The intoxicating smell of spices such as saffron and cumin comes out of the bags accumulated in the deposits, ready to fill the wagons going to the market of the day that is about to arise, and perfumes the environment just illuminated by the dim light of dawn. Immerse yourself in the heat of the water, observe the vapors impregnated with sandalwood essence and cedar wood to form clouds of smoke, softened by the benzoin of siam.

Feeling the relaxation of the muscles and the relaxation of tensions, the mind abandons itself to the beauty of our experiences, affections and emotions, held together as the gurjum binds the flowery iris to the precious fig wood, like fog that envelops us in a tender embrace and pleasantly fills our nostrils. The fleeting moment that makes us one with mother nature and makes us face a new day with serenity.

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.
