The online Session with Brand Ambassador of NICOLAÏ Fragrances, Damien Flynn, was very informative and full of perfume history. This session took place within the framework of our Meeting with Perfumers mini-series.
Damien Flynn, who joined NICOLAÏ in 2012 and currently oversees the training section and represents the brand everywhere in the world, started the session with the story of brand founder Patricia de Nicolaï. Being from a family of perfumers, Patricia had a challenging life in finding her path, since during that time being a woman perfumer was something extraordinary and unusual. But her talent and dedication were unstoppable and in 1989 Patricia de Nicolaï and her husband Jean-Louis Michau founded NICOLAÏ house.
From the beginning, the house of NICOLAÏ has taken devotion to top quality and complete creative freedom as its credo, maintaining a distinguished elegance that never bows to the diktats of marketing. Today, NICOLAÏ is one of the jewels of the independent French perfume industry, whose products are exported around the world.
Each participant of the sessions received a discovery box with 12 samples of NICOLAÏ perfumes. Incense Oud, Ambre Cashmere Intense, Baïkal Leather Intense, Cuir Cuba Intense, Musc Intense, Number One Intense, New York Intense, Patchouli Intense, Cap Neroli, Fig-Tea, Rose Pivoine, and L’eaumiXte are NICOLAÏ renowned and celebrated fragrances.
Damien presented each product and told the history of creation and development. Each fragrance has its own history and unique selection of ingredients.
