Summer Perfumes

These ‘golden’ fragrances are not as light and carefree as the usual summer fragrances; instead they bring a rich and sultry essence of confidence and glamour.

Paco Rabanne Olympea

A feminine counterpart to the men’s fragrance Paco Rabanne Invictus, this fresh oriental scent was inspired by the athletic spirit, competition and victory. The Olympea woman is a modern-day Cleopatra, a demi-goddess with powers to be successful, desired and to be victorious. She will give the Invictus guy a good run for his money.

Top notes: green mandarin, vanilla and ginger flower.
Heart: vanilla and salt.
Base notes: ambergris, cashmere wood and sandalwood.

Perfumers: Loc Dong, Dominique Ropion and Anne Flipo.
Bottle design: flat round bottle with tactile laurel wreath details on the side (the crown of a Greek goddess). Colour is a feminine rose gold.

EDP 30ml – £40, 50ml – £54, 80ml – £70.
