nasomatto black afgano notes

Awesome, strong and longlasting perfume. Pissing off consumers with more watered-down product would be a negative in the long term, in my eyes, and I know some brands like Ormonde Jayne have vowed (on the record and in an interview) never to reformulate their fragrances, in part for those reasons. One to a maximum of two sprays would be enough to flood entire stairwells or subway stations with the crunchy scent of marijuana. The cannabis note is the essential element to a structure which otherwise would have been perhaps too dry, smoky and sharp.

I can’t fathom it, in some ways. Thanks for the tip and heads-up on Carner Barcelona.

My story with Black Afgano began at the age of 17 one night, when I was totally drunk on my way home and entered the almost empty bus.

Finally I can make out some quite prominent vetiver/tobacco notes, adding to the “greenness” which the general nose picks up. Flickers of tobacco and leather lurk at the edges, but they never feel distinct either. *Note on Kephalis, it’s a great aromachemical but I have smelled it in some compositions and it was horrid, like any “sweet woodsy” aromachemical, some people tend to rely on it too heavily for their base/bridge.

My experience with the sillage, however, was wholly consistent with all the reports; everyone agrees that it is a scent that doesn’t project much and which remains very close to the skin.
