Celine Verleure of Olfactive Studio
One of the most creative minds in niche perfumery today is Céline Verleure of Olfactive Studio. Sometimes perfume bloggers are not unlike talent scouts; we discover emerging niche perfume brands before mainstream media and the general public (in our case in 2009 before the 2011 launch). Every so often we spot a perfume house that we believe in so much that we champion it before the buzz. Today, after much hard work Céline created a brand that is sold worldwide at high end niche perfumeries and specialty stores; breaking through the clutter of so many smell alike… look alike perfumes. This is an industry where “imitations” abound and there have been those who try to copy her unique vision of combining photography with fragrance, but cannot achieve the same result.
Coming soon CLOSE UP
Over the past two years, I have wondered why so many flacons suddenly look like Olfactive Studio and the answer is simple; stock bottles that are available to anyone. It is now time for Olfactive Studio to change to an exclusive new bottle for the next fragrance launch (September 2016) and for the existing fragrances in 2017-2018. To finance the costly glass mold (US$25,000 for each size), Céline Verleure decided to create a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.com (the largest international site) With each donation of $35 and more Céline Verleure will send a gift of thanks. I know our readers love Olfactive Studio so let’s help by clicking here.
I am personally donating $1 for every comment with your thoughts on the new bottle, your favorite Olfactive Studio fragrance up to $75 for every comment left on our site through June 5, 2016. Excuse me while I spray on my happy fragrance Still Life in Rio. If we reach 45 comments a random winner will reveive the gift and will be contacted and announced
