Absinth is a wild tumble of earthy browns, woody greens, and dry, bitter herbs, a rare fragrance that you smell and you immediately think of colors. Loamy earth is soon joined by a soft, warm sweetness that seems to appears to be like the ground of a tree-ringed meadow after the first rain of spring. The smell of the earth, the sweet notes of rainand the tinge of young greens and florals not yet in full bloom are all here. Absolutely captivating and more than a little haunting, Absinth captures that bittersweet moment when the earth is about to wake up from its winter slumber. It's an addictive, I-need-to-smell-it-all-day kind of perfume, the kind you make sure to put on your wrists or a dab on a leather watchband just so you can partake in its earthy delights.

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’).
