The Nose – Searching for Blamage

Alessandro Gualtieri è un profumiere italiano che si fa chiamare “The Nose”. Vive ad Amsterdam con la moglie olandese e i figli. Ha progettato profumi per le grandi aziende, ma dopo essere stato respinto più volte per i suoi concetti radicali, ha deciso di lanciare una sua linea nel 2007: Nasomatto. Nel 2013 il suo marchio comprende nove profumi con nomi intriganti come Black Afgano, Pardon e Narcotic Venus. Per il suo decimo e ultimo profumo ha scelto il nome Blamage. Vuole progettarlo passando per errori e fatalità, perché si ispira ad alcuni profumi molto famosi, creati proprio dagli errori durante il processo. La ricerca per Blamage lo porta in capo al mondo, ma più lontano va, più si confronta con la sua irrequietezza mossa dalla perfezione.

 

Alessandro Gualtieri is an Italian perfumer who calls himself ‘The Nose’. He lives with his Dutch wife and children in Amsterdam. He designed perfumes for major companies, but after being rejected more and more for his radical concepts, he decided to launch his own perfume line in 2007: Nasomatto (Italian for ‘crazy nose’). In 2013 his brand represents nine perfumes with intriguing names like Black Afgano, Pardon and Narcotic Venus. For his tenth and last perfume he considers the title Blamage. He wants to design it by making real mistakes and using coincidence, because he is inspired by some very famous perfumes that were created by mistakes during the process. The quest for Blamage takes him to the other side of the world, but the farther he goes, the more he is confronted with his restlessness and drive for perfection.
