I think it might be a very pleasant citrus-y, slightly salty, perfume. But I can't be sure because it disappears almost before I've had chance to smell it. Bought unsniffed and second-hand on Ebay because of the Nicolai name. I do wish it lasted better

I've yet to find a Parfums de Nicolai scent that I am really mad about. My first impression was that this resembled the old-fashioned lemon drops. Remember when as a child opening the bag of sugary confections and the zesty sugary lemon scent that lingered? After it starts to dry down a little more on the skin it gets a touch of masculine; perhaps vetiver? I was really starting to enjoy the zing of the lemon when in record time the zesty lemon turned sour and dusty. Luckily, in less than 2 minutes it totally disappeared. Would really love it if the opening was lasting.

I live to travel. I spend a great deal of my time dreaming about Grand Vacances. Consequently, I looked forward to trying this scent - a fragrance in sync w/ my dreams I thought. As it turns out, no. We're definitely booking different vacations. Patricia de Nicolai is a brilliant perfumer and I love most of her creations, but on me this scent was a dusty citrus that lacked zest or character and disappeared in record time. Maybe she created this during an overworked period while dreaming of that much needed vacation (or maybe it's just lousy luck w/ my skin chemistry). I far prefer her Eau d'Ete. I'm guessing that scent was created when she'd returned refreshed and alive again after that getaway trip.

Grande Vacances is similar to Parfums de Nicolai Eau d'Ete, but it has a more clear lime note and is without the muskier base. It is a neat, clean citrus that is very refreshing as a light cologne. It's much more linear and lacks the nuances of Eau d'Ete, but I actually prefer it because the underlying musk of Eau d'Ete turns sour on my skin.

Has the potential to be a beautiful fragrance -- sweet, crisp, clear lime, mixed with soft, delectable cocoa powder and vanilla (and yet it smells different Eclix) -- but wherefore art thou lasting power? This is gone within 2 minutes.

Grande Vacances is a very nice unisex fragrance that blends fresh, crisp, tart lime with a creamy sweet blend of cocoa, vanilla and musk. Grande Vacancesí mix of citrus with creamy warmth makes it great for the cooler months of fall and spring. This one is an extremely underrated, simple and delightful fragrance. Though not extremely deep or rich and somewhat one dimensional, it is nonetheless a very comforting and cheery fragrance. I enjoy it when Iím in that warm blanket kinda mood.

This one seems to be a hard to find item, I don't know why more Parfums de Nicolai places don't stock it. It's fantastic. Very fresh and soft. A lime top note hints of vanilla and cocoa absolutely delightful and very unusual. I love it. I hope they haven't stopped making it!
