Never one to stand in quietly in the corner behind meek scent creations and names, Nasomatto perfumer Alessandro Gualtieri chose the moniker of a type of ‘80s-era heroin as the name for his newest elixir. Its cap is solid white ceramic with a crackled glaze which signifies the idea behind China White: strength of fragility. China White is indeed intoxicating, a soft and mesmerizing mix of powdery soft florals , a little wood, and something we can’t quite put our finger on… a key element that intrigues us with its almost sharp, edgy, almost leather-like nuance and makes China White so very… addictive (sorry, couldn’t resist). As usual, Nasomatto leaves the notes undisclosed so that every scent experience can be uniquely interpreted by the wearer.

Born in Italy, Alessandro Gualtieri began his career as a student of historic perfumery techniques at a German training institute, an education that was quickly supplemented with lessons from an experienced Italian ex-pat he met in the town’s only bar. After years creating scents for Fendi, Versace, Helmut Lang, and others, and a stint in-house at Diesel, he decided to follow his own vision of bold, transgressive perfumery with the launch of his Amsterdam-based Nasomatto line. Gualtieri’s philosophy contends that our sensory perceptions are the major catalysts behind all human action and decision-making. As a result, he designs his scents to reinforce certain feelings in the wearer: Duro for strength, Black Afgano for bliss, Silver Musk for sexual charisma, and so on. Having tried them all, we certainly have no argument.
The brains (and nose) behind Nasomatto is Alessandro Gualtieri, an Italian perfumer who has created scents for Versace, Valentino, Helmut Lang, Fendi, Diesel, and more. Gualtieri was educated in the art of perfumery in Germany and built a successful career working with artists, niche brands and major designers – but after being rejected more and more for his radical concepts, he decided to strike out on his own. Gualtieri established his Amsterdam-based brand in 2007 and called it Nasomatto (Italian for ‘crazy nose’).
