Dedicated to Anna, Massimo's grandmother, a strong and proud woman, confident in her own destiny and future. A classic style fragrance, with poudrèe touches that make it sophisticated and add an aura of strong femininity. Her always active mind travels fast, contemplating the possibility of new horizons.

An energetic woman with an unconventional lifestyle, a storm of charm and impulsiveness and a unique style in clothes and in adorning and perfuming herself. We like to speak of Chypre 1942 as a "fur scent", velvety and sensual. A reinterpretation of a classic Chypre accord with unusual hints of vanilla and sandalwood, following the Noble 1942 style.

Everything started with Umberto Nobile, Massimo’s grandfather, a name that has always been synonymous with luxury fragrances. Since the early 30s he represented Nina Ricci perfumes and in 1942, at the height of the Second World War, he decided to open a perfumery for his wife in Rome. It became a family tradition: Massimo’s father did the same for his wife in Naples and also Massimo’s brother, who fell in love with a woman from tuscany, opened a perfumery for his wife.

Moved by love of beautiful things and by passion handed down from father to son, Massimo did something different. In 2004, when Acqua di Parma was acquired by LVMH group, he decided to create with his wife Stefania a brand that represented the Italian elegance worldwide. We’ve never followed trends: the main example of this is in 2011, when the western world of perfumery went crazy for agarwood, we launched La Danza delle Libellule, a vanilla perfume, that became our best seller worldwide. What is important is to keep our sober elegance, that can stand up over time, to meet our customers’ expectations. The first fragrance was Pontevecchio, created in 2004 and distributed in 2005, which marked the beginning of Nobile 1942’s in the new millennium.

We can proudly say that we are one of few companies producing and packaging by hand “in house” our fragrance products. We do this job with care and dedication: all the perfume bottles are filled one by one handily in our laboratory in Genova. In addition to the Italian ingredients, such as bergamot from Calabria and Iris from Florence, we purchase raw materials from where we know they offer the best quality.

But above all, all our ingredients respect high quality standards and the natural process of maceration. Italian excellence always captures our attention: we always look for new artists and artisans that create something unique. We use Damask silk from Lorsica, hand blown glass from Altare, silver filigree from Campo Ligure, Leather from Tuscany.... Our perfumes are masterpieces of Italian artisan work.
