This is my pick me up fragrance. For some reason, I feel myself lifted and energized by the citrus. The later stages of this scent are my favorite though - it feels very comforting and also subtly sexy to me.

This is my signature scent for spring, summer, and fall. Starts out with a bite, but very quickly dries down to a crisp yet unique skin scent. This is most certainly unisex, in my opinion, so probably not for the ladies who prefer sweet or flowery scents. I, however, prefer to save sweeter scents for special occasions, so this is ideal for someone like me who likes to smell fresh and just a bit …Read more

I agree with paschat. This is completely nice and proper, in fact it's textbook material/sniffer primer on lime notes and toilet water, but it is nothing that I care to think about or smell for a length of time. Lasting power is at best, average. I believe you can get this on the bay for very little $ if you look. But this is not her best work. For something really smashing from this line …Read more

I really wanted to like Eau d'Ete . From all that I have read about Patricia Nicolai by Luca Turin and perfume writers, she is well respected as a talented perfumer. I am also very partial to colognes and adore Eau de Rochas, Chanel's Eau de Cologne and Dior's Cologne Blanche, for example.


However, Eau d'Ete is not in the same category as those mentioned …

This orangey-jasminey-spicy fragrance must have been conceived as a crowd-pleaser, but it's not my favourite Nicolai scent and I can't appreciate it much. It gets a bit too sharp, almost acrid, on me and fails to give me that "feel good" experience I expect from summer fragrances. It just lacks something, maybe some creaminess.

This is so refreshing on hot days! A lemony and bright scent with lots of sweet cinnamon in the drydown. The jasmine keeps it crisp and airy. Uplifting, never overpowering and the cinnamon makes it interesting. One of my summer staples that I never seem to tire of. Highly recommended!

Nice, light citrus-jasmine scent with a lovely orange note and a hint of cinnamon. Like all PdN fragrances it's a terrific, well-balanced blend and a must for anyone who loves light summery fragrances. Decently priced, too!

i was ready to dismiss eau d'ete but i just think that i 'd be treat withno justice.Apart from everything it's a good quality Nicolai creation and i bet this could be a real crowd pleaser.As for my opinion:Starts with a blast of heady honeyed flower before a big sunny orange takes the spot.I actually think the orange note is lovely.This is short lived as others reviewers already …Read more

I have become addicted to this scent. When I first tested it, I was really disappointed--it starts out very pungent and strong. But it mellowed down fairly quickly, and now I totally agree with the previous reviewer's description of "fresh, creamy lemon with a touch of balsam and cinnamon", except I think it smells divine. A 4 instead of 5 because the lasting power is just fair.

Doesn´t work for me. Too "feral" and pungent, and decidedly not nice or fresh; more like hot straw and lemons gone putrid. Dommage!
