Description

All-natural perfumes in a 0,5 ml samples.
8 samples of FLORAL natural perfume collection.
Floral collection - smells of flowers from all over the world. Blossoming flower-buds, bunches of flowers; flowers in garlands - all of them are enveloped in precious resins and woods. Sensual perfumes, full of drama and romance; each is different like flowers themselves.


1) Musk rose - a transparent rose soliflore. Thicket of wild dog-roses, an enchanted castle, crinolines, lace and music, sparkling flames and cooling breeze. Falling in love in a whirlwind of petals.
A green grassy start is like a wind bringing you soft breath of citrus grove. Here is an armful of roses: centifolia, gallica, bulgarian and turkish roses. Small twirls of jasmine, osmanthus and orange blossom are like a delicate lace veil caught by a rose bush. Base notes are woven with transparent and warm resinous notes of labdanum absolute, milky and powdery orris root, sandalwood and ambretta.
It is the best to wear the perfume in a dry hot weather with some wind. It demands high sky, a lot of sun and it will pay you off giving an easy, romantic mood.
Neroli, mimosa, roses, orange blossom, jasmine, osmanthus, ylang ylang, rosewood, cedarwood, labdanum, oakmoss, sandalwood, ambrette.

2) Jasminee and agarwood - an oriental floral-balsamic perfume. Softened with mimosa absolute, green smell of violet leaves and absinthe together make Jasmin and Agar sound unexpectedly european, in spite of traditional oriental heart- and basenotes.
It has a dynamic, full of contrasts, harmonic aroma. Passionate jasmine, sweet like late summer’s honey, and dense agarwood. Velvet, honey, bitterish smoke, an avalanche of white flowers, southern summer night. Golden glow over dark depths.
A wonderful perfume to wear in summer, it combines torrid heat of the afternoon with cooling breath of green meadows; bright lush flowers with exotic wood
Sandalwood essential oil, vanilla absolute, essential oil, jasmine, agarwood, labdanum, cassia, violet leaf, orange juice, ambrett seed, benzoin.

3) Number 3 - a perfume with a stucture of a classic floral composition. A citric aromatic start, a tender all-floral heart with tuberoses, ylang ylang and jasmine, and a woody-balsamic base with plenty of sandalwood.
Powder - tender like rose petals; candied violets; soft glittering of cut-glass; marshmallow - a lazy bliss. Porcelain figurines, a mug of hot cocoa. Muslin curtains turn first light of day into iris colored twilight.
If sprayed, the perfume shows more powder, if dabbed – flower petals.
Bergamot, rose otto, rose de may, tuberose, ylang ylang, jasmine, sandalwood, benzoin, vanilla, orris, ambrette, labdanum, Tonka bean.

4) Sea foam - white floral fragnance meets you with a soft green breeze, full of fresh young leaves and blooming orange trees. It enchants with soft exotic blossoms, and tender creamy colour of coffee-tree flowers makes tuberose even whiter. It feels like silky sea foam, foam of flowers, sweet almond milk and coconut. It softly whispers in you ear some careless words about endless summer and about warm seas, while it gracefully rolls on sandalwood shores.
Blackcurrant bud absolute, neroli, rose otto, coffe flower absolute, tuberose absolute, maisoya, sandalwood CO2 extract, vanilla, Tonka bean

5) White silk - a floral-oriental perfume, in which jasmine and sandalwood play the main parts. And the same way the seven colours of rainbow collected with a prism shine together with white glow of daylight, jasmine here, surrounded by mixed flowers forms a perfect white bouquet.
WS is a story of happiness, a melody filled with it. It’s about a perfect morning and the first cup of bergamote tea. Yellow fruits, apricot jam and milk cream added here with the notes of tuberose and osmanthus – lush and dainty. Bright citruses and heady jasmine in a deep ocean of sandalwood.
Extremely good if put on with spray; gives joy in any weather.
Sandalwood CO2 extract, sandalwood essential oil, tuberose absolute, osmanthus absolute,
vanilla absolute, bergamot, neroli, rosewood, lemon, orris.

6) Winter blush
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 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. Here one can find a sea of roses as well as piquancy of spices and soft glow of thick winter wines.
Smell of WB is a miracle cure for depression any time of day, be it in a morning started on the wrong foot or at an evening 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.
Orange, rose, jasmine, cinnamon, cognac, cardamom, vanilla, orris, benzoin, rosewood, cedarwood, labdanum, Peru balsam.

