  • Base Notes: Ylang Ylang & Benzoin
  • Gender: Feminine

  • Olfactory Family: Solar Floral

This is the scent of a Goddess. “Strong and independent, Olympéa shines with solar energy. True beauty at the zenith of her, majestic and victorious. The glow of a luminous sensuality reveals her many facets. Bright flowers in the sun. A radiant bouquet of flowers imbued with surprising sensuality from aromatic notes and solar oakmoss.”

Olympea Solar opens with a sweet and sparkling citrusy accords of orange peel and mandarin zest, supported by the orange blossom. After 20 minutes the heart notes of solar oakmoss, combined with a white flower bouquet and solar tiare flowers while the warm base accords of ylang-ylang represents the sun’s rays on the skin together with benzoin in the dry down. Certainly one of the most gorgeous releases for the summer 2022, a sweet creamy floral. 

Is not clogging or sickly sweet but it manages to have around 1 meter projection and 8-12 hours of duration, is quite different from the original Olympea and when it comes to designers perfume releases I could easily say this is one of the most original ones.
