I am perfume designer Dejan Levačić and I am dedicated with all my heart during the entire process of creating a perfume. The love for cosmetics and especially for perfumes was inherited with great love from my mother Zlatica, chemical technician working in renowned company Pliva. Therefore from an early age, I had the opportunity to absorb and embrace the experience, skills and knowledge of women working in Pliva
In design I use native autochthonous products like Pumpkin seed oil from Međimurje and the Katruža red Peony flower that grows in Međimurje only once a year in May. As a mag. Ing. geoing. I apply acquired knowledge and experience and bury my perfumes in mine shafts, seas and lakes in order to leave it there for 90 to 180 days in the specific conditions of nature. Therefore my design is in synergy with nature. URTICA was the first perfume I created in 2016. and also the beginning of a true love for perfume design. I was also registered in the Guinness Book of Records in 2019. with the largest perfume bottle in the world with a volume of 616 liters.
The first island perfume Victory was inspired by an exciting story about the entrepreneurial venture of Andrija Linardic, an elderly, poor cooper and plant admirer who 1903. in the Cres Martinšćica started a modern distileria of essential oils. As story itself the perfume also brings warm, powerful, intense and aromatic feelings that blendes strength with the island’s sun that drive us to persue challenges on the way to victory.
The largest bottle of cologne/perfume is 616.18 litres (135.54 UK gal, 162.77 US gal), and was achieved by Dejan Levačić (Croatia) in Čakovec, Međimurje, Croatia, on 22 January 2019.
The perfume bottle measured 1.91 m (6 ft 3 in) in length, 0.82 m (2 ft 8 in) long and 0.46 m (1 ft 6 in) wide.
