Nobile 1942

Nobile 1942

Scented Drops from Sparkling Dreams

Everything started with Umberto Nobile, Massimo’s grandfather, a name that has always been synonymous with luxury fragrances. Since the early 30s he represented Nina Ricci perfumes and in 1942, at the height of Second World War, he decided to open a perfumery for his wife in Rome. It became a family tradition: Massimo’s father did the same for his wife in Naples and also Massimo’s brother, who fell in love with a woman from Tuscany, opened a perfumery for his wife. Moved by love of beautiful things and by passion handed down from father to son, Massimo did something different. In 2004, when Acqua di Parma was acquired by LVMH group, he decided to create with his wife Stefania a brand that represents the italian elegance worldwide.

We’ve never followed trends: the main example is that in 2011, when the western world of perfumery went crazy for agarwood, we launched “La Danza delle Libellule”, a vanilla perfume, that became our best seller worldwide. What is important is to keep our sober elegance, that can stand up over time, to meet our customers’ expectations. The first fragrance was Pontevecchio, created in 2004 and distributed in 2005, which marked the beginnig of Nobile 1942’s in the new millennium.

Nobile 1942 has a commercial organization able to support, through a rigorously selective channel, both the distribution of its products and the exclusive national distribution of foreign products of considerable value, personally chosen by Stefania and Massimo Nobile, during the usual research and updating trips.

In addition to the italian ingredients, such as bergamot from Calabria and iris from Florence, we purchase raw materials from where we know they offer the best quality. But above all, all our ingredients respect high quality standards and the natural process of maceration. Italian excellence always captures our attention: we always look for new artists and artisans that create something unique. We use Damask silk from Lorsica, hand blown glass from Altare, filigree from Campo Ligure, leather from Tuscany…. Our perfumes are masterpieces of italian artisanal work.

    Nobile 1942 - Muschio Nobile Muschio Nobile is a shared / unisex perfume by Nobile 1942. The scent was launched in 2011
    Olfactive Family : FLORAL MUSK Musk and Amber have always evoked aphrodisiac atmospheres. The love of which they become ambassadors, however, in Muschio Nobile, deviates from the carnal instinct, typical of animal musk (whose use is now obsolete), and assumes the transparency of a hyperuranic love, which enhances and raises the soul, without affecting its purity. “A good smell”, a new interpretation of white musk by Stefania Giannino. Clean, pure and cristalline, it’s a very intimate perfume that people feel if they come close to you. Conventionally musk is a considered a feminine smell, but thanks to the balance of its ingredients, Muschio Nobile is perfect also for men. That’s why it’s the best seller in one of the most important barber shop in Milan, where clients are 99% men!   Top Notes: bergamot, pepper, white tea, carrot seeds. Heart Notes: iris, white musk, jasmin. Base Notes: musk, amber, benzoin,  sandalwood.

    Nobile 1942 – Malvs

    , , , ,
    Nobile 1942 - Malvs Olfactive family: ORIENTAL INCENSE Hiding a secret! There is nothing more natural because no one, not even science, will ever be able to dig into our minds and hearts. Even the truth machine is not infallible. Hidden and overwhelming truths hide imperturbably in our subconscious and force us to manipulate reality to make it perfect for others. Behind the illusion of knowing others and exposing themselves through the images and words spent on social media there is clear evidence that what we write or what we read is the mirror of what we want to be and not of what we are really. Evil lurks in each of us and we hold it in check: envy, cowardice, contempt, hatred can lead us if exasperated to unimaginable and unmentionable acts. The secret will remain hidden in a casket within us and only comes out when we speak to ourselves in front of a mirror: because we cannot escape from ourselves alone. Unless a tempting devil does not free the secret from the chains. Malvs is a mix of sacred (incense) and profanus (apple) notes perfectly blended! Top notes: apple, frankincense, pink pepper Heart notes: incense, cedar, myrrh, amber Base notes: Guaiac wood, vetiver, musk, vanilla, santalwood
