Whiskey vs. coffee
That's how fast it goes...

At the latest when I ordered a bunker bottle of Baraonda (my current still has about 20ml content) at a great offer, I knew that Golden Dallah by Xerjoff will no longer long adorn my profile as a signature fragrance.

As always, I would like to say something about the bottle and packaging first.
Of all the Nasomattos, I like the bottle design the best with Baraonda, as the theme was extremely well hit here.
It is, as already said, a wooden-boozy fragrance and what fits better than a lid made of cork?
About the outer packaging can be argued, because it does not really look high quality to me. The idea with the travel lid, however, has been implemented great, which ensures that you can always enjoy his Nasomattos even when traveling, without the risk of damaging / losing the fantastic lid.

Also worth mentioning and praising is the spray head. I own 5 Zoologist bottles and there the spray head is already the hammer. Nasomatto tops that, however, again around the double. A long, sustained spray that releases a very fine fragrance mist.
The madness!

To the fragrance:

I'm a big fan of alcohol in perfumes and so I get my money's worth with the whiskey & rum notes here.

Baraonda starts with an extremely authentic whiskey note, which I have yet to enjoy in any fragrance as I have in Alessandro Gualtieri's masterpiece. Of course, there are many fragrance houses that work with rum, brandy & whiskey, however, I have not been able to find a fragrance that conveys this note as authentically as Baraonda. Many other fragrances simply become too sweet or the synthetics come out too strongly.
Nasomatto puts the wearer and bystanders in the middle of the production of the finest whiskey the world has ever seen / tasted / smelled.
Woody tones, a certain sweetness (probably coming from amber) and light spice (probably coming from ambrette) in combination with the whiskey result for me the absolute best fragrance I have smelled so far. Many may perceive this combination as exhausting, annoying or strongly intrusive, but I had already fallen head over heels in love after the first spray of my bottling.

As for the durability & sillage, all that can be said is that the scent is very persistent.
I sprayed the fragrance on at 07:00 this morning (4 sprays, 1 of which was on the sweater) and at 15:45 I still notice it all the time.
I have heard from many that as soon as I enter a smaller room, Baraonda "stands" in that room. I got that comment 13 hours after spraying it on.
So you get what for your money, which is why I rated the price-performance ratio accordingly.

The fragrance can be summarized as follows:

B oozy
A mber
R aum-filling
A mbret
O lfactory experience
N asomatto's masterpiece
D uring
A tembering

I for one love this fragrance and really enjoy wearing it. Whether in the office, for me alone at home or at parties (should be sometime again which ;) )

Thank you for reading!

If the bottle justifies the purchase...
...then in my opinion, it can only be about a Nasomatto
But one thing at a time. I am a great friend of alcoholic scents. Be it Dark Rebel, various Kilian fragrances or Pure Malt from Mugler, all of them have an interesting and somehow unique character for me. If you smell them, you immediately get the desire to lean into the turmoil and fight the nights around your ears. At least that's how I feel. Especially Pure Malt is something I don't want to miss in my collection, because I like the affected whisky note very much (I would like to refer to my comment of Pure Malt).
However, it should go even better!
Nasomatto has been a brand for which I was only aware of the best known representative. However, I am still reluctant to test Black Afghano because of its alleged similarity to Gucci Intense Oud (my personal hate scent). More by chance I stumbled upon an offer for Baraonda.
Briefly checked the data. Sounds promising. Sample is bought!

So about the scent:
Baraonda starts as expected with whisky! And not too little of it. Seldom have I perceived such an authentic note in a perfume. One really has the feeling of sniffing an Irish whisky that has been matured for years in oak barrels, so intense that the nose hairs start to slurp.
Unfortunately the alcoholic note disappears quite quickly and makes room for a strong, caramel-like sweetness. This is accompanied by a deep woodiness. In the end, it is this wood note that remains on the skin.

The sillage of Baraonda is enormous. Especially directly after spraying the scent radiates like no other. Although it is an Extrait de Parfum, which should be rather close to the skin due to the low alcohol content. One splash is enough to take over the whole apartment within minutes (I do not live in a caravan). The scent also sticks to my clothes forever, fills the interior of my cupboards with tipsy cheerfulness and greets me even after the washing is done. I'm talking about the little bit that accidentally gets on my collar when I apply it.
The shelf life on the skin is ten hours. Under the right circumstances, even longer.

Baraonda is wearable for everyone, although I would classify it more masculine.
It will definitely be at its best during the cold months, due to its deep sweetness.
Due to its strong performance, you should definitely pay attention to the dosage, especially when you are indoors. One to a maximum of two sprays are enough to be clearly noticed.

The bottle fits Baraonda like the proverbial fist in the eye.
Minimalist like all Nasomatto flacons, with huge cork lid. Inside is a viscous yellowish liquid, very similar to whiskey.
The handy format makes it look very potent, which is undoubtedly the fragrance. An eye-catcher even in the niche segment
Conclusion: Baraonda was a fragrance for a long time again, which could really inspire me. I love its character. He is like a good, drunken friend: affectionate, extroverted and adventurous.
I actually liked it so much that I didn't even use up the sample, but ordered a bottle directly. Normally not my style Unfortunately it is impossible to wear it at the moment because of the heat. But one more reason to look forward to autumn, it definitely is.

