Oliver & Co Nebulae series ~ new fragrances

oliver-nebula

Spanish niche brand Oliver & Co has launched the Nebulae series, with two fragrances: Nebula 1 and Nebula 2. The new scents were inspired by astronomical photographs of Orion and Carina.

Nebula 1 ~ "NEBULA 1 represents the excitement of a trip into the unknown. The incessant heartbeat of the human soul as they approach the immensity and nothingness of space. NEBULA 1 recreates a universe of warm tones accompanied by a blinding white light: fiery roses, rosewood and garnet, mauves and purples, ambers and shadows." The notes include white musks, woods, tolu balsam, synthetic castoreum, styrax, benzoin, vanilla, champaca, rose, red fruits, neroli, petitgrain, orange blossom, bitter orange, blood orange, star anise, violet, saffron, jasmine, davana, lavender and grapefruit.

Nebula 2 ~ "Imagine a trip to an unknown planet, populated solely by endless forests, bathed in a cold blue light air filled with minerals, greens from recently discovered space vegetables, electric yellows, deep chiaroscuro and metallic reflections." The notes include ambergris, woods, vetiver, poplar bud, liatrix, grapefruit, kaffir lime, chamomile, clary sage, lime, blue notes, watermelon, yuzu, galbanum, nutmeg, cardamom, anise, white musks, elderflower, violet leaves, blackcurrant, jasmine and gardenia.

Oliver & Co Nebula 1 and Nebula 2 are available in 50 ml Eau de Toilette.

    Space vegetables, eh? That’s a new one. The second one sounds interesting, except for the dreaded ‘blue notes’ and watermelon.

  2. kindcrow says:

    These piqued the interest of the sci-fi nerd in me, but the notes are a bit of a mish-mash.

      Especially the second one. Watermelon and clary sage?

      • Robin says:

        They are satisfyingly nerdy, yes! And the bottles are lovely.

    That is some impressively silly ad-copy, there! Love the bottles.

    I don’t know what “blue notes” means, but I’d be interested in trying these because I dig the concept. And because space vegetables.

    • Robin says:

      Space vegetables are compelling :-)

        I thought of Tintin, where ventures to a meteorite and there are these space mushrooms that sprout and blow up everywhere..I think it was called, L’etoile Mysterieuse.

        Sounds groovy:). lol.

  5. Omega says:

    Too nerdy for me. That would make a cool nightlight or something but not a perfume bottle. Imo.

    I don’t know if I’d actually like these scents, but they got my astro-girl nerd hopes up for a minute. And dashed them. I was hoping for a real “spacey” scent. Grilled steak, gunpowder, and gas fumes.

    I don’t know if I would ever run across these, but boy, my NASA nerdy girl wanna be is totally geeking out about these.
