L'Eau Chic by Parfums De Nicolai

If you have a proclivity for minty aromas, you're in luck. The opening of L'Eau Chic is exceptionally good. A soft geranium rendition and minty lavender lead off for L'Eau Chic and do what top of the order hitters are so supposed to.

Parfum De Nicolai has the listed notes as : Pelargonium, Mint, Lavender, Orris, Red Pepper, Sandalwood and Musk.

Never loud, the lavender-mint tandem is like a fresh, cool breath. This duo, along with the geranium, last a good while for an opening accord. Once the orris contributes, the scent seems to take on a slight herbaceous quality instead of the expected violet. After 20 minutes, the fragrance is very comfortable and L'Eau Chic is now a slightly minty floral with herbal overtones.

The overall volume is on the low side, but the fragrance still has longevity as a close scent after a few hours. L'Eau Chic is ( to me ) an extremely understated masculine that can be worn by either sex. My disappointment lies in the fact that this never becomes woody enough in the base accord or drydown. I barely detect any sandal, but the musk does arrive in a very slow and steady fashion. It too is polite and I come to the conclusion that I like the top and mid accords much better than the base. It simply doesn't seem to follow through.

In spite of feeling this way, I still like L'Eau Chic and would wear it because I tend to periodically spritz ( via atomizers ) as the day progresses. The first two-thirds of the scent is worth reapplying every 2 hours. The drydown leaves me wanting, but I believe this would make a very good spring and summer fragrance.

Three-fourths of a thumbs up from Aromi for Parfums De Nicolai's L'Eau Chic.
