Brand Olfactive Studio
Despite its name, drawn like all the Olfactive Studio fragrances from the vocabulary of photography, this life is anything but still. It’s more like the life of the party!
Inspired by Frédéric Lebain’s playful picture of mirror balls, party streamers and confetti (a print is included in the box), the young, up-and-coming perfumer Dora Arnaud has concocted a sparkling cocktail. Playing on the natural affinities of citrus and pepper – they share lemon-y facets --, she livens up the flavorful Japanese yuzu fruit with a blend of three peppers including the rare and precious Sichuan pepper, for a stunningly original cool-hot contrast. Dark rum turns up the heat in the base notes, anchored with dry, woody facets.
This fiery, fizzy cocktail is just begging to be translated into a drink, but as a stunningly original new take on citrus, it’s also a fabulous “energy drink” for your nose! Spritz on and dance the night away.

Smells like green tea and honey. It’s different from most mainstream scents. Leans a bit feminine for me though.
Excellent: I would definitely buy from you again
