China White

extrait de parfum



Alessandro Gualtieri citaat over China White: "This bottle of perfume is part of the Nasomatto project. The fragrance aims to reveal the treasure of a sentimental journey. The result of a quest to reveal the strenght of fragility."

Katie Puckrik Smells: "For a fumehead like myself, the juice in those fancy glass bottles is a drug. So ls:when I discovered a scent called China White -- slang for high-grade heroin -- the name made perfect sense.
China White is an extrait de parfum by niche house Nasomatto (Italian for "crazy nose"). At the first bump you're grooving along, enjoying its old-fashioned, cologne-style briskness, when suddenly it ducks into an alley and morphs into sweet ash and cold cement. Anyway, you go with it, because China White has a mind of its own. What happens next is the smoky powder. Or is it powdery smoke? Whatever, you almost feel like coughing, but instead you breathe in China White's strangely transparent incense.
There's definitely violet leaf in there, which conjures the cold cement, along with a harsh greenness. And there might be some vetiver, a sharp-smelling grass with a syrupy richness. Then a shadow of a rose passes through, and any sharpness shape-shifts the powder into leather. How can China White be simultaneously green and powdery dry? Smoky and cool? Old-fashioned and futuristic? The sweet ash never quite becomes ashtray, instead turning a little salty and, uh, "personal" after a while."

Tom van Perfume-Smellin' Things: "cocaine-dusted roses", which is such an evocative description. But another way to interpret China White might be to take the name literally: white china. Earthy clay, fired to fine porcelain, glazed to a gleam, then shattered into powder. This thing is weird...a little intellectual...and addictive."



 “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.” - Alessandro Gualtieri, aka The Nose
