Olfactive Studio is a new fragrance house that has created three fragrances inspired by three photographs. The three fragrances are Still Life, Chambre Noire and Autoportrait.
Each fragrance is named after the title of the photograph that inspired it.
Still Life was based on a photograph by Fréderic Lebain, and was composed by Dora Arnaud at Firmenich. The fragrance is described as ‘sparkling and festive’ and contains top notes of yuzu, elemi, and pink, black and sichuan peppers; the heart features star anise and galbanum, while the base contains dark rum, cedarwood and ambrox
Robertet’s Dorothée Piot was the perfumer behind Chambre Noire, which was based on a photograph by Clémence René-Bazin. Chambre Noire contains notes of schinus, jasmine, papyrus, violet, incense, prune, sandal, patchouli, musk, vanilla and leather.
Autoportrait, created by Nathalie Lorson of Firmenich, was based on an image by Luc Laporte. The fragrance, described as an ‘intimate and deep’ perfume contains top notes of bergamot and elemi; middle notes of benzoin, incense and musk; with a base of oakmoss, cedar and vetiver.
All three fragrances are available as 50ml and 100ml Eau de Parfum. More information can be found at olfactivestudio.com - which currently redirects to the facebook page ‘Le Blog du Parfum qui n’existe’ where this project began life.
