“I visited the Center East many instances and I’m at all times shocked by the very heat and welcoming Arabic sense of hospitality. Particularly after they give you espresso! The Arabic espresso is so distinctive, it’s an exquisite combination of Arabica beans and spices reminiscent of cardamom and Tonka beans.

It’s a path I actually wished to undergo as I notice that I didn’t actually have a woody gourmand in my assortment of fragrances.
After I began to work on the brand new Nicolaï Parfumeur Createur Caravansérail Intense, the problem for me was to remodel this typical spicy espresso taste right into a fragrance. To take action, I constructed a prime notice utilizing espresso absolute, cardamom essence and a few fruity plum aspects. Then I made a decision to assist this primary impression by a woody patchouli and sandalwood coronary heart all accomplished by dry amber base notes like Ambrocenide and Ambroxan. The title Caravansérail got here on the finish and it was so apparent! In the course of the Center-Ages a caravanserai was an inn developed all through the Center-East the place vacationers of the Silk and Spices routes used to relaxation after lengthy and onerous journeys. It was a secure place on which additionally they used to commerce and get data of the world. It was a spot of hospitality and that is actually the attribute of that perfume”–Patricia de Nicolaï, January 13, 2023, solely for ÇaFleureBon.
