A dark green chypre reminiscent of absinth.
Alessandro Gualtieri on Absinth: "This bottle of perfume is part of the Nasomatto project. The fragrance aims to evoke degrees of hysteria. The result of a quest to stimulate unresponsible behaviour."
Quote from the Perfume Shrine:
"And frankly I cannot see why this would produce anything like hysteria, as it is a wonderful fragrance full of bittersweet notes of herbs, earthy pungent vetiver, possibly angelica or wormwood and some sweet element of vanillic florancy in there that accounts for the most delectable semi-gourmand effect possible. If this is how a modern aromatic gourmand should be made, then I'm all for it. It proved to be a favourite from the line, although I obviously liked a couple more and I can see how men and women alike who go for something individual would go for it. It lasts well, has a more subtle effect upon putting it on and then develops nicely and warm to the skin retaining its properties for a long long time. A winner!"
“I like the feeling that I’m losing control and I’m not the one making the choices. My involvement is to create something that is alive that will be able to say new things.” - Alessandro Gualtieri, aka The Nose
In Italian, Nasomatto means 'crazy nose'. The collection of extraits de parfum was inspired by the desire to be free from the rules and constraints imposed by the market.
The highly concentrated extraits de parfum are original, rebellious, intense and (very) long-lasting on the skin. The Italian perfumer Alessandro Gualtieri lives and works in Amsterdam, where he keeps on inventing and creating unique and intriguing creations.
