Seattle-based Olympic Orchids has launched White Cattleya, the newest addition to their orchid collection.
White cattleya orchids are the prototypical wedding flower. They are strongly fragrant, with a scent that combines gourmand citrus with an undercurrent of moist petals, vanilla, and musky sexiness. Olympic Orchids White Cattleya perfume captures this scent in wearable form. It’s not the bright-colored, blowsy, bubble-gum fruity-floral orchids of summer. Instead, it has a crispness to it that’s like a bride’s white lace dress, suspended from a network of tulle. Like the dress, the bright citrus coating is slowly peeled away to reveal the soft, sensuous, sweet and musky layers beneath.
Notes feature citron, lemon, neroli, jasmine, heliotrope, orchid accord, vanilla and musk.
Olympic Orchids White Cattleya is $65 for 30 ml.
