Orto Parisi is the new Amsterdam-based niche line of Alessandro Gualtieri, who has announced he will no longer be adding to his Nasomatto brand.* Orto Parisi debuts with five fragrances: Bergamask, Boccanera, Brutus, Stercus and Viride.
The parts of the body that carry more smell are those where more soul is collected.
The strong smells have become unpleasant to us, because the excess of soul is intolerable to the extent that our innate animalism is repressed and breaking from civilisation.
This project is my garden I have planted, fertilized, cultivated, and harvested. Orto Parisi states that our body is experienced like a garden, and its smells are a true mirror of our soul.
The Nose, Alessandro Gualtieri.
Bergamask ~ the lifestyle of Lombardy and of the city of Bergamo, with bergamot and musk.
Boccanera ~ a gourmand with dark chocolate, ginger, black pepper and chili.
Brutus ~ 'Elegant and untamed', with bergamot, mandarin and patchouli.
Stercus ~ 'animalistic and exceptional'.
Viride ~ 'grasses, herbs and woods of the original tribes from Yemen.'
Orto Parisi Bergamask, Boccanera, Brutus, Stercus and Viride can be found now at Kurfürsten Parfümerie in Germany, in 50 ml Parfum, €138. So far, they are not available online.
*Although there may be one final fragrance to come for Nasomatto.
