Chypre Shot by Olfactive Studio is bold and original. A powerful chypre accord with character – thanks to oakmoss and patchouli – complemented by black pepper and coffee with the softness of peony.
This perfume is a great addition as collection from Olfactive Studio: SEPIA. The first three Extraits de Parfums are a collaboration between perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour and English sculptor and photographer Martin Hill, the artist behind the photographs in which the perfumes find their inspiration.
The photograph to inspire Chypre Shot: on a bed of moss on Mount Taranaki, a nod to the oak moss that dominates the perfume, we see a circle of volcanic stones, colorful in a misty world…. the visual equivalent of an immersive, mysterious chypre accord.

Where contemporary, artistic photographers and talented perfumers meet for a cross-fertilization of their work, under the inspiring leadership of Céline Verleure. Photography and scent both capture a moment and revive your memories. This collaboration results in a sensory and poetic relationship between image and perfume. The scents are born from the inspiration that the noses draw from photographs. The result: a beautiful line-up of fragrances, all elegant, stylish, and modern.
A classic chypre is characterized by top notes of citrus, often bergamot; a full-floral heart, like jasmine and rose; and mossy, woody notes in the base, such as patchouli, oak moss, and labdanum. For those who appreciate fragranced complexity and layered compositions, chypres are very exciting and worthwhile to explore!
