Floral Notes, Wood, Musk, Powder
This bottle of perfume is part of the project Nasomatto.
The fragrance aims to uncover the treasure of a sentimental journey.
It is the result of a quest to reveal the strength of fragility.
If the description musky floral sends you running for the hills, please stop in your tracks right now. China White is an achingly modern variation on the genre, blowing an ashy mineral dust over what is essentially a retro, powdery fruity floral, at least in the beginning, before the scent darkens incrementally towards a very deep, baritone base with leathery-tobacco-animal nuances. China White swings between feminine and masculine and every shade in between so seamlessly and with such stupefying confidence that you forget where you started from and you aren’t quite sure where you ended up. Like the rabbit hole from Alice in Wonderland, China White, which by the way is the slang term for highest grade heroin, brings you swiftly into a whole new world, where violets and roses grow from the cold, stony pavements, sweet powder and incense smoke float in the air, and immaculate marble statues in indecent poses appear at every twisted streets’ corners. Call it a futuristic Florence maybe. This unusual yet very inspiring mix of old and new is what makes China White such an original and compelling fragrance. And its name is completely on point: we never knew the smell of flowers snowed in chalky, fine clay dust could be so addictive.
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.
