Advertised as “Noa’s brother” and arrived on the market in 2000, Nemo was the perfume for which Cacharel needed two years since its female counterpart, in order to come up with such an interesting creation. Because Nemo represents an olfactory journey imagined as a guide to project a fresh light onto the revelation of the contemporary world, and in the same the foundation for a better tomorrow.
From the olfactory point if view, Nemo is an oriental woody that was developed by perfumer Jean-Pierre Bethouart, who managed to create an olfactory journey of initiation. And this voyage begins on a fresh and spicy blend that contains accords of nutmeg, pepper, cardamom and lavender. This impetuous start is meant to prepare the atmosphere for the next phase, a mid development in which the spicy floral heart is unveiled, thanks to the notes of carnation, geranium, thyme and jasmine. For the final part, Mr. Bethouart imagined an infusion of masculinity that begins with patchouli and cedar, all wrapped in leather and combined with a hint of warm vanilla.
I’m not head over heels in relation to Cacharel as a fashion brand, nor about its fragrances (if it has to be something from Cacharel I would go for the 1981’s classic Cacharel Pour Homme!), however I can’t help to notice that Nemo is a well done fragrance that has all the ingredients for becoming a success. The flacon that holds the scent represents an allusion to history (see the video commercial), being interpreted both as sword and scepter, while the real symbol of this being the wisdom.
