For fragrances that entice and allure, House of Gozdawa‘s sophistication and class is out of this world. Mastering the art of complementing your natural style, whilst offering something fresh, DECO went along to the Cape Town launch to sniff out these luxe scents.

House of Gozdawa have just introduced their first luxurious collection of scents entitled CONFESSIONS Vol.01 consisting of six founding fragrances created by perfumer Agata Karolina. Established in 2015, this small batch perfumery dedicated itself to create Eau de Extrait scents; a style of perfume with the the largest percentage of fragrance to carrier.

Created with 100% natural oils, the scents are both complex and soothing. Scent is one of the most distinctive qualities of an individual and the way natural essences reacts with skin is no different. Mixing with an individuals pH levels and body heat the scents becomes truly unique. We were enthralled to discover such details when we went along to their launch this week at SMITH Studio.
