    Default Is nasomatto baraonda blind buy worthy?

    I keep seeing this pop up on IG but I have never tried it. Alotta raves on this. I have tried Black Afgano and thought it was atrocious, one spray can clear our a small room.

    One of my favorite boozy fragrances, but I think it should be sampled prior to purchase. I'm not sure there is a safe blind buy from this house.

    Very boozy, quite strong. I'd say sample first.

    Well, I did but I don't wear it that often because I like Pardon better.

    It’s one of my favorite fragrances and I would blind buy a boozy fragrance personally. But I wouldn’t recommend it unless you love boozy notes a lot.
    Favorite Houses:
    Hermès
    Rogue Perfumery
    Zoologist
    Amouage
    Frederic Malle
    Serge Lutens

    Loves:
    Florals (especially rose, tuberose, cherry blossom, orange blossom, osmanthus, ylang ylang, immortelle, violet, jasmine, plum blossom, heliotrope, and iris)
    Orientals (especially spicy, woody, and floral orientals)
    Boozy notes
    Chypres (especially with real oakmoss)
    Rich gourmands
    Animalic fragrances
    Great longevity and sillage

    The only one from this house I've tried..
    I was at a friend and he's like I bought a fragrance called baraonda ever heard of it????
    I was like bring it here NOW.
    Imagine m7 with a heavy liquer ...it's a heavy hypnotic oud type sweet scent that doesn't smell synthetic.
    Really good quality but it's definitely not casual. Winter night time fragrance for sure.

    Safe to buy blind, but not worthy purchase overall. All ingredients despite smooth, are very synthetic in texture and feel. Composition is flat without any interesting twists. If you love the house, duro and pardon are better purchases.

    I LOVE The stuff!!! I did buy a sample first but just knew I was going to love it before it even arrived. Quite potent. You need to enjoy booze. It has one of the booziest openings I've ever encountered. There is a slight rose note and also some sort of coconut vibe which I really enjoy. Very distinct fragrance.

    Absolutely.

    Solid fragrance but polarizing.

    Personally, don’t own it because I’d struggle to find an opportunity to comfortably wear it.

    I enjoy it a lot and I blind bought it. But many won’t like it.
    FYI: I spray all fragrances on clothing, never on skin.

    Coming from someone who likes Nasomatto but blind-bought Baraonda and hated it, I say no

    I'm very surprised to see that this is such a divisive scent. I personally the think it's rather easy to like, and would make a relatively safe blind buy.

    No. I recommend trying it before making a decision to purchase a bottle.

    Really like Baraonda, but I think it's best to sample first, unless you can get it for a great price. That way if you don't enjoy it, you shouldn't have a problem selling it.

    If you love whiskey, this is definitely blind buy worthy.. not many people dislike it, but it may be hard to find the right occasion to wear it. I've had my bottle at least 18 months, and worn it twice.. but I also have a lot of other stuff I reach for first. Not that it's a bad frag, just not a first choice. Imo, great for big collections, and a bottle should last you a life time if you have a large collection.

    Not safe blind buy, one of the better ones in the boozy/whiskey segment, leans dry, good for someone who doesn't care for safe, unisex fragrances.

    I love it, but man, why blind buy? Buy something you know and like first.
