There are a lot of notes listed for this one and I wondered quite where they were all hiding because the first blast is lemon, lemon, and lemon again. Or maybe it's bergamot and orange because there's no lemon listed. Nevertheless it's a brisk citrus entrance that lasts for some time.
I think I get the darjeeling tea, but I'm not sure. My experience was the aroma of well-steeped tepid tea (or even used bags taken from the pot), rather than the lightly bitter fragrance of darjeeling. Not necessarily bad. It's peppery too and mildly spicy in the fleeting middle notes.
I wore this on a summer day that had some dampness in the air, there'd been a storm in the early morning and the dry-down mingled perfectly with it; mimicking the after-the-rain aroma with a mossy-woody backdrop. The muskiness rounds everything off nicely.
I liked this scent even though it is pretty low-key, though rather gentlemanly too. It's a good all-rounder and would likely work through the seasons if chosen with care.
I’ve never quite understood the appeal of this one myself. Sure, it’s nice enough, with an extended crisp citrus opening, an eminently civilized woody-aromatic heart, and a dusty cedar drydown, but…but it’s not enough for me. The whole composition is so staid and so restrained that it winds up smelling like a constipated Eau Sauvage. A fundamental structure this conservative needs to blow the competition out of the water with sheer quality, as in Eau de Guerlain, or offer a new twist to distinguish it from the rest of the pack, as in Eau Sauvage. Bvlgari pour Homme doesn’t quite manage either, so it’s something of a yawn for me. A good office scent if you want to smell like part of the furniture.
Seventy pound weakling
Bulgari Pour Homme is the weedy seventy pound weakling who got sand kicked in his face by a well endowed muscle man, something like Declaration perhaps. He's a really nice guy, likes oranges and milky tea and doesn't reek of the demon drink. He's a bookeeper at the Returned Serviceman's Club and gets on well with old people who dislike strong smells. He will never get the girl and will marry his cousin. When you want to play it safe, when your bookie is after you for bad debts, he's your man.
Pros: Safe, Gentle, Inoffensive
Cons: Retiring and timid"
Ultra discrete tea scent
I got a 10 ml bottle sprayer decant and its a well rounded scent very aural not projecting
Very mild, close to skin and one of the weakest scents i ever smelled on skin.
And thats a shame for this greatness , i sprayed 10 ml empty in a few days.
In my opinion a scent should stay just a few hours to accompany you in your daily journey but this wasnt the case i this
I love the elegant tea notes and must say its opening is gorgeous but in 30 minutes its gone.
In this version i truly understand the EXTREME version
Pros: Very discrete
Cons: Barely any projection even for your own nose"
A couple named Pepper and Tea
Were married by Frere Bvlgari.
Their union discreet
Is far too effete,
A weak disappointment for me.
