The fragrance's background 

"The fusion of vanilla and Tonka bean, combined with incense and cinnamon, reveals all the bewitching sweetness of the Orient. A mystical, bewitching fragrance. Vanille Tonka, an enchanting creation by Maison Nicolai, takes us on a sensory voyage of the senses, where rich oriental notes merge with contemporary elegance. 

Here is the olfactory description of Vanille Tonka de Nicolaï 

Piquant citrus burst:

The fragrance begins with a citrus burst of lemon and mandarin essence, offering a fresh, sparkling opening. Black pepper adds a spicy touch, creating a balance between citrus luminosity and spicy warmth. 

Mystic Incense and Spicy Blossom:

At the heart of Vanille Tonka, incense essence creates a deep, mystical background. Orange blossom absolute brings a delicate bloom, while carnation offers spicy, vibrant nuances, adding aromatic complexity to the composition. 

Sensual Gourmandise and Smoked Tobacco:

The fragrance base reveals a sensual, gourmand symphony. Vanilla absolute offers an enveloping sweetness, while tonka bean absolute adds warm, almondy nuances. Tobacco leaf absolute adds smoky depth, creating a seductive olfactory imprint. 


Overall sensation 

Vanille Tonka by Nicolai embodies a masterful fusion between the oriental traditions of vanilla and incense, and the modern elegance of fresh, spicy notes. This fragrance captures the essence of an olfactory journey that evokes both comforting gourmandise and contemporary sophistication. 


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.
