“I begin to make something but at a certain point, it starts making choices by itself. It is the process that interests and guides me. I like the feeling of losing control and I’m not the one making the choices. My involvement is to create something that is alive and will be able to say new things. I want my perfumes to have an intelligence of their own, not just be slaves to my meaning.”
Alessandro Gualtieri – Nose of Nasomatto
Nasomatto (CrazyNose) is an Italian brand created by the infamous Alessandro Gualtieri. The amazingly talented perfumer has been able to gather a huge cult following thanks to his bold, artistic and avant-garde style. Nasomatto perfumes are Perfume Extracts with a concentration of 40% (about five times as strong as an average eau de toilette), ensuring the amazing lasting power of all fragrances.
More importantly, Nasomatto fragrances are all edgy, sometimes crazy compositions that really push the envelope of artistic perfumery. Black Afgano for example, aims to evoke the best quality of Hashish and is a smoky blend of oud, tobacco, incense and cannabis. Absinth on the other hand, is a fantastically smoky green fragrance full of peppery vetiver and anice-like absinth. Daring perfumes for daring people.
