Glitter ball
"This is grade A 100% pure Colombian cocaine, ladies and gentlemen. Disco Shit. Pure as the driven snow."

Within the Nicolaï line-up, New York Intense may be the community darling but its spicy-vanilla-fougere masculinity seems incompatible with me. I decided to sell that one and get myself Number One Intense instead. This is a lovely white floral composition and a close second to the miraculous Odalisque.

Tuberose is clearly in the lead here, while it is backed by orange blossom and a heavy civet-purr. The feeling is prickly dry-bitter in the opening and warms up as a pleasant sandalwood-moss slowly takes over.

There is a powerful, almost stinging 80's vibe which makes this one feel ultra-feminine. On a scale of 1 to 10? Well over 200! As my personal taste gravitates to the green and white florals, I find myself perfectly comfortable in the ladies' section of the perfume store. But with this one it took quite a while before I could wear it with confidence. Now I can tell you, once you mastered Number One Intense, a "glitterball and spotlights" entrance is part of the package.

Hubby Doesn't Love
My OH doesn't love this one, but I still had to have it. For one thing, it has sandalwood, my favorite wood; ambergris, my favorite animalic; and three of my favorite florals: jasmine, rose, orange blossom. I think the sharply dank tagetes brings the ambergris to the edge and the oakmoss only deepens things, but to me it works. My first sniff was an "oh yes!" intoxication. Green galbanum in the top note and black currant don't really tame the throbbing indoles of the florals amid the musty stank. Even though hubby took one sniff, said "nope" and walked away, I say "yes, yes, yes." Not sure about the longevity because I'm either anosmic to it already or my skin is drinking it, but this is a dry day. It's probably becoming a skin scent, but when I wait and re-sniff, I get to say, "oh yes!" again. More applause to Patricia Nicolaï for a fragrance that goes for power rather than mere prettiness.

Pollinic florals, primarily creamy tuberose plus some jasmine, with a green touch and a light sweetness. Linear drydown.

A classic ultra-feminine chypre. Dramatic entrance, white-yellow floral chorus and heavy civet-moss-sandal base. YES!
