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.
