Olfactive Studio Flash Back Perfume by Olfactive Studio, Crafted by Olivier Cresp with inspiration from an eponymous photograph by Laurent Segretier, Olfactive Studio Flash Back is a unisex fragrance with a woody-citrus accord released in 2013.
The scent opens with tart rhubarb and fresh orange, blending into delicious Granny Smith apple and pink pepper, all atop a powdery, warm base of amber, cedar and musk. Like the eponymous photograph by Laurent Segretier, printed on the packaging, that inspired Cresp, this fragrance has a particular vivid, yet ethereal, character to it that impresses on the senses and invokes a feeling of reminiscence.
Olfactive Studio was launched by Celine Verleure in 2011 to breach new territory in the world of perfumes. Verleure envisioned a perfume design house that also acts as a photography studio. Each product launched by the brand is a work of both visual and olfactory art, as a photographer creates a portrait invoking a concept, then a perfumer draws upon that portrait to create the final fragrance.
