The Nose wanted to create something that speaks of the lack of eloquence. While creating, he was inspired by the brutalism movement and a character from Italian history – Marcus Junius Brutus, Roman senator who was mainly known for his lack of expressive rhetoric.

This is a fragrance that on the contrary to it’s name, Brutus, is very elegant, polished and subtle, it captures the link between the attraction and repulsion, between the name and the scent itself.
Brutus takes the moment and doesn’t change, it is the meaningful moment of life. It is the essence of life signifying that every life is a matter of one single moment, the moment when one realizes the true nature of himself and who he really is.
The cap is tumbled copper with walnut shells, a very hard and perceived as unbreakable
material of nature.
