Parfums de Nicolai - Week-End in Normandy Eau de Toilette - 30 ml
Created in 2010.
Notes: Head: Galbanum, tarragon, basil, peppermint. Heart: Lily of the valley, jasmine, rose, ylang. Base: Cedarwood, leather and musk.
Week-end is composed of tender herbs mixed with peppermint, sweet basil and tarragon, which provide a floral note with strong tones of lily of the valley – at least, what is left of it, because lily of the valley, from which no natural essence can be extracted, is sorely tested in the production of scents. Not a day passes but legislation limits still further the molecules that can be used to recreate it. It's goodbye to lilial, lyral, hydroxycitronellal and sweet bell-flowers! So they called upon jasmin absolute, supreme of ylang and resin of galbanum to sustain the lily of the valley. A hint of apple and cardamom to invoke deepest Normandy. Helional and calone, more recent essences, recall the sea air of the coast. A touch of leather is a nod to the Norman stud farms. Cedarwood and white musk complete the picture.
A delightfully fresh, green and floral scent that will transport you to a weekend in Deauville, the very essence of Normandy!
