“The fragrance is the result of a quest for the overwhelming addictive intensity of female sexual power.” The Nose.
Well, now! How can we top that? Narcotic V is indeed intensely feminine, a no-holds-barred buttery and sweetly rich tuberose. It isn’t cutesy or giggly… it plants one high heeled foot down on the ground and announces its presence with a flourish. There are very few fragrances we’d label absolute and total mankillers, and this is one of them. It doesn’t apologize for its outright femininity or try to hide it… it’s out there, one hip thrust out, chin in the air, eyes flashing and celebrating the devastating beauty of the sweet, white tropical flowers that inhabit it.

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’).
