This bottle of perfume is part of the project Nasomatto. The fragrance aims to evoke the persuasion of utmost masculine elegance and charm.
Pardon by Nasomatto is a fragrance for men. Pardon was launched in 2011. The nose behind this fragrance is Alessandro Gualtieri. Top notes are magnolia and flowers; middle notes are dark chocolate, tonka bean, and cinnamon; base notes are agarwood (oud) and sandalwood.
Nasomatto’s Pardon takes a dark, woodsy richness and nudges it — ever-so-gently — into a surprisingly softer direction for the Italian niche line.
As it seems fitting with the name’s connotations of polite society and gentility, Pardon tones down the line’s characteristic hard-core intensity. Unlike the brute, narcotic beauty of Black Afgano or the forward wildness of Duro, Pardon wants to persuade you of its masculine elegance and charm, reverberating creating a fragrance at once seductive and refined. Pardon, like the solarized image of the dandy in its ads, manages to evoke vintage while smelling supremely modern.
