 Indie Fragrance Review


                                                      CAFE V
                                    by Olympic Orchids


     While staring out the window of my home on this Memorial Day and sipping a cup of coffee. I am reminded of those who have gone before us to protect this great country. If not, I would not be staring out my window at this time sipping a cup of coffee.

       This brings me to my latest discovery of a fragrance that is inspired by Seattle's great coffee houses and how CAFE V came to be.

       I met Ellen Convey, business owner and nose of Olympic Orchids at a fragrance exhibition last year. Olympic Orchids was established in 2010 in the Pacific Northwest designing handcrafted fragrances inspired by orchid flowers.

      Ellen was so inviting and so passionate about telling all about Olympic Orchids that made me become humble in her presence.

      Its not a moment that goes by that I am not seeking the update on the weather. It seems lately that most of the country is being visited by rainstorm after rainstorm.

      My agenda today is not to barbecue but to continue to sip my cup of coffee and take in the aroma of CAFE V Eau de Parfum.

     This wonderful gourmand scent is steamed in a warm concoction of royal essential oils and absolutes to give its entity to the cacao that is truly irresistible.

    Its highs and lows are filtered with dark cacao, spicy chai and mellows to the sweet aroma of vanilla, cream with sustaining wood.

   The sillage reminds me of its long lasting compassion to the non-stop raining moments and how it is created to bring memories in good taste that goes from the morning to the night.

   What is  even more pleasing to me is the cost! This finely crafted scent in my estimation should cost a lot more. I say this because of all that I get from it.

   Its lasting implications are what fine scents are all about. It should be about the story, the history and the lasting memories when worn each time that should warm the heart.

  CAFE V, for men and women is the perfect scent for me today.

  expresso-roast coffee, dark cacao, vanilla, cream, spicy chai, cardamom, leather, wood

  Buying Information: 30 ml EDP spray $40.00 USD; 15ml screw cap bottle parfum $25.00 USD; 5ml refillable travel spray parfum $15.00 USD.

The word "belles lettres" is a French phrase meaning "beautiful or "fine writing. Since this is a term to describe a category of writing, this will pertain to my passion about fragrances. I will review niche,natural, artisan and designer perfumes from all over the world. I write with passion but will use my journalistic skills that I obtained in college. Not only will I feature fragrances but I will feature new books on fragrances/perfumes, fragrance events and interview authors and perfumers.


I hope you take this journey with me and begin your own passion for the ART OF PERFUMERY!
