WithOud Ish by Zarko expresses a unique Danish experience for the nose: The scent of dense forests blends with the sea breeze along the coasts.
Almost impossible to extract, but subject to insatiable demand, oud is one of the most exclusive raw materials used in the creation of perfumes. Oud Ish has its starting point with this liquid gold and the fragrance of the sweet wood and forest for which it is famous…. A fragrance that is presented in two parallel phases that immediately bewitch you.
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.
