Odin New York 08 Seylon : New Perfume

Odin New York introduces 08 Seylon, a perfume inspired by the South Asian island of Sri Lanka. It is a vetiver fragrance that “takes us on a journey through the damp soils of untamed Sri Lanka.” The notes include yuzu, bitter orange, bergamot, nutmeg, resinous elemi, wormwood, benzoin, oakmoss, and vetiver. The perfume is part of the Odin New York collection that features 01 Sunda, 02 Owari, 03 Century, 04 Petrana, 06 Amanu and 07 Tanoke.

“Harvested from the wild landscapes of Sri Lanka comes a scent that truly represents an authentic interpretation of pure vetiver. Seylon opens with the watery crispness of fresh yuzu followed by the tartness of bitter orange and bergamot. Middle notes of spicy nutmeg, resinous elemi and wormwood merge together with a rich base of warm benzoin, damp oakmoss and the soft earthiness of calming vetiver.”

Odin perfumes are available at Odin New York, Aedes de Venustas in New York, Barney’s New York, Colette in Paris, Liberty in London, Quartier 206 in Berlin, Lane Crawford in Hong Kong, and Isola in Madrid. $165/100ml. Via press release

  • sara: this perfume sounds really nice. i wear and love sunda and i’m saving to get a bottle of century. but what happened of 05? i just noticed that they’ve skipped it. September 19, 2012 at 10:29am Reply

    • Victoria: I think that they’ve skipped it out of the concerns relating to Chanel No 5. That’s what I’ve read someplace. September 19, 2012 at 10:44am Reply

  • Daisy: I live right down the street from Odin. Maybe today is time for a field trip 🙂 September 19, 2012 at 11:26am Reply

    • Victoria: I don’t know where and how I might smell Odin here, so I will rely on your reconnaissance to let me know if Seylon is any good! September 19, 2012 at 5:02pm Reply
