    Default If you had to pick one Nasomatto...

    Which would it be? Having just purchased Black Afgano, Absinthe and Pardon direct from the online boutique (and being very happy with them) I'm wondering what you guys would hold up as your favourite(s) from the line? Having thought that Pardon would be my favourite, (don't get me wrong, it's great!) I actually really like Absinthe and Black Afgano, almost equally but for different reasons. Be interested to hear your thoughts on this house.

    NUDA without hesitation. Black Afgano is also good.

    You have the best 3 in my opinion. I like Silver Musk for it's long lasting clean smell, but it surely doesn't stand out. If I had to pick 1...Absinth.

    Black Afgano. Duro is a close second,
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    I literally just sampled most of their line 3 hours ago. Here's what I can remember.

    Hindu Grass stank.
    Black Afgano smelled nice and better than I thought.
    Pardon was the best smelling of the lot.
    Absinth smelled good.

    Have Black Afgano.
    Have a sample of Absinth and if money wasn't an issue, lol, would probably buy it.
    Heard good things about Duro and will sooner or later do the necessary and sample it.

    Liked all 5 that I've tried (Silver Musk, Black Afgano, Absinthe, Hindu Grass and Duro), but I would go with either Black Afgano or Duro. 50/50 coin toss, with fingers slightly crossed for Duro.

    tried all of them and only liked Pardon and, up to a certain point, Hindu Grass.

    This one ↓↓↓

    Nasomatto Silver Musk by Nasomatto
    - Initially, one is treated to a swirling mandarin, with its sweetly tart, orangey facet. Lavender, with its fresh floral aspect, commingles with the mardain to create a zesty, herbal presence. A nascent soapiness from white musk emerges in the background. Transitioning, a lightly sweetish cyclamen carries itself to the fore along with a more softly diffusive and slightly powdery white musk. A characteristically aloof iris, with its violet-like, woody facet, wrests for prominence. Segueing, a faint metallic note, akin to metal shavings, ephemerally surfaces. A magical aldehyde imparts its sparkly clean and fresh vibe. And, a mild hedione diffuses its subtly green sensation. The white musk has taken on a waxy brightness. An alluring drydown ensues. This somewhat elegant composition has average projection and very good longevity.

    Very interesting and varied responses. Many thanks. Am I right in thinking that the square-topped bottles are aimed more towards the masculine crowd and the cylindrical aimed to the feminine? Not that it's an issue, just a thought! Looks like Duro might be next on my list, might wait until Autumn though.

    BA, Pardon and Absinth are the one's I got as well. If you're looking for a suggestion for one more, I'd say maybe Duro or Silver Musk.

    If you're asking what my favorite from the line is, I'm say either Absinth or Pardon, but Absinth will see the most action as I live in Vegas and it's friggin' hot here.

    Does anyone else get a very slight Play-Doh accord with Black Afgano?

    For me it`s got to be Duro.

    Does anybody have any Nasomatto samples they'd like to trade?
