Characteristics of Nishane

Nishane, spelled 'nişane' means sign or symbol. Nishane offers unique and sophisticated fragrances, inspired by tradition but influenced by the modern and cosmopolitan vision of the city of Istanbul, where Western and Eastern cultures come together in unique harmony.

Each Nishane fragrance is conceived as a tribute to different emotions and moods. Citrus, chocolate and coffee are just some of the olfactory notes present in Nishane fragrances, the result of months and months of searching for the best raw materials. The "Collection Rumi" is inspired by the quotes of Mevlânâ Celâleddîn-i Rûmî; the "Shadow Play Trilogy" takes inspiration from the traditional shadow play also known as "Karagöz & Hacivat"; the "Collection Imaginative" recalls "The Little Prince" and the "No Boundaries Collection" is designed to put an end to the emotional boundaries between people in the world.

Safran Colognise by Nishane is the modern fragrance of the oriental tradition.
