Why all this hype about Nishane?!
I have to admit honestly that the hype around Nishane made me test the scents like "Ani" (smells like lemon-vanilla cake to me) or "Hacivat" (reminds me very much of "Cedrat Boise" - yes, the scent fanatics among you will stone me...) - but I was very disappointed. "Sultan Vetiver" and "Fan Your Flames" are still to come. I tested "Sultan Vetiver" today and was really very enthusiastic and positively surprised!

(So far I have always avoided vetiver scents, because I am/was a bit scared since "Encre Noir". Unfortunately, I couldn't understand the enthusiasm for "Encre Noir" so far > I'm apparently not one to run with the masses or follow trends. "Encre Noir" really only smells like black ink to me. If, and when I want to smell like that I don't know until today ;-)

But now back to the actual theme - the fragrance: "Sultan Vetiver" really starts off explosively with a fresh note (bergamot) and a slight piquancy/spiciness (pepper). This is followed by a bitter and earthy scent (vetiver). After this opening, however, the fragrance begins to unfold its magic ... the vetiver slowly combines with the tonka bean and an almost honey-like - sweetish smell develops. Reminds me also at times of "Back To Black" (I love honey in fragrances - maybe that's why the course of the fragrance stands out for me). This composition between vetiver and tonka bean lasts for quite a while, until the leather and amber appear in the drydown - of course always in the presence of vetiver (as you can see in the pyramid of scents, there are different kinds of vetiver). In the end, the fragrance develops a creamy note, slightly sweet and earthy/leathery.

My conclusion: The fragrance is simply great! You can see how high quality the ingredients have been processed into a masterpiece and how high quality the whole thing is! Durability a little more than 8 hours on my skin. If it happened to many people like me and you are a little deterred by the earthy vetiver at first, I would recommend you to try or test this fragrance! I would advise against buying blindly, as the fragrance is not exactly cheap and I have generally learned for myself that one should first test the fragrances in everyday life, how they develop and unfold on the skin. Moreover, everyone has a different perception of the scents.

Finely tuned bittersweet combo of a huge, moist vetiver note and (what smells like) incense smoke. Quite possibly worth its price.

Medicinal vetiver smelling more like those hyperpriced fake ouds than a real rooty vetiver.
