Reviews of Olympios

I’ve been quite on a “vintage Fahrenheit craze” lately, since I’ve been finally able to stock a decent pile of backups of it, and I wore it quite often. Besides granting me hours of sinful delight, that helped me also in assessing something I wanted to check since long time –if, and how much Olympios Missoni is actually similar to vintage Fahrenheit. I own and quite like Olympios since a couple of years, and before getting some bottles lately, I only vaguely remembered vintage Fahrenheit, so I was unsure of what to think about the relationship between the two. But I was quite sure that as other reviewers mentioned, the two fragrances were quite similar. Well in fact, now that I can compare them, they are indeed. The bone-structure is clearly the same: violet, herbs, cedar, powdery flowers, a hint of leather, moss, altogether creating a similar sort of “dark terpenic violet” atmosphere.

Still, there is enough difference to avoid any redundancy (well, sort of); Fahrenheit is decidedly more powdery, gassier and darker, and way more rich and complex, while Olympios is quite more simple, more herbal, drier and quite more bitter too, ultimately a bit cheaper as well. It feels like taking inspiration from the general genius structure of Fahrenheit, bringing it on an “easier” territory, both notes-wise and quality-wise. Nonetheless I would consider it a little true keeper, as it smells basically like a sort of bitter-herbal flanker of vintage Fahrenheit, both fresher and drier at once. I wouldn’t ever recommend this as a replacement for the immense, out-of-this-world intricated beauty of vintage Fahrenheit, but it’s surely a little fascinating gem that would make a perfect “discarded flanker” of it.

Vintage Fahrenheit in disguise

close your eyes, it's Fahrenheit in the Eighties.

Olympios was a flop, due to its similitudine to Dior's classic, but it had to be re-discovered now.

A vintage Fahrenheit clone. I could probably end my review here but time and certain circumstances can change my perception and evaluation of this composition. Let's say you're looking for a vintage bottle of Fahrenheit and can't find it anywhere but you see Olympios available at a resonable price...go ahead as this is possible the closest thing to vintage Fahrenheit.

This is a very, nice warm, spicy, woody scent and as long as you don't's a wonderful, unique scent. Thumbs up...but a little goes a long way! Joshaugustt

This is what Fahrenheit should have been!
In the same line as Fahrenheit, but *much* better!
Less rubbery, more leathery.
Less floral, more spicy.
A very nice scent! (had to find though!)
