Eco-conscious scent & skincare
Olentium was born out of a deep desire to infuse 100% botanical perfumes and skincare with the beauty of slower, more glamorous times. We all deserve some luxury in our everyday and all the more so in our current times. But, the luxury that natural, botanical cosmetics bring should not be at the expense of the natural world.
We decant our perfumes and beauty oils into glass-stoppered flacons not only for some retro glamour but importantly to slow the pace. These are not spritz and go cosmetics. Olentium cosmetics encourage sparing use and are designed to multi-task in order to reduce both our and your environmental footprint.
Our perfumes are concentrated and our skincare intentionally formulated with just the right amount of active, skin-beneficial ingredients.
Above all, these stoppered flacon can be recycled or reused as well as sent back to us to refill for you. We send our cosmetics’ flacon in small velvet or linen pouches that can also be reused for small keepsakes like jewellery. Our shipping policy will have details soon.
It goes without saying, we source 100% natural ingredients for the parfums and skincare. We task ourselves to use organic wherever possible and we’ve built good relations with trusted, ethical suppliers. To reduce our footprint, we seek to purchase raw materials from as close to our Mediterranean island home as possible. Our skincare actives have been developed by a pioneering lab in Sicily and we source most of our perfumery oils from the South of France and Tuscany in Italy as well as direct from growers in Egypt.
Soie de Parfums
Having trained in both organic cosmetic formulation and natural perfumery, founder Liz Grech decided to marry her two passions – of scent and skincare. Using a unique base blend of light esters and low alcohol, our Soie de Parfums are, as their name suggests, silken perfumes. They offer the advantage of alcohol’s radiance and the slow release of scent you find in pure oil perfumes. Their viscosity is almost the same as alcohol perfume and leaves no oily trace. We suggest applying them to pulse points such as behind the ears and nape of neck for maximum effect.
We can ship worldwide without the restrictions regular, alcohol-based perfumes face.
Olentium’s ‘Ritual Spa’ line is the ultimate face and body care to nurture your skin. Our capsule skincare range takes inspiration from the rhythm of a Mediterranean summer’s day and is laced with our signature scent of neroli, orange blossom and rosa damascena.
We use bio-science actives extracted from Mediterranean botanicals such as olive, prickly pear, Sicilian orange and capers, and white and red grapes in fusion with deeply nourishing, time-honoured Mediterranean seed oils. Our formulations contain specific active ingredients to work on minimising the appearance of fine lines and hyperpigmentation and to hydrate and moisturise your skin.
Olentium Ritual & Renew Beauty Oil 12/24 is available early July 2021. Online store will be live soon.
Our Sea, Our Home
Olentium is based on the Maltese Archipelago on islands at the near centre of the Mediterranean. Once the crossroads of ancient shipping routes, the Maltese Islands have been influenced by Mediterranean cultures thousands of miles east and west. We draw inspiration for our formulas and fragrances from the islands’ roots, while the Mediterranean sea surrounding us inspires the wellness we seek to impart in each of our products.
We launch in summer 21 with our first Soie de Parfum- Neroli Nuda – a 15ml flacon of exquisite, luxe natural perfume and our first skincare product, Ritual & Renew Beauty Oil 12/24 with its 12 nourishing oils and designed for day and night use.
