"The fragrance aims to evoke the persuasion of utmost masculine elegance and charm." The Nose.
Nasomatto's Pardon takes a dark, woodsy richness and nudges it — ever-so-gently — into a surprisingly softer direction for the Italian niche line.
As seems fitting with the name's connotations of polite society and gentility, Pardon tones down the line's characteristic hard-core intensity. Unlike the brute, narcotic beauty of Black Afgano or the forward wildness of Duro, Pardon wants to persuade you of its masculine elegance and charm, reverberating creating a fragrance at once seductive and refined. Pardon, like the solarized image of the dandy in its ads, manages to evoke vintage while smelling supremely modern.
The project is dedicated to people who have a strong interest in a distinguished perfume choice. Alessandro believes that our senses are the primary instruments which generate our instinctive reactions and drive our process of judging and choosing.
It is Alessandro's intention through the project Nasomatto to share his personal passion for perfumes and enhance your awareness of the impact of your olfactory senses. It's what Alessandro does, thinking up raw materials, situations and accords that he would like to have available as perfumes. Fragrances that smell like he would want to slip between something dead original and something that's simply fun, between something insiring and something that, in many ways, is just insane. It's what he does, beginning a perfume with a sense of high, and then a promise, and then he gets somewhere, and takes it from there. Different, because the way Nasomatto blends materials express the fact that he likes it loud, heavy. He still likes to locate a place where dream and reality meet at the illusive centre of perfume.
