The project behind EolieParfums
At first, we created seven perfumes to dedicate to the seven magic and sacred islands. Each perfume is a dedication, recalling the characteristic smells of the island. Each inspiration continues to make us feel the same emotion of the first time.
Over time, we created two more fragrances dedicated to the winds that shaped the archipelago. Finally, the last two perfumes inspired by the Homeric mythology.
Eolieparfums was born in 2014 from the deep love of Olga Iossa, the creator of the project and the current creative director, for the Aeolian Islands and her desire to describe the intense sensory experience capturing the essence that makes each island unique in its character, to carry it with you and fix it on your skin for a long time.
Wild, uncontaminated, mythical: the seven Aeolian islands are there, in the middle of the Tyrrhenian Sea, waiting for you.
A crystal clear sea surrounds, caresses and dominates them, after having shaped its coasts for millennia and millennia, still continuing today to draw imperceptibly the contours.
These places are full of suggestions, but they are also very material. Don’t forget that these are volcanic islands, which release physical energies, whose appearance has been designed and shaped by volcanic lava.
Extrait de Parfum
Since the beginning, Eolieparfums wanted to create its fragrances as Extrait de Parfum, perfumes with a concentration of essential oils at least equal to 25%. Much more concentrated and persistent than eau de parfum.
One of the reasons that pushed us towards the expressive power of Extrait is that they respond better to the natural power of the Aeolian Islands, which, in those places, creates very strong and different olfactory emotions.
The Extrait structure is designed to enter into osmosis with the skin, and to create, in contact with it, a unique alchemy that expresses itself differently on each person. Vaporized inside the wrists and elbows, at the base of the neck, at the root of the hair or in the hollow of the décolleté, the perfume will reveal its presence following the movements and the flow of hours without ever becoing intrusive.
Perfume accompanies every moment of life. Adapting its intensity according to mood, desires or circumstances is an authentic ritual, it tells who we are. Perfume is silent poetry. Invisible body language, impalpable… It announces us… and follows us.
The gesture of perfuming is ancient and intimate. Choosing the right frangrance is a small gesture of art: imagine how artistic it must be to create perfumes!
Creme de Parfum
Creams have a great moisturizing and nourishing power. Together with the Extrait line, Eolieparfums has created the Creme de Parfum to complete and make indissoluble the bond between the body and the fragrances. The ingredients used, in addition to being dermatologically tested, are all natural and this has made possible to reach the 5% of concentration of essential oils (when normally this concentration is around 1%).
Sweet Almond Oil has emollient, softening, soothing and nourishing properties, fights skin aging and makes the skin more elastic.
Organic Hibiscus Flower Extract is a valuable source of energy and hydration for our skin. Its richness of organic acids and other biomolecules such as tannins and flavonoids is the basis of its anti-oxidant, toning and healing properties.
Karité Butter with its load of Vitamins A, B, E and F, Hyaluronic Acid and Vegetable Glycerine complete all our creams making them unique not only in the scent but also in the quality. The cream is not an alternative to the perfume but it represents the essential complement!
