Favorite winter scent
After Dior Sauvage, this was the first fragrance I bought in winter 2019. For me, everything smelled the same at Douglas at the time, but this fragrance has remained in my head. I had never smelled such an aromatically intense fragrance before and that's why I bought it.

The fragrance is really extremely sweet, which is why I would recommend it for winter.

The sillage is one of the best out of my collection. The durability is also incredible. I have received by far the most compliments for this fragrance so far, without aiming for it. I can definitely recommend this fragrance if you are looking for a perfume that doesn't smell 0815 and has a super performance. Since this fragrance is very special and also has many opponents, you should try it before. Who stands on sweet fragrances will be satisfied with it.

The indecisive one who leaves again after having just appeared
A cloud of tobacco aroma in the morning sun envelops a wooden vessel with rum, which has almost completely evaporated after long exposure to the heat of the Oriental sun. But a whirlwind of spices is raging, which makes the cloud of tobacco aroma rise and allows the remaining evaporating drop of alcohol a small farewell presence before it is completely blown away. What is a storm for some seems to be just a breeze for most of the area. After a few minutes of a very mixed experience, the desert becomes quiet again. What remains after this unusual event is a hunch when taking a closer look at the situation. Some report that they can still smell the residue of the spices. Incomers are adding leather to the mix. But in the end only someone who has been there in the narrow window of a short break can know for sure

Man in black
The last comment this year I write about Bvlgari Man in Black Yes the color black what does it actually mean.

It is probably associated with mystical, fear , sadness, death.
But you can also say the color radiates power, strength, self-confidence.

Let's think of black leather jackets or a stylish noble black evening dress.

Bvlgari Men in Black is a good masculine fragrance.
He is not quite so black.

The tobacco and rum one smells out in a well-dosed manner. Also the Holzigen notes carry the fragrance all the time in the fragrance gently through the entire performance.
Leather I smell out only very restrained.
As a whole, the fragrance is very harmonious and very nicely matched.
Praise to Alberto.
Who expects a violently heavy fragrance here will probably be disappointed.

But he fits perfectly with a leather jacket.
The price-performance ratio is for me in a fair range. The shelf life could be a little longer. The sillage is fine.
I personally like fragrances with which I slay my fellow man anyway not.

Last but not least.....
On 06.01 I am one year on Parfumo active.
I have read a lot about fragrances as well as learned.
The most important was or has been for me but that I could narrow down my fragrance preferences.
The most beautiful side effect was in this not quite simple year, I have met many nice people. To a few I have now built a very good friendship.
And yes there are also which are grown to me meanwhile also very to the heart.
For this I would like to thank you.

Now I wish everyone a happy new year. Stay healthy and keep you brave.

We'll be hearing from each other.
And one or the other I will also see.
Until then

Well...so
I was able to get a sample of that scent the other day. I put it on yesterday. Well what can I say.... the smell in my eyes...well...

I perceive it as somewhat sour. He doesn't stand out from the crowd now. It's a pretty nice office and everyday scent. I wouldn't expect many compliments. What I am surprised about, though, is the durability. I applied it around 08:00 o'clock and in the evening around 19:00 o'clock I still noticed it a little bit. After I moved my head sideways back and forth.

What it loses in performance, it brings back with the durability.

unobtrusive
Most things in life are a matter of taste. Beyond physics, anyway I had great expectations of Bulgarian "Man in Black". Whoever writes "black" in the name evokes associations such as "conspicuous", "harsh", "oily", "smoky".
But - I don't notice any of that here. It's all unobtrusive, hesitant. It's spicy, but if you wait for the black hammer, you get old The sillage is weak. If the nose needs to get close to the perfume, something's going wrong. At least in the wallet, because here you have to spray three times and not once as with products in the same price range. That's expensive.
Certainly not a bad perfume. Only for me it's too subtle and "vague". It's a one-time purchase. Then there is space under the bathroom mirror again, or as EOC once sang: "The old junk has to go out and new junk has to go in."

