Embrace the grandeur of Pardon, a fragrance dedicated to the elegant and charming gentlemen of the world. It captures the very essence of a man who stands tall, always impeccably dressed and composed, who leaves a behind a trail of undeniable allure wherever he goes.
In the artful creation of Pardon, every note has been carefully chosen, akin to the craftsmanship of a bespoke suit, the meticulous grooming of a moustache, or the dedicated polishing of dress shoes. Each element intertwines seamlessly, a testament to the gentleman’s unwavering dedication to precision and refinement.
A scent that works for all genders, Pardon is a woody, spicy, warm fragrance. For any sandalwood lovers out there, this scent is a must – it is earthy and creamy with a rich, almost bitter, cacao-like facet to it. Sweet but not sickly – more masculine and decadent, Pardon softens on the skins to reveal and smooth woody and ever so slightly spicy base.
The caps of the Pardon bottles are made out of costly briarwood, a type of wood used for making smoking pipes and luxury car interiors. The making of these unique briarwood caps requires at least 1.5 years of work.
HOW IT WEARS
Opening with a floral kiss and sparkles of spice, Pardon is really all about its dry down. Smooth, suave and compelling, we get dark chocolate, oud, sandalwood and patchouli. As it settles, it evolves into a deliciously decadent and refined fragrance on the skin. A little goes a long way. As a Parfum it will give you 8+ hours on the skin withouut being overwhelming.
We love how the rich spicy notes of Pardon transport you back in time to a scene by a fireplace where a distinguished, well-attired, olde world gentleman sips a malt whiskey, whilst charming you with tales of windswept romance and far-off adventures. This is a must for any sandalwood lovers out there, it’s a wonderfully unique intepretation of it!
ABOUT THE BRAND
Nasomatto, meaning “Crazy Nose” in Italian, is the brainchild of Alessandro Gualtieri, aka The Nose. The house was established in 2007 by Gualtieri as a desperate outburst after being restricted by the marketing regulations and trend forecasts imposed on him by the commercial multinational companies he had previously worked for.
Therefore, each Nasomatto fragrance is an uninhibited, personal, artistic expression of Gualtieri’s. The Nose doesn’t believe in the olfactory pyramids, neither does he want to reveal the ingredients he uses. He wants those who smell his fragrances to be able to interpret scent in their own way, unencumbered by preconceived notions or biases, giving them the freedom to forge their own olfactory image.
“I start making 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 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. I want my perfumes to have an intelligence of their own, not just be slave to my meaning.” The Nose, Alessandro Gualtieri.
Gualtieri has a visceral relationship with materials, everything is decisive – top quality ingredients are chased around the world, bottles, caps and packaging are designed with each fragrance’s concept in mind – every element plays an important role and is part of a bigger picture.
