Move over Creed, because a new perfume player is in town! Nishane is here hypnotizing and dazing those who are lucky enough to smell it.
Nishane emits the most incredible Arabic scent on the planet. The notes are ancient, but the brands’ approaches are modern. The fragrance is inspired by Istanbul, a city that literally bridges two worlds – Asia and Europe. Istanbul’s diverse heritage is one of the original representations of cosmopolitanism.
When you open the bottle, you are greeted with a radiant and tantalizing blend of fruity aromatic bergamot, tart-sweet pineapple, and sparkling grapefruit. The scents harmonize with earthy-sweet patchouli and clean cedar that suits any season.
The scent is quite powerful yet delicate at once. The spray can awaken your emotions and rekindle fond memories.
The nose behind Nishane is Jorge Lee. He helped create the fragrance in 2012 with Mert Guzel & Murat Katran. They spent five years of intensive research and numerous studies to guarantee the scent delivers the true representation of Istanbul to the world.
One beloved Turkish custom is to offer perfume to guests. Therefore, Nishane’s handcrafted perfumes and colognes are the brands’ way of sharing that tradition with the rest of the world.
Everyone can now experience Istanbul’s melting pot culture with the smell of Nishane, especially since most of the fragrances under the brand are up to 80% off.
Each smell in this niche collection is inspired by the sumptuous aromas that pervade the world’s seaports. The brand is eager to educate the public about its distinctive and sophisticated fragrances, each meticulously designed and crafted with an elegant touch. Under the brand, there are 23 perfumes so far including, Wulong Cha, Hacivat, Ani, Hundred Silent Ways, Fan Your Flame, and more!
Nishane’s very own Wulong Cha is the perfect scent for any man that loves orange and litchi musk. Launched in 2015, this scent tells a story, creating vivid representations of art in the hearts and imaginations of those who use it.
Hacivat is a scent created under Nishane that is as light on the skin as a summer white linen shirt. It is understated, professional, and spotless, but with just the right amount of bitter moss and woods for gravitas.
Hacivat is a rare, traditional woody chypre with a modern twist. The exquisite and magnetic perfume is a true tribute to Turkish elegance, friendliness, competence, and love of art. One of the principal characters in traditional Turkish shadow theater inspired this perfume.
As a part of its “Rumi” collection, Hundred Silent Ways takes center stage. The collection is inspired by quotes from Mevlana Celaleddin-I Rumi, a “Shadow Play Trilogy.”
But before we get into the scent, we must address the beauty behind the fragrances’ name. Hundred Silent Ways, launched in 2016, has peachy top notes, heart notes of gardenia and jasmine, and vanilla base notes. This fragrance is quite a transformative journey as all of the different notes take effect. And the bottle and box color just screams Christmas gift, especially at 52% off!
A Legacy of Elegance & Artistry

With the incredible response to their perfume that they continue to receive, they are finally reaping the benefits of their labor.
