    Was given a sample with a recent purchase, so I gave it a try.

    Double Black is a nice scent, but is too strong and sweet for my liking. The mango is powerful sweet and the juniper berry and spices in the drydown last a long, long time. I agree with other reviewers in that I detect zero coffee in this. While I like both of the fruit notes, this one just isn't right for me. DB would be perfect for a 20 something male, who wanted to go clubing and meet 20 something females.

    DB's a nice fragrance that isn't in your face offensive, so neutral.

    I once had a girlfriend stand with her face buried in my chest for like 60 seconds. We had only been dating a few weeks and I was confused by this. After a while I asked her if everything was okay, thinking that maybe she was crying, and she said she was just smelling me. She stuck her face back into my coat.

    She was smelling this cologne. I cannot recall where we were in the daily lifespan of this cologne, but I'm sure it was somewhere in the dry-down. Just as everyone else states, this starts w mango and pepper and coffee, and then loses some of the mango about 45 minutes in. I do enjoy wearing this -- maybe because I love coffee? -- but the sillage and longetivity are not the best. Also, it isn't the most complex scent out there. It seems best suited to evening wear.

    Lately I've been adding a spritz of Polo Green underneath this to add a little something extra. It adds the green woods smell to the front of the Double Black mango-pepper scent, and then on the back end it adds some much needed leather and some patchouli to the Double Black's coffee and remaining mango. It really produces something more well rounded and complex in my humble opinion.

    Genre: Woody Oriental

    The excessively sweet and unpleasantly chemical fruit note that launches Polo Double Black is more tenacious than I’d like, persisting as a core component of the scent’s spiced and sugared heart. A cluster of gourmand cues and a patchouli base note align Double Black somewhat with Angel, but Double Black is both watered down and freshened up by comparison. The artificial fruit, nutmeg, and bland woods feel cheap and generic – more appropriate in depth and quality to a shampoo than to a personal fragrance. For all the crassness of its composition, Polo Double Black collapses quickly into a nondescript sweet woody skin scent. I can only presume that its enormous popularity stems from its sweetness (yummy for teenage girls, the cynics will say,) and its bland affability. Meh.

    I thought I had reviewed Double Black at least two years ago but there was nothing here. I never would have noticed if the wardrobe random selection function had not bugged out and selected this for me to wear today four times in a row.
    I wish Double Black was better, but as it is this is one of my favorites in the Polo arsenal, falling just short of the original Green and the vintage version of Safari. I love coffee scents but in recent years they've become rather trite, or they will list coffee and produce nothing of the sort (do you hear me, CK Free!?). DB is certainly a coffee scent, with the oft-mentioned mango and pepper sharing the spotlight. There is really little else going on besides that. It's invitingly sweet without being bothersome, is polite enough to wear to work, and while it is linear to the point of boredom it is a pleasant, simple affair. I really like this one because it seems like an attempt to modernize L'Eau du Navigateur (one of the two best coffee scents I've worn) and because LdN is becoming so difficult to find I must give Polo props for bringing back the 'coffee pirate' genre. Now if only they'd make a Triple Black and stick some nice, dirty leather in there.
    For those looking for a coffee gourmand along the lines of Rochas Man that won't stifle a room on hotter days.

    Being Black Ain't Easy

    This is a conservative fragrance. I know many reps who use this as their fragrance of choice because of that fact. It doesn't project much and is a very safe scent.

    You first get a blast of mango, which tapers down to an oriental/citrus mix. It makes me feel clean and classy based on the notes.

    I have worn this for about two years and have never gotten compliments, but then again, it is a safe fragrance that doesn't project at all.

    I get about 4-6 hours of use from this fragrance.

    Pros: Pleasant Scent, Professional
    Cons: Name is misleading, Spotty Longevity"
