So, is it black?
Nope! Oh, maybe it's a nighttime fragrance ? Nope! Whatever the meaning behind the name and design, this is a great fresh sweet minty flowery (must be the lotus blossom) smell. At first it reminded me of Kenzo's Homme Boisee/Woody (must be the basil/mint mix), but Cole's version is sweeter, more powerful and amazingly still keeping it fresh. A very fine spring or even summer fragrance with decent sillage and good longevity - give it a whirl!
Oh, and don't be surprised by the 30 ml/1oz bottle. When you first unbox it, it looks like an owergrown travel spray. Fortunately it comes in a heavy quality glass bottle with a design that you won't have to be ashamed of.

Certainly unisex
I was a little confused when I tried Black for the first time. I didn't know that there was both a female and male version of the scent, I thought there was just one, and that Kenneth Cole Black was unisex.

Obviously now I understand, however I won't retract my original observation that this could be worn by both men and women.

There is something very unique and likable about this fragrance. It tends to be rather spicy and sweet, exotic in a sense.

The opening of ginger, mandarin orange, basil and mint is both refreshing yet delicate on the skin. Sensuality is projected through this fragrance quite strongly.

I find that the incense, nutmeg, ginger and cedar seem to be the driving force behind this fragrance. The combination of those notes create an intense and sexy aura. Incense in any fragrance usually turns out to be a hit with me because of its beautiful smokiness and mystery.

Unfortunately Kenneth Cole Black doesn't last for as long as I would have liked. I think it's very important to be able to enjoy this fragrance on the skin for as long as possible. However despite the poor lasting power, I do still recommend this fragrance to men and women alike.

I'm surprised by how freshness and brightness the smell is for it having the dark bottle. In a few words Sophisticated, Virile, Elegant.

An attractive, albeit slightly generic scent that hardly lasts half the day. Super safe for the office.
