e’L doesn’t sound like the French ‘elle’ by chance, because Zarko Ahlmann Pavlov created this creation for a very special woman – his wife Lene. It was also this fragrance that brought Zarko into the world of molecules.
He achieved an absolutely unthinkable feat in the sense of the classic fragrance pyramid: a warm and deep character trait and a fresh and lively tone that runs parallel to each other, without one replacing or triumphing over the other. The two currents remain open, present and perceptible at all times.
A fragrance that melts completely into the skin, an individual extension of one’s personality.
Zarko attempted on many occasions to receive serious training in perfume but according to him it was incredibly difficult. Meanwhile, he read all the important books he could get his hands on about perfumery and he gained quite a great deal of knowledge concerning the profession of perfume making. Eventually Zarko found a perfume-mentor who finally gave him the support and guidance he needed to start creating his own line of perfumes. Zarko realized he could create an accord in matters of days which gave him the push he needed and ultimately that first accord ended up being part of his first fragrance. During that same period, an English company helped him gather the rare essentials oils and Molecules to help him start his development –and this relationship is still, to this day, very important to him.
His inspiration is always Nordic where he was born and raised. There, he was surrounded with various seas and shores- some with sand and with rocks, others with endless flowers in fields, and many with mossy trees and white woods. He feeds on this and always find peace in these places. He can actually play with new fragrance compositions in his mind and gathers accords based on the feelings he has related to these favorite, specific places.
