Olfactive Studio was created by Céline Verleure. Born in France, near Chambord, Céline dreamed of being an architect. Having taken up studies in Marketing, she gave up on building houses, but this opened her the doors to the Kenzo House.
Pierre Broc, the creator of Kenzo fragrances, instilled in her the passion for fragrance and taught her the art of perfume design. At 28, she created Kenzo Jungle with perfumers Dominique Ropion and Jean-Louis Sieuzac and then L'Eau par Kenzo with Olivier Cresp.
After that, she launched Osmoz.com for perfume aficionados, based on an original idea by Firmenich. Then, after working a few years at L'Oréal, she decided to launch the "Blog for the Fragrance that doesn't (yet) exist!" to tempt fate and give birth to a new brand of fragrances, thanks to the collective intuitions of an online community.
Olfactive Studio is the first collection of perfumes that gives curious and passionate Internet users a step-by-step glimpse into the behind-the-scenes of perfume creation as well as a voice on artistic choices, making them the ambassadors of the brand.
It is an encounter between contemporary artistic photography and perfumery; between the eye and the nose. The brand stands at the crossroads of a photographic studio and a perfume design studio.
This is the first time ever that perfumers have teamed up with photographers to draw inspiration from their oeuvres. "Perfumers' proofs" are born out of the perfume creator's emotions invoked by the picture and have proved to be authentic and original olfactory creations.
They take us from a world where perfumes are harvested to one where time is captured.
