Dr. Frankenstein's cologne
I find Black Afgano a bit too dark and heavy for me to wear comfortably and too sweet at times to remind me of any hash I smoked back in the day but there is still something special about it. It's mysterious and alluring in a rebellious, individualistic, uninviting and troubled kind of way, like looking at old photos of James Morrison or Edith Piaf stained by ashes and the dirty black juice from a bong.

The scent is strong –big cannabis, oud and resin notes–, long lasting and not to everyone's taste but it is ideally suited to a particular sombre mood: ominous, pitch black cold winter nights straight out of a horror book when the fragrance can come to life like Dr. Frankenstein's monster.

Still, one could say it's not as masculine as Duro, not as wearable as Baraonda and not as pleasant as Pardon... but Black Afgano doesn't really care.

Sillagemonster......
What a rich and unusual fragrance.
Recently I was in my city perfumery and I was recommended the Black Afgano. I knew him from hearing. I have to say directly that I bought it right after the test. At the first test smell the fragrance was so strong present that it almost hurt in the nose.
I could clearly smell the herbaceous notes in the top note.
Then the scent struck warmer and darker tones. Oud and incense were well perceptible. Together with the Harzigen notes they resulted in a wonderful composite tone.
I noticed dark and woody scents which harmonized wonderfully with the warm nuances of the fragrance.
Also a light acid was present but this is not citric but probably comes from incense or cannabis. But I can't say for sure.
I just can't get enough of this woody resinous scent composition. I was right in the middle of it. Couldn't take my arm off my nose.
I think the typical Nasomatto flacons are great made and very noble.
Black Afgano has a very high durability.
The Sillage is enormous. One splash is enough to cover all other scents when entering a room. So be careful in the office or small closed rooms. In an airplane, for example, this scent would be a reason for an emergency landing.
My recommendation for all who are looking for an extraordinary fragrance, get the black monster.

“What’ve U been smokin’?”
Beautiful, if you enjoy the smell of weed! It is exactly the opposite of every fresh, shower gel, blue scent that is mass produced.
Right from the bat you’ll get that cannabis rounded up with oud and incense. I also get some tobacco and coffe in the drydown, but the weed and oud are there pretty much all the way.

Projection? About 4-5h on me. Longevity is huge on my skin, and I basically have to wash this off. It lasts me 12-15h on skin. So go with one spray to start with.

If you spray your shirt, make sure it is a dark one. This will leave a stain (black juice).

Also, do not ware this if you are driving. If you get pulled over, the cops will believe you smoked some green. That’s how sweet and strong the weed note is in this joint.

A Quieter Contender of Viril Woody Amber Trend
Given the hype surrounding Black Afgano, the fragrance itself is surprisingly quiet and abstract in general. It opens with a slightly animalic oud accord and acrid burnt incense, but soon mellows into a dense yet clean musk and creamy tobacco, with a discreet amber warmth humming underneath.

Speaking of the cannabis note, I can't vouch for it as I haven't any experience with any kind of drug substance. But the fragrance does have a faint yet sharp herbal twang which I find similar to that in Jardin d'Ecrivains Junky and Smell Bent Mountain HIgh. While this note is fairly strong in Junky and Mountain High, it's really only a whisper in Black Afgano, which I consider primarily a nebulous tobacco oud fragrance.

The fragrance doesn't have much significant development during its almost 11 hour longevity, and remains mostly close to skin.

Black Afgano is consistent in style with the other Nasomatto fragrances, relying heavily on certain synthetic smoky oud accords which unfortunately is not my cup of tea, although Black Afgano is thankfully not as heavy-handed as their later entries. And despite its hype and mystery, it's not that controversial olfactorily speaking. If you enjoy the latest viril woody amber trend, but prefer a relatively quieter fragrance, Black Afgano might be an adequate option to consider.

