The shameful scent of Dutch Film Festival

If you happen to be around Utrecht, Netherlands this September, do not miss the chance to watch first the documentary/ artistic journey of Alessandro Gualtieri, which is going to be screened in NFF, the Dutch Film Festival.

Alessandro, who claims to be for perfumery what Elle McPherson is for modelling; (One is the “Nose” and the other is the “Body” respectively), is the mastermind behind the eccentric perfume brand: Nasomatto (meaning crazy nose in Italian).

Carrying the title “The Nose- Searching for Blamage”, the hour long documentary unfolds the quest, journeys and experiences of a Perfumer in the way to creation. Gualtieri is traveling mainly through Asia and other parts of the world to trigger his creativity, get inspired and most importantly make mistakes, in order to decide what “Blamage” should smell like.

Meaning “shame” in German, Blamage will mark the end of a cycle, as it will be the 10th and last perfume for Nasomatto.

The documentary, will be screened on September 28th, October the 2nd and 3rd in the Dutch Film Festival and on November 12 in Dutch television.

The Italian Perfumer, who is based in Amsterdam, established Nasomatto in 2007, after years of working for big companies. He has created 9 perfumes for his brand, with “Black Afghano” being probably the most popular one.
