Natural stimulation for body, mind and senses with the reduction to the essentials. This was the artistic credo of Paul Divjak with the composition of the fragrance elixir SOUL SPLASH. The recipe? This was of course, implemented according to the Saint Charles philosophy – tried and tested from nature, combined with modern knowledge. However, first thing´s first…

SOUL SPLASH | The story

For many years Paul Divjak has been dedicated to, alongside a passion for literature, music and applied arts, the world of fragrances.

The fascination for the olfactory found its feet in Divjak´s early childhood. With a sensitive sense of smell and an obvious endowment, a seven-year old Divjak made himself an impressive collection of herbs, plants and woods in the garden of the family summer house in Semmering; impassioned by the multitude of exhilarating fragrances.

Together with the fact that one day his favourite perfume was no longer available and the increasing incompatibility with synthetic ingredients, Divjak was to later turn his studio into a fragrance laboratory. He read everything on the subject that came his way, kept in touch with international experts and began to distil, experiment and compose …

During the search for a harmoniously effective fragrance mixture, which could become a very special companion in everyday life, one which could transport joy, lightness and brightness, the recipe for SOUL SPLASH was found one morning after waking, clear as day and written in the remnants of sleep, tells the artist: “Like the score for a piece of music that describes a walk through a light-flooded landscape.”

In his friend and pharmacist Alexander Ehrmann, Divjak found a kindred spirit – one who believed in the potential of SOUL SPLASH from the very beginning. Together, further steps were taken: the careful preparation on Saint Charles premises now took place in the tradition of a more than one hundred year pharmacist-family history.

SOUL SPLASH | Correct use

The right application of SOUL SPLASH is based on myths and stories. In addition to the classic use as body spray there is also a special ritual for initiates and energy junkies, according to the slogan – A spritz can make your day –one stretches out one’s hand, sprays two powerful squirts in the direction of the body, at the same time breathing into the perfumed cloud with closed eyes. For true SOUL SPLASH fans an effective morning ritual or when you’re hoping to succeed at something, or just when the soul thirsts after positive energy.

SOUL SPLASH is available from selected partners in the Saint Charles Pharmacy in Vienna and Berlin and in the Saint Charles premium store.

„Paul Divjak’s perfume creation, in the form of a bottle, comes from the outside quite modestly, as one might expect it rather in the pharmacy cabinet than in the perfumery hall … The name of the fragrance: “Soul Splash”. This combines stimulating rosemary with concentration-promoting lemongrass, the lavendotenote helps against nervousness and basil in depression. And the oil of the Indonesian Cajeput tree mobilizes creativity and opens up new ideas …“ Wolfgang Popp, Ö1 / Leporello
