Fantomas by Nasomatto
30ml Extrait de Parfum
Olfactive Family – Woods
Perfume Author – Alessandro Gualtieri
‘Fantomas is an elusive hint towards the transgressive act that has been carried out with an ease of refined precision’ – The Nose
Named for the iconic French villain of page and screen, Fantomas is intended by Nasomatto’s always iconoclastic Nose as “the smell of a sophisticated crime.” There’s a captivating element of the illicit there, a lurid haze of narcotic smoke and glinting gunmetal that feels raw, sensual, and dangerous. Fantomas is as elegant as he is evil, and the fragrance reflects his wit and charm as well, with delightful and surprising tones of laconic warmth and melony freshness. The magic, of course, is in the ever-shifting balance between glamour and danger, between the sinister and the whimsical.

‘It is the process that interests and guides me. I like the feeling that I’m losing control and I’m not the one making the choices. My involvement is to create something that is alive, that will be able to say new things. I want my perfumes to have an intelligence of their own, not just be slave to my meaning’ – Alessandro Gualtieri
