Description

Art-extract in a 4,5 ml ( 0,15 American oz) square glass bottle. ("perfume" strength)

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 is a perfume 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, vanilla absolute, neroli, orris, davana, frangipani, castoreum, roses, jasmine, ylang ylang.



This extract is also available in "edp" strength in 8 ml (0,27 American oz)

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.»

I wrote Anna originally as I was chasing down one of her discontinued creations for Switch Perfumes (No 1), and she responded quickly and was very helpful in directing me to discover Huế, which is the city in Vietnam where my grandmother is from, and Cuir de Russie. Her communication was timely, thorough, and helpful. Shipping from Moscow to California under 2 weeks. Praised by Luca Turin for its uniqueness, this is a green, smokey, floral-woody, leather chypre with so many layers, I feel like I’m in a wild forest, taking in all the moss, tobacco, and flowers. This is what Legolas from Lord of the Rings would wear. Maybe even Aragorn. All natural ingredients. Love it. Cuir de Russie evokes distant memories of adventures taken; there’s history to tell and secrets to impart with each whiff. And a sexy sadness to it.

Oh my!!!! These are so wonderful and well worth the much anticipated wait! Now, I’m deciding - no wait - I’ll probably order several! I love the base fragrance of lavender so Anna recommended Silver Lavender, Golden Lavender, and Green Madness. Each are amazing with significant differences yet noticeable lavender in each. I love them all!! I guess that makes my decision;)

A dark, floral leather, nostalgic of smokers dens; dry, tobacco smoke lingers, creating a sultry haze. Dark woods, heavy blackened oak panelling on the walls and ceiling, its intricate detailing speaks of wealth and aristocratic privilege. Leather bound books line the walls. There's an old timber and hide chair, its dry, cracked, and well worn by years of careful habit. There's a slight dampness held at bay by the dry leather and tobacco smoke, but you can feel its presence. The room is lamplit, the pale luminescence enhances the hazy, haughty mood. There's vase of freshly cut tuberose in the room. White, bright, it stands in stark, clean contrast to its surrounds. But it deceives; the tuberose cuts through the woods, leather and tobacco with a sickeningly sweet veil that's almost noxious, but somehow welcome. Beautiful!
