Olor Fragrances – Review


I admit I am not into fragrances but my recent experience with Olor is starting to change my mind. I prefer deodorants over perfumes and I am especially partial towards affordable ones that deliver. Just like with makeup I don’t think bare necessities should be so expensive particularly since the ingredients are not all that expensive to begin with. Read on to find out how Olor fragrances carved a permanent place in my vanity.

Product Claims

Long lasting freshness which restores the feeling of beauty. 24 hours active deodorant.



What Do I Think?

Olor Pakistan kindly sent me three of their new fragrances to try out and boy, am I glad they did. Olor is originally a Norwegian brand and I have never heard of it before. The first thing that popped into my head was that these bottles (150 mL) seem more compact than deos I normally encountered. The cap is not terribly secure but with a good quality nozzle head there really is no chance of leakage. It releases a fine mist so all’s good. I don’t know about 24 hours but it does last all day long in this mild weather.

Onto the flavors! I detest “fruity fresh” scents, which often smell like fake artificial fruity chews or “citrus scents”, which straight up smell like Lemon Max *Not even kidding*. The “flowery” scents are overpoweringly sweet and unbearable and musk has felt suffocating since I was a kid. Imagine my relief when Olor fragrances beat the odds and won my heart. These are perfect! Since I am completely ignorant in the science of fragrance making, please bear with my descriptions.

Rosy Raspberry (Raspberry & Vanilla)


Let’s start with my favorite of these three: Rosy Raspberry. Raise your hands if you sniff berries before you eat them *Shoots hand in the air*. I think I want to drown in a bath full of this deodorant. You detect rose lingering in the background cut with a fresh tang of berry. Then there is something yummy thrown in which is obviously vanilla that mingles with the rose. All I can say is you must smell this before you die.

Vibrant Violet (Iris & Blackcurrant)


This one is the relatively subtle of the three. The iris flower and blackcurrant berry wonderfully complement each other and you can clearly scent them both here. It is really beautiful, feminine and slightly sharp. If you are a fan of light floral scents, you will love this one.

Glamorous Gold (Lilac & Amber)


Judging by my body’s reaction to this one, it errs towards “musky”. It’s heavy, spicy and not very floral. It’s quite balanced and I am sure most of you will love it for a night out.

I checked out the other fragrances in this range and found some of my favorite scents that I mostly don’t find in deodorants. So, I will be getting some more this summer. This is a good budget buy that you just cannot go wrong with.
