    Default Has Black Afghano been reformulated?

    I bought my husband a new bottle yesterday and tried it on my wrist today: it only smells like a washed out shadow of its former self.. the dark oily note is diluted by 1000.
    Does anyone know what happened?

    sad

    Personally haven't heard anything to that effect, but not sure.

    It's very strange. I used to own a decant and that was a totally different story.
    The sillage now is very low.
    There was talk of how they had to discontinue Nuda because of some ingridients in it but I am surprised that BA has turned into a watered down version of itself.

    It is not the same.. I had a sample from a year ago... loved it , beast mode, got a bottle last month... I get 5-6 hours then it is a skin sent.. sillage not as good.. I am disapointed.... still love the smell but yes it is not the same

    Have you tried contacting Nasomatto directly?

    I will contact them once my Internet connection is back but the same is true for Pardon which I resampled recently. The tester bottle in store and the actual bottle my friend got recently are not the same. They have cut down on whatever they used for oud for production, skimmed the cocoa note and amped the cinnamon. It now smells close to Amouage Opus VI.

    Really sad. I used to think of Nasomatto as 'pure' and am upset they may be going off my list of quality niche........

    Man the "vintage" formulation will go for a fortune now. Maybe even as high as Issy Miyake summer edition

    they sell it for 120E already on various online fragrance stores. maybe this are the old bottles and they learnt about the reformulation

    still a great scent but not worth the $6 per ml..... comparing it to other niche I. would pay no more than $2 per ml but you

    It's weird how one person suspects a reformulation then everyone else assumes it's true and writes it off as fact without digging any deeper. My most recent bottle was purchased (by my girlfriend) a few months ago and it's just like my first bottle I received back in 2009. No reformulation, but if you have your suspicions you could always write to Nasomatto and they will respond.

    Well, this is an extrait de parfum and the idea is that you should be using less sprays than your usual EdP, so a 30ml should last you as long as a ~100ml bottle.

    Anything more than one full spray of this would be overkill IMO.
