NANAS

Eau de Parfum


In French, “Nanas” is slang for sassy, confident young women; in English, its sound is a syllable away from “bananas.” Nanas, in turn, is built on a skin musk featuring civet — a material widely mythologized in perfume lore as one associated with saucy women—and iso amyl acetate, a molecule that smells overwhelmingly of banana candy.

To this duo perfumer Carter Weeks Maddox added three different ylang-ylang materials as well as both white and red champaca flower, before folding in lactonic, musky angelica root, a tightly controlled dose of minty, green shiso leaf and a generous dose of warm cardamom. Finally, to laminate the perfume so that it unfolds into increasingly realistic, more discernibly human layers of scent as it wears, he added a blood-red botanical that smells of creamy yogurt and baked goods undergirded by a hint of sharp, acrid, valerian root.

In turn, Nanas performs a reverse stylization of the candy-like banana molecule, elevating it through the perfume’s dry down from cartoonish fantasy into reality, where all around us are deficits of care for other humans. Nanas is a celebration of the sweet, interior fruits beneath the skin.
