Ilana Jivago Inc. History
History About Ilana JIVAGO and the Company

I create Jivago fragrances from a place of pure love of giving; I create with the intention of enriching the wearer with all of life's blessings.

I believe in the energy that comes from intention and from the loving heart of giving. I know its magical effects. Fragrance enhances our experience of the spiritual world.

The sense of smell has the longest memory of all the senses. It is the first sense to be born in us and the last to remain. It has the power to transcend time.

One of the most vivid memories I have of my mother is the soft, warm and welcoming way she smelled. This was what inspired me to create 24K, my first fragrance, and continues to inspire me today.

It is my sincere hope that my fragrances will not only transcend time and help you to recall life's most treasured moments, but continually inspire you on your own wondrous journey in life. These inspirations led me to choose fragrance as a medium for my message.

With Love and Love for Creation,

7 Notes & 7 Elements

In 1997, Ilana Jivago introduced two new product lines and brand names - 7 Notes for Woman and 7 Elements for Man - inspired by the unity of scent and sound and the power of 7 in creation.

Music, like perfumery is based on notes, Scent and Sound have an invisible, magic power to enter us and change our moods.  The original musical scores are included on a music CD that is available with the fragrances.

10% of the profits from 7 Notes & 7 Elements go toward helping schools and young musicians who cannot afford music instruments in their quest for music learning and creation.
