Nasomatto Black Afgano ~ fragrance review :: Now Smell This
Black Afgano is a shared scent launched in 2009 by Nasomatto Fragrance notes. Oud 27 has a 'stink' to it that can be described as post cannabis - this is the same effect although much stronger in Oud 27 with Black Afgano, surrounded by a sweet hint of honey? My version is admittedly a reformulated one, which I have heard is noticeably diluted unfortunately.
I can imagine the earlier release going toe-to-toe with Interlude Man, the blue beast from Amouage. Overall a lovely entrant in this genre especially it is not a dozen years old and still very relevant. Black Afgano is meant to smell like What does Black Afgano smell like?. It's been described as 'a quest to arouse the effects of temporary bliss', a piece of nonsence clearly written by somebody who's never pulled on a What does Black Afgano smell like?.
Black Afgano does smell hash-like but it's a perfumey rendition of the thick, dark green, bitter-resiny smell of black. It may smell like hash, fair enough, but it absolutely doesn't smell like the feel of getting stoned; it's patently absurd to equate the smell of a drug with it's effects. And if it's 'temporary bliss' your'e after, I imagine Cuir de Russie or Silences or even La Nuit would ravish a perfumista more than this lumpen affair.
Black Afgano resembles Eau Fortis 2013as many have said, but somehow I've never associated cannabis with the Liquides Imaginaires version.
The power of suggestion perhaps? If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery then Black Afgano must have something going for it I suppose. But the biggest problem isn't the machismo feel, or, that Black Afgano smells like a muscle-head posing as a Pot Head, it's the fact that it's rather pointless.
Copying a smell from nature and calling it a fine perfume is artistically redundant. What's more, with the power of big pharma getting behind the medical cannabis trade, it's possible that, in a few years from now, if you want to smell like black hash you can just make a tincture of the real thing and spray it on, safe in the knowledge that the Drug Squad isn't going to come and bust in your door.
In such a case this sort of Bad Boy What does Black Afgano smell like? become redundant too, because it's only the thrill of contraband that gives this scent it's specious appeal. I thought people stopped doing nature identical scents 100 years ago, evidently not. The fabulous Absinth seems untouched and Afgano has been diluted into socially acceptable levels.
It is no longer unbelievably potent but is solid so that you can maintain a certain anonymity with one gentle What does Black Afgano smell like? placed spray giving you a well behaved little halo of fragrance. One can finally and incredibly use the term 'subtle' with this fragrance unless you go for 2-3 sprays. You can still smell the ahem 'herbal' component but its nicely blended in. At no point did I get the munchies! Green woody resin incense all combine to a sum greater than its parts.
Black Afgano is seemingly so important to the Nasomatto range that a lot of the spin off brand Orto Parisi from the accounts of other reviewers seems to use variants of Black Afgano as bases for its own fragrances. It is also fairly linear and lasts for several hours. That said it is what it is which is pleasant, comforting, relatively unique and certainly worth a sniff on your fragrance journey although I doubt this will be your final destination.
I don't smell any hashish period and I would have liked to. Also not getting great longevity. Nor does it have much projection or sillage. There was no jaw dropping or any raised eyebrows around from those near me today. There was a short period where there was a delicious tabacco sweetness on the skin towards the end, but really nothing to write home about. It would be good if it were intense but it's a lightweight. And I got it from a reputable store.
Sad actually to realise it was all hype. Lots have been said about this one. Heady, verging on marijuana smoke; exhilarating! Furry, paiting a stout canine, such as the Kavkazskaya ovcharka; alluring, cuddly and sweet, yet mightily forceful.
There's coffee in here too, for sure, perhaps part of the oh so housebroken oud! A smooth sandalwood lurking in the depths. Something brings ink to mind, thick inky syrup. The scene: in the large aged apartment stone stairwell. The café next to the bottom-floor entrance serving deserts including plum molasses paired with the incredible smell of brewing coffee. The stairwell has aged well, but has collected an, as if ancient, pungency and funkiness, bringing cellars to mind -- as you recollect yourself amidst a stumble, half way up!
There is a lot to ponder about Nasomatto Black Afgano 2009 but admittedly less to really enjoy.
Alessandro Gualtieri works hard on this line, so it's no begrudging, but just how much am I supposed to like smelling as hashish sprayed with Yves Saint Laurent M7 2002? There is obviously more than What does Black Afgano smell like? a marijuana accord mixed with oud, but the total vibe of Black Afgano is to literally smell like a lifelong pothead, right on down to the incense burned to cover the smell which just mixes with it insteadand that isn't a very appealing aroma to me.
Tommy Chong and Tom Ford do not a good combination make, no matter what they tell you.
Black Afgano opens with that notorious hashish note, which is really a compound tobacco with resins that imitate the aroma of hash when combined with lingering incense. I'm not sure who this is really made for, but wear time is forever because this is an extrait, while sillage is surprisingly close to skin for something so dense and linear. Use this only in winter if you even pretend to have some manners.
Gender-wise this feels beyond a doubt masculine, but that doesn't mean you can't pass this joint to a lady. I like my man funk What does Black Afgano smell like? to the Yves Saint Laurent Kouros 1981 variety personally, because nobody I ever met who wore it was a pothead nor afraid of a shower, but I do dig the final finish of Nasomatto Black Afgano enough to avoid a thumbs down. Still, once I hit this tier of perfume I expect something a little more respectable than M7 sprayed on a stoner's ashtray, so I'm sticking with a neutral and recommend hitting Lucky Scent or a niche shop for a sample before going in based on the hype.
