Nicolaï is launching a new perfume for Valentine's Day 2017, a rose soliflore baptized Rose Royale, named after the Palais-Royal garden in Paris...
Perfumer Patricia de Nicolaï was inspired by the quiet atmosphere of a garden which is a retreat from the din of the city, and by the roses it shelters. The inner courtyard garden is located by her new lab rue Montpensier. She reportedly rediscovered it in the springtime,
"After months of work and an infinite number of trials, here is Rose Royale. It is a natural, fresh and delicately fruity rose, as if you were smelling it at the end of its stem. Dressed with coriander and ambrette, the rosy heart of the perfume unfolds voluptuously. Without weighing anything down, like the Palais-Royal, a row of woodsy notes frames this heart to give it allure and sillage." (Editor's translation).
"Après des mois de travail et un nombre infini d'essais, voici Rose Royale. Une rose naturelle, fraîche, délicatement fruitée comme on la sent au bout de sa tige. Habillé de coriandre et d'ambrette, le cœur rosé du parfum s'épanouit avec volupté. Sans rien alourdir, à l'image du Palais-Royal, une rangée de notes boisées encadre ce cœur pour lui donner allure et sillage »"
The eau de toilette opens on head notes of cassis bud absolute, passion fruit and essence of bergamot. The heart features and absolute and essence of Turkish rose, coriander essence and ambrette seed essence. The base is anchored by immortelle absolute, sandalwood essence, gaïac wood essence and musk.
The boutique launch is set for February 14th, on Valentine's Day.
