One would have imagined that a fragrance like Nero be created by Millefiori years ago. It has all the makings of a classic: woody, musky, masculine. Think Drakkar Noir. Launched in Italy early this year, it wasn’t till June that we received Nero here in Singapore.
I was looking forward to the shipment because I have what I thought to be the perfect container for the fragrance. It’s a small vase produced by Franz Collection, a brand that I used to distribute. This vase was commissioned by the Philadelphia Museum of Art, based on an oil painting by French painter Fernand Leger, titled Man with a Cane. All 250ml of the reed oil can be emptied into the vase.
Leftover black reed sticks from my Selected reed diffuser complete the look.
