PERFUME “BATTANIYE”

175.00

BATTANIYE
EXTRAIT DE PARFUM
TYPE: PATCHOULI AMBER

Meaning blanket in Turkish, Battaniye represents intimacy, familiarity, and comfort. The rich but aerated patchouli is the star of this tactile fragrance,
offering a respite from the elements and a moment to recollect yourself.
Originally made for a friend who moved back to the California countryside after spending decades in chaotic Manhattan, Battaniye takes its inspiration from a stormy evening in Trabzon. Watching the rain from the balcony, embraced by an old blanket.

Notes: amber, honeysuckle, java vetiver, labdanum, musk, patchouli, soil, soot, wool

“Before being inspired for Battaniye, I had given up on trying to make a non-redundant amber. It was originally made for a friend who moved back to the California countryside after spending decades in chaotic Manhattan. I drew my inspiration from an evening in Trabzon, when watching a storm from the balcony embraced by my old blanket. Watching this chaos from a protected place reduced it to a spectacle held at arms-length.”

Description

Pekji is an independent Turkish perfume brand, founded by the Istanbul perfumer Ömer İpekçi. Before officially launching Pekji had a growing underground existence for years, as the perfumes made for a small circle of perfume enthusiasts quickly garnered a dedicated following through word of mouth.

Encouraged by an audience who looks for substance before marketing, Pekji now opens its doors to a wider world. Still as determined to create inspired perfumes that deserve to exist.

An illustrator and graphic designer by trade, Ömer Ipekçi was born in Istanbul where he currently resides. A childhood spent between the high altitudes of rural Black Sea, the idyllic Mediterranean coast and the chaotic urban Istanbul has taught him to appreciate contrasting environments and cultures for what they are.
Before taking on perfumery, Ipekçi also sought creative expression in painting, music, photography, and calligraphy without making them public.

“Perfume is an underappreciated shortcut to trigger emotion without words and images getting in the way. It can and should be more than seeking status or smelling acceptable.”
