Sixth sense.

I remember the days where a signature scent defined who you are - NOT the celebrity endorsing them. I very clearly recall spending time in stores and boutiques finding a smell that worked well on my skin, and that I thought defined me as a person (eventually Narciso Rodriguez eau de parfum).

Thank GOD for traditionalists, who continue to develop raw scents that are authentic, contemporary and developed for those that really do give a shit about how they consume someone elses senses.

Created by Alessandro Gualtieri, the Nasomatto Project is "dedicated to people who have a strong interested in a distinguished choice". Blending unique fragrances to create strong statements, each blend has a name that defines exactly what the reaction to it should be. Topped off with insanely beautiful bottles that juxtapose the hard vs. soft of wood with glass that I love very very much.

** Duro - aims to enhance all the manifestations of male strength
** Narcotic Venus - the quest for the overwhelming addictive intensity of female sexual power
** Hindu Grass - breathe the believe in universal peace and love. The quest for warm affection of humanity
** Silver Musk - evokes superhero magnetism. The result of a quest for mercurial liquid love sensation
** Absinth - evokes degrees of hysteria. The result of a quest to stimulate irresponsible behaviour
** China White - reveals the treasure of a sentimental journey. The result of a quest to reveal the strength of fragility
** Black Afgano - evokes mysterious intrigue and an intense journey

Don't expect to see the notes included in each scent anywhere. Nasomatto leaves these undisclosed so that every scent experience is unique and interpreted by the wearer.
