Suléko is a new indie perfume line created and designed by Anastasia Sokolow, a graduate of the Institute of Perfume, Cosmetics, and Food Flavouring (ISIPCA). Inspired by Sokolow’s Russian heritage and the tradition of Russian perfumery, Suléko features fragrances corresponding to different seasons. The name Suléko, which means “soul” in Georgian, also refers to a popular song about a young man looking for his beloved.
Suléko’s fragrances are “inspired by Russian culture, painting, music, literature and, as works of art, are contained in sculptures created by contemporary artists – visual and tactile reflections of the olfactory compositions.”
The line currently includes three perfumes, which were composed in collaboration between Sokolow and perfumer Cécile Zarokian: Albho, Vy Roza and Djélem.
Albho represents winter. It features notes of mint, eucalyptus, pine, cedarwood, guaiacwood, benzoin, tolu balm, and labdanum. “As if transported to a distant country beyond the mountains, where the sky is always pure.”
Vy Roza “makes reference to Tatiana, the heroine of A. S. Pushkin’s novel, Eugene Onegin. “Vy Roza belle Tatiana” (“You are a Rose, beautiful Tatiana”), sings Parisian ballet master Triquet on her birthday.” It’s a spring-like, dewy rose.
Djélem is the name of a Roma song, and the fragrance represents summer. It includes notes of carnations, celove, amber, and immortelle.
