    A solid woody spicy and completely masculine fragrance which is very simple but well-made at the same time.
    The opening is a heavy and dark combination of smoky woods, some spices and a little bit of sweetness completely in the background.
    The smoky woody/leathery smell remind me of the smell of oud and there are noticeable amount of spices and some sweetness beside it.
    In the mid you have exactly the same smell which only gets smokier and woodier.
    Smell very masculine and bitter smoky woody, but smell very familiar too! nothing new or unique about it.
    In the base the scent gets much smoother and I can smell some kind of soapy vibe beside woods.
    Projection is great and longevity is 12+ hours easy. no problem in these parts at all.
    If you want smoky woods with hint of sweetness all the way through, you will like this one.

    wood and oud

    guess it has a value/ cost index pretty low. You will feel like being closed in a wooden cupboard for days!

    Pros: duration
    Cons: pricey"

    Strong opening. Right away I can sense that comparisons to Dark Aoud are merited, but for better or worse, Duro has a maraschino cherry on top. The oud shining brightly in the center happily keeps things far from gourmand, and certainly more masculine than not. In the drydown, the grenadine fades but never quite disappears. On the whole, it delivers a strong (but not massive) and slightly sweet oud note, even with a hint of powder after a while. Very likably simple. In comparison, Dark Auod is definitely louder, more aggressive, leathery, astringent, and overall medicinal. Duro seems a little more welcoming and friendly. But it is still an oud, so keep that in mind if oud is generally not your thing. Now, if you are wondering if oud is your sort of thing, both Dark Aoud and Duro are excellent. Sample both. While they are distinct enough, they might be duplicative in the wardrobe of a non-oud obsessive. (These comparisons are based on a side-by-side wearing.)

    Duro’s longevity on me was in the neighborhood of 5-6 hours, becoming a very nice skin scent for a few hours beyond.

    I don't know what it is but this fragrance has some kind of aggressiveness to it I cannot stand.

    This is the kind of fragrance you just want to wear if you're properly dressed in a suit, not something you could rock in a casual outfit.

    A must test before buying.

    Nasomatto's Duro is now five years down the road from it's release and has certainly won it's share of admirers and detractors alike. My recent estimation of Duro suffers no doubt from my having previously tested the more recently released Nasomatto Black Afgano and because the two fragrances bear some similarities in their notes. An incensey oriental vibe is common to both scents but Black Afgano has that delicious sharp spicy balsamic sweetness that is so fresh and appealing and never cloys. The oud that features so prominently in Duro is a rather nice one but when Duro and Black Afgano are experienced side by side Duro unfortunately seems as dull as a doornail. Maybe this is what Jacob Marley wore. Black Afgano is a distinctive composition, of that there is no doubt. It wins hands down over big brother Duro every time.
