About this deal

Beneath the ubiquitous sardines's salty aroma, the syrupy seker pare desserts offered on large trays in the street, the numerous Döner kebab joints and the fermented bulgur boza drink, one might bypass the simpler but happier smell of Limon Kolonyasi, a prevalent clean lemony scent emanating from seeimingly everywhere: closely cropped napes, kid's small hands under white, school-uniform collars, tabletops and plastic overlays, linen drying in the sun.

Starts out like sweet lemon-drop candy which quickly fades to lemon blossoms smoothed out with a bit of dry cedar.Although she kept her precious exotic perfumes at home, the bergamot, lemon or even pine-infused eau de Cologne travelled with her, refreshing many a time a weary travelling companion and alleviating a stuffy atmosphere of a couped-up car on a long drive across Europe. But unlike other natural scents, this ethanol-based concoction’s high alcohol content can kill more than 80% of germs and act as an effective hand disinfectant.

I lived in Ankara, Turkey in the mid-70s when I was a little kid, and I remember the Turkish people using this lemon cologne all the time, everywhere.The familiar scent is well recognised and conjures up an almost nostalgic effect for those who have ever lived in or even visited Turkey.

The reason you may find it being used in odd places is primarily because of religious nuances associated with cleanliness. Cologne is a fragrant liquid that is often preferred to serve to guests, especially on holidays and important days.There are certain conditions which have become deeply ingrained in Turkish lifestyle from Islam as a result of the Ottomans.
