Independent artisan project Acidica Perfumes was founded in 2011 by Elena Markova. It started as natural perfumery, based on tinctures, high quality alcohol, essential oils, absolutes only. Later Elena Markova, the olfactory artist, began using synthetic components.
Acidica Perfumes edps and perfumes are alcohol based.

The project credo is to make everything with own hands. Texts, perfumes, photos, website, videos, podcasts, articles include a flicker of their creator's soul and we appreciate a lot when our perfumes get to the right people. Then true magic starts, and each perfume helps and raises the spirit of those who wear them with pleasure.

Each perfume has its own background color in our catalogue on this website. This is author's perception of synesthetic perception of odor and correspondent colors, one more manifestation of perfume as a kind of art that evokes imagination and is not limited just by smelling sensation.

Acidica Perfumes sit close to skin, all of the perfumes are different and have strong personality. Perfume collections are dedicated to Russian nature, tea, elements. Beautiful and natural landscapes, dreams and memories hidden in artisan perfume invite to travel together and to get many vivd impressions at once. Everyone who likes to change perfume few times a day depending on their mood will find these perfumes very handy.

Acidica Perfumes inspired Elena Pilgun from Petersburg, Russia to draw a series of watercolors based on her impressions of the perfumes. This is how our postcards appeared, and you can enjoy them on this website and order any you like.

We create multidimensional stories uniting olfactory, visual arts and storytelling. We invite you to join us in our travel across the olfactory universe and let everybody find his own fragrant Holy Grail.
