If you're new to the fragrance community then buy it, if you have 50 plus bottles already you might want to skip this. I have a stock of 20 batches, and it goes easily for 8 to 10 hours with 3 of strong projection and marvelous sillage. Still, this has to be tried by every serious fragrance fan and it's a must in every collection as things like this in Fragworld are rare. My only complain is about performance is so weak, after one or more hour it dissapears, starts like it ll raze everything to the ground and vanishes quickly. Weird that there is no iris note in Black, it would totally match. As a few others have noted, this is easily a daytime fragrance.
Performance is fantastic on the vintage ones (if you can find them), not bad on the slightly older and, unfortunately, rather weak on the newer ones. Black also so close to V&A Midnight In Paris but more masculine, I sold my MIP because it was too feminine and creamy for me and got bvl Black instead. I have read about this perfume for years and finally bought it. so tomorrow I am spraying all my work colleagues :'D with it. I was playing with Hiris earlier and Hiris is way more masculine imo. Very soft and not at all what "black" of the bottle would imply.
I decided it maynot be worth my life in gifting this to her. The overall effect is comforting and, yet, sexy - if that makes sense... From the back and forth reviews, recommend you try before you buy. When I do get home I plan on immediately showering away my old cologne to give Bvlgari Black a well-deserved place on my body. I have held off purchasing it because of the elusive "rubber tire" scent..while I do get that accord shortly after, it fades and this is just a lovely slightly smokey hot steamy cup of tea.
Black is a concept fragrance, it plays to the limited crowd who like the smell of rubber and it wants to evoke a racing track feel.
