Many cultural traditions accompany and support fragrances. The Egyptians believed perfumes and fragrances were the sweat of the Gods. Religious traditions in Cyprus believed that certain fragrances brought worshippers closer to the gods. And culturally Chinese originally didn’t use fragrances to scent the body, but as a cleansing and disinfecting tool, believing that certain scents could eliminate disease from rooms.Traditionally in Turkey, cologne was offered to guests as a gesture of hospitality. This Turkish tradition sets the stage for the Turkish cologne, Nishane.

As a cultural crossroad, Turkey, and Istanbul in particular, represents a melding of European, Asian, and Middle Eastern culture. Nishane, and its exquisite three collections of Extraits de Parfums, is a bold, modern mélange of what all three cultural traditions have to offer. Additionally, Nishane is Turkey’s first niche cologne.It took nearly two years to accomplish the rare essences of the 16-scent Extrait de Parfum Collection. The fragrance notes of each olfactive creation have been chosen carefully to tell unique life stories. Everyone is invited to feel Istanbul’s mixture of cultures with a sniff of a Nishane fragrance.

Fashion Reverie’s favorite colognes in the collection is Nishane’s ‘Spice Bazaar’ that conjures images of a Turkish bazaar in Istanbul. Juniper, cedarwood, pressed ginger, rosemary, ginger, black pepper, vanilla, and saffron transport the wearer to the pageantry of the city life of Istanbul. While ‘Afrika-Olifant’ can stimulate your hidden desires with its animalistic notes of civet settle, myrrh, frankincense, castoreum, leather, and oud. Get ready for the hunt!!

Last, but not least, ‘Hundred Silent Ways’ combines mandarin, peach, tuberose, white jasmine, and gardenia to produce a fragrance that is bold, saucy, beautiful, and proud. Let this fragrance say things you are too timid to say!!In the spirit of Turkish hospitality, let Nishane be the gift that keeps on giving, transporting you to exotic locations and stimulating your senses!

Editors’ Pick: Katy Perry’s INDI Fragrance

Katy Perry is everywhere!! And that’s a good thing!! In addition to Katy’s music market saturation with a slew of hit singles and being the current host of “The Voice,” Katy has become a fashion icon. Katy Perry has the Katy Perry Collection with Covergirl. And there is also Katy Perry’s shoe collection.

For most celebrities, that would be more than enough market saturation; but not for Katy. You can now add to Katy Perry’s brand explosion her new fragrance from Coty Fragrances, INDI.

This is a brave move on the part of Coty Fragrances and Katy Perry. Celebrity fragrances traditionally have the shortest shelf life of all commercial fragrances. And though this fragrance statistic still holds true, depending on the celeb, the shelf life may be truncated, but there can be a lot of ka-ching in the short term. Katy and Coty Fragrance are betting on this!!

INDI is a one-of-a-kind seductive musk fragrance that elevates the senses. The fragrance is artfully crafted with 11 different musks that blend beautifully with open notes of oriental plum and Italian bergamot. The combination of fresh muguet and white cedar wood mingle with the velvety warmth of amber and vanilla in the background. Katy Perry’s INDI fragrance is as unique as the consumers that will wear the fragrance.

“The amber and musk combination in Katy Perry’s INDI gives off instant gratification of softness and comfort that I think a lot of people car relate to. I think that’s way it’s a fragrance that can be perfect for anyone. There is a softness to it that is so pleasant when you when you wear it, it makes you feel warm and cozy, perfect for the holiday season,” Caroline Sabas Givaudon, creator of Katy Peri’s INDI.

In this upcoming 2017 season of giving, remember, fragrances can conjure up memories of home, warmth, and familiarity; all great holiday emotions that are trending for 2017. Firmenich perfumer, Frank Voelkl, agrees, “each scent you experience becomes mixed with emotions. When you experience that same scent, it not only sparks a memory, but emotions as well. Our memories feel so much stronger in that moment because we almost get to relive them—feeling the same joy, or excitement, or comfort as the very first time.”

Let INDI with fragrance notes that evoke emotions of comfort and softness be your choice for the holidays! Katy Perry’s INDI is available exclusively on walgreens.com and retail for $24.99–$45.00.—Staff

Their stores and website are so much fun to visit and shop—it is a perfect home for NICOPANDA. I wanted to develop an exclusive collection for our launch with UO men’s and women’s—something fun and easy to wear. For this collection specifically—we took the classic idea of camouflage and shook it up with vivid colors—red, purple, pink, blue, yellow. The idea is to stand out—not blend in! I suggest layering them all together for a full-on look,” detailed Formichetti.The 8-piece women’s wear assortment includes a maxi puffer jacket in white camo, a playful mini-dress with cold shoulder detailing, a sheer maxi dress in red, a pink camo hoodie and matching joggers, a sheer ruffle dress in black, a puffer jacket in pastel camo, and a maxi puffer scarf.

Fashion Reverie’s Last Minute Halloween Looks

Halloween will soon be upon us! Did you get a last-minute party invite but don’t want to spend upwards of $75 on flimsy ill-fitting costume from Party City or Ricky’s you’ll never wear again? You may already have the ingredients for 5 quick and easy costumes for that fashionista in your closet.