The man in black radiates maturity - and is into pipe tobacco.
Man in Black ended up on my autumn/winter watch list after one of my numerous forays into this wonderful community. On the same day, I dug out a handful of specimens at home that I had not yet decided on - et voilá: the gentleman in black from Bulgari was there with me!
Pffft - I am thrilled! The first impression reminds me strongly of Herod! Wow! Clearly the tobacco in the top note is responsible for this. One in Black's tobacco is dry sweetish. Caressed by a warm coat of powder. The powdery note is by no means too present. Like a thin cashmere cardigan. In this cardigan I sit on a veranda of wooden panels and sip a liqueur. Something soft, not 40% rum, you can hardly taste the alcohol. My father sits next to me and smokes a pipe, the smell of tobacco wafts over to me from time to time - I sniff it out.

Man in Black is an incredibly pleasant fragrance that creates a warm atmosphere. It can be worn on an evening with friends as well as in the office, if you want to be a pleasant contact person. An innovative marketing genius in his early 20s may want to look for a more bubbly scent. One in Black suits the sedate man who radiates prudence and maturity - this can also be the case at 30. A fragrance I will always be happy to return to!

The smell is often associated with Spicebomb, which is basically understandable.
However, since I own both Spicebomb and MiB, I can confidently assure you that although both go in a very spicy direction, they are very different.

While Spicebomb is quite - in a positive sense - aggressive, I would call MiB very warm. Spicebomb can also be recommended to a younger audience, while MiB is more for the gentlemen with slightly grey hair because of its boozie note.

The best of BVLGARI
Bvlgari Man in Black is definitely the best Bvlgari has to offer. Since one year I wear it now regularly 1-2 times a week, to actually each cause or season (not with 30°). The scent itself is really nice and spicy-masculine but not too exaggerated.
After I quickly emptied the 30ml bottle, I had to buy the 100ml bottle, which is really great in the collection. Unfortunately the sprayer of the 30ml bottle was not so great after a while, even the tester at Douglas had problems with the spray head. But with the 100ml bottle this is no problem anymore. What I find negative is that I can't see the fill level of the bottle
I find the durability and silage really outstanding for a quite "cheap" fragrance. As long as Bvlgari doesn't discontinue the fragrance, I will buy it again and again

Boozie Tonka.
At the airport of Turin I snooped through the duty free shop again and discovered two new fragrances. Dior Homme Intense and this treasure, Bulgari Man in Black.

With this fragrance you get a warm, sweet but still definitely masculine scent that is truly unique. This scent is practically the slightly playful turtleneck sweater under a suit. I also see it more with 20-40 year olds than with really young or sedate people.

The tonka bean, paired with the iris, is the first thing you notice besides the slightly alcoholic note of rum. I'm not a big fan of alcoholic smelling scents, but as this one has that certain sweetness, exactly that is defused and brought to a really pleasant level.

The bottle is made of 60% matte black-coated glass and 40% black plastic, so you can't tell how much is left in the bottle. In itself it looks good and doesn't attract scratches, although I like to take it to work unprotected in my pocket. Even though the upper part is made of plastic, the spray head works really well and even the turning mechanism hasn't given up the ghost after turning it up and down several times
Beautiful perfume for the evening hours in the transition months or a cold summer night

Just a lovely drydown....
I'm not a fan of very peppery scents and I really dislike iris, so this meeting was somehow already predestined to go wrong. What I get is sweet tea, spices, tonka and - the dreaded iris combined with tuberose.Fortunately the iris is not as powdery as in say, Dior Homme. I even get some similarities to Prada Luna Rossa Extreme or Midnight In Paris but with the iris cranked up quite a bit. I don't get any rum or cinnamon and hardly much leather though.

The drydown after the iris and tuberose is gone is just lovely and smooth, but unfortunately just a skin scent - this is where the benzoin and tonka beans shine.

Longevity was also rather disappointing, approximately 3 hours, very weak for a EdP.

The spicy rum opening is wonderful.
Then it evolves in the only leathery fragrance i can stand so far. Very persistent on the skin.

It's very intense, manly, quite aromatic and crafted with very good quality essences. It smells expensive and classy. It's a Bvlgari bomb.
