50 ML – Extrait de Parfum Family: Woody Leathery Green Season: Autumn, Spring The seven heavens echo your glory, The earth itself is moved by this story. Giants once walked down this road, Great ships they towed. Now green foliage hides your aging walls and juniper trees embrace your ramparts. Your three towers house ancient mysteries, secrets hiding in every stone. What an impenetrable door it is, Which started and age closed the previous? Leather bound books are not enough To tell of great battles that were so rough. A distant memory passes along the shore As serene amber and calming musk envelop your soul. This castle defies time with its old stones. It stands strong but with tears in its eyes
50 ML – Extrait de Parfum Family: Floral Rose Season: Spring Istanbul’s loyal daughter, Istanbul is pleased with you… Delicate and elegant like a pearl, gracing the Bosphorus’ neck… Oh my ineffable love, oh my forbidden lover! A tulle dress on bare skin, she flips her hair from Asia to Europe and back again. The scent of her hair in the wind blows gently towards Galata, to her impossible love. Like the first touch of love, violets. Hand in hand, lovers watch her from the shore, at dusk, at midday, or before the dawn. An autumn rain washes her face, her heart is saddened by a thousand-year-old curse. Clear is her pose, like the scent of a Damascus rose. Ships hail her as the waves caress her feet, seagulls cry for her lonely heartbeat, trapped in walls of musk and amber, so strong and deep. Touch her hair gently and you touch Istanbul. Oh the dainty daughter of Bosphorus, you are such a sight, like the shining star of Istanbul in moonlight…

Each one calls to you like a work of art, touching your soul like the velvety touch of patchouli. The wind carries the scent of the Calabrian pines from the hills. A heavenly coupling of sandalwood and dark amber greets you like the longings of a poet. The Crown of Marmara from ALGHABRA Parfums invites you on this artistic journey.
50 ML – Extrait de Parfum Family: Woody Musky Fresh Spicy Season: Autumn Winter Few world landmarks represent quite the smorgasboard of olfactory delights as the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. With over 4,000 shops across more than 60 covered streets, it's a veritable cornucopia of fragrant treasures, from spice and tea markets to exotic fruits to exquisite leather and woodwork. Labyrinth Of Spices, as you might expect, is a sweeping journey through this iconic and bustling marketplace and its many aromas- a treasure chest of sweets, spices, woods, and more- but for anyone who appreciates the sophistication of a gentler touch, we're pleased to report that the experience is as smooth and luxurious as a palanquin ride. Cardamom-infused coffee, sweet clove, and fiery nutmeg anchor the rich bouquet of spices, while green galbanum and sharp lavender inject a bright, fresh balance. Ultimately, a wave of smooth, gently musky woods bring everything together in a soothing, surprisingly cohesive scent that feels like a representation of the Grand Bazaar as a whole. In other words, explore this Labyrinth to your heart's content- we promise you'll find your way to the other side.
50 ML - Extrait de Parfum Family: Woody Balsamic Ambery Season: All Seasons As the center of Sultanic power during the early centuries of the Ottoman Empire, Istanbul's Topkapi Palace is a majestic and sprawling complex, one that could be explored over a lifetime without ever fully revealing its secrets. Ottoman Treasure, the latest from Alghabra, gives this marvelous Palace the tribute it deserves with a rich, complex, compelling oriental scent with plenty of hidden depth of its own. A quick glimpse at the listed notes should give you some sense of what you're in for- there's hardly a traditional top note to be found. Instead, Ottoman Treasure emerges right from the bottle in a hypnotic swirl of smoky white oud and resinous labdanum, lightened only with the gentler smoke of pure olibanum incense and a spicy pop of pink pepper berries. But even with additional notes of earthy patchouli and golden amber in the mix, the composition, like the Palace itself, always leaves space beneath the high-vaulted ceilings for exploration and discovery, as a distinctively mossy basenote keeps overt heaviness at bay despite the powerful richness. Mysterious, regal, intriguing- Ottoman Treasure is everything something seeking a complex yet wearable oriental could ever hope for.
