Nemo Fragrance Reviews

1997 called...It wants to know if you want to go see a Tom Cruise movie.

Though, to be serious, Nemo has a dated feel to it. Notice i did not say "smell", but rather feel, as the texture of this frag is slightly metallic and dry. I might be associating Nemo's metallic quality with the cold monochromatic fashion sense that was popular in the mid to late 90's. That may sound like a bad thing but to me it's totes bitchin!!

When it comes to the scent, Nemo is mainly leather and spices softened up by vanilla and florals. The first couple of minutes on my skin were quite worrisome, as the vanilla was front and center. Thankfully this dies quickly, but not fully, and the leather/spices start to take over, revealing a slight, albeit watered down similarity to an accord found in House of Matriarch's Blackbird. At the perimeter of this, are the florals; drying up and shaping how the spices and vanilla play off each other.

This was wonderfully blended and lasts a good while. When i wear this i have passing thoughts of H of M Blackbird, D&G By, Carven Homme and to a lesser extent Costume National Homme. Perfect for fall and winter. Overall, 8/10

An amazing dry, spicy blend. Cardamom and nutmeg hits you hard. Leather and flowers. A hint of smoke maybe from the leather. A bit sweet but in the background. Solid longevity, highly complemented great projection. With a very unique bottle. Nemo is an oriental, spicy discontinued gem.

This scent is unexpectedly hard to describe and "get". It's a sort of meditative, enigmatic fragrance built around a fascinating accord of mineral notes, slightly aquatic too, with contemporary and synthetic woody notes (Iso E, cedar, cashmeran), frankincense, violet/floral notes, perhaps bergamot and orange blossoms, nutmeg and other spices (mainly nutmeg, however), a hint of leafy notes, and a subtle white musks creaminess. It has a sort of overall slightly sticky and aquatic flawlessness which perfectly blends with the woody-incense notes, the spices and the floral sweetness, and makes the whole blend smell quite like nothing else. Plus the composition is really tight, dense, compact and harmonic, quite hard to "dissect". It has definitely a '90s vibe underneath, and honestly reminds me a bit of Le Male at some points, but all I can say is that this smells terribly good, pleasant, cozy, even captivating and haunting, in a really peculiar way. Don't know why exactly, but the blend of natural, almost "new age" notes (mineral, aquatic, incense, aromatic woods, addictive spices) with the bold synthetic feel - not plain or cheap, though - makes me think of 1990's virtual reality, that kind of exotic-natural, almost esoteric places and settings recreated with that fascinating, geometric aesthetics of primitive computer graphic of the Nineties – think of mid-90's videogames, animations, or again "new age" videos, or musical videoclips. That's a kind of heritage that has always intrigued me a lot – that lo-fi, post-modern, computer-driven "mysticism". A fascinating, and undoubtedly well-made scent. The only "con" is that it may get a bit cloying after a while (but more likely you'll crave for it, so not a problem). Delicate and sophisticated drydown. Happy to have blind-bought it for pennies.

Finally got around to trying Nemo, which I'd been wanting to do for a long time. It's certainly hard to find, especially considering the small but devoted cult following it seems to have on various fragrance sites across the internet.

So, before I dive into my review, I'll just give you a summary ahead of time: I like it. A lot. Does that mean I LOVE it? Well, I'd have to try it some more. So far, though, I really do enjoy Nemo.

Basically, on my skin, Nemo is a lush, heady incense fragrance. I don't get any particular kind of incense, but it smells high quality, not like a head shop or anything. The incense is boosted by two accords - first, a somewhat medicinal camphoraceous accord, which lasts for about half of the fragrances lifespan, and then a rich lavender accord which stays for the entire trip. The lavender and incense combination bring Nemo, at least on my skin, in the neighborhood of... Antidote! That's right, Nemo, at times, reminds me of Antidote by Viktor & Rolf, but since Nemo came first, I guess I should say that Antidote reminds me of Nemo!

Despite these similarities, though, I'd say there's something in Nemo that makes it just... better. That camphor-esque accord I get is to die for, and the entire thing is just more lush than most incense fragrances in general. On my skin I'd say it lasts about 7 hours at the most, but for the entire time the projection is quite strong, so heavy application is not necessary. I'll definitely be buying a bottle of this soon, what a shame it was discontinued!

