Nishane EGE / ΑΙΓΑΙΟ Extrait De Parfum 100mlRegular price £275.00
EGE / ΑΙΓΑΙΟ is a tribute to the Aegean Sea, a part of the Mediterranean Sea located between the Greek and Anatolian peninsulas. It has long been historically important, especially in regard to the civilization of Ancient Greece, who inhabited the area around the coast of the Aegean and the Aegean islands. These islands facilitated contact between the people of the area and between Europe and Asia. EGE is the Turkish name for the Aegean Sea which was derived from the Greek name ΑΙΓΑΙΟ. Having both names together as the name of the perfume, EGE / ΑΙΓΑΙΟ, is a deliberate choice by NISHANE in order to pay tribute to the shared skies and culture of the Turkish and Greek people. As the ancient Greek historian Heredotus said, the Aegean is a world of warm summer sea-breezes, towns and villages full of houses painted blue and white and deep blue waters where every pebble on the bottom is clearly visible. There is a common bond of cuisine, shared instruments and lyrics having a feeling of nostalgia mixed with hopefulness, a cohabitation and interdependence spanning centuries. NISHANE invites everyone to reminisce about the most unforgettable summer holidays by wearing this scent that conveys the most pleasant aromas of the sea and a Mediterranean summer. Created by Greek perfumer Ilias Ermenidis, EGE / ΑΙΓΑΙΟ starts out with top notes of yuzu, violet leaves and anis which then give way to a heart of basil, green cardamom and mint. A dry-down of olibanum and liquorice ruonds out this unisex Floral-Citrus-Woody extrait de parfum.
