Frenchwoman Patricia de Nicolaï is a descendant of the famed Guerlain family who inherited her relatives' love of perfumery. Yet she
decided not to join her family's company. Instead, she branched out on her own. She soon made a name for herself as a rising star in the industry. In 1988, she even became the first woman to win the International Prize for Young Perfumers. The following year, she started her namesake brand alongside her husband. She is now a busy businesswoman who also serves as president of the Osmothèque in France. Yet she still makes time to develop new fragrances.
