French niche line Olfactive Studio will launch Still Life in Rio, the brand's ninth fragrance.
Olfactive Studio presents Still Life in Rio. A new setting, a new objective and a new fragrance that doesn’t live in the shadow of Still Life, but shines on its own.
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. The eyes are treated to a unique view of the bay. Taken by Brazilian photographer Flavio Veloso, the picture captures Rio’s beauty at that special moment when the sky ignites and spreads its golden shroud. At dawn, he ventured to the emblematic Corcovado where the majestic statue of Christ stands. The picture was snapped from the viewing platform at the peak. A moment in time that conveys strength and fullness.
Still Life in Rio is a vibrant scene that depicts awakening. The elements unfurl, striking a pleasant balance, skirting the water, skirting the skin. A landscape with hypnotic boulders forming a myriad of tiny islands, including the familiar Sugarloaf; the enticing waters of Guanabara Bay; unparalleled light; the gentle presence of plant life and city peaks; reflections rippling across the stone balcony whence this view was sourced. The dawning, the beginning of each material.
[...] While the art of light shines through this new creation, this sunny perfume is best described in terms of starlight, the primeval flicker.
Exotic and luminous, Still Life in Rio is a new and unique scent that opens with Yuzu, ginger, mint and lemon essence. It blossoms and heats up with a blend of peppers, Jamaican hot peppers and coconut water, finishing with rum and Brazilian Copaiba essences.
Additional notes include white leather accord.
Olfactive Studio Still Life in Rio was developed by perfumer Dora Baghriche (Arnaud). It will be available in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
