With their brand name translated as “Crazy Nose”, Nasomatto is launching their latest boundary pushing perfume designed to break the canons of traditional perfumery and make it really hard for journalists to describe…
Founded by perfume bad-boy Alessandro Gualtieri – the former perfumer for Versace, Valentino, Helmut Lang and Fendi – the Italian-born mastermind is known for his creative freedom and his ability to canalise his emotions into his fragrances, created to suit one’s personality.
Launched in 2008, Nasomatto, which now counts 12 creations, believes that our senses, such as that of smell, are the chief channels through which our reactions are generated, so that the scents we wear should be created accordingly.
Gualtieri’s brand new fragrance is called Nudiflorum. Motivated by anything nude, the bottle of perfume, with its angular shape and a weighty top made of sculpted padauk wood, is “the result of a quest to find a vanishing point in nature, a nude desire in the translucence of our senses.”
According to its manifesto, the fragrance invites you to “undergo the unexpected tranquillity of giving oneself up without concern for a boundary, and to sense the hazy intuition of a depth that undoes distance.”
Gualtieri does not give out the list of ingredients, but describes the perfume as “an olfactory intimacy. It is an interpretation of a feeling of being touched. A slender touch of a bare skin that penetrates through the surface and becomes a part of you. Natural, primitive and sensual – this cross-breed of naked fur flowers creates a feeling of a delicate collision of a skin on skin.”
Sounds good to us.
