Reviews of Black

Safe generic mandarin orange freshie. Last longer than most of my other fresh scents. $35 for a 100ml @ Ross. Not bad not great.

This is a rather generic middle of the road scent... but what else would you get from a mass produced mainstream designer fragrance. It does have a solid opening but as you go along for the ride through the mid and base it turns synthetic and boring. Shouldn't offend and the online price is solid.

I like the top notes and the drydown, although the whole thing was leaning towards a synthetic feel, but pleasant throughout. Sweetness mixed with the basil and mint, so you smell fresh, green and sweet for most of the day. Decent sillage and longevity, I was pleasantly surprised with the performance.

I find Black to be a generic cologne. It smells good and is very masculine but does not stand out at all. I do not find it unique which is why I only gave three stars. I think that guys will like it more than girls, because it is very manly and sporty. 6.7/10.

A supermely personal creation from start to end!you can not mistake this scent for anything else when poeople smell this,they know you are wearing KCB.first i am surprised by how freshness and brightness the smell is for it having the dark bottle.this one is in a few words Sophisticated,Virile,Elegant,Aromatic,Fresh, Elaborate and Versatile.

Fresh top notes of Mint,Basil and Ginger fade into charming heart of lotus,incense and cedar,while Musk, Violet leaf and Amber boring up KCB with an air of strength and masculinity as it is strong enough for you to smell it yet it isent overpowering.

This is such a wonderful fragrance that the magic stays with both wearer and the lucky person next to him.i would recommend for any season and any occasion.Perfect for smart man and finally Highly recommend if you are looking for something new you wont be disappointed.


Longevity?Very Good on my skin.

As a woman. Black by Kenneth Cole appealed to me. In fact, I bought it for a male friend as a birthday gift a few years ago. At that time it was scrumptious. NOT him. The fragrance! As my taste has improved though the years, I am drawn to more masculine scents. Widening my boundaries from the more "safer" ones. Still, it is a great buy. Highly recommended.
