    So this is supposed to make you smell like you've been smoking hash? Wouldn't that get you in trouble?

    hehe, very interesting though...I want to try!

    haha yes! two more reasons to try this.

    I've been dissapointed so far with the lack of cannabis notes in Cannabis Santal and Coze by Parfumerie Generale. Should be interesting, to say the least...

    No Cannabis plant material, just the sticky citrus-skunk-labdanum-like resin glands, smashed into a semi-solid brick. If Black Afghano has lots of Myrcene, Limonene, Pinene, and a thick sticky labdanum base, it will smell authentic. I won't buy it, but I'll for certain smell and critique it, to see how close they got. Again, props to Nasomatto for doing this, as it can only help the decriminization/medical/legalization movement.

    Bump.

    I am really intrigued by it as Haschish is the smell associated with some Sufi gatherings. Not sure if it is the same thing as marijuana though, or whether it is really something drug related?

    Anybody yet? I wonder when will luckyscent have it?

    In college, when finances were tight, we'd scrape our bowls and smoke the resin for the residual high. O for a fragrance that reminds me of those lean times. Perhaps I should look for a Pabst Blue Ribbon-inspired fragrance, as well. Bravo, Nasomatto. I'm intrigued.

    Edit: re: Nasomatto's website, kudos to the audio mix that samples the Rolling Stone's "Shattered." A refreshing take on a cool beat.

    I couldn't wait, and got it from Ebay blind. If this is what marijuana smells like, then I missed out on going to high school in USA :-)

    Its definitely one of the better niche scents I have smelled lately. That reflects more on the sorry state of crowded niche field, rather than Black Afgano being something extra-ordinary. My tolerance of "dark" scents is pretty high, and this is definitely dark. After the first few minutes, it seems to be pretty linear - and I consider that a sign of quality nowadays (if it lasts).

    Just FYI to everyone, Hashish and Marijuana don't smell that much alike, by itself or smoked.

    Default Re: Nasomatto Black Afgano ~ new fragrance

    I got my sample the other day. I do own a bottle of Duro and enjoy it from time to time.

    Black Afgano does open with a blast of something very reminiscent of hashish, not quite a 100%, but close anyway. The Nasomatto blurb below does a decent job of explaining their goals. It didn't give me any arousal or temporary bliss. It doesn't smell nasty in anyway. I did keep asking myself is this something I really want to smell like. The answer keep coming back no. BA is more like a "study"in what can be done. Something that teachers and students of perfumery can pick apart in the lab, but I think few will want to wear. It's interesting enough that I recommend sampling just for the experience.


    Nasomatto blurb -
    The new fragrance “Black Afgano” by Nasomatto pays homage to the Orient with its “hypnotic flowers and psychedelic woods”. The perfume aspires to evoke hashish of the highest quality. It was created to arouse and prolong the effects of temporary bliss. Black Afgano is a smoky, syrupy, rough and very strong fragrance that definitely belongs to the range of dark and strong “drug-like” Nasomatto perfumes.

    Temporary bliss, just from the smell? Oh brother. For $150 a bottle, I think I want a little more from my fragrance. (Plus, I don't relish being chased by Police dogs!)

    Female Marijuana flowers (Cannabis Indica or Cannabis Sativa) naturally secrete a sticky funky smelling clear-to-milky-to-amber colored coating of sparkling resin glands, as a defense against insects/dehydration/UV rays:



    [mods remove pics if it offends anyone]

    Those sparkling resin glands is where the bliss is. and the aroma-chemicals as well (which include Myrcene, limonene, pinene, eugenol, citral, terpenes, etc.)

    In countries like Afghanistan and Morroco, for example, these resin glands are rubbed off or shaken off of mature dried flowers, and pressed together into a sticky solid mass, which is then pressed and cut into bars or slabs. In this process, it loses much of the limonene (a volatile topnote), and if the workers aren't clean, gains some dirt, dust, and skin oils. This accounts for why Haschish smells darker than it's source flower/plant.

    I'm very interested in this scent, and am proud of Nasomatto for making such a scent (with such a name) at this time.

    Just heard back from Andrea - turns out they just removed it from the site for now but will turn it back on later. She gave me a link to order a sample, and the site says the full bottles aren't available until August 14th. They are probably just avoiding a bunch of orders that can't be filled yet.

    I don't think that's true at all. I was speaking with Franco from LS a few weeks back and he said that they had received it in to sample at the store but didn't expect it in for sale until mid to late August. Nothing was said about it being a limited edition. I think perhaps it was put up on the site with a little too much haste, and they needed to take it down early.

    Edit: Right after I posted I noticed that it IS on their website still. It's being shipped August 14.

    I also just received my sample of it and the level of intensity has kept me from wearing it in the heat we've been currently having. It is going to be on my short list to wear once the weather turns just a tad cooler.
    The one thing I am getting, more that a hash or cannabis note, is an intense smoky tea note at the top. Mind you that's on a strip and one spray to my wrist. this is going to be an interesting one to wear all over.

    I liked the opening *very* much - bold, uncompromising, nose-assaulting thick, tarry spice-fest - but the dry-down left much to be desired. I found it very lineair after 2 hours and it started annoying me how heady it was. Granted, it was way too hot to wear it, but at one spray it's already semi-lethal. Also got more and more patch the further it dried down, and guess what my nemesis note is. I prefer Absinth or China White from the line.

    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    My friend purchased this from Vienna about three weeks ago, and when I first smelt it, I smelled incense and cloves. Where have I smelt this before...where...where...AHA!!! This smelt exactly like the deep drydown of Serge Noir. I have always admired the drydown, but hated the topnotes and the heart. The drydown was a splendid accord of muted campfire ashes and subtle notes of cloves. My favorite from the Nasomatto line so far! Genius!

    I don't know guys. I'm sampling this for the first time right now and something is really fishy. Why does this smell oddly familiar to their own Duro, just with the sweetness turned WAY down? It's the SAME exact resinous leather that's in Duro. I LOATHE Duro, BA is less sweet, but why bother? It's just a non-revolting version of Duro to me. Don't mean to offend anyone that loves it though.

    Almost my thoughts exactly, I still think i need a bottle of this though, I don't have anything this dark and smokey in my collection as of now. I like BA, then Duro, then China white, but I haven't tried the others yet.

    You know what? I was thinking the same thing, when I briefly tested it a week ago - a strong, raw resinous blast and then Duro all the way...

    I tried Black Afgano at The Scent Bar Friday afternoon. The opening is very tarry, smoky, and sweet. I liked it. Over time, it loses the sweetness and becomes more tarry. In the drydown, it seems very similar to Gucci Pour Homme. I took a shower later that evening and it wouldn't wash off. In any case, I liked it but I already own Gucci Pour Homme and don't need a more expensive version of its drydown.

    I also tried Black Afghano at The Scent Bar this afternoon. Not feeling it. It's not bad by any means and worth trying, however. If you like leathery tar, this is a must try.

    I don't know what I was expecting, but this wasn't it.

    Wasn't excited about this. It smells like Palisander on steroids with the added smoke and tar people are talking about only in the topnotes.
