FROM THE CREATOR OF BLACK AGANO
"This fragrance is an unwise and unfortunate creation caused by bad judgement and care." The Nose.
In the hands of any other creator, this statement might be an apology. For Alessandro Gualtieri, on the other hand, it's a mission statement: Blamage ("disgrace" in German) may be a testament to mistakes and failures, but the result is as vibrantly intoxicating as each of its predecessors in the now-complete Nasomatto line. Inspired by legends of classic fragrances that achieved their unique character through mistakes in the design process, Gualtieri blindfolded himself, choosing four key (and undisclosed) ingredients at random. The perfume was painstakingly constructed from there, a process (portrayed in the upcoming documentary film "The Nose- Searching For Blamage") that took Gualtieri around the world and, supposedly, almost to the breaking point.
