The path of the gods is one of the most famous and splendid hiking trails of the Mediterranean coast because of the wonderful panorama between Bomerano and Nacelle, of the small villages scattered on the Amalfi coast, a famous part of the south coast of Sorrento. This incredible route, where the tops of the Lattari mountains stand out against the blue sea towards the island of Capri, still narrates myths and legends to those who live in those places and those who visit them. The name of this beautiful path derives from Greek mythology and speaks of the meeting between Ulysses and the Sirens.

The legend places the islands of the Sirens in Li Galli, the small archipelago located west of Positano. Legend has it that Ulysses had been tied to the main tree to resist the tempting chant of the Sirens, and that the Olympian gods, who came down to earth to avoid a shipwreck to their favorite; but, arrived from the east, in a hurry to save Ulysses, they ended up getting lost in that wonderful coast, leaving a trail of cliffs and wonderful landscapes that now take the name of "Amalfi Coast". The Path of the Gods of Nobile 1942 is a perfumed route among the smells of the Amalfi Coast.

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. Nobile 1942 perfumes are masterpieces of Italian artisan work.
