Style unisex

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 an cognac oil.

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.
