Meo Fusciuni NARCOTICO parfum
Narcotico is a 2015 release from Italian perfumer Guiseppe Imprezzabile, nome de plume Meo Fusciuni. Meo Fusciuni believes that "Today, in this modern era where we can have so many technologies in our support, I realize with happiness that only one thing still really matters: olfactory sensitivity," and strives to create perfumes that are both "material and ethereal," balancing the chemical and spiritual aspects of perfumery. Narcotico, an Amber Woody fragrance, has a scent profile of amber, patchouli, warm spicy, balsamic, oud, woody, smoky, vanilla, musky, and earthy.

From Meo Fusciuni:
"Like any indelible mark I remember each step well. The journey began in the city of Palermo, on the steps of a church, one September past. I knew I was looking for something to make me start writing and feeling. The incessant smell of that threshold I never crossed is still in my olfactory memory."
"After many years I returned to those streets, but I did not recognize any of those faces, new looks and foreign hands approached mine. Fragments of existence, continuous questions about the true meaning of the sacred, perfume becomes smell, hidden, in the old sacristies, among the old pews of the monumental and popular churches of Palermo, in the old closets of grandmothers; each alley holds its own personal scent, an old cloth store, the baker's oven, the barber's shop with its old colonies and the warm scent of pastry shops. On Sundays, I remember, after mass my father would hold my hand, we would walk past the pastry shop on the Corso, my father would buy a tray of cannoli, it was a ritual, a beautiful olfactory memory, the ricotta, the candied fruit, the return home. I had been missing in Sicily for so many years and the snow-white face left the image to a face covered by the thick beard, the hands no longer gesticulate, my mind wonders and the curious nose investigates the space. Narcotico is a perfume inspired by my Sicily, about the relationship with my most remote and visceral memories, emptiness, the depth of being. A search that continues every day, without ever stopping, almost a challenge in wanting to observe, how far the scent of a place can take you. It is a journey to understand who you are, what your true roots are, and the scent of olfactory memories is the medium on which to climb and let go."
"Narcotico was thought, created and arranged, while listening to the album: La Casa del Dolore and Memorie Statiche by Nenia during each of these stages."
