Italian fragrance house UERMI has just previewed its new fragrance: NU LEATHER. Before our more detailed Persefume focus on all UERMI creations, we are pleased to present you exclusive details on this new launch composed by Master Perfumer Luca Maffei of Atelier Fragranze Milano.

The very first garment worn by humans at the dawn of Time? Leather, of course. Since then, that ‘second skin’,the ancestor of our clothes, has never ceased to fascinate. Jackets, trousers, gloves and accessories in leather for ever remain precious objects of our desire.

Woody and spicy NU LEATHER pays a tribute to primitive human origin, reporting on its label an authentic original sign drawn by a man, or a woman, lived over 30 thousand years ago… when leather, an animal skin became the very first garment ever.

Main UERMI NU LEATHER‘s protagonist is sandalwood, natural raw material rare and to be protected … that is why here it’s extracted through eco-sustainable chain (for every tree felled, 3 new ones are planted). The roots and the heart of the wood are distilled in order to obtain refined boisé notes colored with nuances of copahu e cedar wood. Ancient traditions confer to sandalwood a positive influence on mental and physical well-being, even with aphrodisiac, meditative and spiritual effects. Very exclusive is the suede accord, personally created by Luca Maffei for this composition, reproducing the feeling of a soft leather, tactile and sensuous. The composition is enhanced by an intriguing spice, nutmeg, so intensely peppery and warm, exotic as it grows in tropical climates near volcans and seas. In Cashmeran are concentrated different intense and balanced sensations… animalic yet powdery, aromatic, spicy, fruity and ambery. Sichuan pepper, another natural raw material, is not really a kind of pepper but a peculiar berry with citrusy, pungent and almost metallic nuances. Just as in the most esquisite balanced compositions, this fragrance alternates bitter with sweet, piquant with velvety, citrusy with spicy, attaining a sublimation of the concepts of ‘animal’ and ‘nature’ and taking it to a superior level of elegant and contemporary determination.

For now, UERMI NU LEATHER has been just previewed to the Italian audience during the exclusive launch party – it will become widely available starting from February 2019.
