Nasomatto Black Afgano Perfume Review
Nasomatto Black Afgano Fragrance Review

Nasomatto Black Afgano Extrait de Parfum experienced glimpses into a lot of its notes in the early 15 minutes of don, but it was typically dark, earthy, animalic oud with resinous, overripe fruits and little else on my pores and skin. It was additional spiced, nutty, and toffee-like early on, alongside with a much more definable raspberry sweetness, but it morphed into one thing fruity but very little distinctive to my nose. The notes are shown as:

  • major notes: cannabis, eco-friendly notes
  • heart notes: resins, woodsy notes, tobacco, espresso
  • base notes: oud, incense

It opened with abundant, roasted espresso and dim oud, quickly adopted by nutty labdanum and chewy, toffee-like resins that were thick, heady, and woody. It felt like an exceptionally dim, wealthy amber with whispers of oud, earthy, evenly animalic. There were being refined, leathery undertones that spilled by the amber. Within five minutes, a kiss of raspberry sweetness atop a mountain of spiced, resinous amber and oud.

Black Afgano remained largely an amber and oud combine, wherever the oud was never at its full, most challenging depth as a substitute, it added an earthiness and rounded out the amber and held it from becoming as closely spiced as it was to begin with. The oud recommended some thing animalic but nowhere around the barnyard. There was a fleeting whisper of cannabis following 20 minutes that was deep in the qualifications.

I uncovered the oud turned louder about the up coming two hrs with a sweet, fruity element around smoke and spiced amber. The oud continued to be the strongest element in the composition by way of the drydown–it was rich, resinous, and considerably animalic and musky. Five hrs in, the drydown has a little bit more of a smoky quality paired with the fruity sweetness and oud, which was even now reasonably intensive in scent.


For tests, I made use of 1/2 of a .7ml sample vial dabbed to the underside and topside of my wrist spot on my remaining arm. I made use of an unscented moisturizer prior to implementing the scent as this is also my swatching arm (aka, exceptionally parched at any offered second) as I identified scent did not maintain perfectly here normally. 

I acquired my sample in January 2022 fragrances are acknowledged to be reformulated above their lifetime , so be aware of when a assessment was produced, e.g. a review from 2010 may well not mirror what the identical-named fragrance smells like in 2022.


It lasted for a few hours right up until it was a skin-scent and about 10 several hours in advance of it was pretty challenging to detect on my skin. The sillage and projection have been moderate but dropped inside of two hrs.

Own Views

Oud with these types of an intensive, sweet and fruity part didn’t very do it for me I felt like it was much too a lot of the exact same detail for also prolonged! I was stunned that the oud did not change additional during the progress of the scent.
