Reviews of Bulgari pour Homme Soir

Bvlgari pour Homme Extrême would be the last hurrah of this style for the house on the men's side of their perfume fence, taking one more stab at the tea and musk/aromatics combo that set Bvlgari apart from the crowd. Bvlgari Pour Homme (1995) was the debut masculine outing for the house of Bvlgari, and featured the what was once considered the house note of darjeeling tea, carried over from Eau Parfumée au Thé Vert (1993), and composed into a soft, transparent, complex white musk for men. Bvlgari Black (1998) was the culmination of their tea theme, so experimentation followed. Bvlgari Pour Homme Extrême (1999) saw a drier, sharper, and more masculine take on the theme with woods and spice as the main focus over the musk of the predecessor, and that version sat better with the "meat and potatoes" segment of the masculine fragrance community, plus let Bvlgari step out of its usual lane of restrained tea fragrances at the time. A change in a the guard was occuring, and has Bvlgari became more successful, they started to really branch out with their composition styles, moving away from tea and into standard categories starting with Blv (2000) and Blv Pour Homme (2001) respectively. Women started receiving more standardized feminine fare while men got Bvlgari Aqva (2005), which was as big a mission statement as any that Bvlgari had joined the rest of Designerland with their creations. Bvlgari Pour Homme Soir (2006) feels like a final goodbye to the 90's era of Bvlgari for this reason, at least so far as masculine perfumes go, and returns the original men's pillar line to its soft musk roots.

Bvlgari Pour Homme Soir is very similar to the original in tone, but cuts out many of the superfluous notes that barely registered in that original scent's gray structure, and building up from the core of what is left. In essence, this makes Bvlgari Pour Homme Soir like a "light" version of the original, and a touch more focused on the tea, as little gets in the way of it. The musk of Bvlgari Pour Homme Soir still provides the background for this tea like the original, but with less amber or spice to muddle it up. The tea note opens Bvlgari Pour Homme Soir crystal clear, dark, and a tad more romantic. A woodsy balmy papyrus note wafts in with some dry bergamot, but without the sweet orange blossom or white florals of the original. The tea shines almost by itself like an iteration of Bvlgari Black stripped of it's thick rubbery essence, but retaining a touch of vetiver to keep Bvlgari Pour Homme Soir a tad earthy. White musk and a dialed-back amber finish off the relatively simple scent, and the whole thing feels like its name implies: a relaxed evening version of Bvlgari Pour Homme. Wear time is about on par with the original, but sillage is a bit more slight, even if the scent itself wears darker and more aromatic. Bvlgari Pour Homme Soir can be seen as something of a compromise between the sharp aromatics of Bvlgari pour Homme Extrême and the rounded pillowy plushness of Bvlgari Pour Homme, since it borrows the dryness of the former and the richness of the latter to make a scent that layers well with either. Bvlgari Pour Homme Soir feels particularly more romantic to my nose than the other two, so that's where I would use it.

Fans of Bvlgari pour Homme Extrême won't like the direction this flanker takes the series on its final ride, and users of the original might even find Bvlgari pour Homme Soir a tiny bit redundant in their collection, so I feel the real target for this scent was for folks who didn't own either because there were bits about them they didn't like. Bvlgari pour Homme Soir really gets down to the core of the accord made by perfumer Jacques Cavallier, and although no perfumer is signed onto this (meaning nobody knows if he returned for this or if it's somebody else's work), I feel like all attempts were made to tie Bvlgari pour Homme Soir into the legacy established by the previous entries. You don't hear much talk of this anymore in men's circles, and the soft musk is unisex enough for women or people generally preferring feminine musky fragrances to take a stab at it, making Bvlgari pour Homme Soir feel most like a good flanking choice for owners of Calvin Klein cK One (1994) than anything, since that too has a tea note buried in its mix. I give Bvlgari pour Homme Soir a thumbs up, but the simplicity of the scent also translates to linearity, and I find it has less character in spite of itself when compared to the original Bvlgari pour Homme, but is at least for a sniff for fans of the style. After this, there would be no going back for Bvlgari, who would commit to their aquatics and synthetic woods masculines going forward, leaving what many consider their best era of perfume behind to be more like competitors Dolce & Gabbana or Versace. You can still sometimes find Bvlgari pour Homme Soir in a mall store or as unsold stock in a department store like Dillard's, but outside of that, you'll have to get it on them interwebz.

TAKE IT FROM ME:

I like the cologne but it does smell like D&G Light Blue for Men.

My first review ever on this site. I am glad it is for this fragrance. I am sitting on the couch, drinking some kind of Japanese peach Chu-hi and the tea scent from BHS is just so complimentary to it. What a relaxing scent. A big plus, my wife didn't get all bent out of shape when I came back home tonight, which means I'll be able to wear this one without having to go to DefCon 2.

This is definitely something I will wear at the office, and with friends. Night or day, it doesn't really matter in my book when it comes to this marvelously calming scent.

On my skin this smells almost exactly like earl grey tea. Having said that, I quite like this (though I despise earl grey tea).
Floral tea, some spice and a lot of sweetness (to my very amateur nose I'm guessing that's the musk).
Longevity is no issue on my skin.
I like this and think it's pleasant and I enjoy tea notes but it's about the limit of sweetness that I personally want to wear.

This is by no means a signature scent, but one that I like in my collection none the less. It has a soft tea spice fragrance that I find very appealing. I agree with other reviewers in that I might actually like this more if it had more projection. 4 sprays and after 4hrs it is essentially a skin scent.

I like wearing it in the evening or out to dinner, but rarely to the office, although it would be a respectable work scent for fall/winter.

7/10

Should have been called Bulgari light. Green tea with faint woods and musk. As previously mentioned, an intense or extreme version should be made. Perfect for days when you want a low key scent. Perfect for office wear. 7/10
