Ambery, woody and spicy, Istanbul is an Orientalist’s fantasy expressed in a cutting edge script. Explore this ancient city, abuzz with modern spirit: bright bergamot marries beautifully with cool cardamom, like sunlight polishing the cool stone facade of the Blue Mosque. Red thyme is a playful spirit that conveys this city’s sense of ‘anything is possible’. Old school luxury and a contemporary confidence meet when stately lavender and geranium pair up with rebellious patchouli and a recontextualized sweet myrrh. Sometimes clichés exist for a reason: Istanbul really is East meets West, the collision of two continents, two spheres of culture. Sandalwood’s searing, vibrant energy optimistically conveys the clash, while it’s more delicate facets pave the way for subtle creamy flavors which are universal, even in this diverse city. Coffee so black it’s almost solid. Creamy leather and suede are worn and used by all, perfect for this coastal climate. Spices enliven all cuisines, while incense snakes through the streets, a smoky excitement. Wake up in Moda, cross the Bosphorus and enjoy a balmy night in Karaköy. Wherever you find yourself in Istanbul, adventure is sure to follow.
