Olóyè (African Emperor) is an olfactory art piece; an olfactive interpretation of Abela’s perspective of the boisterous edge of African chiefdoms.
By interpretation, Olóyè means “the African Emperor” or “The Titled One”. It tells the story of the artist’s views on Africa’s leadership; past, and present whilst expressing her anticipation for the future of African leadership. Olóyè as a conceptual fragrance embodies the essence of African chieftains and royals. It pays homage to the Legends of Africa and curates their majestic effluence depicted in ancient history.
Olóyè recognizes the historical influence of a wide range of African kings, queens chiefs, and legendary leaders from across the African continent. It captures the grandiose yet projective power, pride, piety, boldness, and tenacity of Africa’s chiefdoms. It subtly endears emotions toward the future of African leadership as one with a strong impact on global affairs.
