Oriental rum bomb
Right at the start, rum and tuberose race head to head. A hammersill layer that lasts for about 2-3 hours. Then it gets weaker and closer to the skin, but still better than some or many other fragrances. Oriental, masculine, heavy, spicy and actually not sweet I would describe this fragrance. I would emphasize the rum as the dominant note, but it is never intrusive.

The scent is very noticeable and you should be careful with the dosage. Maybe apply only two or three sprays during the first "external test" to see how the scent develops on your own skin. As I said, it was quite violent for me in the first two to three hours, and I only had one sprayer on my forearm. After that the Sillage collapses a little and you have to get closer with your nose. However, I don't yet have the feeling that I will have to do more - the performance is still sufficient.

It is a really very pleasant, great fragrance, which is perhaps a little loud in the first minutes, but then it swings in nicely and remains for a few hours a quite conspicuous, unusual, oriental companion. You don't smell it very often, at least not here in Vienna, and that's exactly how it should be, something special :-). The ladies like him on the man - I could notice that too. I wouldn't necessarily wear it in the office because it's too unusual, but I'd rather wear it in the evening, on dates or events, etc..

By the way, the bottle is a Schas, as they say here in Vienna. You can lock the spray head by turning it 90°, but that's quite a problem with my specimen at least, and I thought I broke it. After turning back and forth a bit, it worked again, but the hook is still doing it. Well, I'd rather leave the locking mechanism, otherwise it'll be really broken soon. Cheap plastic and not worthy of the quality of the fragrance. This concerns only the upper part of the flacon, the rest is of course glass and ok. What might still bother me is the opacity of the bottle, where you can't see how much is still inside.

A Middle Eastern Italian Man in Black
Before the launching of Man in Black Oriental, Bvlgari had an women Oud perfume (Lazulia), and a unisex one (Eau Parfumée au Thé Noir). The designer missed an offer for men. Boss, Versace, Ralph Lauren, YSL, Gucci and many others already had a successeful offer in that range.
2017 saw the birth of what seems to be another success of Bvlgari with an Oud flanker of Bvlgari Man in Black. The fragrance type is not the typical one of master Alberto Morillas but he pulled out another masterpice. Let's have a look at this Bvlgari oriental gem:
- What a wonderfull looking bottle !
- What an Oriental Oud Leather fragrance!
I love this type of scent. It's a cold weather fragrance. Don't wear it during a summer hot day unless you enjoy to have all the living creatures running to be miles away from you!
- It's smooth, well blended and with a good harmony during the notes evolution !
- Attracts compliments from Oriental fragrances lovers! The Rum / Cardamom opening is quite great and the DNA of Man in Black is detectable. The introduction of Taif Rose along with Tuberose does team up quite well with the Oud and Leather base notes. This perfume does have a loud projection ,so one must be calm with the sprayer. Its sillage peaks at 6+ feet till the end of the 3d hour. The dry down has a generous sillage still, and do expect to have a practical skin scent till the 12th hour. It does have an above average performance on skin and performs even better on clothes!
- Does not smell cheap or syntethic. It really smells classy and the fragrance ingredients are of top quality for sure.
- Bvlgary marketeers did a good image job and took advantage of the Man in Black hype to promote this fragrance!
- It's somewhat different from Man in Black. It does have a vibe from the original perfume but the Taif Rose and the strong Oud / Leather notes do make it somewhat different.
- I consider this fragrance and Man in Black to be in my top 10!
- Price is still 20~25% more expensive than Bvlgary Man in Black. It will go down for sure in the future.

My rates for Bvlgary Man Black Orient:
Scent opening:..............9.5 (great Taif - Tuberose opening)
Scent drydown:...........10.0 (fantastic Leather-Oud long pleasant 8 hours)
Longevity:......................9.0 (2 good sprays on skin are good enough for 12 hours)
Sillage:...........................8.5 (6 feet or more on skin; 8 feet or more on clothes; good projection for 3 hours)
Versatility:.....................7.0 (this is a formal fragrance not suitable for casual happenings)
Wearability:..................7.0 (this is a night fragrance that can be used during cold days as well)
Compliments..........,.....7.5 (as in any oud fragrance, compliments are moderate)
Uniqueness:.................9.0 (Very good but not unique Oud fragrance)
Quality:........................10.0 (imaculate)
Presentation:..............10.0 (work of art)
Price:.............................7.0 (€54,00 for 100 ml non tester plus shipping; price is currently similar to the Oud Fragrances produced by Bvlgari competitors)

Average:....................8.59/10.00
I do recomend this fragrance. I really do.

Rum, leather, oud and a bit of rose. What seamed to be a great perfume by its specs, is a great scent. Congrats to Bvlgari and Morillas.+3
