The fragrance's background 

Amber Oud is one of those fragrances known as "French-Oriental", a new genre combining the emblematic accords of two iconic perfumeries. The mythical amber, which combines labdanum and vanilla, is enriched with resins and burning spices to meet the bold volutes of oud wood. Top notes of sagebrush and lavender contrast with this warm, sensual scent. 

Here is the olfactory description of Amber Oud Intense by Nicolaï 

Top notes: 

Lavender essence brings a fresh, aromatic herbaceous note to the top, introducing a clean, soothing dimension. Mugwort essence can add herbaceous nuances, often used to provide a fresh, slightly bitter touch. 

Heart notes: 

The heart of the fragrance is dominated by oud, a rich, precious woody note, often combined with earthy, smoky and animalic aromas.  Atlas cedar offers a woody note, complementing and reinforcing the woody presence in the heart. Saffron adds a warm, spicy nuance to the heart, creating a complex depth. 

Base notes: 

Labdanum absolute offers an ambery, resinous note, contributing to the warmth and depth of the base. Musk can bring a sensual sweetness to the base of the fragrance. Amber completes the base with warm, sweet, oriental accords, creating a deep, captivating olfactory signature. 


Overall sensation 

Amber Oud is a fragrance that combines the richness of oud with woody, spicy and amber nuances. Lavender and mugwort in the top note add a refreshing touch, before plunging into a resolutely oriental heart with oud, Atlas cedar and saffron. The base, with its labdanum, musk and amber, offers a warm, lingering conclusion, making Amber Oud a luxurious, bewitching olfactory experience. 


 A direct descendant of Pierre-François-Pascal Guerlain, founder of the house of Guerlain, which was bought by a luxury group in 1994, Patricia de Nicolaï and her husband Jean-Louis Michau created their own perfume brand. Precisely in November 1989, Patricia Nicolaï, one of the first female nose-creators, launched her own business. Her first boutique opened in Paris, the birthplace of perfumes and fine fragrances.  These are entirely created by Patricia de Nicolaï, in a laboratory visible to visitors to the boutique. It was Patricia's wish to show what goes on behind the scenes, how luxury is created and brought to life.

Her love of the profession dates back to the '81s, when she graduated from ISIPCA in Versailles (Institut Supérieur International du Parfum de la Cosmétique et de l'Aromatique Alimentaire). She was also elected President of OSMOTHEQUE, the International Perfume Museum and Conservatory located in Versailles, on the campus of the famous ISIPCA perfume school.  Among her very first fragrances was New-York, the designer's signature scent, considered one of the best olfactory creations in history.

In 2007, she was elevated by the French President to the rank of Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur as the woman perfumer who created her own perfume house.

In June 2015 Patricia received the OLFACTORAMA ENTHOUSIASME" award for her fragrance New York Intense, the eau de parfum version. In 1997 Patricia NICOLAÏ released her first Eau fraîche "Eau d'été", a fresh floral fragrance for men and women. Alongside the perfume collection, Patricia was one of the first to create high quality olfactory background fragrances. Candles, sprays and scented bamboo, including Maharadjah, the brand's iconic home fragrance. To celebrate the brand's 30th anniversary, Nicolaï creates a new fragrance, Baïkal Leather Intense.

The brand's emblematic fragrances are Patchouli Intense and Fig Tea for perfumes and Maharadjah for home backgrounds. Let yourself be seduced by these three unique fragrances.

THE LUXURY: All fragrances are hand-sealed with a black wax that forms a beautiful imprint with the initials PN (Patricia de Nicolaï). They also have a pretty ribbon delicately tied around the box. Each perfume comes in its own black velvet case.
