1001 NOBILE 1942 Perfume Extract
Reading is like magic. An emotion that has neither time nor place, immortalised in a word on the page and therefore ready to be enjoyed anywhere, anytime.
“The idea of 1001“, the new fragrance from NOBILE 1942, says Stefania Giannino, Artistic Director for this Genovese brand, “is precisely this sense of continuity, of waiting, of seduction by words. Nobody gives a better idea of the power of seductive story-telling than Scheherazade, the heroine in Arabian Nights, who managed to enchant the man who wanted to kill her with her 1001 tales. It was this very book, which I adore and which I discovered in the original language during my studies of Arabic at L’Orientale university, that gave me the input for 1001.”
The main player in this fragrance is Papyrus, the writing medium par excellence, since the dawn of civilisation and through to relatively recent times. The fragrance opens on a lively, bright note, with the fresh spices of elemi, fresh ginger and pink pepper interwoven with the juiciness of Red tea, reflecting the optimism and patience of this woman who tells wonderful stories, night after night. The middle accord releases carnal and feminine Rose. There is the Curcuma absolute that, together with Saffron, warms its sensual floral heart.

|About the Brand:||
It all began with Umberto Nobile, Massimo's grandfather, a name that has always had great importance in the world of luxury fragrances. Since the early 1930s he was the representative of Nina Ricci's perfumes and in 1942, in the height of the Second World War, he decided to open a perfumery for his wife in Rome. It became a family tradition: Massimo's father, Benito, did the same for his wife in Naples and also the brother of Massimo, who fell in love with a Tuscan woman, opened a perfumery for his wife. Moved by the love for beautiful things and the passion handed down from father to son, Massimo has done something more. Everything started from an idea that Massimo has had in his mind and heart for years, an idea that is getting stronger and bigger and bigger over time: you can try to hide it but an idea must follow its flow. Thanks to the passion for the world of perfumery acquired in his family and his decades of experience in the great Chanel maison, in 2004, when Acqua di Parma was acquired by the LVMH group, he decided to create with his wife Stefania a brand that represented in full the Italian elegance all over the world.
