce la note et lui permet de durer, durer, durer - le temps de tout un été."

my tea and my perfume

earl gray tea (with bergamot) has been my favorite for years and when I first visited Nicolai in Paris I found Chic, which later turned out to be with bergamot. Delicious! Large bottle for the home, the small one for my handbag.

L' eau chic

I encountered this fragrance years ago and it still fascinate me, bright and summery in the beginning, earthy at the end. I always come back to this scent and often alternate it with other floral, flowery scents.
