Description

Meraki

Meraki from Fort & Manle is a dark tribute to what is arguably one of the most legendary fragrances of all time, Shiseido’s Noir Name.

Nombre Noir, “The Black Number”, is a fragrance shrouded in speculation and mystery. It was the tragic undoing of perfumer Jean Yves Leroy, who allegedly took his own life shortly after the perfumes demise. Under the direction of Serge Lutens and Yusui Kumai, they set out to make a “western fragrance”. However, every aspect of the fragrance, from the exorbitant costs of the composition to the intricate packaging was at a loss to Shiseido. In the end, the flacons were deemed defective, thus Shiseido destroyed all remaining stock for sale.

In creating Meraki, Rasei Fort was not trying to recreate the aroma of Nombre Noir, which he possesses but has never dared to open. However, based on the notes, he strove to create a white flower inspired by the vintage, strongly based on the delicate osmanthus flower that is somewhat synonymous with the original.

In any case, Meraki is a tribute to what the Nombre Noir represents. The passion and sacrifices of the perfumers and their relentless fervor to create individualistic and unique fragrances. Those who spare no expense to create a beautiful fragrance and work hard to refine and perfect their art.

So this is the journey to Meraki, a magnificent and sumptuous blend of sparkling aldehydes, mouth-watering fruits and exquisite and lush flowers. Equal parts vintage and haute couture in that inimitable Fort & Manle style, it’s a scent that’s both seductive and deliciously wearable, a creation of its own but with its compelling influences at hand. In other words, it is a perfect creation of Rasei Fort. And given its extremely limited availability, only 300 bottles (packed in exquisite wooden boxes) available worldwide, we believe it is a worthy successor to Nombre Noir in every sense.

Perfumer

Fort & Manle - Rasei Fort

Rasei Fort es un perfumista autodidacta y su marca Fort & Manle es una perfumería independiente y artesanal. Rasei es el único fundador y dueño de la marca.

Su abuela destilaba rosas en aceite, que era su pasión y su profesión. Crecer en este ambiente particular fue su introducción en el mundo de la perfumería y es por esta razón que la rosa es un elemento constante en la mayoría de sus creaciones.

Obsesivo en su enfoque, Rasei mezcla meticulosamente aceites artesanales, extractos y el mejor Oud que existe. Los resultados hablan por sí mismos, realzando realmente la fragancia, junto con el rociado de las moléculas aromáticas más eficaces. Rasei Fort continuamente hace referencia a la historia y a las culturas variadas, incluyendo su propia y rica herencia turca, recorriendo el mundo en busca de las mejores materias primas y combinándolas con sus inspiraciones, evocando la pompa y la pompa de los imperios de antaño.   Esto ha dado como resultado la creación de composiciones lujosas que combinan el mundo moderno con la sensibilidad del “Viejo Mundo”.
