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’s influence.

From the first sniff of this fragrance I was hooked. Wore it for an entire month. Very long lasting, masculine fragrance. Not for everybody. Best in Fall and Winter.

Not quite what I expected
I didn't love this scent, but I don't hate it either. What matters is that hubby likes it well enough. It starts out very powdery, which I never expect from a men's scent. It's not the baby powder powdery that you often get in women's fragrances, but a clean powdery. Thankfully, the powdery dies down. It doesn't go away entirely, but it dies down enough to let other scents come through, which hang around as an earthy, dark floral. I wouldn't buy it for him again, but I'm certain he'll use up this little bottle of it.

Very pleasant smell but a tad bit....acidic(?) (maybe sharp is the word im looking for) for my taste. It hits the nostrils subtley at first but then stays on strong. Very memorable.

I really like this scent. It's a very bold scent but it's not overwhelming. I've been looking forward to receiving this cologne and I am not disappointed! I'm going to enjoy wearing this during the cold seasons.

Dark, Sexy, Grown
This cologne appeals to everyone in my opinion. I got a few compliments wearing this fragrance. It is a powerhouse it lasted all day at work and then some so 10+ hours easy. When you wear this fragrance it feels as though your at a classy bar with a grand piano and lite jazz music candles everywhere.

I was a little hesitant to make my first shipment Bvlgari: Man in Black. But boy am I glad I did. It's a very soft yet manly scent in my opinion. And I have been asked a lot what I am wearing. I highly recommend this cologne.

By far my favorite so far!!!
The smell is a little citrusy (if that's a word!) but does have a woodsy/earthy type smell too. This lasts longer than any other cologne I have tried on this site. I have received several compliments from female friends and strangers alike. Can't say enough good things about this cologne!

Warm and Masculine
I absolutely love this cologne. One of the few colognes I've smelled and liked right off the bat, without having to warm up to it first. It's warm and spicy (and smells divine), but is also very smooth and perfectly straddles the thin line between noticeable and too intense. It's not unlike John Varvatos Dark Rebel, but is much smoother and warmer with the spices and rum ruling. Over time, some of the subtler notes will expose themselves beautifully and create a very round and satisfying scent. The longevity and performance of this fragrance is also great: When I've tested it on my wrist, I could make it out a good eight hours later; when I first tested the fragrance, I took a shower an hour or two later and could still smell it on my wrist afterwards. While I don't use a particularly powerful bodywash, the fact that the smell was there after soap and water is seriously impressive. Of course, it must be mentioned that Man in Black is a serious compliment-getter and lady killer. My girlfriend LOVES this fragrance and is darn near glued to my neck whenever I wear it. It gives off a confident, warm, manly air, and coupled with the fact that it smells great, will definitely garner some attention, female and otherwise.. Man in Black is aptly named; it's an unmistakably masculine fragrance with a vibe that's simultaneously mysterious and inviting while also smelling very refined. The performance is also spectacular. Whether your "black" of choice is a leather jacket or a suit and tie, Man in Black will serve both young and old very well.

Good Scent
This is a dark, powdery and spicy scent. The initial spray can be a little overwhelming, but the dry down is definitely where the magic happens and it smooths out quite a bit. It is definitely a more sophisticated manly scent, and could work for multiple settings: office (just be careful to not overdo it), date night, night out, and especially well suited for formal wear. This is one of the few colognes that actually lasts all day (and then some) on me, and I can usually still detect it on my clothes the next day. As this is more sophisticated and a bit darker, it is also a bit more mature; not likely suited for a teen or someone in their 20's or early 30's.

Good, but for a more seasoned man
It’s a bit more of a sophisticated, older gentleman scent. Think of a gentleman’s club with booze and cigars.

Ok, but a bit overbearing
This was a little too much for me to deal with initially, with time, it smoothed out and was not as overbearing as I initially thought it was..
