Armani Code with light leather is what this is.. Too bad it does not project great but overall a good frag.. I don't have too much to add but at 40 bucks for 4.2 oz you can't go wrong.

A woody/aqueous musk-vanilla with a backbone of citrus (mostly orange) and patchouli and hints of suede in the dark blend. The smell keeps on to be basically aqueous and fresh (due to a basic bergamot and hints of ginger and spices) despite the vanilla/musk/suede final velvet. Masculine in a delicate way and very subtle. More than vaguely reminds me Jonh Varvados.

First thing I notice other than the restrained sweet orange opening is the layer of film it leaves on the skin upon application. It hints at something dense and substantial which unfortunately this scent is not - a generous application seems mandatory if you wish to experience the leather. And that's what AIGNER BLACK FOR MEN really is to me - a black leather experience. Not the smooth buttery sweetness of Daim Blond's suede gloves nor the salt-tinged realism of Cuir Ottoman's leather furniture but rather the feel of well-polished black leather boots as I recall my early days as a police cadet. The faintly musky drydown is excellent. Without a doubt, a softly masculine leather scent which deserves a better spotlight.

I suppose I'm not a fan of this. I had wanted to try all of Aigner's scents, Black was my first choice in first to sample. Very sweet opening. Reminded me of the smoothness of Armand Basi Homme (black and white rectangular bottle). But for some reason I cannot smell if anymore after a while. And it doesn't even creep up on you and it's not due to overapplying. I like the sweet soft leather in this but I will stick with others for longevity and potency. Good if you need something more subtle for a few hours, otherwise, I'm not too eager to go and get myself a bottle no matter how much of a fan of Aigner I am.

It's a pity that any perfume offering by Etienne Aigner is often overlooked and none deserves more respect than Aigner Black. Oozing class and sophistication, Black is superbly assured and classy. Pretty linear, it's just lack any developement of surprise and excitement to elevate it to great. But still afterall a very fine perfume and deserves to be better known.

i was totally caught off-guard with this one. i expected yet another designer frag with a blast of citrus and what have you. but this, this ones different.
First thing one would notice when they spray this one is the "refined" approach. it doesnt attack your senses with those overwhelming top notes+alchohol, no, nada, instead this one attacks ones senses in a way which is most pleasant and welcoming. the mood is definitely dark, like black satin..the fruity notes, quite controlled, there is a velvet like note of plum blended with utterly delicious notes of fennel, pink pepper with hints of anise ...i'd do anything for this phase to last forever. it's that good! i can't help but tell, i felt totally "superb & refreshing" when i wore this. there is this amazing aura of positiveness in it. very confident in approach. By Mid notes, a very powdery accord of musk on leather sweeps in adding to the depth of the wonderful top notes. The interpretation of Musk & leather in this scent is not like most (designers) out there, there is an air of mytery about it. by base notes, this is scent swirls up with lovely notes of musk & amber sprayed on leather kinda accord and stays that way...
i can't help but give this one good 8-10 sprays...i would always be in a mood to pamper myself wiht this one. a big assed thumbs up.