7) Black Gardenia - a floral leather perfume with spicy and animalic nuances.
It was Billie Holiday who often wore a gardenia flower in her hair. Black Gardenia, a perfume created with her in mind, is built of white flower petals contrasting with leather nuances of the base. It’s character is unpredictable yet smooth, just like real good oldschool jazz. It exudes aromas of tropic flowers, giving you a clear image of gardenia.
The flowers are set against a dark and dense fond with leather-animalic notes.
The perfume is especially enjoyable in the cold. You can dab some perfume on dark (be attentive! the perfume may stain light clothes!) wool-wear or furs – this way the sillage may be quite significant.
Sandalwood essential oil, tuberose absolute, castoreum, vanilla absolute, neroli, orris, davana, frangipani, roses, jasmine, ylang ylang.

8) 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 dim old library cabinet. The cabinet is full of curling aromatic flows of pipe tobacco 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 for you – white flowers or tobacco-leather?
I advise to choose chilly dull weather to wear this perfume – it warms and comforts in a most subtle and pleasant way.
Top notes: wormwood, cistus, violet leaf, frankincense
Heart notes: tuberose, tobacco, rose de may,
Base notes: sandalwood, angelica root, orris, agarwood

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.»

FAQ!

- WHAT MATERIALS ARE USED IN CREATING ANNA ZWORYKINA PERFUMES?

- I create my perfumes exclusively from natural plant (very rarely animal) substances in the form they were extracted: as essential oils, absolutes, concretes, resins, alcohol or oil infusions, or pomades, resulting from home enfleurage.
With some rare exceptions, extractions are not modified; certain parts are not separated to enhance best aromatic qualities.
All materials are 100% natural. I get them from trusted suppliers in the US.
Some materials are "certified organic", however, Anna Zworykina Perfumes are not organic.
Depending on the nature of a particular perfume, I use different bases: alcohol, fractionated oils, beeswax and flower waxes.
In creating my perfumes I do not use synthetic fragrances compounds and fixatives, synthetic musks and pheromones.

- WHAT ARE YOUR RECOMMENDATIONS FOR GETTING TO KNOW NATURAL FRAGRANCES WHO ARE FAMILIAR ONLY WITH SYNTHETIC MOLECULE BASED PERFUMES?

Try natural perfumes only on the skin. Smelling perfumes in a bottle or on a blotter strip may create a distorted impression about a fragrance because natural perfumes are meant to be used only on the skin or on the clothes.
While you get to know natural perfumes always follow the safety rules that I describe in the next section.
Before trying on perfumes that were delivered by mail, especially during colder seasons, let them sit in the room temperature for a few days.
Standard places for applying a fragrance are the wrists and inside of your elbows. Natural fragrances have a tendency to change significantly as they develop. What you smell during the first minute after applying, in a couple of minutes and in ten minutes will differ. Skip the first ten to fifteen seconds, letting the alcohol evaporate from the skin.
I recommend introducing yourself to one fragrance in one day because comparing to synthetic perfumes, natural ones have a much more complex structure and they unveil in unpredictable ways. Some spark brightly from the start while others need more time to fully shine.
It's recommended not to try more than two perfumes in one day. If you have to try more in a short period of time, refresh your olfactory receptors by drinking water or tea. I prefer warm, smooth-flavored green tea.


- WHAT ARE THE SAFETY RULES FOR USING NATURAL PERFUMES?
- Certain essential oils and absolutes that are used in natural perfumes may cause allergies.
I advise those who are prone to allergic reactions, pregnant and nursing women, as well as people with chronic illnesses to be extra careful.
Before trying on natural perfumes, study the list of ingredients and consult with your doctor.
If you're prone to allergies, always perform an allergic reaction test before using a new perfume: apply perfume to the inside part of your elbow. If there is no sign of unpleasant reaction (redness, swelling, rash) in the course of a few hours, you may safely use the fragrance.
Before going outside into the sun, do not apply fragrances made from natural ingredients to the exposed parts of the skin because some essential oils may cause the skin to become extra sensitive to various kinds of ultraviolet light.

- WHAT IS A RIGHT WAY TO STORING NATURAL PERFUMES AND WHAT IS THEIR EXPIRATION TIME?

- Keep perfumes away from abrupt temperature changes and store them in a dark place.
I would not recommend to store perfumes in a very humid place.
Natural perfumes that do not contain citrus oils that are easily oxidisable, can live for up to 5 yeas. Light, citrusy fragrances for up to a year and a half to two years.
Perfumes will not turn to poison after that but will loose their initial brightness of fragrance.

