Alessandro Gualtieri aka The Nose about Black Afgano: "This bottle of perfume is part of the Nasomatto project. The fragrance aims to evoke the best quality of Hashish. The result of a quest to arouse the effects of temporary bliss."
Quote from review on Black Afgano from Now Smell This:
"I became excited about Nasomatto Black Afgano as I read news releases about its formulation: judging from the fragrance's description ("smuggled" ingredients, harsh herbs, marijuana-as-incense) I was expecting something strange and "illicit." Black Afgano's dark brown juice is syrupy and the fragrance opens with strong aromas of "dirty" cedar (added cumin) and musk. There is also a hint of wood-scented cigarette smoke in the opening minutes of the fragrance. Black Afgano's mid-phase of development comes closest to smelling like marijuana with a dry, herbal-leafy accord (think cured tobacco) tinged with a sweet 'sweaty' note. As the scent dries down, there’s a brief moment of funky-furry musk, then Black Afgano becomes vanillic-amber-y with a touch of patchouli.
The lasting power of Black Afgano is sensational - I could smell it on my skin 24 hours after application - but it has minimal sillage; its stages of development are best observed at close range (nose near skin)."
“I like the feeling that I’m losing control and I’m not the one making the choices. My involvement is to create something that is alive that will be able to say new things.” - Alessandro Gualtieri, aka The Nose
In Italian, Nasomatto means 'crazy nose'. The collection of extraits de parfum was inspired by the desire to be free from the rules and constraints imposed by the market.
The highly concentrated extraits de parfum are original, rebellious, intense and (very) long-lasting on the skin. The Italian perfumer Alessandro Gualtieri lives and works in Amsterdam, where he keeps on inventing and creating unique and intriguing creations.

It's over the top. I have never smelt anything like this
Intriguing, explosive, full of depth, keeps me and my environment wondering (and coming closer..)
Delicious, yet heavy perfume that lingers for a long time with different layers to it. My experience with it: a woody scent that is also suitable for men. A drop is enough.
Very good scent! A must have from the Nasomatto line
