Warm and Enveloping
Warm, warming, enveloping perfumes. Spices and vanilla, silk and cashmere, flowers, honey, and balsams.
1) Shiny Amber is sunshine in a bottle. A perfume about summer warm, about glowing resins and sunlight, hidden in the depths of ancient fossilized amber. The warm dense heart amber accord is surrounded by bright, sweet citruses and honeylike flowers. Its main amber accord has been composed with two types of amber: “vegetable amber” – sweet resins of different plants, and “animal amber” — genuine ambergris (here I used tinctured beach-harvested ambergris from New Zealand)
The aroma is shimmering with all shades of amber, it warms and relaxes.
If dubbed, the perfume comes as a rich and dense amber scent with a bright, sweet start. Eau de parfum in spray-form is airy, light, and very warm, like a cashmere-silk shawl.

Bitter orange, frankincense, black pepper, coffee, cocoa, jasmine, roses, vanilla, sandalwood, labdanum, vetiver
3) My vanilla — this woody-balsamic perfume is not about cookies and buns at all. Anti-culinary vanilla, it tells stories of winds from afar, of ship planks, of spices and ardent heat of sand in the sun. Jasmine, orange blossom and ylang-ylang create an impression of intoxicating aroma of tropical forest in bloom. Juniper berries and cedars suggest the presence of barrels of rum somewhere around. Dark caramel, resins, tar, fruits, leather – all those edges of vanilla’s smell which is often ignored by culinary aficionados.
It starts bright and spicy, blossoming with heat, gives warmth in the cold, invigorates, and inspires.
Black pepper, clove, galbanum, elemi, juniper berry, nutmeg, jasmine, cumin, orange blossom, cardamom, cedarwood, vanilla, tonka bean, sandalwood, orris, agarwood

5) Fallen Leaves — an autumn woody-balsamic perfume. Fallen leaves, slowly becoming nothing, almost devoid of festive colors of golden autumn, humid air, an occasional and already a bit cold ray of the late autumn sun, sharp smell of cooling down earth, anguish, and hope, while seeing-off warmth.
This perfume will bring nostalgia to ones and calm the others, reconciling them with inevitably approaching winter.

Cistus, frankincense, myrrh, tonka beans, hops, everlasting, Himalayan cedar, patchouli, cardamom, iris, vanilla.
6) Winter Blush is a story of winter joys – to redden strolling in a frozen park, to warm up with mulled wine, to eat an orange while it snows outside. The perfume starts with a bright accord of oranges; it blossoms with flowers, gets a little spicy with nuances of hard liquors, and ends with a balsamic-woody base, warm and dry. There, one can find a sea of roses as well as piquancy of spices and the soft glow of thick winter wines.
The smell of Winter Blush is a miracle cure for depression any time of day, be it in a morning started on the wrong foot or at a party when all of a sudden, you find yourself a little sad with no reason at all. In the cold Winter Blush’s flowers hesitate to show up, but as soon as you get into the warm, it’s bright scarlet flowers bloom in all their glory.
A wise choice for a celebration or a party.

Set of 7 samples: A Ghost House, Hue (City if the Dead Kings), Emerald Green. Venetian Red, Dark Side of the Goddess, Petals&Ashes, Nigredo.
1) Emerald Green is a bitter avant-garde perfume dedicated to the color of the same name. Sharp with icy sides and aromatic herbs. A bright floral heart of jasmine, orange blossom and lotus flower softly shines through boozy notes with absinth and herbs. The fond is dark, dense and mossy.
A very cold perfume, it tinkles with ice in the cold, blooms with flowers in humid air; and when it’s warm the foresty, mossy base is especially delicious.
Bitter almond, absinthe, cognac, galbanum, angelica seed, juniper, violet leaf, jasmine, orange blossom, white lotus, clove, cardamom, frankincense, sandalwood, labdanum, oakmoss, myrrh.
2) The dark side of the Goddess – a dark balsamic gothic perfume.
A story of dark side of soul, of what is covered by shadow. Smoke of sacral fire, hidden splashes of jasmine, humid earth, incense, backwoods. Ansinth, olibanum and spices are dizzying and sharpen perception. Jasmine, mimosa, tagetes smell dense and heady mixed with dark resins. The woody-balsamic base is dark and deep.
It is a perfume for meditation, for seclusion, a good companion to travel the dark pathways of one’s soul.
