Nasomatto Black Afgano Fragrance Review
* Black Afgano was inspired by the smell of cheeba, or high class weed. Don’t worry, it doesn’t actually smell like weed – the important word is inspired.
* The immediate top notes are vetiver, smoke, patchouli, and tar- with a touch of menthol. It goes on feeling dirty but in a sexy way.
* The juice itself is black and just looks dark and evil when compared to most fragrances which are lighter in color.
* After a few minutes, the fragrance sweetens up with a dense resinous feel of cloves, cinnamon, and tar- combined with an incense that might be used to cover up the smell of smoking weed.
* Oftentimes patchouli is associated with a dirty hippie smell. The patchouli in the base is more of what a motorcyclist or a leatherman would wear, mixed with amber and dirty vanilla.
* Black Afgano is sold as a highly concentrated extrait. If you apply lightly with one spray, it is a skin scent with mild silage – anything more and you will be broadcasting. If you’ve got the confidence to pull it off, Black Afgano is definitely a statement maker.
* The longevity is epic – you will most likely smell Black Afgano after you shower the next day.
Summary: Black Afgano is the closest that I’ve come to a holy grail fragrance as it is dark, evil, and resinous with enough sweetness to contrast. It’s definitely a fragrance that everyone should experience firsthand, but it isn’t right for everyone. As much as I love this fragrance, my only complaint is that the cap is not that functional – it’s hard to put on and take off. That said, Black Afgano is the first fragrance that I have ever used a full bottle of.
