NicolaÏ : Parfumeur-Créateur
Patricia de Nicolai, the Founder and Master perfumer of NICOLAÏ: Parfumeur-Créateur who has fragrance in her blood. The grand-daughter of Pierre-François-Pascal Guerlain, she was trained by Jean-Paul Guerlain and worked extensively in the corporate fragrance world before realizing her dream – a small, family-owned company where she could truly express her artistry in her scent creations, without having to deal with a committee. Her line is the equivalent of fashion’s haute couture, where the designer’s vision is allowed to express itself freely, without the restrictions of mass marketing. Her exquisite sense of composition is her hallmark. Her fragrances, made only with the finest materials, are full of subtlety and nuance and seamless transitions as they develop on the skin. Delicate and complex, they have earned her unanimous respect in the small world of French perfumery. She was the first woman to be awarded the prize of best international perfumer from the French Society of Perfumers.
