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 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.
