Anna Zworykina
I am an olfactive artist I began my career in the sciences, becoming a biochemist with a phD, living and studying in Moscow. When I got my Ph.D., I came to realize I would prefer creative work to science. The year 2004 was a landmark in my career: I started making perfumes not only for my own needs but also for my friends. Since that time, many changes have taken place.

In 2007, I opened a Natural Perfumery community in LJ social network. We organized the first Natural Perfumery trade show in 2008. In 2009, I wrote a book on the natural perfumery, more than 5000 copies are sold to this moment, so I'm very proud of it!

I moved to Slovakia a few years ago but still visit Moscow quite often. My second book about the Art of olfaction is in progress.

"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. I'm definitely a fan, and will purchase several scents in full bottle size after trying the samples. :)"

"Сuir de Russie Anna Zworykina perfumes: Warm horse saddle worn smooth from use, a pitch black velvet cloak flying madly, a majestic beast in the wilderness"

"Anna Zworykina will be responsible for me retuning home from Russia and getting rid of almost all of my perfume collection. I have never before encountered such complexity in natural perfumes. And they are so much better than both mainstream and niche ones- almost always there's something chafing my nose there. But AZ's masterpieces are just perfect!"

It has been my absolute pleasure to have spent many months with the perfumes of Anna Zworykina, and I wish I could review all of them as each one is worthy of a dedicated review. Alas, favorites must be chosen, and Black Gardenia rose to the top rather quickly with its heady mix of white flowers and leather. A lot of leather, and a lot of smoke as well. Anna writes about Billie Holiday and jazz as her inspiration for this perfume, and it would fit right in at a dark smoky club with the scent of a balmy gardenia tucked behind thick sultry hair. Black Gardenia is not a fresh-from-the-garden flower, and it’s not purely gardenia either. It’s an indolic jasmine merged with powdery iris, in addition to notes of bitter crushed leaves amidst the aforementioned leathery backdrop. This is one of those shape shifting perfumes that smells intensely smoky one moment, then utterly inky or floral the next. Complex and sexy, I adore it. Jasmine and Agarwood is another tropical floral from Anna that I was drawn to, but it’s quite different from Black Gardenia. Jasmine and Agarwood is more radiant, but nevertheless intriguing. Gentle mimosa and violet leaf guide this particular perfume experience into luminous green and bright honey. The jasmine feels very dewy and even though this metaphor gets overused when describing perfumes, it really does smell like a tropical garden after a summer’s afternoon rain shower. We are in the middle of a snow storm right now, but somehow Jasmine and Agarwood is sitting well on my skin and doesn’t feel out of place, most likely because there is that hint of agarwood to keep the sweet and misty jasmine from getting too saccharine or fluffy. Ambrette and sandalwood augment this grounding effect even further, but only a touch, as the green aspect of jasmine truly shines in this beautiful fragrance.
"Anna is a master of perfumery. These will smell unlike anything you've tried in conventional perfumery. I've sampled Tobacco Tuberose, Young Cossack and Hue and they are all very long lasting. Projection is mild, but that doesn't stop me from snuffing my wrists all day"

"Another marvelous scent from this fantastic shop!! I absolutely love "Fire by Fire" - in my opinion it has almost magical power. I'm so grateful to Anna for her deep, dedicated work, outstanding knowledge, kindness and helpfulness. Again: Warmest recommendation"

"Anna’s creations are absolutely brilliant. Each one had a different story to tell and an experience to behold. The dry-downs are truly amazing. Thank you so much, Anna!"

"Madly in love with all of my samples. I've tried them all already and used them up. Some I'm on my 3rd sample of. I like to have the entire suite on hand just in case I need to be reminded or I want to share with a friend. Anna is perhaps the most gifted natural perfumer on our planet. I recommend everything"
