Our Journey

“I have always loved smells since I was a child and have always been passionate about perfume. I didn’t realise that my passion would be utilised in creating one of the most precious gifts ever in my life.

When my mum suddenly went into hospital and lay unconscious for days, I didn’t know how to reach her. I felt desperate as I didn’t know if she was ever coming back. So, I set about trying to create something heavenly, through the combination of her favourite flowers, I created a scent… she was able to nod her appreciation for this gift before she left this world and took it with her….it was my final gift to her…”

Asma Sharapova
Founder of Ascetic Aesthete

Inspired by loss and heartbreak, driven by memories and moments, we infused our passion, our love, our soul and our creativity into Ascetic Aesthete.


Ascetic Aesthete is an exploration and celebration of life and heavenly realms. Life poses many challenges as well as bringing us great joy.


Ascetic Aesthete is inspired by the circle of life, the rites of passage, the mystical, esoteric and mythical. Ascetic Aesthete celebrates life in its entirety, it does not shy away from sadness or sorrow, but it is ever hopeful and positive. From the mundane to the divine and everything in between, Ascetic Aesthete transforms human experience into transcendental olfactory form.

Scent has the power to transport us to another time, another place. It opens a window into our past, a portal to our soul. A path to the memories and moments we never forget. And a gateway to new stories and new experiences. They’re packed with mystery and beauty, wonder and love.
