Olympéa Legend, a sweet nectar in an antique bottle
Olympéa Legend is described as “ a desert flower on hot sand. An addiction of salty-vanilla plum. A duel in the stunning sun that loves the skin. Infinitely ”. On a purely olfactory level, this is reflected first of all by the presence of palm blossom, an unusual and infinitely luxuriant ingredient. Its freshness is here associated with an immediate solar impression. The plum, for its part, gives a more velvety and syrupy side to this essence. Note, however, that it is here worked in a salty way, an unexpected touch that gives more depth to this fragrance. The heart of Olympéa Legend is also full of vanilla, an ingredient widely used in women’s perfumery, and renowned for its sensuality. Suave and languid, the vanilla here gives off a sweet and smoky sweetness, somewhat spicy. Finally,
Olympéa Legend is presented to us in a bottle with an already world famous silhouette. Indeed, it takes the visual of its predecessors and brilliantly mixes ancient codes with a very contemporary aesthetic. The Olympéa Legend bottle forms a perfect circle and takes on a divine allure.

Olympea Legend, when vanilla turns fruity and syrupy, a new sensuality is born
< p> Olympéa Legend offers us a new vision of vanilla sensuality originally created in 2015 by Anne Flipo, Loc Dong and Dominique Ropion.
Indeed, the different bottles composed around Olympéa Eau de Parfum have each in turn diffused the accord of salted vanilla, the backbone of the original creation, sometimes powerful accords of solar and animal notes for Olympea Intense, sometimes an aquatic freshness for Olympéa Aqua or even a surge of flowery ambergris in Olympéa Aqua 2018.
With Olympéa Legend, the journey will take place in 2019 in a vanilla exotic at will between floral and solar notes, a new accord of syrupy plum and unprecedented depths of tonka bean.

The signature vanilla accord of Olympéa Legend takes its strength in exotic and summery notes
For this Olympea Legend, the famous very heroic bottle from ancient Greece designed by the artist Marc Aurèle (this cannot be invented!) is kept identically , however it is marked by the powerful orange reflections of the juice it encloses, as if this Olympéa Legend were the fruit of the gods or a fruit which would become liquor by a sublime aging, or a divine intervention?
Olympéa Legend will also be marked by a large number of olfactory changes in relation to the original bottle and the different variations. Because, even though the power of its chords could bring us closer to Olympéa Intense released in 2017, Olympéa Legend preferred to play with a floral-fruity accord rather than solar flowers (orange blossom and tiare) as was the case. case in the 2017 bottle.
Olympéa Legend will begin its precious journey with rare and precious notes of palm blossoms which, without a doubt, evoke the sun and the heat while being very feminine. Then in the heart, the vanilla is of course always so creamy, however, combined with a note of candied plum, it takes on a syrupy density and some spicy strengths. Finally, the tonka bean almond note brings a powdery roundness to the whole while of course also reminding us of this famous coumarin which once again brings the salt to the vanilla emblematic of Olympéa. The irresistible sensual depths of Olympéa Legend plunges us into an exotic journey that will hardly stop…
Without a doubt, the exotic sensuality of this new Olympéa Legend opus will not leave anyone indifferent!
