Olympéa by Paco Rabanne

Olympéa is a feminine perfume by Paco Rabanne. The concept comes from the idea of modern Greek Goddess. It brings to the fore tales of conquests, dynamism, and strength. As a Greek Mythology buff, I simply have to get a whiff of this scent.

  1. Top Notes
    • Green Mandarin, Water Jasmine, Ginger Flower
  2. Heart Notes
  3. Salt, Vanilla
  4. Base notes
    • Ambergris, Cashmere Wood, Sandalwood

On my skin, I get hints of citrusy notes from the green mandarin and ginger flower, it then starts to mellow into a delicious blend of salty vanilla and jasmine. Olympéa is a floriental scent that's perfect for day and night. It doesn't feel too overwhelming on a hot day nor it is too light for night time. This scent has a beachy vibe to it due to the salty notes, it also keeps the vanilla scent from being too sweet. 

A long lasting scent with medium sillage. It's intimate, feminine and elegant, a creamy floriental scent that's perfect for a modern Greek Goddess. If you love vanilla and jasmine, do add this to your collection. Another plus?  The bottle design is gorgeous too!
