Taking inspiration from a fragrance by Laurent Segretier, Flash Back by Olfactive Studio is a vivacious, piquant fragrance. The inclusion of rhubarb in the head notes is meant to evoke childhood memories of rhubarb tart, and accompanied by notes of juicy citrus fruits the effect is intoxicating. Light spiciness from pink peppercorns in the middle notes counters this citrus opening and leads the fragrance towards a more mellow, comforting dry down. With cedar and vetiver in the base, Flash Back has a voluptuous and woody character, lent added intrigue and depth through the inclusion of warming amber and musk.
Top: Rhubarb, Grapefruit, Orange
Middle: Pink Pepper, Granny Smith Apple
Base: Vetiver, Cedar, Amber, Musk
Olfactive Studio is a bold and contemporary fragrance house. Launched in 2011 after founder Céline Verleure sourced inspiration for the brand name, packaging, and overall design from her online community of followers, Olfactive Studio seeks to relate perfumery with that most visual of art forms, photography. Collaboration is key to Olfactive Studio’s ethos, and Verleure has drawn together some of the world’s best photographers and paired them with world renowned perfumers to create fragrances that take images as their muse. With distinguished artists such as Luc Lapôtre, Clémence René-Bazin, and Frédéric Lebain teaming up with celebrated noses like Nathalie Lorson, Dorothée Piot, and Dora Arnaud, the resulting fragrances are surprising, intriguing, and effortlessly chic.
