An ancient metropolis now abandoned to the ages, Ani and its many ruined churches now stand as a monument to both the majesty of empire and the inevitability of time. To honor this mystical place of ANI, an ancient metropolis now abandoned to the ages, Nishane has created a fragrance that juxtaposes bright freshness, fiery spice, rugged woods, and rich warmth- a true voyage through the ages.
Ani opens with a bright, fresh and green bergamot - overflowing with juicy citrus and the snap of fresh vegetation, evoking the overgrowth that has retaken the crumbled walls. A blazing wash of gingery spice suggests the life that still remains, while a gorgeous, fruity rose peeks from between ancient stone. We feel the power of history, now, as rich, creamy, resinous vanilla and rich, earthy wood echo with multitude of voices now left to history.
Complex, robust, and vibrant, Ani is a fragrance with true heritage to its name. This perfume is dedicated to ruin any border between people and to empower the wearer to build his/her own empire even in a situation when all he/she is left with nothing but the ruins.

HOW TO USE

When it comes to most vanilla based scents, my skin often rejects it. But when I discovered Ani, it blew me away. It surprised me because it opened up bright, green, and zingy from the bergamot, ginger, and pink pepper. Something I didn't expect, but it worked harmoniously well with the heart of the fragrance. Then as it dried down, the vanilla became more prominent. It is the star of this perfume - rich and creamy. One of the best vanilla perfumes. So happy to have discovered one that magically works on my skin.
