Olympic Orchids Perfumes was established in 2010 as a line of handcrafted fragrances inspired by the incredible variety of scents produced by orchid flowers and created by Ellen Covey, owner of Olympic Orchids orchid nursery in Seattle. The Olympic Orchids signature line was inspired by different species of orchids, but our offerings have expanded to include a variety of luxury perfumes that range from classical in style to highly experimental. These regular lines are joined by several Special Editions and 100% natural perfumes.

All of our fragrances are made using the highest quality ingredients with a high percentage of essential oils, absolutes, tinctures, and other natural materials. All products are formulated to be on the high end of their concentration range. Parfum is 25-33% fragrance materials and eau de parfum is 15-25%. All of our bottles are refillable and recyclable, and packaging is made from recycled materials and is biodegradable.

If you’re not sure about what you would like, you can try individual samples, build-your-own sample packs and discovery sets, or a subscription series that sends sets of seasonally-appropriate scents 4 times a year. We pride ourselves on having one of the best sampling programs around.
