SOIVOHLE' is an independent artisan perfumery owned and operated by me, artist/perfumer Liz Zorn. I launched our first small collection of natural perfumes in 2002 going online with them in 2005. Since then I have expanded the line to include a mixed media collection and various related products.
Every perfume that I create is batched by hand, bottled and packaged in my small Ohio Atelier. My desire with perfumery has always been to expand on my vision as a visual artist.
Each perfume is a scent journey that is informed by my day to day. My work (all of it) speaks to the Zen concept of Shoshin (beginners mind) where the act of creating is like starting each day with a clean slate, allowing the energies of the day, the ambient noise and inner rumblings to inform the process and outcome. It is a fresh and intuitive way of working. It never gets old and I am always surprised at where I end up.
Over the years we have made many changes. Having two retail locations, custom perfumery and consultation services.
The operation is now back where it all started, in my small home space where I work alone. This is the perfect environment for me, because I really do need a quiet environment and privacy to do my best work. Liz Zorn
