Fantomas is an elusive hint towards the transgressive act that has been carried out with an ease of a refined precision. A search to manipulate and amplify the power of the nose. Fantomas leaves an undeniable trace for further investigation, a lasting fragment embodying the wit and charm of a perfectly executed plan. A mysterious fragrance suitable for defiant circumstances,that seemly evokes olfactory illusions with its continuous development on the skin. An idea towards a more harmonious world, or its destruction.
A smell of a sophisticated crime…
The packaging is inspired by the most notorious crime scenes, the packaging is an invitation to investigate, explore and draw one’s own conclusions.
The Fantomas bottle cap is made of a Hazelnut Wood that went through a vacuum metalization process, resulting in four reflective sides.
As with all other Nasomatto fragrances – the whole packaging is made in Italy.
HOW IT WEARS
Both a more mellow wear than anticipated and less intense than most of his signature scents, Fantomas is nonetheless delicious and mysterious as ever. There are definite metallic notes then a warm depth mingling uniquely with a Watermelon freshness. Just what we have come to expect from Alesandro…but yet not. Always a pleasant surprise!
Fantomas is surprisingly delicate & not surprisingly delicious. This sweet, delicate and ambery wood with a touch of fruity summer sweetness. Like a hot Summer afternoon sipping watermelon Martinis in the sun….as if Absinthe, Blamage and Duro had one too many sweet, syrupy cocktails, made warm, lazy love and birthed Fantomas.
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 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