Play it Sam. Play "as time goes by".
Baraonda is my "as time goes by". The scent brings back memories. To Scotland, to my youth, to Edinburgh, to my friends who were travelling with their backpacks at that time, to the whisky distilleries... Baraonda works like a good old whisky.

But that's not where it stops. Baraonda brings me along from the memories into something new, pleasant, warm-well. Baraonda is a golden, soft, velvety scented coat that nestles around my shoulders. Baraonda has come home and put on slippers.

A completely successful late autumn and winter perfume for me, which should have been tested. With gourmand notes, malt notes, possibly a little vanilla... and still not sweet.

Thanks for reading, which always smells good,
Lars

...Whisky/ey, Blended or Single Malt...
Now Alessandro Gualtieri is known for creating extravagant scents or is it better to split the scene or to revive it or even to animate people to go new ways? I guess you could say that. Also in charge of another fragrance house: Orto Parisi, for which he also creates.

For a long time a fragrance didn't bother me as much as this candidate.

Why?

It's something completely new that hasn't been seen before. At least I didn't get anything like that in the nose from perfumes. But I already know the scents, from the gastronomy. Waas?, some will say now, but.

Now our whole lives are marked by associations. Our brain constantly suggests or compares things to us. In cloud formations we take faces war or other objects. Only we really see it? Yes it can be, but it is rather our brain that tries to recognize something known in something unknown.? This is similar to the sightings of the legendary Bigfoot in North America or the Yeti in the Himalayas. Some swear to have seen him, others think he is a bear who, when they stand up, suggests to us exactly what we think they see or what seems similar, namely a monkey-like creature.

So what are we being pretended to be here?
I associate this fragrance with spirits to become more concrete: With whiskey/y but also with port wine or sherry.

In whiskey/y production there are now two processes. The pot-still and the patent-still method, whereby the first one has prevailed more - with the Irish (whiskey) even exclusively.

In the pot-still process, the distillations are carried out in two independent firing processes in two copper boilers (pot-still). The mash is placed in the wort bubble, where it is distilled for the first time. The alcoholic vapours are liquefied via the condenser. The resulting product, the predatory spirit, is collected in a container and has an alcohol content of approx. 30 % by volume. The predatory rim is added to the alcohol bubble and distilled there a second time. Subsequently condensed again, whereby the pre- and post-run are separated out. Only the middle course, the core, gets into the collection container. The Pot-still process provides alcohol of better quality than the Patent-still process. However, the alcohol content is lower. One thing, however, the Irish hardly use at all, namely peat for firing. Occasionally possibly, but the norm does not predefine it. Whereby we have to spill over to Scotland with this masterpiece after allJ?

Now we can only argue about what is really better. A classic single malt or a blended? Many say: "Of course a single malt!" I'd rather say a high-quality blended!

What's the matter with you? Getting a perfect, harmonious blended scotch is probably the real art, but everyone likes it. A blended can contain between 15-50 different malts. I would therefore say that this is a huge challenge.
But back to the scent:

So what do we have in common so far?

At Seniore Gualtieri, we are certain that we offer the best quality in ingredients, we have an excellent perfumer, who we would/will include in the master distillery of blended distillers in any case, because he has combined all the wonderful ingredients into a breathtaking fragrance. And that only from the said core.

Imagine the stark landscape in the Highlands. A harsh climate, but beautiful.

The fragrance begins with a breathtaking richness of facets: immediately one has fruity port notes paired with wood notes in the nose. But who thinks now comes Oud, Sandalwood and Co. was wrong. We're talking here about the said wooden barrel notes (Single Malt at the moment prefers to be stored in port wine barrels and old sherry barrels). A permanent cork note is added. Not in a negative sense, of course, like a corked wine. This consists of the bark of the so-called cork oak, which becomes quite scarce when added. The fragrance gains a wonderful peat note over time, as many single malts do at the moment.

It is not really the classic scent in the form of a pyramid of scents to be recognized, rather some friends join from time to time, leave the group again or develop further. It is a perfect interplay of cork, wood barrel notes, possibly some cardamom and cloves but not over the complete distance. After approx. one hour I notice a light caramel note. A slightly leathery undertone is also visible. A short part of the way I perceive vanilla, which is then replaced by a nice honey note. Here it smells like the beautiful honey candles you made yourself as children. At the end there are still some chocolaty nuances, all wonderfully embedded in the three groundbreaking components (peat, fruity wood notes and cork).

Truly a masterpiece...

Scotland holiday in a bottle
When I sprayed this fragrance on this morning, I was completely upset. Suddenly I stood again in the warehouse of the distillery Edradour in Pitlochry, countless oak barrels in front of us and this breathtaking scent... it is often said that people associate the scent of a whisky warehouse with that of an apple orchard, which is probably why many people smell apples directly when they test Baraonda. This scent is 100% authentic whisky and I can't believe that now after 8 hours it still radiates exactly the same from my forearm.
So far I've been smelling scents that smell like brandies very accurately to get the association of schnapps at all, but Baraonda screams "Scotch Single Malt" in the face, which I personally find wonderful.
I'm definitely gonna buy this scent.
