What would you expect from a fragrance inspired by the perennial dark horse of the classic Old World Shadow Play theatre? Karagoz, which translates from the Turkish as “black eyed”, is the kind of fragrance we associate with the compelling anti-hero; complex, witty, hitting bull’s eye every time. It’s no coincidence that Karagoz has all the punch lines in the Shadow Play performances, and wins the day too!

In Karagoz by Nishane we’re greeted with the intensely sweet and honeyed grape note upon spraying; a succulent forthright “come hither” reference, veering on black plum pudding with aromatic herbs sprinkled on top. Strong too! It’s the kind of fragrance that can be smelled for miles, trailing on the next zip code, and lasting aeons, so anyone with skin tenacity problems, perk up your ears: this is for YOU.

The darkness of the patchouli and amber in the base of the formula, with just a dash of the precious bitter oudh essence, wallop out of the deep end, recalling the magnetic gaze of black eyes; like pools of liquid tar glimmering in the sun, they’re trapping you in.

If you’re a born lover on the prowl, regardless of age, Karagoz will definitely get you noticed. The rest is up to you! *wink wink*
