Nishane Ani review: a Heavenly Vanilla Cologne? 
Creamy, vanilla and citrus, just like a spin off your favourite lemon meringue pie. The 2019 unisex release Nishane Ani lures you in with its seductive, dessert-like scent. I own a bottle of this fragrance and I can say with a level of certainty, I won’t be getting rid of it anytime soon.
The notes in Nishane Ani include a top of ginger, bergamot, pink pepper and green notes. Mid notes of cardamom, black current, turkish rose. And a base of vanilla, sandalwood, benzoin, cedar, patchouli, ambergris and musk.
How Does It Smell?
On application, Ani opens with a fresh citrus accord that hails bergamot and ginger. As the scent develops on skin, the base notes of vanilla and sandalwood really come through to give it that creamy backbone which makes it so irresistible. Some of the other notes such as cedar, patchouli and musk are also present. However, they are more subtle to the nose.
Nishane Ani is undoubtedly one of the best blended vanilla scents I have smelt to date.John Ibrahim
Occasions and Versatility
It is by no means a powerhouse scent, but its unique scent profile makes it very smooth, warm and inviting. I find it is best worn in cooler months such as Autumn and Winter. This is where you may find yourself in the vicinity of others on a night out or next to that special someone for a date night.
Longevity and Projection
Ani sits close to the skin but has a sillage that can project up to almost a metre away. On my skin, I get roughly 3-4 hours of great performance before it shrinks to more of a skin scent that lasts for a total of about 7-8hrs. I typically apply 3-5 sprays of this fragrance to get the best results.
Nishane Ani is Excellent
Nishane Ani is a very wearable scent for both men and women. Its gourmand, fresh and insatiable qualities make it the type of scent you want to keep smelling and be close to. There is no strict age range or personality trait that would best suit this scent. However I do think this fragrance would pair well with a nicely dressed man or a woman in their 20s or 30s.
Expect many compliments with this fragrance as you won’t go unnoticed wearing it. Nishane Ani comes in an Extrait concentration in 50ml and 100ml bottles.
Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille is another comforting scent, but with more tobacco and spices you should check out!
