Bvlgari Man in Black description

Is there any scent higher in the pantheon of All-Time Greatest masculine smells than rum and leather? It?s a big question for another time, perhaps, but in fragrance nothing is more compelling, bolder, or more attractive than these two notes. Rum and leather are demanding and intoxicating aromas that instantly connect us to our animalic, wild side that?s buried deep under civility.. Read more >

First pick
Great pick. Absolutely enjoy this. Think it's a perfect match for me. Not over powering and 2 sprays lasts all day. Don't get the headache effect. Hard for me to find a cologne that I can stand wearing for long periods of time. Turned many heads with this one. Definitely going to be adding this one to my collection in the future.

I was not disappointed...
I decided to try Bvkgari Man in Black because of this Scentbird claim... "A barrel full of cinnamon, cardamom, and dark rum spill over the top into a gallant bouquet of tuberose and iris held aloft in an aristocrat?s glove of regal black leather..." I was not disappointed. I lack expertise and my scent range is not sophisticated, but I know what I like in a cologne and I AM an expert on my opinion.

Shocked
All of the scents that I have gotten so far (4) have smelled very good, however, this one takes the cake. The smell, I cant describe is great. It lasts long as well. Try this one asap.

This has a very strong woodsy scent with a hint of cinnamon mostly, it's not that great to me but I like it. It smells good on my skin even after a while. My female friend told me I smelt like Epsom salt, lol. She must be referring to bath salts or something, but I asked other female friends and they enjoy the scent. It can definitely set an occasion. Would definitely get a bottle for sure.

Great smelling scent. It gives off the idea of fitting the sophisticated or mysterious individual. Overall I enjoy the slightly spicy and inviting aroma and would love to give it 5 stars. The only thing keeping me from doing so is the short amount of time the scent lasts. It?s powerful so much does not have to be used but will have to be reapplied a couple times a day.

Now, I'm not a fan, smells close to stetson to me, just the older man smell like my grandfather would wear. Im 31 so little too outdated for my taste, but you may like it!

Loved it! This is the one fragrance that I actually bought a full bottle of from trying it on this site. Great Smell, smells more richer and darker than Spicebomb, a little more sexier too. Longevity is not so great, but it definitely is a scent you want to wear on those "special nights" if you know what I mean!

Pleasant scent but too spicy for my taste as I prefer much more of a citrus smell.

I received this as my first scent back in October. I have received many complements on it and it has a very nice sillage and lasts all day from when I leave for college at 9 Am to when i get home from work at around 10 PM. I noticed recently that when its cold outside, I get sweet notes. Overall very good and would recommend

First impression is spice and boozy rum with an undertone of woodsy and tonka which I love. I, being low twenties, think it smells mature for my age and oddly enough reminds me of something my grandma would wear. But I still enjoy wearing it on winter evenings and my girlfriend complimented the smell while we were out, until we settled down for the night and she said it was "loud" and recommended I wear less (I put two sprays on). It does last long, though the projection wears away and becomes a strong skin scent.

I didn't like this cologne so much. It has too much of a perfume smell. I think it's a bit too mellow for me. I prefer a citrusy smell. I love Scentbird though!

Okay so keep in mind I am a youngster in college and my tastes are a bit different from those with more sophistication. I tried it and my gf and her friends said I smelled "like an old man" hahaha. However I do see how many people like it. Its a much more dark and aged smell.

Bulgari Man in Black started me on my fragrance journey. The first time I tried it I did not care much for it. But that obviously changed because it was the first (and only so far) Scentbird fragrance that I ran out of. When I ran out, I immediately ordered a full size bottle because I do not want to be out of this fragrance again. To me it has an aromatic spicy scent with just a hint of tobacco and leather. Very masculine. Highly recommend.

Wow, this is a gentleman's scent. My mother loves it on me. It is good for evenings, family dinners and dates. Smells better than Spicebomb, which many people compare it to. It smells less offensive than Spicebomb, which I can't attribute to any one note.

BVLGARI Man in Black has a very strong "fine powder" smell to it. This smell hides anything else going on with the scent.

This is a good warm fall scent. It's spicy a little sweet. It fits the name well. The spicy notes remind me a bit of Viktor and Rolf's Spicebomb. I find myself wearing this to work occasionally. Not a bad scent at all.

It's quite a good spice scent. It may just be my own reaction to this scent, but it's strong at first, yet it falls off fairly quickly. Great impact smell, lacks in longevity.

I enjoy the smell of the men in black. Something about that dark licorice makes it smell sweet yet very manly. It however doesn't last asking as if like. Maybe 3 hours tips and the smell has faded to basically nothing. Other than that I would recommend

A little over-hyped but still a decent overall fragrance. Sweet and spicy and a little unisex. This has been compared to CH Men Prive and I definitely think Prive is better but Man in Black is a nice runner up. Lasts long on my skin but becomes a skin scent within a few hours

I ordered the "Gentleman Gift Set" for my husband and this was included in the box. If you love Viktor & Rolf Spice Bomb - then you will LOVE this scent! It is very similar, but not as spicy. So while to me, Spice Bomb is my favorite fall scent for my husband, this would be good through the winter. It smells soooo good!!

Great date fragrance! Has a good smell that's not too overpowering but gets the job done. Very elegant but dangerous smell, if James Bond had a date night cologne this would be it. Has a sweet aroma at first but then mellows into a more dark and leathery smell. This was my first order from Scentbird and I love it.

Of the 7 or 8 scents recieved since starting my subscription, Man in Black, Bvlgari is one of my top two. I immediately loved the woodsy spicy scent. And yes there is a hint of a retro feel to the scent. But, the romance of wearing a scent my grandfather might have worn is very appealing. The few times I've worm it I recieved numerous compliments along with the "it reminds me of ...." response. A very nice sensation seeing the smiles of triggered memories. While not a scent for everyday wear, I can easily see Man in Black joining the ranks of my two or three signiture scents.
