For almost as long as I can remember, I have dreamt of creating a fragrance that captures the singular climate, lifestyle and aesthetics of my native Scandinavia.
In 2008 I decided to realize my dream, and began studying the fine art of creating fragrances.
It has been an intense and often difficult journey – and one I now understand is life-long endeavour. Like the Nordic landscapes that inspire me, the landscape of beautiful fragrances is subtle in its details, yet vast in its uncharted expanses.
Exploring it is a labour of love, and I am both proud and humbled to be able to call myself Denmark’s only practicing perfumer.
Perfumery is an art, and every artist has his or her own vision and approach to the medium. My vision is to create fragrances that encapsulate Scandinavia, and my approach is to fuse classic French perfumery with stringent, Nordic molecular science. Not so different from a painting or work of music, a great fragrance is a composition. It is my deepest and most sincere hope that you find these compositions of mine – inspired as they are by the Nordic spirit I treasure – a genuine delight to the senses.

The unisex fragrance from ZARKOPERFUME, Cloud Collection responds to its environment, the weather and the 'aura of the wearer'. You'll see the molecules, the essential oils; sea buckthorn berry, jasmine and dark wood, 'float' under the water; an active ingredient in this perfume.ZARKOPERFUME
MOLéCULE 234.38 is based on one, big molecule as the dominating ingredient. The molecule interacts with ones own pheromones - in a sense making it more of a phenomenon than an actual fragrance. The composition of the molecule, as well as it's weight, corresponds with the temperature of body and surroundings, making it an active part of the fragrance.ZARKOPERFUME
The interpretation of the nordic elements fused with pink champagne is the foundation of this perfume. The warm breeze that comes in the spring mixed with water and the dark trees in Denmark. A fragrance that has a grand opening of innocence and purity, but with strong sensual undertones - like pink champagne.ZARKOPERFUME
MOLéCULE No8 was born in a moment of clarity on an autumn beach, and developed over 14 months of refusing to ask what, why or how. The mission was simple: To capture the essence of human innocence and beauty in a fragrance, whatever it took to get there. There was no roadmap. There were no rules. It was uncharted territory.ZARKOPERFUME
This perfume is composed for the self-conscious, luxurious woman, who find herself in the hustle and bustle of every day life. A perfume that develops from Green Tea Absolute and Pomegranate. Not being a heavy perfume, the fragrance still retains deep sensual notes.ZARKOPERFUME
Oud is one the most expensive raw materials used for perfume in the world. It has a uniquely special fragrance of sweet woods and woodland soils. The extraction of Oud is extremely difficult. Combined with a high demand, Oud is considered as precious as liquid gold.ZARKOPERFUME
