'Matcha Nono' is the perfect spring scent as its lead note is almond blossom which is light, creamy and full of sunshine. It is also a very interesting cultural melting pot, with Japanese Matcha tea, yuzu and cherry blossom, a touch of Baklava from Turkey (which conjures the Pio Nono pastry of Granada) and finally a delicious combination of cinnamon, white chocolate and pistacio. Gourmand fragrances often leave me cold however this is absolutely glorious and moreish - once you smell it you will be hopelessly addicted like me!
Top Notes: Cherry Blossom, Yuzu, Hinoki Wood
Heart Notes: Matcha Tea, Almond Blossom, Pistachio
Base Notes: White Chocolate, Cinnamon, Musk
Ricardo is an incredibly exuberant olfactory ambassador and totally charming and we were like two excitable children comparing notes. Fortunately for me he had some samples of his work with him and it was a real privilege to smell them with their creator and learn about their inspiration and the incredible ingredients that he has used. His background is no less fascinating as he is half Columbian and half Spanish and a successful Fashion Designer to boot! Incredibly well travelled with qualifications in historic textile conservation, Ramos is also an avid collector of ancient banknotes (!!!) so this is a man of great passions and I think that this is abundantly apparent in his perfumes. I love talent and this man has it in spades!
