Once there was a student who wasn’t from Germany but was in Germany to take some “medieval” perfumery courses.
There were a huge amount of bottles filled with different essences and smelling materials available to his nose and nothing else to do apart from learning how to recognize and utilize them or getting drunk at the only pub in town. He did both.
His name was Alessandro and there was Aturetto, too, both from Italy. They were not brothers but they shared a passion for perfume. Arturetto, already an experienced nose, taught Alessandro, and the time finally came for Alessandro to leave Germany to create perfumes for Diesel. After 18 years making fragrances for other companies, Alessandro decided to set out on his own and, with the help of his old friend Arturetto, formed Nasomatto in Amsterdam.
The perfumes in Nasomatto’s collection are modern, rich and full of personality, reflecting Alessandro’s explosive joie de vivre and love of all things fragranced. Each one is highly concentrated parfum extrait (the lasting power is remarkable) and presented in beautiful, stacked architectural bottles topped with wooden caps.
