Starting off with aromatic notes from the east of lavender, geranium, and thyme Istanbul soon transitions into its warm, rich Oriental character. The Opoponax (sweet myrrh) and glorious amber accord are the stars of this balmy night scent. Tonka bean and vanilla add some sweetness to the dry incense and spices that are found in the local cuisine. In Istanbul the people love to wear leather and suede because it's perfect for this coastal climate; the blend of sandalwood and musks in here recontextualize that creamy aroma on the skin. Wherever you choose to wear Istanbul, adventure is sure to follow.
