Olivine Full Regalia Perfume Oil Review

Olivine Full Regalia

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 EauPINIONPowdery 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.

  1. Looking at the berries and musk notes, I wonder how does this compare to Mure et Musc (or MeM Extreme)? I do really enjoy that scent, so I wonder if I might like this one too. 🙂

      1. Sweeter and more powdery… that could be good! It’s a very good price point too, perhaps I’ll add it to the samples-to-obtain list. Thanks!

        1. I agree! But, I do know that some people don’t like sweet or powdery. I don’t mind either.

          I really like Amongst the Waves from this line. It’s one to try if you like “beach” scents.

          1. Sweeter AND more powdery than MeM? I am SOLD. Thanks for the great review–adding to my “must sample at Luckyscent” list for my next LA trip.

            I’m such a sucker for powdery scents these days and I’ve been especially drawn to anything with heliotrope. If you have any heliotrope fragrance recs, I would love to hear them. I was debating on giving the Molinard Les Senteurs Helioptrope a whirl (you know me and budget-friendly fragrances) but I’ve read some reviews that say it doesn’t really smell like heliotrope at all. Anyway, any recs would be greatly appreciated!

          2. I go in and out of powdery moods (like I do everything). Last year I went through a powdery amber phase.

            Heliotrope is one of my favorite notes. My favorite is Guerlain Apres L’Ondee for that “classic” heliotrope. Next would be Etro Heliotrope which is so delicious (more like almonds).

            My budget ones: Lalique Satine (cheap on discount sites). It’s a heliotrope gourmand with patchouli. And Smell Bent Floral. It’s a good heliotrope soliflore for the price. I also like Fragronard Heliotrope Gingembre which is a spicy heliotrope (like fresh ginger and heliotrope).

            If you want a really powdery one, try Lorenzo Villoressi Teint de Neige (Luckyscent carries it, I think), powdery and feminine helitrope (plus I love to say the name!) I also recommend Sonoma Scent Studio to Dream if you like rose too. It’s like a powdery rose and heliotrope.

            Personally, I like the Molinard one. It’s not “exactly” like heliotrope flowers but 99% of stuff isn’t because heliotrope is replicated with aromachemicals. Heliotrope is like almond/cherry/powder flowers so there is room for lots of interpretation 🙂