Myrtle, bay, cassia, nutmeg, frankincense, jasmine, tagetes, cedarwood, sandalwood, patchouli, myrrh.
3) Hue - an aromatic portrait of the city of Hue, the ancient capital of Vietnam. All the shades of grey stones and plaster. Grey bark of trees and pipals painted cream with spots of fungi and lichens. Bluish-white porcelain chips of mosaicked walls. Ancient roof-tiles, once terracotta, are all green now with moss. The green of leaves, of grass, of water plants, green of pond water, bright flowers of water hyacinth and sacred blue lotus. The carmine of old pagodas, wood of garden houses dark with time, bluish-green sides of huge incense burners, whitish-grey smoke of burning incense leaving soot on stone walls.
It is a very strange perfume, maybe the most difficult for understanding of all the others in the regular collection. First of all because it is more a portrait then a perfume. It’s very lasting, with noticeable sillage and troubled character. To feel the atmosphere of the place, even make things hyper realistic it’s better to wear the perfume in hot and humid weather. Then it works magic.
Mango leaf, violet leaf, seaweed, elemi, choya nakh, choya loban, choya ral, kewda, hop, jasmine, frangipani, pink lotus, juniper, rose, lavender, frankincense, agarwood, angelica, labdanum, oakmoss, patchouli, vetiver, mitti attar, sandalwood, saffron, myrrh.
4) Ghost house -a woody-balsamic perfume made specially for wearing in the mid-autumn.
This is a story about an old wooden house, with thick soft dust, creaky floorboards and winding stairs. Wind blowing through a broken window leaf touches the strings of an old grand piano, making them tremble soundly with sadness. Old coarsened bindings tightly hold pages, dry-cured by the adamant time. A blooming bush of wild roses in the autumn garden.
Cistus, frankincense, cassia, rose, patchouli, choya loban, agarwood, Guaiac wood, vetiver.
5) Venetian Red is a perfume dedicated to this pigment. The pigment is a darker shade of scarlet, derived from nearly pure ferric oxide. Red like blood, warm and totally enjoyable.
The perfume is a travel along dark narrow streets of a very old town, along slippery with slime and algae canal banks, along low seashores often submerged, when the sea breeze is chilly-fresh, the stones are cold and all the wood around is dried and tarred. The only tender thing on your way will be the red color of sudden rose petals added as a counterpoint.
Cold weather pulls forward the woody base, and the rose, as it should be, steps out only when it’s warm.
Seaweed, ambergris, nutmeg, neroli, rose, orange blossom, jasmine, oakmoss, patchouli, labdanum, angelica.
6) Nigredo - a thick woody-balsamic perfume. It is the soul of the dark, nature’s deep sleep, hidden movements of a soul. Melt and patterned they form a kind of Materia Prima – the base of all matter, the quintessence.
Nigredo, or “blackness” is the first pathway to the philosophers’s stone, when all alchemical ingredients are cleansed and then cooked together to a uniform black matter.
The story about humus, the beginning of everything matter, the beginning of time: dense, thick, bitter-sweet, with very interesting ingredients – tuberose, boletus absotule, vanilla, patchouli, spikenard, ciperus, green pepper and cognac oil.
Elemi, spikenard, frankincense, cognac, tuberose, rose, osmanthus, mushrooms, agarwood, castoreum, orris, opoponax, vetiver, vanilla, patchouli, oakmoss.
7) Petals&Ashes is a perfume about eternal blooming of life withstanding inevitable flowing of time, about heaps of white petals and fragrant ashes. Softly shining white blossoms… Leaves and fruits are gently wrapped in aromatic smoke. Everything flows and the precious woods turn to ashes, ashes – to dust.
If you prefer a progressively developing aroma, it is better to get an EdP spray – you’ll get a bright fruity-floral accord slowly developing thin strands of fragrant smoke, when triumphant light of vegetative life unhurriedly fades to the smells of woods and rain-soaked earth.
On the contrary with perfume in splash form you’ll get everything at once – both petals and ashes, a pure drama of our lives, a culminating point.
Yuzu, neroli, rose, jasmine, tuberose, frankincense, sandalwood, labdanum, spikenard, mitti attar (earth attar), agarwood attar (shamama attar) myrrh, angelica root.
Perfume and curried leather are connected historically, and leather-themed fragrances have a long history. This collection is all about the smell of leather without any actual leather as an ingredient. It is about suede and leather, gloves and saddles… all kinds of leather and leather goods.
