    Default Nico Uytterhaegen new perfume line

    Hello fellow Basenoters

    here's another recent discovery. Nico Uytterhaegen is a mysterious Belgian designer specialized in avanguardist leather goods and jewelery.





    He lately introduced on the market a new line of fragrances called NONONSENSE. The line strikes as incredibly inscrutable and obscure with handcrafted bottles produced in extremely limited quantities and wrapped in a black leather wallet. They're available as 50ml in EDT strength. Here are a few infos and pictures I had directly from the brand.





    NONONSENSE 1

    A fragrance with a very strong nature. The eau de toilette represents the perfect combination of 100% pure essential oils such as eucalyptus, laurel, geranium, ylang-ylang, patchouli and vetiver. The scent is as well fresh and vivacious as vivacious and exotic.

    NONONSENSE 2

    On a first contact this eau de toilette takes you through woods and spicy fields based on rosewood directly followed by vetiver, benzo, laurel and rozemary. The top note evolves to the freshness of perfume oils ending with a light exotic sense based on groundnut.

    NONONSENSE 3

    A heavy blend of bergamot and citrus creating a spicy eau de parfum evolving to a sensual perfume based on intense aroma of Europ. This elixir stimulates the senses. It's a breath of mystery, as deep as black absorbing light. The finished product is harmonized by the vetiver, patchouli and ylang-ylang accent.

    NONONSENSE 4

    An irresistible fragrance which emits a subtle aire of sensuality and mystery. On first contact, the scent is vivacious, seductive, a sparkling note of citrus combined with laurus / lavendula. It evolves toward a sensual eau de parfum based on intense aromas of Europ, Apple...The finished product is harmonized by the vetiver, patchouli and ylang-ylang accent.


    NONONSENSE 5

    An irresistible fragrance which emits the softness and freshness of flowers. It evolves to a sensual eau de toilette based on amber and musk. The product is harmonized with a subtle oriental scent and modest touch of benzo on the background.


    Experiences with this line anyone?

    Bottles look like something you would find hidden away in the back of an old wine cellar.

    So far I've tried 4 out of 5 as number 3 was temporarely unavailable.

    No.1 is almost a geranium soliflore which is strongly aromatic and persistent. Sort of a bolder L'Anonyme with a remarkable rooty vetiver presence. Extremely stark and masculine.

    No.2 is a weird but wearable concoction of synthetics and naturals. A spicy/woody mixture with resinous undertones and some "undetectable notes" that give a bizarre fresh/exotic/disinfectant vibe (something that strikes halfway between heliotrope and a soft synthetic flower). It could easily go with the most successful compositions in the Comme Des Garcons Synthetic Serie. I believe it's marked as feminine but IMO it's perfectly unisex.

    No.3 was temporarely unavailable.

    No.4 is IMO the less interesting of the lot. A fruity/fresh concoction with a minty/flowery presence. Delicate, slightly sweet. Feminine.

    No.5 is, together with no.2, my favorite. Opens with a compelling mash-up between a nu-gere a-la Sartorial/Invasion Barbare and clean synthetic notes resembling of Comme Des Garcons SKAI/Dry Clean. Evolves then into a slight animalic musky/ambery base. Unisex.

    @Hednic: I saw these products in Florence and the packaging is stunning. The leather wallet is made of bold black aged leather with an embossed monogram as the only detail. The bottles are randomly covered with black wax. They're clearly handmade and yes, they look like something you would find hidden away in the back of an old wine cellar...where someone previously had a S&M session.

    Just got the NONONSENSE#5: fantastic! I'ts incredible how it evolves from the masculine-clean-flowery opening to the dark animalic musky drydown.

    Alfarom certainly is the key person to unearthing new and hidden gem perfumes.

    The geranium sounds nice.

    Wish I could smell these. Certainly more interesting than Sospiro (vomitare).

    Nice, yes, but maybe a bit too harsh and crude. Smells exactly like the type of geranium essential oil that a co-worker of mine uses as mosquito's repellent. Not as bad as I made it sound...

    Certainly more interesting than Sospiro (vomitare).

    How odd. For all the emphases on leather, no leather notes.
