Basel Binjabr founded Thameen in 2013, having fallen in love with the power of fragrance – how it can trigger memories and transport you to another world. Born from an obsession with rare scented oils, the London-based brand creates polished and original scents that combine Eastern opulence with Western refinement. The name is taken from the Arabic word for “precious”; each of its creations is inspired by the world’s most sought-after jewels and the stories behind them.
Insignia by Thameen London is part of the Sovereign collection and inspired by the Garter Star. An embroidered star that is worn in public by Knights of the Garter on their cloaks. Insignia is an extraordinary perfume that is dark, sophisticated, and subtle. It opens with Bitter Orange, Whiskey Accord, and Milky Fig.After a little while you’ll be able to discover Damask Rose, Geranium, and Laurel in the heart. The base notes contain Vetiver, Sandalwood, and Cuir Velor de Laire.
