There is a new fragrance in town called Rudis! A co-creation by Nobile 1942 and the Newcomer of the Year: Antonio Alessandria. Rudis takes you back to the Romans, where the gladiators ‘the swordsman’ were fighting for entertainment. The wooden sword they are using by the training is called Rudis. Antonio Alessandria and Nobile 1942 did a lot of research about the way of living of the gladiators.
The fragrance captures the different parts of the gladiator’s journey: the red wine he drinks, the sword he grabs and the fight he is fighting. That’s why the fragrance opens with a rich mix of whiskey and leather, infused with tart fruits, smoky wood and saffron. After that it develops with roses, patchouli and other spices into a balanced unisex fragrance with a masculine tone.
Besides the fragrance the packing is also a very interesting given. Handmade from Florentine waxed leather by craftsman in Italy. The logo of Nobile 1942 is stamped into the waxy red of the leather. Because the whole process takes a lot of manual work, there is per month a limited number available.
