Bvlgari MAN In Black Review


As you may know, Bvlgari MAN is one of my favourite fragrances which I own. I just love it, and I have since I got it in 2011. Since then there has been MAN extreme, and their latest one is this, Bvlgari MAN In Black.

If you don’t know about the brand it’s called Bulgari, but stylised as BVLGARI from the classic latin alphabet, and is a premium, high end luxury goods brand.

Let’s get to the bottle; It’s the same classic bottle as the original MAN scent, however this one is an opaque black bottle, with gold detailing. You get a good spray from the atomiser, there’s no need for a lot of spraying from this bottle.

The scent is quite powerful, and definitely as dark as the bottle. It’s very woody however slightly warm and spicy, it’s definitely a masculine scent and fit for the evening rather than a summer’s day. If you’re in need of a new fragrance and want something manly this is definitely worth considering. This is an eau de parfum so is naturally stronger than a typical EDT, and I think it does show once you’ve sprayed it.

Best season to wear – Autumn/Winter
Scent type – Woody, Spicy
Age Recommendation – 23+
Best Worn – Evening, Casual, Formal

Top Notes – Rum, Cardamom, Cinnamon

Middle Notes – Tuberose, Iris, Leather

Base notes – Benzoin, Tonka bean, Guaiac wood, Black amber

    Hi there I like yourself really loved the Gucci envy from a few yearscback, you said on the previous page that you could recommend. Very similar one and I wondered what your findings were, some of my other faves are bleu de chanel and tom ford black orchid and chanel allure homme Blanche edition. Thanks in advance

    Hi Craig,

    Yes I can recommend Floris Santal which is very similar to Gucci Envy For Men, read more on that here. D&G The One Gentlemen is also close, but like Envy that’s now discontinued.
    Hope that helps,
    Michael 🙂
