    This scent is unexpectedly hard to describe and "get". It's a sort of meditative, enigmatic fragrance built around a fascinating accord of mineral notes, slightly aquatic too, with contemporary and synthetic woody notes (Iso E, cedar, cashmeran), frankincense, violet/floral notes, perhaps bergamot and orange blossoms, nutmeg and other spices (mainly nutmeg, however), a hint of leafy notes, and a subtle white musks creaminess. It has a sort of overall slightly sticky and aquatic flawlessness which perfectly blends with the woody-incense notes, the spices and the floral sweetness, and makes the whole blend smell quite like nothing else. Plus the composition is really tight, dense, compact and harmonic, quite hard to "dissect". It has definitely a '90s vibe underneath, and honestly reminds me a bit of Le Male at some points, but all I can say is that this smells terribly good, pleasant, cozy, even captivating and haunting, in a really peculiar way. Don't know why exactly, but the blend of natural, almost "new age" notes (mineral, aquatic, incense, aromatic woods, addictive spices) with the bold synthetic feel - not plain or cheap, though - makes me think of 1990's virtual reality, that kind of exotic-natural, almost esoteric places and settings recreated with that fascinating, geometric aesthetics of primitive computer graphic of the Nineties – think of mid-90's videogames, animations, or again "new age" videos, or musical videoclips. That's a kind of heritage that has always intrigued me a lot – that lo-fi, post-modern, computer-driven "mysticism". A fascinating, and undoubtedly well-made scent. The only "con" is that it may get a bit cloying after a while (but more likely you'll crave for it, so not a problem). Delicate and sophisticated drydown. Happy to have blind-bought it for pennies.

    Nemo is a woody oriental that is quite unique with a strong lavender spicy opening that is pleasant but with a kick. The opening accord of lavender and spices sets Nemo apart from other fragrances of its age. Nemo just has an "I'm not the same as you" feeling about it. During its drydown, Nemo becomes more restrained. I smell a green, geranium accord with a hint of carnation and cardamom. A touch of incense offers a slightly mysterious edge. Nemo finishes with a sweet, woody accord, which is very pleasant. This is a very good fragrance with good longevity and average sillage. You can do much worse than Nemo when searching for a quality woody oriental fragrance. Why Nemo has been scuttled to the gulf stream of discontinued fragrances is beyond me.

    Very Original Creation

    The opening is fascinating, with a unique take on hinoki, bringing out more than just a cedar-like note, on the background of a mild citrus note. Then full cedar emerges, and cardamom, and I get a mild frankincense in the drydown, An original creation, with especially the top note being of great beauty and character; the latter stages are good but less special. Adequate silage and projection, and three hours longevity. A shame it has been discontinued.

    A discontinued gem.

    After reading some of the reviews on here I'm scratching my head on a couple of them. In particular the ones that call this a sweet fragrance. This isn't a sweet fragrance and the notes will tell you that. I do get the nutty quality in it as mention by another reviewer and from there I get a huge dose of cardamom, leather, and nutmeg with a very slight vanilla in the background. This is a really heavy fragrance and I wouldn't attempt to wear this in anything but cool to cold weather. Overall Nemo is really good fragrance that is for fragrance lovers.

    Pros: Quality spicy/smokey fragrance.
    Cons: It's discontinued.

    The combination of woody and spicy. and citrus explosions... This is a real hidden treasure. Not something I would buy a full bottle of, but nice...perhaps a decant.

    Whatta surprise guys!!!! I'm smitten. A dark and mysterious woody/leathery oriental with plenty of spices (a huge quantity of cardamom) and hints of incense. All the elements swirl around a nocturnal ambery/patchouli backbone. I tested it by chance while was curiousing inside an old detergents and cosmetics shop's background shelves, tryed it with any expectation just in order to write the review and finally decided to purchase the unique 50 ml piece for €30. I'm really enjoying this fragrance at moment. I catch a standout cedarwood/patchouli with incense in the mix. Agree with drseid, the first blast is nutty and spicy. You can detect soon a sort of nutty and floral-orangy cardamom/lavender, some nutmeg (orangy nutmeg), secret dried fruits (??i guess) and incense from the heart. The latter lingers around as a discreet ghost throughout, even complemented by a deeply peppery power. The floral notes keep to express their potential as soon as the central cardamom/incense becomes stronger and in this phase i detect a sort of spicy/ incensey cloud flavoured by peppery orange and jasmine. Advancing the development the cedary pencil shaving feel turns out (not properly in a sharply woody way) flanked by a faint leathery whiff and a really delicate touch of amber/vanilla. The patchouli keeps on to be foundamental and the prickliness is still present till the end. I agree who with feels some resemblance with John Varvatos, catch indeed that feel but with less fruitiness and more spiciness. Nemo could be a great alternative to all those juices marketed as clubbing fragrance cause in my opinion is able to look at those scents strict in their eyes but with more elegance and a more inpressive charge of dark/spicy enigma.