- IS IT POSSIBLE FOR NATURAL PERFUMES TO GO BAD?

- Natural ingredients contained in perfumes slowly change over time. For example, citrus oils are oxidized loosing brightness of the fragrance.
Perfumes cannot turn "bad" or "sour", because it's an alcohol based compound of aromatic extracts that does not contain water.
However, if a perfume bottle is not properly closed and kept in a very humid place, perfume's structure may change.
Perfumes in sample vials are not meant to be stored for many years.

- HOW LONG-LASTING ARE NATURAL PERFUMES? WHAT IS THEIR LONGEVITY?

- Natural perfumes can last from 1-1,5 hour for Eau de toilette concentration to a few days (applied to hair or clothing) for Eau de parfum or Parfum concentration.
Lasting time also depends on a perfume group. For example, fragrances from the "citrus" group tend to disappear from the skin faster than those from the "oriental" group.
Natural and "not only natural" but otherwise similar fragrances from the same group of perfumes taken in the same concentration will have different lasting times.
"Not only natural" ones will retain their scent longer because of added fixatives. The lighter the fragrance is, the faster it will vanish from the skin if it's not anchored by fixatives which is typically done in "not only natural" perfumery.
At the same time more complex perfume compounds in oriental style that contain more basic aromatic ingredients can easily compete with similar "not only natural" fragrances of the same concentration level.

- WHERE DO YOU RECOMMEND TO APPLY NATURAL PERFUMES?

- Where to apply a perfume depends on what scent longevity and intensity you expect to get. Usually, perfumes are applied to the "pulse points" - the inner wrists, neck, behind the ears, inside of the elbows, dip on the collar bone. It is done so because the temperature is higher where blood vessels are closer to the skin which makes fragrance molecules evaporate faster, emanating scent from the skin.
Usually fragrances last much longer on the hair and clothing than on the skin.
So, if you especially value scent's longevity - apply perfume to the hair or to the clothing if it's dark enough not to be stained or if perfume is colorless

- Keep perfumes away from abrupt temperature changes and store them in a dark place.
I would not recommend to store perfumes in a very humid place.
Natural perfumes that do not contain citrus oils that are easily oxidisable, can live for up to 5 yeas. Light, citrusy fragrances for up to a year and a half to two years.
Perfumes will not turn to poison after that but will loose their initial brightness of fragrance.

- IS IT POSSIBLE FOR NATURAL PERFUMES TO GO BAD?

- Natural ingredients contained in perfumes slowly change over time. For example, citrus oils are oxidized loosing brightness of the fragrance.
Perfumes cannot turn "bad" or "sour", because it's an alcohol based compound of aromatic extracts that does not contain water.
However, if a perfume bottle is not properly closed and kept in a very humid place, perfume's structure may change.
Perfumes in sample vials are not meant to be stored for many years.

- HOW LONG-LASTING ARE NATURAL PERFUMES? WHAT IS THEIR LONGEVITY?

- Natural perfumes can last from 1-1,5 hour for Eau de toilette concentration to a few days (applied to hair or clothing) for Eau de parfum or Parfum concentration.
Lasting time also depends on a perfume group. For example, fragrances from the "citrus" group tend to disappear from the skin faster than those from the "oriental" group.
Natural and "not only natural" but otherwise similar fragrances from the same group of perfumes taken in the same concentration will have different lasting times.
"Not only natural" ones will retain their scent longer because of added fixatives. The lighter the fragrance is, the faster it will vanish from the skin if it's not anchored by fixatives which is typically done in "not only natural" perfumery.
At the same time more complex perfume compounds in oriental style that contain more basic aromatic ingredients can easily compete with similar "not only natural" fragrances of the same concentration level.

- WHERE DO YOU RECOMMEND TO APPLY NATURAL PERFUMES?

- Where to apply a perfume depends on what scent longevity and intensity you expect to get. Usually, perfumes are applied to the "pulse points" - the inner wrists, neck, behind the ears, inside of the elbows, dip on the collar bone. It is done so because the temperature is higher where blood vessels are closer to the skin which makes fragrance molecules evaporate faster, emanating scent from the skin.
Usually fragrances last much longer on the hair and clothing than on the skin.
So, if you especially value scent's longevity - apply perfume to the hair or to the clothing if it's dark enough not to be stained or if perfume is colorless
