An homage to the 1499 masterpiece The Pietà – A day before leaving his birthplace, a six- year old Catholic child saw one of the most admired sculptures of all time created by the young Michelangelo. As Nobi grew up in a new country with completely different lifestyle and culture, the striking image of The Pietà has become the symbol of a disrupted sweet dream of his childhood. The perfume of memory, the perfume of Art itself.
‘Aramesh’ means ‘peace’ and is about inner peace, that moment of total bliss, you feel weightless, free of burden, one with the universe, floating in the ‘sky’: When nothing becomes all, narcotic, alluring, overwhelming.
There is nothing cold about this scent. It’s a warm touch on the shoulder, as you are entangled in green vines of black licorice. The spices and gentle sweetness will warm your surroundings. The is climate change for your skin.

“This feeling of an ancient city, but with a freshness, a modernity. An old luxury and a new confidence. Sometimes clichés are in the popular imagination for all the right reasons. This is the meeting of two continents and two cultures. Coffee. Creaminess. Leather. Suede. Spices. Incense. Waking up in the Moda, crossing the Bosphorus, and a balmy night in Karaköy.”
An ambery, woody, spicy fragrance. A fresh aromatic head, with notes of bergamot, cardamom, red thyme. A woody, aromatic heart, with lavender absolute, Egyptian geranium essence, patchouli heart and sweet myrrh (opoponax) essence. And basenotes of sandalwood, vanilla, tonka bean, amber and musks.

It’s the smell of a walk through Old Havana in the evening, from the Hotel Sevilla to the Caseon del Tango for a dance lesson with Ketty and Felix. Wafts of coffee and tobacco, sweet, sugary desserts cooked with baskets of oranges and mangoes. The scent of peaches beginning to turn overripe, and citrus peel going squishy in the gutter. From a dark doorway a handsome man in white whispers, “Do you want a Cuban boyfriend?” and I speed up a little, squeaking “No! Thankyou very much for asking all the same!” And then the old Cubanos at the tango club greet us with smiles, songs, rum and kisses.
A seductive scent that seduces you and everyone around you. Like a white lie it entices you yet holds a promise of a deeper truth.

The deep and sensual notes of Patchouli, Orcanox, and Vanilla in the base makes the composition truly unique and impossible to forget.
The sense of pained profound love. Contrasting feelings like pain and pleasure, faith and fear. Sweetness and bitterness, warmth and danger, softness and extreme loneliness. A love similar to a religious experience full of devotion and suffering. Love as an addiction. Sometimes an impossible love, maybe an unrequited love.
This troubled woman in love is very attractive as she displays all her doubts and vulnerability; she wears it on her skin. In her fragility lies devotion and enormous strength. We wish to be him, but we may not wish to be her, her desire however is irresistible.
The sense of veiled love, the love of lovers. A love full of passion, lightness, as it carries no responsibility. It’s the meeting between a mistress, maybe a courtesan, and her gentleman. Love as a gesture. In order to live this folly majestically, one needs elegance and character, secrecy is a value.
This woman lover is very attractive as she is a complete mystery, she is not yours nor do you know to whom she belongs. She’s seems to be untouchable and free. We wish to be her as we wish to be him.
