By dedicating a fragrance to this photographic vertigo, Olfactive Studio has effectively played the self-portrait card, version 2.0, taking ownership of today’s egotistical desire to leave one’s trace, be it olfactory or visual. The mirror on the bottle reflects but one image: yours, in exactly the portrait you decide it should reflect. An image that looks like you, only, it aims to surprise.
This is a full-bodied fragrance with original head notes. It captures the moment and sanctifies the instant. It is a playful perfume that can blow you away and that cultivates a bit of mystery. It seeks not perfection, adopting rather a confident, opportunistic, crafty and affable identity. Smile! You’re perfumed!
SELFIEEAU DE PARFUM
Bewitching and addictive, Selfie is the fragrance of a comforting staging of self; the spectacle of a constantly renewed surprise.
Its character comes from the striking animal accord evoking suede (styrax) as well as its chypre notes.
Cozy notes of maple syrup with sparkles of spices, resin, sandalwood and tonka bean, put Selfie in a class of its own.

Selfie: Extreme Personalization!
Olfactive Studio has opted not to feature an inspirational picture on the packaging since the inspiration for Selfie is you!
A mirror on the packaging immediately reflects your image… Mirror, mirror on the wall, am I the fairest of them all?
