When two friends understand each other totally, the words are soft and strong like an orchid’s perfume.

In Thailand orchid oil is often an option as a massage oil when you book a health massage. The oil is home-made and not available commercially. Many times I have tried to buy the orchid oil but with no success. I love the texture and the comforting scent.
However there is a US company Olympic Orchids Artisan Perfumes that specialises in orchid scents like Golden Cattleya, Javanica and Red Cattleya. I have yet to experience their scents but others have. You can read more about this Orchid Perfume House below.
Do you know you to make Orchid Oil? Or maybe you have bought this in Thailand or another country?

Hey there Jordan,
You should DEFINITELY try the Olympic Orchid scents because they’re out of this world. Nothing like them anywhere and Ellen Covey the perfumer is a darling. Prices are very reasonable too.
Been on a long search for Orchid oil or perfume. Keen to try Gujarat too. Dr Ellen sounds amazing, a Chemosensory Neuroscientist who metamorphosized into a Perfumer.
