For the Zoniou family, perfume is their life and at the same time, a precious family tradition that has been going on for 45 years.
Their history in the field of perfume begins in 1977, when Doxakis Zonios, with years of experience in the perfume industry, created his own company called Zirve Nova.
With an inexhaustible love for the subject and with his only weapon his hard work, he managed to establish his company in the market by associating the name Zoniou with knowledge and expertise in the field.
«The perfume has to be experienced»
The baton was taken up by his daughter, Niki Zoniou, who was raised in perfumery laboratories and had been nurtured from an early age in the magic of perfume and its power on humans. She herself, with studies in Chemistry and Perfumery, was to be the one to develop the original vision, bringing the concept of experience to the perfume creation process.
At the same time, she added notes of innovation to the company, setting as her goal that each of her customers to become a creator and be able to compose their own perfume, thus capturing memories, desires and feelings. “You have to experience the perfume”, as she says characteristically.
In 2008, Niki Zoniou saw her dream come true, when she created the first Zoniou store in the center of Thessaloniki, from the now new company, A. Zoniou – K. Bekris G.P. . A modern store, accessible to everyone, full of choice and creation.
A few years later the second store was added, also in the city center at 17 Metropolitou Iosif str., completing the creative team and the inexhaustible passion of Niki Zoniou.
