    Nasomatto
    Absinth
    (2007)
    Alessandro Gualtieri
    Green Woody

    ------------------
    Notes: Green Notes, Vetiver, Wormwood, Earthy Note
    ------------------

    Green, earthy, herbal, slightly musky (not in the perfumer's sense, but rather, a bit raw and unwashed). This is "a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma," to quote the words of Winston Churchill referring the Soviet Union, uttered in 1939. Nasomatto fragrances doesn't reveal the notes in their formulations, so we pikers have to put our heads together and come up with a best guess among us. Alessandro Gualtieri, the nose of Nasomatto (whose name, incidentally is Italian for "crazy nose"), searches out deeply redolent notes to combine and contrast in ways designed to mislead the nose, one feels; but misleading here means intriguing as well. Absinth is evocative of the liqueur of the same name, but through the rather raw and earthy note of wormwood instead of the usual, anise or fennel note that many of us associate with pastis, the modern, sanitized version of the drink whose effects are depicted in Edgar Degas' painting L'Absinthe. The perfume (and Nasomatto creations are perfumes in terms of concentration) has an elusive element to it, a fleeting, now-you-smell-it-now-you-don't kind of salty vetiver feel. Intriguing, a tad mysterious, evocative of something just out of the reach of memory: remembered... or imagined... or both?

    I'm sampling



    I used two very small sprays from the official sample - these two small sprays are likely less than one normal spray. So far I absolutely love it. It's floral as all get out but warm and comforting and assertive and opulent and.. just magnificent.

    I couldn't see wearing this often but I think I'll have to pick up a decant after my sample runs out.

    Guerlain's Mitsouko EdP. Playing around with a 1996 versus a 2008 bottle, lots of deep sniffs. Hard for me to find proper words. Result so far: 2008 is sharper with a stronger vetiver, 1996 has sweeter-softer notes of cedar and cinnamon, and overall more roundness. Both have their mysterious side, though the round softness of the older model provides an irresistible nostalgia.

    Estee Lauder Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia today. This is the first time I've tried this and all I can say for now is that it seems like a strange mash up of Carnal Flower and Dans tes Bras.