Nemo... meaningful name (and meaningful model), ugly bottle, beautiful scent.
Guess? They discontinued, of course.
Nemo was one of the few male colognes I could stand when it came out. It was a complete scent. Nothing brainbrashing approach, nothing screamy, no "sporty" edge (for what that means), no silly acquatic edge turning putrid on skin like your home organic trash, no pretention. Almost naif, both jus and presentation, but what a treat it was for my feminine nostrils to smell it on a male skin, better if a beloved one, of course. My enthusiasm was not totally shared by the wearer, who moved to something more "in the stream" after Nemo, something he could show the name in clubs to teenage girls in search of rich guys. Who cares? Nemo was a spicy honest pleasure and was not expensive.
Lots of spices of the pepper type, caraway, carnation, geranium and leather, but never choking leather. And labdanum to make everything a little rounder still very warm and masculin.
I knew nothing about labdanum then, not even its existence, but Nemo took me regardless of names and lab-labels. Longlasting and average sillage at the fraction of the price of recent ones, poor in the composition but glued to skin with Vynavil, like their female counterparts.
Gone.

I am just getting around to trying this, I can see the similarities to midnight in paris but I would have to say on first sniff I would rate this as a higher love for me.. this is a wonderful fragrant scent. I think this would work well in close quarters, I would put this on my romantic shelf..so much warmth..
really liking this, at first I get the sweetness but some spicyness that soon follows the opening of this. that is what I love about this site. I tried this based on the reviews on this page.. tried two new fragrances this week and both were positive hits for me. this one to me is not age specific I do see it as a more mature type of fragrance maybe someone who has been around the block a couple of times but this would smell wonderful on anyone who would chose to wear it.. I have seen some smaller bottles that I could try and will probably do that, as it looks as though the larger sizes are climbing in price, not sure where the retail point was on first release, this reminds me of the pure malt craze . I got this sample from the perfumed court as I was curious. glad I did, but like everything else, my timing was off.

A bold fragrance for men. Nemo is sweet but with a very edgy, urban grittiness. Nemo's labdanum note is wet, earthy, and vegetal. Almost metallic. As it dries down, you are able to smell caraway, pepper, and understated vanilla. The spicy notes in this fragrance typically would not be paired with leather, which makes Nemo very novel and fresh. The composition is in a similar vein to Midnight in Paris and Bvlgari Black

Nemo's bottle is handsome, particularly in the largest 3.4 oz size, where the minimalist sapling-like bottle grows into a mighty tree. For as bold and edgy as this scent is, it would make sense for it to have a larger sillage than it does. This discontinued fragrance seems to be disappearing as we speak, although there are still a handful of reasonably-priced bottles on eBay. Pretty soon you'll have a hard time Finding Nemo! Har har.

I am a woman and usually not fond of typically male perfumes on myself.
But I remember testing Nemo by chance soon after it came out, I think because the bottle intrigued me.
And I instantly fell in love with it, bought the bottle and wore it more or less every day.

It's an exciting, spicy scent that on me changed its character quite remarkably throughout the day, going from spicy-fresh to a mellow, woodsy vanilla, from brash and bold to subtle, almost subdued.
Not just in the usual way a perfume progresses from top- down to the base note, but almost like changing moods, full of energy when the day begins, then settling into an encouraging familiarity, and ending in a relaxing but still strong presence.
And equally alluring in all its stages.

At the time, this fragrance was me, a signature if ever there was one.
But eventually, I drifted off towards a new fragrance and forgot about Nemo.
I think I must still have half of the second bottle somewhere.

It's a shame that it was discontinued. It certainly deserves to still be around.

I think and feel that this is the best fragrance I ever had. It is got an alluringly lingering aura and the 'pinewoody' aroma makes it just loving for me. Unfortunately I have only one bottle and have failed to get another! What I have is just about run out and it comes out only on very very special occasions. Well.......................

This is one of the Frags that I have which is an actual original formulation and I can tell the difference between Nemo and some of the catastrophic re-makes I own
Its sticky and dry at the same time and quite heavy when its gets hot so I suggest evenings or cold weather.

Great fragrance. Spicy with the cardamom overload, but it has a modern fell which I love. Creamy with a touch of incense. I don't agree that this is a sweet fragrance at all. Discontinued gem. 9 out of 10.

