The fragrance's background 

A veil of balmy amber, enriched with iris, overflowing with patchouli and musks for an enveloping sensation. Like the caress of cashmere on the skin. Its cheerful mandarin and pepper notes make it a very contemporary fragrance. 

Here is the olfactory description of Ambre Cashmere Intense by Nicolaï 

Top notes: 

Black pepper essence brings a spicy warmth from the very first moments, adding a pungent, vibrant dimension. Mandarin offers a bright, juicy citrus note, creating a fresh, fruity opening. Lemon, with its citric, sparkling character, completes the top notes with a pleasant vivacity. 

Heart notes: 

Iris butter brings a velvety, powdery dimension to the heart of the fragrance, adding a subtle elegance. Violet offers a delicate floral nuance, contributing to the complexity of the central bouquet. Essence of clove brings a warm, aromatic spice to the heart of the composition. 

Base notes: 

Vanilla absolute creates a suave, sweet base, bringing a bewitching sweetness. Labdanum absolute offers a rich, resinous amber note, contributing warm depth. Benzoin resinoid adds a balsamic, oriental touch, completing the base with a sensual nuance. 


Overall sensation 

Ambre Cashmere Intense by Nicolaï is a rich, enveloping composition that blends spicy, floral and oriental notes. Amber, accented by labdanum and benzoin in the base notes, creates a warm, seductive aura. Lively citrus and spice at the start evolve harmoniously into a delicate floral heart, while soft, creamy vanilla extends the feeling of comfort to the end. 


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.
