Bvlgari Black is such an interesting scent. The combination of smoked tea, bergamot and jasmine in the beginning fools your nose into believing you are smelling rubber. Yes, rubber. As in new tires. It's a strange effect that I find addictive. I can see how this could be off-putting to some people. If you wait it out, it morphs into a beautiful vanilla, leather, musk that steers clear, thankfully, of 'creamy' or 'buttery'. This scent is NOT for everyone. I would recommend you try before you buy. This is marketed as a unisex fragrance and I know women who pull it off, but it reads more masculine than feminine to my nose. Also, the rubber smell never fades away completely but does give up the reins to the vanilla-leather accord in the base. An acquired taste type scent and I love it.
