Since its debut last year, Nishane’s Colognise- a lovely and invigorating re-imagining of the fresh lemon cologne kept on-hand in most Turkish households- has been an office favorite, a striking yet casual scent perfect for any situation. Now, with Safran Colognise, they’ve brought back the core of the fragrance with a pronounced dash of fiery saffron, and the result is strikingly unique- a fragrance with the delightful energy of the original, but a robust, exotic character all its own.
Safran Colognise’s bright, citrussy opening will be familiar to fans of the original, but it arrives right away with a twist all its own- the tropical juiciness of passionfruit, which helps open the palate to the rich spiciness of saffron, combined with pink pepper for a powerful heart that maintains an airy freshness- less herbaceous than its predecessor but still recognizable and bright. A drydown that adds salty ambergris and leather to the mix preserves the spicy power, while also adding some additional longevity to the musky formula of the original. Robust and vivacious, Safran Colognise is an intoxicating new take on a classic.
