A tribute to women in jazz, both well-known and those who stayed behind the scenes. Exploring jazz poetry brought me to the new horizons of art, music and verse, and jazz being my life passion, created a new image of scent. And although the perfume was partly inspired by classic female blues, Ella&Lil, stands for Ella Fitzgerald and Lil Hardin Armstrong, one of the most important figures in jazz.
The scent starts with warm but dry notes of black tea and cardamom, spices, a warm heart accord of florals of jasmine and ylang ylang, and has a long drydown of a rich, amber like base of botanical leather & musk, dark chocolate nuances of porcini, coffee beans and cacao nibs. A complex botanical formula creates an eclectic style which at the same time reflects the deepness, a dark atmosphere filled with a smooth rhythm and a fluctuating, slightly gloomy voice followed by improvised jazz chords.
Fragrance character: dry, slightly smoky and bitter, powdery.
Notes: black tea, cardamom, black pepper, cloves, orris, cocoa, coffee, porcini, botanical musk & leather.
A bundle of fresh herbs picked hastily before rain starts. With stems, leaves, soil crumbling off the roots it has the scent of earth, leafage and morning dew drops. Genuine ‘figures of delight’ of the first plant aromas gathered in a spring garden.
Sonnet 98 is a soft perfume with the head notes of warm, powdery and lemon like herbs, a woody herbaceous heart, mellow, resinous, amber like base notes of sacred resins and precious oils.
Fragrance character: woody herbaceous, slightly lemony.
Notes: sage, basil, thyme, ginger, may chang, cypress, geranium Bourbon, olibanum, oakmoss, vetiver.
“Hold summer in your hand, pour summer in a glass, a tiny glass of course, the smallest tingling sip for children; change the season in your veins by raising glass to lip and tilting summer in”
― Ray Bradbury, Dandelion Wine
A sip of dulcet summer afternoon. Summer 1928 is rich mellow wine made of wild flowers, dreams, nostalgic moments lost far away in our childhood books. Some people keep old half torn novels to be able to touch the past, some continue daydreaming with natural perfumes... I am one of them...

GLOIRE DE DIJON
Perhaps, the most delicate perfume in my line and the first one combining two forms of art - poetry and painting. Inspired by the works of D.H. Lawrence, mostly by the poem Gloire de Dijon, and the series of nudes by A. Modigliani presented at the Paris Show in 1917, the perfume is an epitome of woman's skin, a contemplation of the beauty, a reflection of frailty of a moment, whether impetuous or languid which can be seen in its notes.
The perfume is a combination of subtle tea notes, soft white rose petals, with dark earthy nuances of cepes and a clean base of slightly smoky vetiver and delicate orris root.
Fragrance character: soft tea floral.
Notes: rooibos, white tea, white rose, cepes, orris, vetiver.
