Ouds, Woods, Spices, Leather, Patchouli, Resins
This bottle of perfume is part of the project Nasomatto.
The fragrance aims to enhance all the manifestations of male strength.
Leather in perfumery, just as much as in the tactile world, is a very sensual material to work with. Or better said an accord, as the leathery impression is achieved through combining various notes in a multitude of different ratios, so the effects obtained are endless. Perfume becomes textural, bringing to mind anything from the softest whisper of plush suede to freshly tanned hide left to dry. In the case of Duro, which is the Italian for hard, and yes we’re aware of all the innuendos, the mind can’t stop thinking about a thick, smooth, full grain leather jacket worn directly on naked male skin. Sexy, enticing and very hedonistic, Duro is the perfect scent for adding an extra dimension to your attraction powers. Everything in it seems to be overdosed to voluptuary levels: leather, spices, patchouli, woods, resins, resulting in a hot, sticky nebula of unabashed, masculine sensuality that is bound to be noticed. Not for the shy!
‘I start making something but at a certain point it starts making choices by itself.
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.’
