Not a black phantom with a black soul trying to drag you into the depths of scent hell. No troublesome companion who leaves you alone in the important moments, NO, a friend who invites you to a cup of caramel coffee at the barista's and gives you the feeling of having a particularly good taste. A gourmand palate that takes you on a journey and caresses you for hours. A journey that takes you around the world, feels like it, and from the best countries, pouches a gift and surprises you in the end. Caribbean rum, Brazilian or Ethiopian coffee, Cuban sugar cane, caramel from the best patisseries and freshly brewed milk from the barista machine. It could look something like that. Have fun on this trip !
Now to the hard, or in this case soft, facts. Black Phantom is horny - not to say super horny. Something that you don't get under your nose every day and that you also have to deal with. First of all, I ordered the fragrance directly after the test with a bottling. But why spend 260 Euro for the box with a nice skull box or 130 Euro for the Travelpack ! Well, that's partly due to his great development. My start started with a rum note, sugar and a hint of coffee. After a few minutes the coffee gets stronger and stronger and combines with a kind of milk note. So we have already put something together in the direction of Irish Coffee. This smell then lasts for some time until the whole thing turns into a viscous caramel mass. I've read some people say the drydown looks a little rubbery. I couldn't find that out, because the last notes in my music are the mentioned caramel streams.
Anyone travelling towards Gourmand should test this fragrance despite its price. Simply testing is enough, because a soft and sweet composition with a coffee-rum note does not occur too often. A pleasure before the black Phantom gentleman
