Parfums de Nicolai Musc Monoi ~ new fragrance

Parfums de Nicolaï Musc Monoï

French niche line Parfums de Nicolaï will launch Musc Monoï, a new musky floral summer fragrance, in June.

In order to celebrate the oncoming summer, Patricia de Nicolaï is launching Musc monoï, her new ‘Eau de Toilette’ which invites you to holidays.

‘For many years I have been in love by the famous Ambre Solaire oil’ explains Patricia. ‘I always wanted to create a fragrance from which I can use this wonderful smell, synonym of sunny beaches’ continues the perfumer who is celebrating this year the 25th anniversary of her brand. ‘A fragrance with a powerful sensuality that smells on your skin like a hot summer day was my main obsession!’

For Musc monoï, the amber note of Ambre solaire has been softened for a more modern musk facet. Combined with the benzyl salicylate molecule associated with ylang flower, Musc monoï is strengthened by jasmine, magnolia and neroli. The fresh and heavy marine scent of the calone, the sensuality of the coconut and the velvety of the sandalwood sign a perfect captivating fragrance. An addictive creation with a powerful long trail.

Additional notes include lemon and petitgrain.

Parfums de Nicolaï Musc Monoï will be available in 30 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette.

    Sounds lovely to me.

    To me, it sounded loved until calone was mentioned.

    • Robin says:

      Yes. Maybe it will be very light, I’m hoping…

  3. donanicola says:

    Love the smell of Ambre Solaire so will happily seek this out for a sniff but it does sound more than a little like Ensoleille Moi (calone!)

  4. Donald says:

    The calone is minimal. It’s the floral notes that dominate. It’s a light, fresh scent that would fit nicely into the L’Eau line from this house if it were just a bit more airy. The middle turns slightly creamy.

    As usual, Patricia de Nicolaï has blended together something lovely, though I wish the musc weren’t quite so soft. Musc doesn’t really belong in the name.
