Paco Rabanne Olympéa Eau De ParfumThursday, 14 January 2016 16:00
I had never really looked at Paco Rabanne Fragrances, but when they came into the office where I work to showcase the new Fragrance for women I fell in love instantly and new I had to buy it for myself. The fragrance in question is the gorgeous 'Olympéa'.
Firstly, can we please talk about the beautiful packaging!? I plumped for the 80ml Eau De Parfum and the box alone was stunning. The bottle has a gorgeous weight to it and is gilded with rose gold, which adds to the decadent Grecian theme. I love the clear glass bottle and it looks gorgeous on my dressing table.
The scent itself is described 'fresh' and 'oriental'. I would definitely say that those descriptions perfectly match the scent, but I also think it has a certain muskiness to it. There are hints of green mandarine, vanilla and something deeper, which I think is the cashmere wood that Paco Rabanne describe. Despite being quite a musky, powerful scent, I love that it still has a fruity freshness to it. I would definitely wear it all year round!
It also lingers throughout the day and I have never found this before with a fragrance on my skin. I love how I can still smell it at the end of the day and it lasts on my clothes for much longer.
I really love this scent and it has become a fast favourite! What scents are you loving at the moment? Have you tried this?
