Creative Directors S. Mert Güzel And Murat Katran of Nishane Istanbul
Nishane Instanbul was one of my greatest perfume discoveries at Esxence 2015. I wrote at the time “Murat Katran and S. Mert Guzel, (both born in Instanbul) established the first Istanbul based House in 2012. Turkey is the only country that literally bridges two worlds; Asia and Europe. Since antiquity the Bosphorus (Boğaziçi), the strait that separates two cultures has fascinated artists, poets, merchants, adventurers and conquerors. Introduced at Esxence were their new extraits de parfums which according to Murat took five years of intensive research, finding the right accords, perfumers and endless rounds of revisions in order to bring the true spirit of Istanbul to life. I usually shun large collections and there are 16 perfumes; but each fragrance represents a place, an ingredient, a continent, a country, a time in history. The presentation is outstanding. Each fragrance has a name and a number and is accompanied by a beautiful post card". Since then we have reviewed Múnegu, (which won one of my top 25 fragrances of 2015), Boszporusz, Dufbluten and Pasion Choco. -Michelyn Camen, Editor in Chief
