Between light and dark, innocent and wicked, and EDP and extrait, lies Nishane’s new Icons Collection- striking, seductive new scents presented in a “demi extrait” concentration and based around a central component. Florane is, you guessed it, a floral scent, with a powerful and complex heart of violet, muguet (lily of the valley), and jasmine, but if you’re picturing a demure, powdered white floral, think again- kissed with bright, juicy fruit and sweetened with warm, ambered woods, Florane is a vivid, vibrant, unforgettably sexy floral rich with delightfully unexpected combinations. An opening of beautifully tart grapefruit and aromatic cassis set the stage for the aforementioned floral heart, which feels neither overly vintage nor simplistically youthful- rather, it’s a sexy, modern, three-dimensional bouquet that grows more dynamic still with the warm, woodsy base of amber, hinoki, musk, and the perfect touch of sweet vanilla. The result is a striking, long-lasting, and complex floral that can transition from sweatpants to soirees and back again without breaking stride. In other words, just the kind of versatile, creative, and compelling stunner we’ve come to expect from every new Nishane release.