                          Image courtesy of popsugar.com

Anna Wintour, the legendary fashion diva herself!What you will need:

  • Your chicest outfit
  • Sunglasses
  • A copy of Vogue magazine
  • A bobbed wig in light brown

Put together a look you love! Accessorize like it’s going out of style. Don’t be afraid to go over the top. Never take off your sunglasses off even at night. Carry a copy of Vogue and give insane fashion advice. See wacky fashion advice below:

  • Those shoes may your ears look sad
  • The Pantone color of the season is jelly
  • My favorite look from New York Fashion Week is Jeremy Scott’s living cat scarves. But how do you make the scarves stop purring?
  • Are you breathing? Oxygen is SO last season

  Image courtesy of paramountpictures.com

Wednesday AddamsOh, sure you could do the traditional Mortica Addams, but everyone does that and besides people are just going to think you’re Elvira, mistress of the dark. Pick a different Halloween look?

What you will need:

  • Little black dress with long sleeves
  • White collared shirt
  • Black tights
  • Black flat shoes

Part your hair down the center and make pigtail braids on each side, if you really want to sell it, comb through some temporary black dye. Just know if you have blond or light brown hair, the black dye will take longer to wash out. Put foundation all over your face including your lips and skip any blusher.

Carry a headless doll and say disturbing (but funny) things in a flat monotone. Examples below:

  • I must feed the dog … to my alligator
  • Do you like my costume? I’m a serial killer. They look just like everyone else.
  • You have nice skin. It does a great job holding in your organs. It’s not even leaking.

                                   Image courtesy of dailymail.co.uk

FBI Agent

  • Professional looking suit
  • Sunglasses
  • White ear buds

Or you can make it a couples costume by added a red wig to create Dana Scully and Mulder. You’ll need badges for both. If you don’t want to make a trip to the costume shop, write out FBI on a 3×5 index card and put it in your wallet to flip out when people ask who you are, or clip it to your breast pocket.

For the White House FBI Agent, slick your hair into tight bun; only put one ear bud in. To make it a sexy White House FBI agent add a mini skirt and stiletto heels.

Say things into your wrist occasionally such as:

  • “President Trump wants to address the press. Swap out his lip balm with a gluestick”
  • “Emergency: Sarah Huckabee just realized her makeup artist is a drag queen who hates her guts”
  • “Trump is getting grumpy, who’s turn is it to put him down for his nap?”

 

Two versions of Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”

Classic

  • Little black dress
  • Pearl necklace
  • Tiara
  • Elbow length gloves
  • Long cigarette holder, if you can find one

 

Sexy

  • Man’s white shirt
  • Tassel earrings
  • Light blue sleep mask
  • Draw eyes on the sleep mask with a marker (gold if you have it, but black will do)

 

Audrey Hepburn’ character, Holly Golightly, was an AMAZING character. Reciting any one of her quotes from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” is fun and sure to get you lots of laughs.

  • “It may be normal, darling; but I’d rather be natural.”
  • “What I found does the most good is just to get into a taxi and go to Tiffany’s. It calms me down right away, the quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there. ” 
  • “Wrinkles and bones, white hair and diamonds: I can’t wait.”

Fashion pundits contend that Generation Y and/or Millenials are changing the face of retail, as we know it.

Editors’ Pick: For Fall 2017 Zadig & Voltaire Marries Three Prominent Trends

Collages1373Don’t be fooled by late summer temperatures, it’s time to start considering your fall wardrobe. And retailers are focused and primed to get consumers attention on fall clothes. Pre-fall clothing has been in the stores since late July and now big retail stores are being stocked with fall merchandise.

That said; when it comes to stylish fall fashion, no brand does it better than Zadig & Voltaire. Launched in Paris in 1997 by Thierry Giller, the grandson of Lacoste co-founder Andre Giller. Zadig & Voltaire quickly gained a reputation for quality accessible style funneled through the luxury ready-to-wear at prices that middle-income consumers can afford.  In recent years the brand has also branched into fragrances, accessories, jewelry and eyewear.

The fall 2017 season will be a season of lots of trends empowering each other. Things are not what they appear to be for fall 2017 and what might be seen as dissimilar bedfellows, for fall 2017 it’s all in how you mix and match these polar opposites. Zadig & Voltaire has found the perfect combinations. And with three store locations in NYC, you cannot go wrong!!

Zadig_Voltaire_fall_20171Military

Military inspirations pop up as a trend every few years. For fall 2017, Zadig & Voltaire merges camouflage print and leopard spots in a bigger way on khaki and canvas. (Think of military influences in the Congo.) The fall 2017 collection includes a great camo jumpsuit zipped neck collar, as well as other pieces that combine a patchwork of khaki patches, velvet stripes and sweaters.

Zadig_Voltaire_fall_2017Leather

Zadig & Voltaire take leather very seriously. From distressed edges to smooth perfection, for fall 2017, the Parisian-based brand has married New York City style with Parisian chicness and sophistication.

Underwear

Zadig & Voltaire loves to layer. This season Zadig & Zoltaire pair skinny jeans and jumpers with undie unmentionable, flouncy nightgown–like dresses and blouses. This pairing is for the fashion risk-taker and those who want to grab attention.
