Dear Cannabis Friends,
today is about Black Afgano - the dark powerhouse of Nasomatto. Here we have it with a fragrance zutun, whose precise description is quite difficult for me. Too extraordinary, too opaque it comes to me, but I'll do my best. Black Afgano starts with a fair amount of wood, which I would categorize as dry and bright. It is quickly joined by a spicy note of some cinnamon and pepper, which gives the scent a fairly ordinary but well-designed start to date. What now follows more clearly and yet paves the way directly at the beginning, is probably the namesake, the figurehead and the heart of the fragrance: the cannabis note.
This announces itself at first perceptible, but still quite restrained and is accompanied by a note that I would classify as balsamic. Here also resonates a small portion of smoke, which I find appealing.
Overall, I like this part of the fragrance but rather less, because I have to think with all sorts of balsamic notes rather of Voltaren, cough syrup or the like. Over time, the fragrance becomes more restrained in the wood and balsam, stronger in the cannabis note. This is the crux of the matter for me: While cannabis in fragrances is arguably a rather unusual and interesting note, when it comes to smell, minds are divided. For my part, I smell every joint 5km against the wind, because I perceive the smell of cannabis extremely intense. Other perfumos don't smell any cannabis at all from this scent, which I can't explain at all. Since I like the smell initially, but then comes along too penetrating, Abzugts in the B grade.
Big plus points there are in terms of durability and sillage, because better gehts probably hardly. Could I the durability unfortunately not fully exhaust, because I had only a very small sample, I can still say: On my skin at least 15 hours and I think that makes even longer without shower. The sillage is brutal. Two small sprays on the wrist begged for attention for a good 8 hours before the scent settled rather skin tight. For the first 5-6 hours, you should be getting a decent buzz with the scent after just 3-4 sprays. Overall, it is stronger in the sillage than Ombre Nomade
and Red Tobacco
, but slightly weaker than Shaghaf Oud
, but you can probably not beat. Nevertheless, applies here clearly: 10/10!
The flacon is a real eye-catcher. Simply minimalist, gloomy, classic and yet striking, beautiful to it is still that the fragrance itself is black.
Overall, Black Afgano is interesting, worth a test and well implemented. From me there is a test recommendation!
