Anastasia Sokolow, the designer
The secret and mysterious world of perfume was unveiled to me at Yves Saint Laurent Beauté. This was the beginning of a great passion. I then followed high level trainings at the Higher International Institute of Perfume, Cosmetics, and Food Flavouring (ISIPCA) and studied the great classics of French Haute Parfumerie, preserved by the Osmothèque Conservatory of Perfumes; I immersed myself in this magical world of top-level expertise. Today, as a member of the French Society of Perfumers, I wish to share my passion and make the choice of a perfume an experience which awakens the senses and is much more than an encounter; it is a thunderbolt, a feeling of rediscovering oneself.
SULÉKÓ, The echo of your soul
This name recalls a Georgian poem, which became a very popular Russian song, “Souliko”. This song is about a young man who is seeking his soul mate. It is through smelling the wonderful scent of a rose that he eventually finds her.
This very moving song pays tribute to the power of perfume. Perfume is a reflection of oneself. It tells our story and reveals something about us even before we have said a word. It also survives us, as the most vivid memory of a being. A well-chosen fragrance will magnify the person who wears it, will act as an aura, a second skin, the echo of the soul – “soul-echo”.
SULÉKÓ reflects the approach of a Russian perfumer who emigrated to France after the Revolution: Konstantin Weriguine. He worked alongside Ernest Beaux at Bourjois-Chanel. In his book, “Souvenirs et Parfums” (“Memories and Perfumes”), he describes beautifully the scents of Russia. SULÉKÓ was inspired by this approach and created four universes defined olfactively, but also emotionally: SULÉKÓ WINTER, SULÉKÓ SPRING, SULÉKÓ SUMMER and SULÉKÓ FALL. Each universe matches a specific state of mind, a personnality or a phase of our life.
