Istanbul by Gallivant

A fragrant mash-up of the ancient and modern. Istanbul tips its hat to the big ambery perfumes of the early 20th century, but revamps them to fit into a 21st century modern lifestyle. Warm, viscous resins in a gentle whirl of lighthearted aromatics and cool shot of geranium.

“Istanbul is an ambery woody perfume with a touch of spices. I mainly have a crush on acetyl isoeugenol, but all the molecules linked to the clove are significant. It gives the smoothness you find in Istanbul. Then the geranium oil and the thyme oil provide the soul of the perfume.” Karine Chevallier, perfumer.
