I AM SERENE L

|Paco Rabanne|Olympéa

I am beyond excited to share with you all my latest perfume buy, Olympéa from Paco Rabanne. I’ve always loved the brand for their signature scents including the lovely fragrance, Lady Million.

I’ve had high expectations for this fragrance since I caught the advert of the Olympéa perfume on television. I instantly saw (judged) by the Greek God theme that this was going to be the partner fragrance for their men’s fragrance, Invictus. Now, if anything this got me excited as if it was anything Like Invictus it definitely floated my boat if you know what I mean. I loved the men’s fragrance, and even bought it for my brother for his birthday! So I knew that the female version will not be a disappointment :)!!!

I fell in love with the bottle the minute I set my eyes on the Olympéa bottle! If anything you will put your other bottles to shame, I adore the Circular base of the perfume, and the surrounding rose gold detailing. It definitely reminds me of a Greek Goddess statue.

The scent is aimed to target the modern day Cleopatra ( Olympéa )!

“The fragrance of a modern day goddess, Paco Rabanne Olympéa  Eau de Parfum makes a statement of strength, power and seduction. Between myth and reality is where you’ll find Olympēa, a statuesque idol of conquest and victory. Her fragrance is just as commanding as she is, featuring a legend-inspiring salted vanilla accord that elevates her above the clouds.”

Paco Rabanne

From the first spray, you’re invited into an intense world of sweetness and floral! I think one spray is enough, as the intensity of the scent can be a little too much with more than one spray! I’d go for a spray on the neck or the wrist! Trust me a little does go a long way, as the lasting smell of the scent stays on for agesssss! :D… Back to the fragrance scent! Olympēa combines a wonderful range of different ingredients including the Ginger Lily and the Jasmine which is the first set of notes to greet your nose buds & then you’ll slowly be invited into a creamy and sweet Salted Vanilla scent as the heart of the middle notes for the fragrance. The sweetness of the Vanilla enables a more subtle and sweet after scent which I can confirms made me feel confident!!! As a final note for the perfume that acts as the base that brings together all the smells, you’re greeted into an intense and powerful scent brought through the Sandalwood & the Ambergris.

Notes in the fragrance include:

Top: Green Mandarin, Ginger Lily, Hydroponic Jasmine
Heart: Salted Vanilla
Base: Sandalwood, Ambergris

All in all, I definitely recommend trialling out this fragrance, as the perfume instantly makes you feel confident & seductive through the careful blend of the floral and the sweet! A definite yes in my books & cannot wait to see what Paco Rabanne come up with next!!!

    I love the idea of the scent being strong after just one spray as perfume doesn’t seem to cling very well to my skin! I’ve also seen the advertisement/campaign for this scent and oh my gosh, it’s so ethereally beautiful 🙂 The top note of Jasmine sounds lovely…

    • Heheh I think that’s perfect because the actual scent will last longer & the staying nature of the perfume is long lasting! Such a great aspect of the perfume :)! I loved the advert too! I love Greek Mythology & find the concept of this perfume and the brother perfume, Invictus such a great concept <3! I also love the fact they've mixed the Jasmine with the Vanilla! A really lovely blend of ingredients 🙂 xoxox

  27. Oh my gosh the bottle is like a work of art- I am immediately drawn to anything rose gold and this would just look stunning on the dresser! I can see what you mean about the statue look too. I’m a big fan of Paco Raabanne fragrances too- I used to use Black XS, which smelt soooo good! The way you’ve described the perfume makes it sound like something would certainly invest in 🙂 Wonderful review as always

    P.S. I’m wearing ‘Ricci Ricci’ by Nina Ricci
