Bulgari Black has an almost indescribable scent. It starts out with a leather tobacco scent and, although that sounds terrible, the scent is very sexy and soft. I love it. I've looked for this in a perfume rather than a eau de toilette but can't find it. However, even the eau de toilette stays on quite long. LOVE it
The rubber scent referred to is of cold fresh rubber, like a new tire shop. Amazingly, it's head clearing and refreshing. The other notes are subtle but elegant background. A true unisex and unique scent. Saving for a big bottle.
BLACK BY BVLGARI is rated in the the top Ten scents of all time. Lucas Turin..book Perfume. I bought it on the review in the book. BLACK is my favorite..it is very layered and has that rubber tire and goes into a mix of floral and exotic woods. I have had more compliments on this fragrance. Men more than women. I also like Angel, Chanel #5, Rive Gauche by Yves, Calandre by Paco and L'Air Printemps by Nina. so, if you like any of these you'll love Black..
