It's a wonderful stroll through Japanese gardens. A citrus accord where yuzu explodes at the top and evolves into guaiac wood, vetyver and patchouli. Excellent staying power for an initially fresh fragrance.

The fragrance's background 

Eau de Yuzu offers a wonderful stroll through sophisticated Japanese gardens. A woody base accord of patchouli, guaiac wood and vetiver structures the composition and retains the volatility of the citrus and watery notes, creating a fresh, powerful trail. 

Here is the olfactory description of Eau de Yuzu de Nicolaï

Yuzu, a Japanese citrus fruit, lends a fresh, lemony, sparkling top note. Its character is often energetic and invigorating. The spirit of lemon petitgrain adds a green, slightly bitter nuance, derived from the leaves and branches of the lemon tree.  The cut grass note can evoke green, herbaceous aromas, adding a fresh, natural dimension. 

Heart notes: 

Juniper berries can bring fragrant berry aromas, often combined with spicy, resinous qualities. Black pepper spirit of offers a spicy nuance, which can add warmth and depth. 

Base notes: 

Guaiac wood provides a woody note, often used for its rich, creamy character. Patchouli spirit of offers earthy, woody depth. Vetiver brings an earthy, sometimes smoky note, completing the fragrance's base. 


Overall sensation

Juniper berries and black pepper add spicy notes to the heart, while the base of guaiac wood, patchouli and vetiver provide an earthy, woody foundation to the fragrance. The result is a refreshing, energizing composition, perfect for lovers of citrus and spicy nuances.


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.
