Meaning blanket in Turkish, Battaniye is a representation of intimacy created by the perfumer for a friend that moved from the chaos of the city to the comfort of the countryside. Inspired by watching rain storming through Trabzon, he covered himself in a woolen blanket, watching the chaos erupt from his balcony. The rich but aerated patchouli and amber duet are the stars of this tactile fragrance, but its complexity can be seen with time and patience. Notes of wool and musk dance with texture as a honeysuckle sweetness tickles your nose. But there is spice there too, and leather, and soil, and soot. See where we are going here? Its complexity is intriguing and adventurous; perfectly tactile as it is aromatic. A gift of solace and comfort for all who embrace it.
Notes include amber, honeysuckle, java vetiver, labdanum, musk, patchouli, soil, soot, and wool.
