In 2011, when Creative Director Celine Verleure founded Olfactive Studio it was the first time ever that perfumers teamed up with photographers to draw inspiration from their oeuvres. They sense the images to capture their essence. Last year’s Panaroma, (a Best of Scent 2015) was an example of perfect synergy of contemporary artistic photography and perfumery The newest release Still Life in Rio (Or the Peaceful Life) pairs young Brazilian photographer FLÁVIO VELOSO with Dora Bagriche Arnaud of Firmenich ( who is also the perfumer Olfactive Studio Still Life 2011).
“A different approach to reflect the dual meaning of the term Still Life. On the one hand, it refers to a popular photography technique where light reigns supreme and whose intensity adorns the festive and bubbly fragrance that bears its name. On the other hand, it means peaceful life. Olfactive Studio sets its sights on the second meaning, and on Rio. Rio de Janeiro: the city of wonder, enveloping and magical. The Rio seen here sits beneath a dawn sky inciting contemplative serenity. This is the brand’s first experience of picking a destination, yet the approach remains staunchly photographic”.
