In June 2013 Patricia de Nicolaï has presented a new fragrance to celebrate the summer of 2013. Eau sOleil, a new summer EdT, joins Eau d’Eté, L'Eau miXte, L'Eau cHic and L'Eau à la Folie as part of the collection Eau Fraîche.

The citrus-floral fragrance is described as subtle and delicate. Neroli, Egyptian jasmine and ylang-ylang from the Comoros islands contribute to the overall sunny character of the scent.

"Seeing the success of my 'Brume d’Oreiller'—inspired by orange flowers oil—I thought it would be interesting to create a fragrance which used the same citrus characteristics," explains Patricia de Nicolaï. "This is why I imagined Eau sOleil as an ideal summer fresh fragrance in which the Neroli reminds us of the smells of our childhood."

The composition opens with invigorating and luminous lemon, mandarin, bergamot, petitgrain, herbal thyme and wormwood. White floral notes of jasmine, ylang-ylang and neroli dominate the heart note. The base consists of earthy patchouli and soft musk.

Eau sOleil is available as 30 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette at Parfums de Nicolaï boutiques in Paris and London. The nose behind this fragrance is Patricia de Nicolai.

Eau sOleil Fragrance Reviews


I disliked this one. Something dusty and mouldy that I couldn't get past.


Fresh citrus notes, bitter green of wormwood and aromatic thyme open this composition. It goes on rather strong.
Give it 30 minutes to an hour to settle on your skin and the scent becomes softer and less aromatic. Neroli is the lead singer accompanied by sweet and creamy ylang-ylang and jasmine as the background vocals.
It's a wonderful realistic, sunny aromatic neroli fragrance with a strong sillage to begin with, which settles in an hour to moderate to soft. Longevity about 6 hours on my skin.


It's very pretty, although I find it just a bit on the sweet side, more so than I would have expected from the notes. It stays very floral on me, I get very little of the herbal notes, it's mainly neroli and ylang-ylang, with a warm musky base. It's a nice reminder of summer and sun on chilly fall days. Longevity and sillage are both good.


Excellent woody-citrusy cologne.

This staff might have a structure of a very typical cologne, but it is a high quality one. At the beginning the notes are super vibrant and realistic. I almost seen 3D citrus fruits, neroli and lush tree foliage, wearing this. Dry-down softens up a lot because of the musk. Really good!


It reminds me of many other eau de colognes at first, but it has a natural smelling quality to it. I'm surprised nobody noticed the musk in the base, after a few hours it gets pretty prominent.


Eau sOleil goes on like an expensive after sun spray and smells divine. It has a beachy vibe, but not in the typical suntan lotion or sea salt way that we experience with other beachy scents. It is uplifting and happy; I just wish it lasted longer on my skin. As with many of the Parfums de Nicolai scents, it is very well blended. The petitgrain keeps the mix from being too terribly sweet - so this could definitely be worn by either sex. This is a true joy to wear - highly recommended, and I have to say a great niche house as well. I really love that they keep their prices lower.
