Our founder discovered a paintbrush cleaning solution belonging to another friend in the classroom where the art lesson took place. He then decided to enhance its fragrance by adding some orange cologne to it. After thoroughly mixing the solution with the cologne, he decided to take a whiff. Despite his initial reservations, he found the new scent delightful. Encouraged by this, he decided to create a new perfume.
Upon returning home from school, he embarked on the task of designing a new perfume using the materials available to him, such as various colognes, lavender, flower leaves, and more. Through his efforts, he successfully concocted a unique fragrance. The following day, he brought the newly crafted perfume to school in a repurposed perfume bottle and asked his classmates to evaluate the scent. The response was overwhelmingly positive; everyone loved it! Inspired by the positive feedback, he made a decision that day to develop and produce numerous new perfumes, intending to sell them to people in his school.
With a desire to formalize this endeavor, the founder decided to follow a structured approach, implementing a simple roadmap that encompassed essential elements such as establishing a proper branding, creating a website, and selecting a fitting name.
Our founder and a buddy tried to sell perfumes under the name "Pardo." We chose "Par" for perfume in Turkish, "d" for our founder's name, and "o" for his friend's name. We put Pardo perfumes in old bottles and slapped on Pardo stickers. One day, our founder put Pardo perfume into a Calvin Klein bottle and stuck a Pardo sticker on it. When he took it to school, his friend tried it, looked at the bottle, and asked if we were now "Calpardo." We had to clarify that we were still "Pardo," not "Calpardo." It turned out the sticker only covered "vin Klein" on the bottle, making it read "Cal Pardo." We thought it was hilarious, so we decided to change the company name to "Calpardo" and went with the flow.
On the date May 15th 03:15 PM (15:15), Calpardo is officially established! And for that Calpardo threw a rad little party to celebrate the startup.
As our founder's primary area of interest shifted towards electronics, Calpardo also transitioned its focus to technology and electronics. Within the company's scope, small projects have been initiated. Presently, calpardo.com's main objective is to showcase these projects.
