Extreme black is the new black
Jo, this is it, the Eau-de-Parfum version of the fragrance "Pure Black" from the Italian designer house "Mandarina Duck"!

This is the black bottle with the golden writing, the gold-colored plastic cap, which actually reminds a little of a duck's bill in the approach and - very important - the typical for Mandarina Duck round dent on the back. The bottle as a whole - let's be honest - doesn't look particularly high quality. The same goes for the spray head, which always accompanies its service with a slight squeaking noise for me. Not cool, but within my tolerance range. The sound of the very striking name immediately brings up associations with other "black" fragrances: Trussardi's "Black Extreme", "Lapidus pour Homme Black Extreme", or even reversed "Extreme Black" by Red Logo, just to name a few.

What could have caused the editors of the listed namesakes to their lurid designations, I can not understand. In this fragrance here, I think it is clear: At the center are the dried, mostly black seeds, which are found in the fruit of the tonka bean tree and emit a sweetish-vanilla fragrance.

"Black Extreme" opens (squeak!) with a very present tonka bean, which, however, is kept in check by the clearly perceptible, synthetic bergamot. Rounding out this very pleasant first impression is both an orange and spice note. Already in the first seconds it becomes clear that the fragrance is basically generic with regard to the broad tonka bean competition, but nevertheless also retains a bit of individuality through the contributing tropical fruits.

In any case, the basic character of the opening continues in the drydown phase. The transition is largely linear, except for the more emerging creaminess and the space gaining, delicate cedar note. In addition, my impression is strengthened that - although not listed here - leather is also mixed in at the edge.

Overall, "Black Extreme" remains a recognizably sweet, but in my view not too sweet fragrance, which can be worn all day and regardless of the occasion, mainly because of its subtle fruitiness. Although certainly designed with a focus on being a fall and winter scent, I think it can be worn year-round except for the very hot summer days. He radiates well in the first three hours, but then goes off the gas, until he ultimately after seven to eight hours skin.

Rumors, he would have a great resemblance to "Uden" in the base, I can neither confirm nor reject in the absence of comparative material. Assured findings on this, however, are welcome in the answer section!

I quite personally like the fragrance very much. In addition, he is at the current prices of 20 - 25 euros for 100 ml (although discontinued) for lovers of tonka-based fragrances an absolute no-brainer. And - yesoll, the fragrance is suitable for everyone!

I hope very much, I could be helpful with this comparatively short comment or the one or the other undecided in the decision and thank you as always for reading!

You can smell the bergamot and pepper in the top notes. It quickly becomes quite fruity and almost smells like Xeryus Rouge but a bit more dark. Nice stuff :)

It's what you get if you take CAHSEE and make it slightly sweeter, warmer and add vanilla in the base. Peppery and sweet orange with tonka.
