A kinder, gentler--albeit rubbery--musky-magnolia mélange
Confession: I bought Kenneth Cole's BLACK scent unsniffed in a gift set solely because of the packaging. The slick black cylinder may have reminded me of the FRACAS parallelopiped... "Could this be a cousin?" I perhaps wistfully wondered. Alas, it was not to be. I wore BLACK once and then proceeded to banish it to the back of my armoire. But why?

BLACK opens with a somewhat off-putting synthetic, rubbery scent which reminds me very much of the smell of tires, evoking in my mind images of Alligator Alley in the Florida everglades, where in the deepest heat of the summer tires routinely explode. Their stringy carapaces are left behind and serve as explicit warnings to other drivers similarly inclined to put the pedal to the metal...

Fortunately, the rubbery, not very pleasant opening is relatively fleeting, and what follows and abides is a musky magnolia layer very similar to the drydown of RUMEUR. This is good news for those who prefer not to suffer through the chemical industry factory fumes that are the opening of RUMEUR. You can safely skip it altogether and use BLACK instead, if you're after that musky-magnolia mélange.

Although, I won't wear BLACK often, I do like the drydown--which is longlasting with good sillage in the edp--and will perhaps be more tolerant of its opening now, having experienced RUMEUR, which makes tire aura seem like the breath of the gods...