1) Cuir de Russie — “Russian Leather” is very traditional for the leather theme in perfumery. Real Russian leather is distinguished from any other by strictly required usage of Birch Tar in the process of oiling. Here in Cuir de Russie, you’ll find this magnificent, powerful smoky tar. This is leather in the raw. Tarry, with tobacco, wormwood, and castoreum. Universal leather.
It is a chypre with bright galbanum and bergamot start, a floral heart, and a marvelous base composed of oakmoss, sweet labdanum absolute, patchouli, and castoreum. Surrounded by tarry smoke, the flowers bloom — jasmine and roses, ylang-ylang and orange flower. And the smell of leather reminds of horses, harness, and autumn hunting.
The perfume is exquisite in any weather, but the warmer it is, the more tarry it will be.
Galbanum, lemon, bergamot, yuzu, absinthe, tar, orange blossom, rose de may, jasmine, ylang-ylang, carnation, tobacco, oakmoss, patchouli, labdanum, vetiver, Vanuatu sandalwood, ambrette, castoreum, ambergris.
2) The Second Skin — soft leather-gourmand chypre. The theme of leather here is played softly: no tar, no smoke, but the thick aromas of flowers, tobacco, and dried fruits are waving dense ornament instead. Quiet power, confidence, sudden touches, whispers, velvet skin- the perfume is extremely kinesthetic. It forms a cozy, protective cocoon around its wearer in nasty weather, that let him forget about the winter at all.
If sprayed, it shows more gourmand and flowery notes, and a greater sillage.
Bergamot, immortelle, carnation, tuberose, jasmine, ylang-ylang, orange blossom, rose, cassia, black tea, cognac, tobacco, vanilla, castoreum, white cedar, sandalwood, labdanum, oakmoss, patchouli, ambrette
3) Revenge — a modern urban leather perfume. Leather, asphalt of city streets, and exotic lilies in hot summer air. Sharp like destroying jealousy and bitter like unanswered passion.
It shows, more or less obediently, leather, some wormwood with flowers, and gasoline exhaust of a landaulet in summer city… But unpredictable happens, and it can draw you a sudden something, for example, a bouquet of lilies. Predatory tiger lilies wrapped in leather.
A perfume with many faces, it likes both heat and cold, seashore and desert sands, are a libre and scalding concrete jungle of a city.
Galbanum, wormwood, bergamot, estragon, neroli, jasmine, ylang-ylang, roses, white cedar, choya loban, tobacco, vanilla, labdanum, orris, oakmoss, patchouli, vetiver.
4) Young Cossack — is an aromatic leather chypre. The clopping of horse hooves, dust, smoke, steppe covered with thyme and absinthe. Heat haze, leather gloves, saddles and harness, tobacco and honey, flowering hawthorn hedge grow, - and the road again, with a reward - a long evening by the hearth - ahead.
A perfume-landscape, it has heroes – men and horses, as well as the vastness of flatlands, and a day-long passing of the sun in the sky. Surprisingly, but whole the story started off with an image of a sheaf of dry aromatic wormwood forgotten with a leather glove…
Wormwood, thyme, oregano, immortelle, vetiver, oakmoss - all the shades of brown and green.
Galbanum, absinthe, davana, tarragon, thyme, lavender, cumin, frankincense, immortelle, tobacco, vetiver, oakmoss, costus, agarwood.
5) Secret dreams — a leather perfume that opens the door of your inner private chamber. What desires or fears are kept hidden in the depth of a heart? What dreams slip away faster than could be clothed in words? A key on a leather string can open the room. Perfume can catch elusive dreams into its nets: leather, cognac, spices, dark woods.
Juniper, clove, black pepper, cumin, davana, cognac, tobacco, rose, osmanthus, cardamom, immortelle, castoreum, saffron, patchouli, oakmoss, myrrh, labdanum, cedarwood.
6) Tobacco Tuberose — a leather floral perfume. Green bitterness, milky-white flowers in a half-light of a library, soft clouds of tobacco smoke, cozy leather chairs, silence, and comfort.
It is tobacco, which surely leads in this duet. Warm and rich, the fragrance opens with bitter, slightly metallic green notes of violet leaves, they unfurl into a dim old cabinet with a library. The cabinet is full of curling flows of tobacco pipe aromatic smoke. Then leather appears, warm and tactile, and then a sudden gust of wind brings heady, almost narcotic smell from a tall, elegant bouquet of tuberoses. Try it on, find out who will lead on you – white flowers or tobacco-leather?
