    Default Nasomatto Black Afgano vs. Kinski

    For you who have tried both: Which one is the winner on your opinion? (and why?)

    Can't afford both at this moment - will buy either one, the other *maybe* sometimes later....

    Kinski by light years... Black Afgano just smells weird in a very bad way. One of the worst I have ever sniffed for sure. Kinski on the other hand is different in a very *good* way, IMO.

    These two are both in my collection but are in different leagues. To compare the two is unfair to Kinski. Black Afgano wins.

    Been smelling the last 2 hours my both arms. i have a sample of BA on my right arm and Kinski on my left-.trying to make up my mind which one i like more.
    I tend to like Kinski a bit more because of the (overly)sweetness of BA. BA is interesting and not bad, but maybe too peculiar and weird like drseid wrote. I worry a bit when and where i'd wear it.

    Own neither but have tried both. Of the two I'd pick the latter although not really a fan of either.

    Kinski's more adaptable, but I do like Black Afgano. They're totally different fragrances though, so I'm not sure what criteria they'd be competing on. Both win? Neither? Black Afgano is WAY stronger than Kinski—which isn't always going be a good thing.

    If it's the weed component that's urging this comparison (again, I can't see any other way to align them), I'd look to other scents that do similar things such as Matriarch's Blackbird.

    I have had both but definitely prefer Kinski. BA compared to NK might be appropriate because they are both beasts IMO. Kinski is more accessible (albeit-tricky) than BA. Also, it is much more complex in its blending of notes.IMO
    It was a calculated risk. Unfortunately, I'm bad at math.

    I don't like either one, but I voted for Black Afgano because I thought it was more interesting. Sort of overpriced, IMO.

    ...Black Afgano is an overpriced joke...Kinski on the other hand is a well designed clean shirt scent with a nice marihuana opening...

    Of you selected these two for comparison because they they're supposed to smell like marijuana, then you'll want to go for kinski.

    Black Afgano is in a page in a whole different book.

    Kinski should be the beacon of what modern perfumery can be.

    I could not digest the notion that BA being a beast.

    If you put a beast league, BA will not even compare to black oud in my openion.

    I will vote for kinski

    Kinski

    Very well-done. Black Afgano smells of smoke and woods. It is ok, but I find Kinski to be more original.

    I dislike both equally, so Kinski wins on price.

    Thanks all for replies. I weared my sample a few times and found I really like Kinski (more and more on every repeat) and finally ordered a bottle. Hopefully it will arrive for Christmas.
