Style unisex

A thick woody-balsamic perfume: dense and bitter-sweet. Rich tuberose, earthy boletus mushroom absolute, soft vanilla, sweet patchouli, spicy green pepper and cognac oil. Such a variety of opulent materials and notes offers the sense that you are immersed in the beautiful and never-ending black beyond.

Nigredo is the alchemist's study of darkness and shadows; the first stage one must take in creating the Philosopher's Stone. Anna Zworykina turns alchemist as she harnesses the fragrance for everlasting life.

Further notes in the unique and exceptionally rich scent include: sandalwood,
ginger lily, frankincense, osmanthus, castoreum, oakmoss, rose, violet leaves, orris and elemi.

Important notice:

Anna Zworykina’s blends are olfactive smellscapes (but neither aromatherapy, nor ‘spray-and-go’ perfumes). Her blends are sensory experiences, closer to works of art created in the scented plane (rather than, say, visual or audio).

Certain essential oils and absolutes that are used in her 100% natural perfumes may potentially cause allergies in some people. Please spray Anna Zworykina’s blends on fabric (on sleeves, scarves, etc.). This said, Anna Zworykina has acquired a huge fan base over many years and people interacted with her blends for quite a while now. We are not aware of any reports of any skin reactions so far.

However, Anna advises that those who are prone to allergic reactions, pregnant and nursing women, as well as people with chronic illnesses to be extra careful. Before trying natural blends, study the list of ingredients and consult with a doctor if you are not sure or a had a history of allergies. If you do decide to put these blends on your skin (unable to resist the temptation) always test the blend on the inside part of your elbow first and wait.

Do not spray these blends liberally as a cloud in the way you would spray a conventional perfume. Anna’s smellscapes need to be… carefully applied and experienced. Be mindful that some oils can also make your skin hyper-sensitive to UV.
