High end luxury Scents are often not used as comfort scents because they often don’t come across as everyday fragrances. The longevity and quality of them usually make them reserved for special occasions such as dress to impress and events. I do not wear Creed every day, nor do I wear Bond Number 9 or Tom Ford. When I discovered the fragrance Selfie, I wanted to find out if this really could be a comfort scent and still have all the qualities of a high end luxury fragrance. I think I found this in the new Olfactive Studio release.
Olfactive Studio is a fragrance company that creates new fragrance experiences based on a visual. The perfumers create their fragrance impressions using a beautiful photo. One of the notes that drew me in to this amazing fragrance is the maple syrup note. This is a true layer of comfort. Maple syrup is familiar and the inclination is to smell it often. I wore Selfie for a few days at work and this past thanksgiving and I was always drawn in by this maple syrup. The mysterious incense appeared and that note evoked a sense of wonder. Insense is a very unique and exotic note in fragrance that creates a great deal of depth. It inspires the imagination. It causes one to think and we all will get different impressions. My impression is that Selfie is sweet but not overly so but sweet enough to satisfy my passion for sweet scents.
Thomas Fontaine is a very talented perfumer. One of his great projects was to preserve Jean Patou fragrances to their original grandeur using today’s guidelines while keeping in check with the restrictions in the olfactive industry. Here in Selfie, Thomas created a very distinctive fragrance. This is a true original work of art. Selfie smells like nothing I’ve experienced before. Selfie is so unique that I cannot equate it to anything.
What is Selfie? It is a sense of self. It is taking a picture and seeing one’s personality through that picture. It is a glimpse of time where a snapshot of oneself was taken. It is the feeling during that snapshot that creates a sense of excitement. A Selfie is a glimpse of happiness during a moment in time. Every time I wear Selfie I think of a joyful moment and I keep wanting to smell this scent. I am very excited about the launch of the new
Olfactive Studio fragrance Selfie is premiering at Barneys. The fragrance retails for $195 for 100ml Eau De Parfum spray and the notes are as follows: ginger, star anise, elemi resin, incense and angelica; middle notes are cinnamon, maple sap, lily and cabreuva; base notes are suede, labdanum, styrax, patchouli, oakmoss, tonka bean and sandalwood.
This is a must have Fragrance. I enjoyed it immensely!
