House of Gozdawa is a small batch perfumery company founded in Cape Town in 2015, dedicated to creating high quality epicene scents, following a strict production utilising only natural essential oils and carriers. Each scent is developed by Agata Karolina, a design initiator and curator who studied Contextual Design Masters at the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2009, then returned to Cape Town to pursue her passion for perfumery and natural scents.
All products are produced in small batches, bottled by hand and each vintage is specified. Each scent is created with deep love, commitment and intrigue to the story, the natural essences, and the history you will write for yourself as the wearer.
House Of Gozdawa is a business that holds its origins in the history of the Gozdawa crest presented to Agata from her Grandmother Olga Von Chrapowicka, the crest dates back to pre1090 AD. Gozdawa represents the strength, sensitivity, creativity, uniqueness and relationship to nature encompassed by the family. House Of Gozdawa is the contemporary legacy that pays tribute to all those that came before, the stories that were lived and apothecary knowledge that was passed down through generations.
