L’Occitane has launched Olinda, a new fruity floral fragrance in the brand's L’Occitane au Brésil range (made in Brazil and celebrating Brazilian biodiversity). The scent was inspired by the women of Olinda, a city on Brazil's northeast coast.
Olinda was developed by perfumer Carmita Magalhães. The notes include mandarin, green apple, cassis, floral and green notes, umbu-cajá (fruit) accord, sandalwood, amber and vanilla.
L'Occitane Olinda is available in 100 ml Cologne and in matching products.

Umbu-Caja is one of the best smelling things on Earth, so this sounds interesting. Let’s see how close to the fruit it is. The Olinda backstory does not hurt either. A beachy colonial town full of artists and all sorts of cool people, I consider it one of the most awesome places in Brazil.
Ah, good to know…have not been to Olinda and have never had umbu caja.
