Olfactive Studio Elevates French Fragrance & Summer Spirits


Dear Wellness Seekers,

Olfactive Studio Elevates French Fragrance & Summer Spirits with a very creative and fresh take on perfume I discovered just in time to enjoy this summer. 

This is an experience that is nothing less than indulging. And when it comes to enhancing your mood with fragrance to feel your very best self, money is no object. We deserve it. However its hidden value is it must speak to you on multiple levels. You will know best if after ‘trying it on’, you walk away to let a fragrance wash over you over a period of time. Ask yourself – How has this scent affected me? How do I feel? Give it a couple of days to see if it still speaks to you with positive energy.

My world went aglow when I came upon this fantastic Collection Olfactive Studio from Paris, France. It is a tour de force so compelling I just had to explore it because of its Spa Chic sensibility. I was particularly attracted to Autoportrait. The story and the scent speak to me so I tried it and love it.

You can explore the website but remember to click on English because unless you are proficient in French. Here is their brand back story I LOVE so much.

Olfactive Studio was launched in Paris in September 2011 and is now enjoying great success in over 25 countries on all continents. Hooray for artistic intuition, pleasure, and the desire to create. Hooray for quality and generosity.

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.

«Perfumer’s proofs», born out of the spontaneous and free emotions of perfume creators who have carte blanche when it comes to photography, prove to be genuine olfactory concepts. These original, never-smelled-before olfactory creations with strong personalities are made with very beautiful raw materials and come in Eau de parfum versions (12 to 18%) without price constraints. Elegant and unconventional modernity emanates from this wonderful alchemy. Olfactive Studio has designed 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. Perfumes are angels; they have no gender, but they have a soul.

Together, talented perfumers and photographers have created Autoportrait, Chambre Noire, Still Life, Lumière Blanche, Flashback, and Ombre Indigo.

Olfactive Studio Elevates French Fragrance & Summer Spirits is worthy of experiencing this summer. When is comes to selecting a new scent, listen closely to what your heart tells you – ignore what others say, although compliments are always worth noting, choosing a fragrance is all about you.

If you feel more alive, more feminine, happier, sexier, more confident – the scent is embodying Self Care and Emotional Wellbeing. If nothing comes to mind – move on to another one. When it comes to choosing a fragrance to enjoy listen to you heart and body – it will guide you to something your will enjoy thoroughly for a long period of tie. My French grandmother was right about this.

That is how I feel about Autoportrait  – it is defined as ‘A Self Portrait May Be The Answer To This Equation In One Unknown: The Self. It is elevating my Summer to another level.’  That is a perfect fit for Spanista.

Let me know what you think if you try it too. Enjoy your Summer.

To Your Self Care Journey To Joy,
