"Each of us has in its life someone that is unique to us in some way. It is totally unimportant who the person is, and in what way is he exceptional. It is also unimportant in what role he appeared in our life. Simply his personality, opinion, attitude… has for us in some way an importance. For each of us this person has a name, a different face. Do you know the Nom?"
Nom is the first out and out masculine offering from 1907. Bottled at a concentration of 25% you'd expect the perfume to have heft and yes, there is a fantastic presence to it as soon as it's sprayed. The amber facets are strong and the entwining of lavender, nutmeg, patchouli and cinnamon offers up a degree of recognisable familiarity that only acts as bridge that leads further into the animalic depths of the amber accord.
