The fragrance's background 

The leathery tone of Baïkal Leather Intense is primarily shaped by the combination of two dry woody notes: spirit of guaiac wood and spirit of smoked pine. This robust tandem is highlighted by a lively opening of yuzu, pepper and saffron, while the aromatic nuance of crepe mint completes the top note. The floral heart, composed of rose and violet, envelops the leather, softened by a base of iris butter, Tonka beans and white musk. 

Here is the olfactory description of Baïkal Leather Intense by Nicolaï 

Energetic and Spicy Radiance:

The fragrance opens with a burst of energy with the spirit of yuzu, a zesty, invigorating citrus note. Black pepper adds a spicy touch, while saffron, with its rich, oriental accents, creates a warm, intriguing introduction. 

Elegant leather and spicy blossom:

At the heart of Baïkal Intense, a leather accord unfolds, bringing a deep, bewitching elegance. Violet and rose offer a delicate, spicy bloom, while iris butter adds a creamy, velvety note, creating a fascinating contrast. 

Warm, enveloping trail:

The fragrance base reveals a rich, enveloping blend. The spirit of guaiac wood offers woody depth, tonka bean adds sweet warmth, and musk creates a sensual trail that lingers deliciously on the skin. 


Overall sensation 

Baïkal Leather Intense by Nicolai embodies an exceptional olfactory escape, where contrasts and harmonies unite to create a unique olfactory symphony. This intense, sophisticated fragrance is an invitation to explore the fragrant horizons of contemporary elegance.


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.
