Set your life on fire. Seek those who FAN YOUR FLAMES
Said the Sufi Grand Master, Jalal ad-Din al-Rumi. Nishane probably intends here a subtle implication to the mysticism of the Mevlevis. Rumi is known to us all? I hope so :) If not, here a little summary:

Like almost every dervish, Rumi has also "travelled" a lot. "Dying to be born. Walking to arrive." defines the phenomenon of travel. His travel activities cover more than 4000 km: from his birthplace (born 1207 in Balch - today's Afghanistan) via Samarkand in Uzbekistan, Iran and Syria, where Rumi studied in Damascus and Aleppo in his twenties. His last stop was Konya in Turkey, where Rumi spent the last 50 years of his life. Today, Rumi's tomb attracts reverent followers and heads of state every year for a swirling dervish ceremony (Sema) on December 17th, the anniversary of his death (Seb-i Arus).

Rumi belongs to the few grandmasters (e.g. besides Khalid-i Bagdadi) who have been given the epithet "Maulana":Arabic for "our master/master". Accordingly, he is known in Turkey, for example, rather under the name "Mevlana". This inspiring, world-famous poet, whose fruitful works are still a muse for people like Madonna and Deepak Chopra, has become a kind of self-help guru, as he reflects the universal, timeless concerns of humanity. His legacy is omnipresent, such as in the multimedia chamber opera Monsters of Grace, which is based on his works. Goethe too, has intensively studied Rumi in his West-Eastern Divan. There are various analyses of why Rumi is so popular (his Masnawi is one of the best-selling books and is considered one of the most important Islamic texts). States argue about who Rumi belongs to: Afghanistan - birthplace, Iran - all his texts are in Persian, Turkey - the place where he was reborn with shams.

A little lecture:

With your soul, mine has changed mixed like water with the wine.
Who can separate wine from water,
who will take you and me out of the clubs?

But now back to Nishane:

Just by the implication to Rumi alone I would not have imagined the scent to be so dark and gloomy. With Rumi I rather associate the "light". I can't imagine Rumi smelling like Nishane :) I don't mean that I don't like the scent. No, on the contrary, Fan Your Flames smells very pleasant. Especially the prelude with coconut pleases me extremely. This smoke and the mystical darkness behind it doesn't bother me either. As I said, Fan Your Flames has something mystical about it - especially the rum, which embraces the coconut and with all its masculinity, which dominates recessive and feminine coconut. Makes you think "oh, where did the coconut go?!" And you start looking. It should be noted that the search for the vanished coconut will not be an easy one - the path is dark. I can well imagine that the madrasah where Rumi taught - smelled very much like Nishane

A much talked about early release from Turkish house Nishane, of which I have only ever tried Rosa Turca. The note pyramid intrigued me on this and I was keen to see if the actual smell delivered. Thank you.

First Taste of Istanbul
This Rumi-inspired concoction has turned out to be a beautiful blind buy. I haven't tried any of the Nishane perfumes but am very impressed by the quality so far. The perfume is multi-faceted, long lasting and powerful. It starts off very tropical with pineapple and coconut. I wish there was more rum: here it is more like restrained sweet liquor whereas I would have liked more punch, like a rum raisin. The tang of cedarwood makes the intense sweetness bearable but you have to like super sweet perfumes in the style of Tabacca, Or du Serail and Sacre Tabac Sucree. For those that like hookah/shisha perfumes, you will love this.

An initial sweet boozy tobacco vibe that quickly becomes an dark cedar wood scent monument. For very masculine manly men only :-)+1

This beauty is the love-child of Straight To Heaven (rum, spicy, woody) and Virgin Island Water (coconut), with much better performance. WOW+4

Persistent coconut on mentholated fruity-woody base. A bit odd juggling act with warm and cold notes. Better as a feminine. Mind the dosage!+1