Nemo is a creative masterpiece it smells light at first spritz then it quickly becomes heavy, creamy and the stops short of becoming too sweet and as it settles it somehow oscillates between dry woody leather and heavy sweet spicy (again not too sweet) which ever whiff you get is sure to please you the wearer. The best of both worlds. If you can find it, buy it and really enjoy it

This is a creamy type of fragrance, without much note separation, though there's an herbal/woody element that seems to be trying to force its way out. It's at least a little sweet and could get cloying, but I think that what prevents this one from becoming irritating is good quality ingredients, unlike several similar fragrances that came later. You either like this scent or you don't. I don't think it's the kind of fragrance that you can learn more and more about over time, so sample first. After perhaps four hours it became a skin scent, but I only sprayed once. If you like this I suggest you hunt down a bottle because it's the kind of designer fragrance you may not experience again in your lifetime, since ingredient quality is such an issue these days and niche companies don't seem interested in creating scents like this (or don't know how to do it).

Nemo is a very pleasant semi-sweet leather fragrance that sadly is out of production. I sampled it many years ago and it didn't make an impression then, but it does now! A must for people who also like spicy scents.

I bought a 100ml bottle of this but I have to say I'm not that impressed with the scent considering the very high price I paid for it . The scent isnt bad but it is very familiar to me I'ts like Juicy Couture 'Dirty English ' but with an added sweetness. I do like the bottle shape but the scent on its own isnt something I would normally wear . I might spray this on with Dirty english to add a sweetness that the latter lacks .

Nemo, I found the papers, and I must say I was intrigued that advertising does very much.After some time I decided to buy the 30 ml while not knowing the fragrance, was one of the few that I bought at random, but are was lucky. opening fresh and spicy astounding, while the solid core and dense leaves the place in line at the leather patchouli and vanilla.
Vibrant and hypnotic, the effect is the Pied Piper of Hamelin
the same combination with music, 100 steps to the right 100 and left again do the leak turnaround attentive to the river ...

This is my absolute favourite, however I rarely use it, since it's so special and very rare now.
When it was released I didn't care much about it, first impression was not magnefic and the name was off putting for me. I guess the name NEO instead of NEMO would have been better.
But later it grew on me. The bottle is absolutely amazing, carefully designed and structured, even the spray button is special as it is a metal ball that spins.
The reason why this amazing product was discontinued I think is due to its expensive production cost and it didn't sell that well to raise satisfying profit. It's clear that the bottle was very expensive to produce (next to a simple Chanel bottle) and the juice is of high quality nevertheless. It wasn't that popular to hold up the cost of production.
Anyway, Nemo was still a very special release, just take a look at the promo pictures, watch the very expensive and also very impressive video ad (I love it!), the bottle, and the fragrance itself.
It's not a playful scent I admit. It's a slightly (not cloying at all!) sweet, and very deep woody and spicy fragrant compositon. I don't know yuzu but if that's what makes the opening so "bright" I would love it. But in general, it makes a masculine and even mystical impression (not because of the inscence).
They will never bring it back, I'm sure. Nemo was too sophisticated for mass consumption.
Some say that Allure is a bit similar to Nemo but I tell you that I don't find them similar at all, Allure can't be used to replace Nemo at all, they are very different!

I initially ordered a small sample of this one (together with a gift for my wife) because I really couldn't find it locally to buy....NOW (05.11) I have a large bottle and I couldn't be more happy.
It has a very spicy top with strong cardamom & lavender and also a bit smoky-sweet (nutmeg). After 1 hr it settles down to a flowery-resiny middle, one of the best, still peppery-spicy, evolving in 2-3 hrs in a wonderful warm & incensy base aroma that stays like this at least 6 hrs on my skin. I partially agree with 'jasonx': it is only little resembling to V&R's Antidote, but with a heavier/spicier overall feeling, and mostly much better & natural done. My rank 10/10 - in my top 5 all times. ☣☣☣☣☣

Too bad it is discontinued. I really loved it and it is excellent: it has those classic vanilla notes you also find in Allure, but still it is stronger, more peppery and mysterious. They should bring it back.

Sweet, spicy-woody, quite unique. I have to say I like it quite much. It's very comforting, for every ocassion. It's close to the skin, medium-longlasting. I can't understand why it was withdrawn from the market.

I used to think this is too spicy to take.maybe it was because of the publication pic,showing a young man,with black long hair and red skin.actually it's better than the publication.it starts with soapy strong notes,which will fade away easily and become mild.it's a bit spicy and woody,but very mild that can be smelled hardly!but it doesn't fade away.it reminds me jungle,fresh woods and making fire for lunch.I can suggest the name "survive".but now that it wants to be the brother of Noa,the smelling is very similar,but the bottle is so different.
