Perfumery makes us think of natural materials, but since 1889, man-made molecules have been the true building blocks of modern fragrance. Nomenclature showcases the ingenuity of these molecules, and here the star is Orbitone - a dry, woody material with an arid quality like a desert night. We also get its peppery aspect, which is delicately balanced with a creamy sandalwood. Smooth and perfectly calibrated by perfumer Patricia Choux. Notes include violet, rhubarb, pepper, cedar, coffee, tobacco, smoke, and struck match, all revolving around the Orbitone molecule.
Nomenclature celebrates design in perfume chemistry by showcasing today’s most inspiring, exclusive molecules. The house explores thse molecules' complex facets and and demonstrates that these man-made hybrids of poetry and science have a beauty all their own.
