Iconic fragrances

Alessandro's meticulous attention to detail and artistic sensibilities extend beyond his perfumes to the carefully orchestrated launches of his creations. In the case of his latest masterpiece, Sadonaso, Gualtieri orchestrated a brilliantly provocative campaign through Nasomatto's social platforms. The pinnacle was the launch party held in the red-light district of Amsterdam, where attendees were blindfolded in a 'treatment room' before experiencing the sensory indulgence of Sadonaso – the Sweat of Pleasure.

Within his diverse collections, certain perfumes have achieved cult status, notably the iconic Black Afgano and the now-discontinued Hindu Grass. Alessandro Gualtieri remains committed to challenging emotions and pushing boundaries through his evocative and daring fragrances, showcasing his keen eye (and nose) for detail and artistry.
