Vanilla Shot was launched in 2018. The nose behind this fragrance is Bertrand Duchaufour.

The first of the Sepia Collection, a bold trio of Parfum Extraits from legendary perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour, Vanilla Shot is an extraordinary scent. Inspired by a photograph of a breathtaking Land Art sculpture from Martin Hill- an arch made of dry reeds suspended weightlessly above New Zealand's Wanaka Lake- Duchaufour delivers an equally gravity-defying fragrance that contrasts the deep, indulgent richness of pure vanilla with intensely fresh elements for a luminously oriental experience. 

Our expectations for a vanilla scent are disposed of almost instantly, as Vanilla Shot opens with a stimulating jolt of electric spice- coriander and saffron, supplemented with an ultra-clean aldehyde sparkle. But as with Hill's photograph, balance is paramount, and before our fragrance gets carried into the clouds a rich heart of dried fruit, warm opoponax, and fresh rose tethers us again to the land, hinting of depth yet to come. Against this deeply sensual contrast, we encounter a rich base of complex, creamy vanilla and sweet, warm resins, soothing and seducing even while the fresh elements continue to reach skyward, achieving a wondrous, poetic geometry that lingers for hours. A new high water mark for Olfactive Studios, Vanilla Shot is a unique, compelling accomplishment a world away from your typical vanilla fragrance.
