The Studio

The concept

Olfactive Studio is an encounter between contemporary artistic photography and perfumery; between the eye and the nose. This is the first time ever that perfumers have teamed up with photographers to draw inspiration from their oeuvres. They sense the images to capture their essence.

Photography and perfume capture the moment and rekindle the memory of past experiences. Imagining a sensorial, intimate, and poetic relationship between images and scents is to reconcile temporal spaces.

«Perfumer’s proofs», born out of the spontaneous and free emotions of perfume creators who have carte blanche when it comes to photography, prove to be genuine olfactory concepts. These original, never-smelled-before olfactory creations with strong personalities are made with very beautiful raw materials and come in Eau de parfum versions (12 to 18%) or Extraits de parfum (20%) without price constraints. Elegant and unconventional modernity emanates from this wonderful alchemy. Olfactive Studio has designed an exceptional olfactory world with a powerful and distinctive personality; a world of intuitions and emotions; a world designed for women, men, and all others. Perfumes are angels; they have no gender, but they have a soul.

Together, talented perfumers and photographers have created Autoportrait (2011), Chambre Noire (2011), Still Life (2011), Lumière Blanche (2012), Flash Back (2013), Ombre Indigo (2014), Panorama (2015), Selfie (2015), Still LIfe in Rio (2016), Close Up (2016) and Woody Mood (2017)...

Olfactive Studio was launched in Paris in September 2011 and is now enjoying great success in over 30 countries on all continents. Hooray for artistic intuition, pleasure, and the desire to create. Hooray for quality and generosity.

The Creative Team

Natacha Rousseau

Natacha Rousseau likes passionate people, complicity, unusual projects, self-critique, stunning images, one-liners, beautiful objects and punctuation… To take an artistic universe and enrich it with new graphic meaning, or to challenge oneself to start from a tabula rasa and create a world around a product or a project… is a true gift for a graphic designer! Natacha Rousseau and Céline have been working together for over 5 years, always in dialogue mode, joyful, stressed, happy, but never interrupted! Natacha Rousseau did all the graphic design for Olfactive Studio, from the press kit to the web site.

Clotilde Maisonneuve

Clotilde Maisonneuve and Sophie Noguès founded the Madecos agency in 2003. Their role is to lend support to brands and other projects in terms of product development. The poetry of Madecos is industry. Their inspiration comes from oil and sludge. Glasswork, injection, printing, embossing, marking… such variety, such curiosity, is all in a day’s work for Madecos. Their source of motivation is the diversity of concepts and products. Each project is an adventure; every production brings fulfillment. Marrying a rigorous approach with a sunny disposition, their real passion lies in the hidden face of the product. Clotilde Maisonneuve took the reins of the entire development and fabrication of Olfactive Studio's lines.

Camille Toupet

After completing Fashion and Marketing studies, first at the ESMOD Fashion School and then at Fit in New York, Camille Toupet chose to specialize in accessory design. Upon returning to Paris, she dreamed of jewelry. So she opened her own design studio and collaborated with Dinh Van to create the "Seventies" line. The instant success of the line opened her the doors to the mythical world of jewelry. Today, Camille Toupet expresses her creative talent and skills not only through jewelry but also through such diverse media as watch-making, accessories, fragrance bottle design, packaging and even display design. Camille Toupet contributed to the design of Olfactive Studio's fragrance bottle and packaging.
