A close up on Olfactive Studio's new fragrance.
Is it an eye wide open or a miniature world replete with its lands and oceans? The iris world map oscillates between the globe of an eye and a planetary globe. The heart speeds up as a result of the “Close Up effect.” The image is so zoomed in that we could almost touch it, smell it even. Close Up makes this wish come true. An entire universe unfurls itself in a lavish array of olfactory details. One note evokes confidence. A descent into the intimate ensues.
CLOSE UPEAU DE PARFUM
From the inner self to the outside world, from the smallest to the largest, the composition of Close Up revels in contrast and the oscillation between opposites.
Intense and contrasting, the amber tones combine with a freshness. It has a full bodied character that blends seamlessly with anise and green coffee. Zooming in even closer, each ingredient gains in intensity and distinctness

ANNICK MENARDO @FIRMENICH
Annick Menardo was born in Cannes. She inherited a green thumb and an innate attraction to scents. Annick views creation as a solitary pursuit. Her pleasure emerges and broadens as the perfume takes shape. Balancing each detail, pursuing excellence, pushing ideas to their farthest reaches, and hitting just the right target… Cultivated and instinctive, the artistic aspect of the field is what appealed to her. As precise as she is creative, what matters to her is the perfume's identity, that added element of soul that makes it truly unique.
