Benzoin Siam, Incense, Musks
Oakmoss, Cedarwood, Vetiver
A photograph showing a tiny, solitary figure on the banks of a gently rippling lake reflecting the cloudy skies above: how does an image like that make you feel? The answer is as uniquely yours as the smell of your skin. For Nathalie Lorson, the perfumer of “Autoportrait”, it triggered a sense of space and serenity, which in turn influenced the perfume’s composition. “Autoportrait” is a simple fragrance, a bit of citric effervescence up top, the cozy, sweet warmth of benzoin laced through with calming incense in the middle and the grounding, dark shade of moss and cedar in the base. An elegant, cleaned-up vetiver floats over the entire structure like the wings of a guardian angel. And because of its refined simplicity, “Autoportrait” allows your own skin to fill in the empty dots, making the fragrance a true personal aura.
The small speck of human existence in the photo acts like an anchor for the eye and for the ever revolving immensity of the universe. It is a declaration of existence: small yet there, insignificant in the grand scheme of things yet leaving its imprint. And so is perfume: a declaration of existence and a reflection of personality.
Olfactive Studio is an encounter between contemporary artistic photography and perfumery; between the eye and the nose. This is the first time ever that perfumers have teamed up with photographers to draw inspiration from their oeuvres. They sense the images to capture their essence.
Photography and perfume capture the moment and rekindle the memory of past experiences. Imagining a sensorial, intimate, and poetic relationship between images and scents is to reconcile temporal spaces.
Elegant and unconventional modernity emanates from this wonderful alchemy. Olfactive Studio designs an exceptional olfactory world with a powerful and distinctive personality; a world of intuitions and emotions; a world designed for women, men, and all others. The perfumes are angels; they have no gender, but they have a soul.