Dark, dirty, earthy, dull, muddled and borderline evil ,, that one guy we all know thats just not right!
Aww such expectations all the right ingredients were there; Cannabis, Woods, Coffee, Oud, Frankincense Tobacco, longevity and strong sillage , But shocked with all the outstanding positive reviews, if being different makes this perfume good then this is a great perfume, but if you want to feel elegant, sophisticated, luxurious steer clear. I cant for the life of me, understand where there main selling point is hiding, There words "The fragrance aims to evoke the best quality of Hashish" i've smelt growing hashish bushes, i've have smelt the buds on the bushes, i've smelt processed hash and grass, nowhere do i get any of these smells from black afgano... Smoke for the soul by kilian smells off sweet cannabis but black afgano does not, another curiosity i have is when and where in daily life could you use this
it doesn't exude cleanliness "its like having a showering and putting back on dirty clothes"
""These are not the words of a perfume expert but i spent enough money on my collection in the last few years to know whats right""
Just my two cents ,,,Try it before you buy it

Stick your nose in the chillum bowl....
....and don't take it out until tomorrow. A hard hitting, uncompromising beast. Upon application, a smoky tar brush jumps up and paints the whole consciousness. It then relents a little and softens as fast as it hit. The cold tar immediately warms up as if entering a dank, warm tunnel of black, charred wood that has just been painted in creosote. Almost a dizzying experience. It is both repelling and appealing, like a den of re-burned, still slightly fragrant, oud chips, but someone is holding your head down too close to the smoke. A dry paper note of norimbanol intensity strips the warmth away. It doesn't have the sweetness of Afghani black marijuana. This is dryer and more like the experience of a choking hit on a very well used, burned wooden chillum of rather old style, rough, black Lebanese hashish. The dry paper, burnt mahogany feel is so astringent that it almost induces a headache and an urgent need to get some clean air. It isn't going to let you off this trip that easily. This one stays with you until the next day. Any resurgence of movement repuffs the smoke right in your face. Like a smoking party you went to last night and had to go to work in the same clothes. Burned, dry tobacco smoke, a minuscule powdery hint of fruity refreshers, blended with dry paper for this smoky hangover. The drydown is an almost pleasant, smoky, dark wooden shadow when it finally gets to under ten percent of how it began. Definitely a try before you buy. It is so powerful that a vial might last you a long time. I would hesitate to call this a fragrance, more an interesting and genuinely giddying experience. Legal at least.

The Scent of a True Klingon Warrior!
I tested this on the card, not on my skin. I will not comment on its longevity, it is a sillage monster and let me say, the bottle cap design is outstanding and wildly avant garde; it reminded me of a chunk of meteorite or black lava rock...very intriguing texture and I noticed each of the Nasomatto line bottles has a unique material or textural aspect that is quite intriguing in person. The fragrance it self is hardcore and Manly. You will get noticed in this one, not only that but you will immediately assert yourself as the 'alpha-male' and send the plebeians, blushing virgins, ladies of proper upbringing, dandy fellows and gentle souls scattering. But now on to the scent itself a massive dose of hashish smoke and strong bitter expresso grinds blooms into tidal wave of dark oud and resinous incense tobacco ash. There is a pungent green note that pops in and out but mostly I am assaulted by the dirtiest deepest musk, cannabis mixed gauloise cigarette butts, patchouli, true rich oud and high octane coffee. The sillage on the card was just phenomenal, like the Incredible Hulk had just come charging into the clean tiny fragrance boutique an smashed it up. I can't imagine being trapped on an airplane with someone wearing this scent...I would probably pass out. The first thing that comes to mind when I smell this is the brutish, but oddly attractive, Ruler of the Horse people Khal Drago, on 'Game of Thrones' or the Battle tested leader of the warrior Klingons on Star Trek...I can definitely see this working for either of those guys. Please test for a week, observe the reactions you get while wearing this to the grocery store, office and on the train, do not blind buy this one!

Giant Stink Bomb...
I had been waiting to try this one for ages as it has such a cult following and is always sold out and in short supply... I got a chance to smell it briefly in Las Vegas when I was in Barney's, but it did not impress me enough to try it on skin... Fast forward to today where I finally am trying it on skin to see if it fares better... In a word, the answer is a resounding "NO". Black Afgano is potent, dark featuring a bizarre combination of wet tobacco leaf, faux cedar and a bad burnt incense accord. Sillage and longevity of this dog are both regrettably exceptional.

Sorry, Black Afgano is definitely not my cup of tea, and I dare say I recommend avoiding it like the plague. Terrible stuff that "earns" a rare 1 star out of 5.
