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.
The freedom of cycling past the former spice warehouses of the Warmoesstraat to a canalside apartment on Prinsengracht on the elegant south side of the city. Wind in your hair.
Now we’re inside. It’s getting dark. It’s gezellig. That quintessential ingredient of good Amsterdam living — it’s cosy. Warm. Flowers in the window. Cake and feeling indulged. Beautifully made wooden furniture. Dark hues on the walls.
A genre-defying floral, spicy, woody, ambery fragrance. The conceptual imagining of a black tulip.A spicy aromatic head of elemi, schinus molle CO2 extract, Szechuan pepper and saffron. The floral heart contains tulip and rose. And a base of cedarwood, musks, sandalwood and amber.
‘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.
Inspired by the frozen arctic icescapes and the extreme cold you can experience, it has a very fresh impact on the skin, thanks to the Brazilian Orange. Airy and intriguing, it has body notes of Egyptian Jasmine and Comoros Ylang Ylang.
The extravagance of a suicidal perfumer finding himself in the land of the unreal and the synthetic with the most superficial of perfumes, a scent of vintage doll. A platinum-haired starlet dressed in pink and a mohair boa looking for success and billionaires. A crazy perfume for a crazy house.
190g of ripe bananas to which are added vanilla and cinnamon. A toucan diving into the heart of a banana plantation. A symphony of vivid colours and sweet fruits, bringing the sounds of Kipling’s birds.
This bottle of perfume is part of the project Nasomatto. The fragrance encourages a raw taste sensation. It is the result of a quest to evoke the powerful and mighty whisper of an olfactory stirring, which magically rejoins the whole and the nothing.
This evokes the concrete and steel of Berlin — and the forest and lakes around the city. Carefree summers, the freshness of the water, swimming at the Strandbad Wannsee. And gritty urban living, it’s leather, smoke, spices, cups of black tea, being inside and underground. Decadent, poor but sexy. It’s a city of brutalist apartment blocks, concrete, elegant parquet floors, modern bohemians.
It’s a light and dark fragrance. A citrus, spicy, woody play of notes. Fresh and zingy top notes of grapefruit, clementine, lemon and schinus molle CO2 extract. A spicy heart containing black pepper and black tea and woody undertones of Haitian vetiver, cedarwood and patchouli.
A journey into the deep ambery core of the forest, expressing the essences of wood and amber with a darker shade. Ruvid and warm at the same time, it gives a “greener” sensation on the skin. The scent of nature.
