    Default Nasomatto Black Afgano and Polo Supreme Oud smell the same.... did polo jack nasomatto?

    After spraying both Black Afgano (2012) version and Polo Supreme Oud .. waiting 10 min, they both smell the same.... about 95%....

    Can someone who owns both please confirm..... at 65 bucks on fragrance net.... PSO would be a good BA alternative

    I don't own them, but have extensively sampled both (Supreme Oud quite recently)... While everyone has their own point of reference I personally don't get the comparison at all, I'm afraid. For reference, I enjoyed Supreme Oud but was repulsed by the horrific smelling Black Afgano. If I detected even a smidgen of it in Supreme Oud I would have steered well-clear.

    Am an owner of neither, but have smelled both of them and they don't smell similar to me personally.

    Well if to your nose they smell alike , then congrats As you can get a cheaper alternative that does it for you personally!

    Not even on remotely similar, but if you think so, buy the one you like best.

    Thanks for the responses.... hopefully someone can confirm with a current side by side for the group...

    they are very close after 10-15 min and keep in mind it is the 2012 version of black afgano.... not the beast it launched with.... only downfall OS has is a skin scent....

    I have Black Afgano and recently sampled Polo Supreme Oud and I never made the connection between the two. Maybe its the oud in both that may have a similar vibe to your nose. I can see that. However, Supreme Oud has a dry woody vibe, where Black Afgano goes into a smokey dry sweet vibe. The oud in both of these fragrances isn't in your face like some others IMHO.

    Can't say that I see the similarity between the two. There's perhaps a note or two similar in the reformulated Black Afghano, but it's not exactly the same to my nose. Both have a damp woods accord, the oud basically, that has somewhat of a similar smell. But I get incense and some pipe tobacco from BA, whereas with Supreme Oud I get a touch of oud, some powder and good amount of cinnamon.

    Supreme Oud and Supreme Leather share more to my nose than your comparison. But isn't it pretty darn cool how we all sense things/smells differently?
