"Still Life" in Rio or the Peaceful Life
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.
A visual ballet spawns poetic emotion. Rio awakens… This ever-renewing impetus is what Still Life in Rio seeks to capture: a vibrant and expanding perfume that promises a day full of light and motion.
Prior to falling in love with the perfumer profession and her training at ISIPCA, Dora Baghriche had dreams of writing and becoming senior field reporter.
Imbued with Mediterranean warmth, Dora spent her childhood between two cities and two cultures: Alger and Paris. With both her grandmothers being pastry chefs, she developed a passion for indulgence. She inherited an olfactory memory of pine nut crème, cinnamon treats, and a waft of almonds.
Dora's curiosity and fanciful mind have led her to meet many aspiring artists whose eclecticism she admires. Many of her friends are musicians, filmmakers, and actors from all walks of life. Her own geographic itinerary is varied and expansive: from the Mediterranean scrublands to the landscapes of Asia, with a stop-off in New York where she once lived and learned much.
Flávio Veloso is a young Brazilian photographer who specialized in nature shots during his numerous trips in Brazil. Passionate about walking through the parks of Rio de Janeiro, he knew from an early age that photography would hold an important place in his life. He earned a degree in biology, another vantage point for viewing nature.
Now a professional photographer, he lives in Florianopolis and does photo-reportage in lush Brazilian forests while also expanding his collection of artistic photographs, which he regularly exhibits in galleries.
