Olfactive inspiration

Nebula photographs, outer space and synesthesia (vision to smell).

How to translate the atmosphere of a nebula in a fragrance?
Through a synesthetic process, Oliver immersed himself in hislaboratory, exploring a wide palette of raw materials to link the colors and texture of each nebula into olfactive notes: fiery red -> saffron and red champaca, electric blue -> metallic notes, white -> aldehydes and anise, to name a few.
