This fragrance aims to reveal the treasure of a sentimental journey, strength that comes from fragility. The most complex of all of Alessandro’s fragrances, yet his most impulsive and organic to create.
An unrequited love, the power of vulnerability – this perfume from Nasomatto tells this all too familiar story. The gentle and innocent cleanliness of being vulnerable comes through in the softness of this perfume; but so too, does the intensity of raw emotions with a sharpness in the juice. Smoky, spicy and strong yet also clean, floral and soft at the same time. The perfect blend of contradictions.
ABOUT THE BRAND
Nasomatto means ‘crazy nose’ in Italian and this range is for the daring and non conventional. After working in commercial fragrance for many years, Alessandro longed for his own range of weird & wonderful scents that push the boundaries and become addictive, creating Nasomatto.
“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 loosing control and I’m not the one making the choices. My involvement is to createsomething that is alive and will be able to say new things. I want my perfumes to have an intellgence of thier own, not just be slaves to my meaning.” Alessandro Gualtieri
HOW IT WEARS
China White is a Parfum so it should generally give the wearer anywhere from 8 hours + longevity on the skin, because all Nasomatto fragrances are created using Parfum extract, you’ll probably be wearing this scent for at least that long. Potentially up to 24 hours, and if it’s on your clothing, even longer. With it’s deep florals, green notes and the underlying hint of smokiness, China White will last long into it’s dry down and thereafter.
We love how this rich, smoky floriental transports you to a time and place where the wispy waft of incense intermingles powerfully, yet gracefully with the smell of fresh laundry and an oriental garden surrounded by a beautiful and mysterious forest. It’s creamy, almost dream-like quality is both evocative and sentimental. Powerful, but with a softness also. A little bit soapy, a little bit powdery and a little bit addictive.
