EGE / ΑΙΓΑΙΟ is a tribute to the Aegean Sea - an elongated embayment of the Mediterranean Sea located between the Greek and Anatolian peninsulas – that has been historically important, especially in regard to the civilization of Ancient Greece, who inhabited the area around the coast of the Aegean and the Aegean islands. The Aegean islands facilitated contact between the people of the area and between Europe and Asia.
EGE is the Turkish name for the sea which was derived from the Greek name ΑΙΓΑΙΟ. Having both names together as the name of the perfume (EGE / ΑΙΓΑΙΟ) is a deliberate choice by NISHANE in order to pay tribute to the shared skies and culture by Turkish and Greek people who are the neighbouring residents of the Aegean costs which - as Herodotus said - a world of summer sea-breeze, deep blue waters with every pebble on the bottom clearly visible, towns and villages full of houses painted white and blue, a common bond of cuisine, shared instruments and lyrics having a feeling of nostalgia mixed with hopefulness, a cohabitation and interdependence of centuries.
The inspiration for EGE / ΑΙΓΑΙΟ is:
“Blue is the colour of longing for your most beautiful dreams in this blue world and enjoy sharing the glamor of being able to see the same charming blueness no matter from which part of the see you look at it.”
