    Wink Opoline

    THE PERFUME OF NINA RICCI MEMOIRE D HOMME HAS IN THE BASENOTES OPOLINE. HERE ITS A DESCRIPTION FROM OSMOZ


    Twelve years after the launch of Ricci Club, here is Mémoire d'Homme, a very virile and classic fragrance, refined and sober, with a touch of modernity, created by Christine Nagel of Quest, who chose noble raw materials, full of contrasts. Among them, the opoline, an original accord that Christine traced down to Antiquity. Some say that King Solomon charmed The Queen of Sheba with this balsam, a blind of opoponax, myrrh, amber, and musk. But before smelling the sensuous base note, you'll breathe in the tender and fresh scents of pomelo, ginger, nutmeg, licorice leaf, citron wood, blue cedar, and vetiver sap.


    I SEARCHED THE BASENOTES SITE AND I FIND THAT FROM HUNDREDS OF PERFUMES ONLY MEMOIRE D HOMME HAS THIS NOTE OPOLINE.
    DOES ANYBODY KNOWS SOMETHING MORE?

    It sounds like a marketing ploy. I would guess that there are hundreds if not thousands of fragrances containing a base with those ingredients (in different amounts of course), they just aren't calling it Opoline. The Opoline sounds wonderful but the top notes sound a little discordant. It could be a big mess. But, then again....

    I will keep an eye out for it.

    Sounds like moscholivanos... Do you know this? I think it's pretty well-known in Greece.

    Also, there was a temple incense in ancient Judaea called "opobalsamum." I have read about it in Nigel Groom's The Perfume Handbook (Chapman & Hall, London: 1992), but I doubt this could be it, since the authorities don't seem to be able to agree on what the botanical source of the material described in ancient sources could have been.

    Maybe paintrman is right. It could be an "accord" made up of different types of oleoresins. That's what the description seems to suggest. "Opoline" sounds like something a French marketing firm would come up with...