I advise you to choose chilly dull weather to wear this perfume — it warms and comforts in a most subtle and pleasant way.
Wormwood, cistus, violet leaf, frankincense, tuberose, tobacco, rose de may, sandalwood, angelica root, orris, agarwood.
My perfumes are all-natural artisan fragrances!
Anna Zworykina Perfumes is an artisan perfume house; creating hand-crafted perfumes exclusively of pure and natural essences for almost 15 years. I create my perfumes only with essential oils, co2 extracts, absolutes and my own plant tinctures. I have over 500 natural ingredients in my perfumery palette and select only the best quality perfumery materials.
No synthetic materials, no animal testing by me or my suppliers and no isolates.
REVIEWS FROM OUR CUSTOMERS AND PERFUME CRITICS:
Luca Turin is one of the most respected fragrance critics in the entire world: «I find Anna Zworykina‘ fragrances very impressive indeed, and largely immune from the mushiness of most natural perfumery. Wisely, she seems to stick to classical forms and puts her skill into making them work optimally. Verdigris, for example, is a resplendent, stonking chypre. You can clearly smell the superb bergamot, cistus and oakmoss singing in harmony. Young Cossack (in Russia Cossacks have a more positive reputation than abroad) is a lovely animalic hay-tonka accord that would make a wonderful masculine, with or without sabre and horse. Her Cuir de Russie is the most eccentric of that name I remember smelling, very floral and less smoky than the usual fare, with a strange and beautiful sweet-green drydown. In the end, empirical evidence prevails: these are perfumes that even a fan of synthetics like me would love to wear.»
Ayala Moriel, Perfumeur: "Anna Zworykina Perfumes' My Vanilla is a juicy bundle of cured vanilla beans whose sweetness is cut by green lentsicus leaves and smouldering incense. Through the thick smoke you can feel an exotic sweetness that is surprisingly floral - not at all gourmand as one would expect from anything containing "vanilla" in its title. It is spicy, exotic, narcotic. While I can see how vanilla migh`t have been a starting point for this fragrance - the result is not vanilla-dominated. Rather, it is a voluptuous oriental, influenced by the bombastic nature of Shalimar: burnt sugar and sweet spices are balanced with intensely smoky and slightly animalic choya nakh (destructive distillation of seashells) smoky-woody cedar to counterpoint the sweetness and pastry association, and perfumed with indolic jasmine and buttery orris and tonka beans. A very interesting addition to my gradually growing list of favourite all-natural perfumes. At first, My Vanilla has a strong, almost heavy presence - yet is utterly enjoyable to wear. The kind of scent that requires a special occasion. But of course like a good oriental, it fades into the softest, sweet whisper of vanilla. "
Erica Golding, «Australian Perfume Junkies» сontributor: "They're really fascinating and unusual and they get locked into your head. I need to try more!"
"All the perfumes of hers that I've smelled were of a similar style and character: sophisticated, intriguing, purely natural, with depth and complexity that is usually achieved by incorporating house-made botanical tinctures."
"These samples are truly excellent. They are complex, sophisticated, and evocative--fine achievements in perfumery! "
«Anna's perfume making skills are amazing. In my pack I chose Fallen Leaves, Wind from mount Kailash, My Vanilla, Second Skin and Green Madness. Every single one of them is a master piece, a journey, a story, a dream. I would like to write about all of them individually, but the review space doesn't allow me to. They are all very curious in their own way, like only handmade perfumes can, but also very strong, so spraying it in the air in front of you and then walking through it is a better choice than spraying them directly on you. Definitely worth the money, and I am yearning to order more. My favourite was Wind from mount Kailash, so herby and thyme-y, but still cold and deep. Like magic in a bottle.»
«Anna Zworykina is not only a perfumer, she is an artist. Her perfumes are liquid art. She is especially good when she works with themes such as sadness, sorrow, things lost, decay and melancholia in her perfumes. The scents are so evocative, unique, creative and beautiful, and of such good quality. Sillage is fabulous, and so is the longevity of her creations.»
«An absolutely precious little collection of stories in a bottle. I have only tried two out of 6 (thank you for the extra sample!), but I am already in love, and I want to make the introductions last a little longer. The fragrances are marvellosuly intricate, interesting, unexpected, made to fuel the imagination. I love the smokiness, the absence of sugar-sweetness. These perfumes are very grown-up, mature, perfectly sophisticated.»
