Olivine Full Regalia is a fragrance inspired by the perfumer’s grandfather’s race horse, Full Regalia. However, this isn’t a perfume that will bring to mind horses or race tracks. You won’t find animalic or hay-like notes in this one. Instead the inspiration for this one is more of a “winning combination” of notes.
Full Regalia is a sweet, powdery perfume. It opens as a sweet vanilla with blackberry jam over a floral/jasmine Egyptian musk. As it wears on my skin, it becomes more powdery, like a powdery rose with a sweet vanilla and a faint, juicy blackberry. It dries down to a powdery vanilla with warm woods.
These sort of powdery musk scents can be difficult to “pull off”. But, I’ve found when these work for you, they really work. Full Regalia is like blackberry musk, floral dusting powder and vanilla cream.
Notes listed include vanilla, Egyptian jasmine, Moroccan red rose, musk, blackberry and patchouli.
Give Full Regalia a try if you like powdery musks or blackberry scents. Or if you like perfumes like Nasomatto China White, Juliette Has a Gun Citizen Queen, Reminiscence Musc, Trish McEvoy #9 and/or Philosophy Falling in Love.
Projection and longevity are average for a perfume oil. It’s also available as an EDP. I’ve sampled the oil.
The oil retails for $48 at Beautyhabit. Samples are available for purchase.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Powdery blackberry musk. It’s sweet and powdery which may not be for everyone. However, if you’re someone that likes Egyptian musk scents or are looking for a different take on blackberry, this is worth sampling.
