Lokum began in 2005 as a modern interpretation of the Turkish delight, rendering the gel-like candy in updated flavors such as walnut fig, pistachio and rose with lemon and ginger. From there, founder Zeynep Keyman expanded the line with an array of luxurious giftables, including custom stationery (from $250 for 100 cards and envelopes), scented candles (from $35) and eaux de cologne, with scents inspired by Babylonian jasmine and mimosa blossoms (from $20). Following a retail location in Istanbul and another in London, Lokum is now available stateside at Bergdorf Goodman. lokumistanbul.com.
