A citrus, woody, incense perfume. Charming Neapolitan decadence. Salty sea air and smoke.
Says creator Nick Steward: “Who doesn't dream of Italy? The people, the food, the style, and romance. I love the idea of ‘il dolce far niente’ (the sweetness of doing nothing!) In particular I’m drawn to the south – for its colour, effervescence, cheerful chaos, its anarchic darker spirit. A visit to Naples always gets the heart racing and makes you feel alive …”
Notes: ginger, pink pepper CO2, Calabrian bergamot, sea salt, ozonic notes, incense resinoid, Fumencens, cardamom, nutmeg, labdanum, guaiac wood, patchouli, Clearwood, birch, vetiver, amber
Why you'll love it
Erupting like a warm crash of Mediterranean spray, Naples occupies the surprisingly harmonious intersection between burnt wood, church incense and coastal sea spray. Are those glowing embers in a beach bonfire or crystalline pearls of tree resin? Feather-smooth tendrils of smoke or a hazy ocean-mist rainbow? All of the above. As it echoes on skin, Naples strikes a fashionably rustic pose; an almost-sweet old-stone aura, serene as the waves lapping at the dock of a painfully picturesque Mediterranean village. But there's something slightly devilish in there too, dancing like a Fellini dream sequence, lying prone like a vaguely sinister artifact in a Roman garden shed. "Naples" is a portal to daily mystery.
