Botanical illustrations, precious natural raw materials and extraordinary molecules.
The starting point of ILLUSTRATED SERIES is not a narrative or memory to be translated into each fragrance. The creative process itself becomes the lead. Oliver leaves out any preconceived idea on the results and focuses on the elements of the olfactive inspiration of the series. The idea is modifying, exploring with no creative bounds, giving a new identity to natural ingredients, within an abstract process, which can start on a natural essence, a botanical illustration, or the smell of a molecule.
Each fragrance includes an illustration created by Spanish artist Jose Manuel Hortelano. Hortelano interprets Oliver's olfactive fantasies through an image for every fragrance: pieces of visual, olfactory and emotional memories. From his fascination for laboratory instruments to the synthetic smells and the innocence of wild flowers.
