Half-baked...
Still Life by Olfactive Studio opens with a catchy citrus-fizzy note, a bit plain but lively and zesty, with silky and slightly creamy neroli/orange nuances, then an odd sort of greenish-mossy “warm” accord, a bit metallic and a bit salty (calone?) with a sort of sweaty-shady substance but at the same time fruity, which I can not really identify (I read the scent shall contain notes of galbanum, elemi, spices, perhaps the way the three of them are elaborated creates this weird soup-ish accord - especially because of galbanum). Finally, sandalwood and resinous notes on the base. I don’t get the boozy note, at least not that clear. Overall, despite the peculiar opening, the scent quickly turns into a quite conventional and mono-dimensional fragrance with no particular interest whatsoever, basically a fizzy citrus-green scent with spices, floral nuances, resinous-ambery-woody notes and overall sweet-creamy texture – a sweet Oriental, in short. The only variation which may still keep your attention alive is “that” odd accord, which won’t go away for quite a while, providing a (to me) fairly unpleasant metallic-sweaty-salty nuance, halfway spicy and rotten with an odd, warm fruity feel. Not that far from some 1990’s masculine scents, the spicy-sweet ones, almost smelling like a sort of half-creative, half-insulting cut & paste collage of some key notes like citrus, woods, spices, resins. Intriguing at first (just to see “where it is going”), then (once you realise it’s basically going nowhere) a bit boring and unsubstantial, yet overall not that bad. Fun to try if you have the chance to.

Bright and Inviting Green Citrus
Olfactive Studio STILL LIFE opens white and bright and as a matter of fact LUMIERE BLANCHE would have been an excellent name for this composition! Once it settles a bit, the green citrus presents itself front and center. I was attempting to guess the notes and decided that it must be petit grain. According to the hierarchy, what I'm "really" detecting is yuzu and galbanum. That's okay: the important point is: green citrus.

STILL LIFE smells very nice for what it is and I believe that it is stronger than the other members of this series, an impression which is confirmed by the 77% alcohol content as opposed to 80% listed for all of the others. The overall effect is similar to my nose to compositions such as Banana Republic W or Bond no 9 EAU DE NEW YORK, although this particular green citrus appears not to contain any flowers whatsoever. In the drydown I am able to detect the elemi and pepper as well, which sets this creation further apart from the floral citrus crowd.

Overall, STILL LIFE is a fine and refreshing unisex scent. Probably best for spring and summer, though it could certainly be worn in cold weather to lift one's spirits!
