Nobile 1942 - Rudis - EdP
Rudis is the first part of a paradigm shift in the history of Nobile 1942 - a new direction, towards strong, intense and opulent scents - created by the Newcomer of the Year: Antonio Alessandria. The first fragrance of this collection is dedicated to a special characteristic: strength. "Rudis" was the wooden sword that was used in ancient Rome of gladiators during their training. It was designed in wood and for training purposes and should not cause any injuries. However, "Rudis" was also the symbol of freedom and courage. The sword was a gift that a gladiator got, when he got rid of his status as a slave - as a reward for the bravery he had shown during the battles. "Rudis" is the beginning of "Gladiator career", as well as for the ultimate goal: freedom. 
The Fragrances: 
The scent "Rudis" has made ​​no less nose than the exceptional talent Antonio Alessandria for Nobile 1942. He was inspired by Rudis, the wooden sword,  and the fragrance wants to demonstrate the values ​​of strength and gentleness, of struggle and freedom, of life and death, of masculinity and weakness in its dialectic. The fear of the Gladiator on the way to the arena is described with the vinous notes of marc and dry fruits, the Gladiator is trying to drink himself into courage - full of virility he fought his inner fears and grabs his Rudis - ready for battle. Antonio Alessandria pictured the wooden sword by rose and Geranium and cedarwood. The scent of the leather of his armor gives him courage as he enters the arena. His presence takes space in the arena, as well as the strong notes of patchouli, vetiver and incense. 
The Flacon: 
The packaging is a classic Italian. Nobile 1942 has designed these in collaboration with renowned Italian artisans: The charm of Florentine leather, as well as its characteristic odor and its history seduces us... Of course manufactured by hand in technical practice. The logo of Nobile 1942 is stamped into the waxy red of the leather.

The Story behind Rudis:


We are in ancient Rome. A young gladiator runs along the dusty road that leads him to the arena, mustering the little energy he has left in his drunken haze of fermented wine. He tries to banish fear, he tells himself:

"It is easy for the reckless to have courage .I, Mirmillone Actius, know what I am about to face: Death, blood, battle await me. Fear clenches my throat, my legs tremble, freeze and prevent me from walking. 


All of a sudden the cries of the lanista, the trainer, a blow to the shoulders, a sharp pain. I find myself in the arena before an excited crowd. Shouts resound above me, and there is nothing but anger, despair, my loneliness.

I am only 20 years old!!

No I do not give up.

Freedom is worth all this, I am nothing more than a slave, but I shall earn my new life. I will turn the tension that paralyses me into strength.

I feel the throbbing in my temples, I am more alive than ever. RUDIS awaits me.

I shall use all my energy and I shall fight with the fury of a beast and the dignity of a valiant soldier.  I know that the Emperor is watching me, the time has come to put myself to the test.

Oh hated Rome! I shall cease to be a slave and become your HERO".

Because the path leading to the goals that we set ourselves is full of frightening pitfalls. Finding the Strength to face them, overcoming our fears, this is the greatest victory.
