This fragrance has definitely 100 percent been discontinued.You can still as of now get a bottle off of amazon.It is not an overstatement to say that this is niche quality - an amazing release from Bvlgari! I always thought that loving a perfume meant that I would automatically want to wear it.After so many years of reading good reviews about it I finally decided to add Black to my perfume collection. On my skin I don't detect any trace of rubber like Tar by Comme des garçons. With time, I've noticed that there are certain scents that I admire greatly, while not really ever wanting to wear. It is seriously one of the most unique perfumes I've ever tried: a bitter powdery, rubbery leather, with a smoky vanillic amber halfway between Shalimar and l'Air du Desert Marocain. Either way, Black is weird and wonderful, and would go great on somebody who is likewise weird and wonderful.Meet Czech and Slovakian women, invite them for date a spend nice time with them.
I have no idea how I had never stumble upon this masterpiece of perfumery while being a perfume enthusiastic for years. I had read all those reviews here and it was literally a blind buy.
In his guide Luca Turin gave it a 5 stars rating but named it hot rubber... It's soft but at the same time have a strong presence and personality. It has this herbal greeness to it that really makes it shimmer throughout the day. For as brilliant as I find its composition, I don't really think it would ever suit me. Bvlgari's Black is very nice - a great unisex gourmand combination of soft vanilla and smooth leather, very likeable and comfortable.
I hate the smell of rubber and certainly don't want to smell rubber. It's just a solid like for me, however: leather is a note that I rarely dislike but only sometimes love, and then most often when it's combined with (stone) fruits or floral notes, so it's no surprise that this one doesn't quite make my heart beat any faster.
Then I started to detect the note of tea and vanilla.
It was so puzzling but uniquely good I had to buy it.
