Dangerously synthetic to the point of cloying and irritating, Black Label has a heavy rubbing alcohol and floral opening but quickly is uprooted by a harsh and heavily synthetic middle note 20-30 seconds in that destroys its appeal. Black in name only, has none of the appeal of many of its competitors. Spicy to a certain extent and suggestive as an oriental but poorly blended and lacking any character or charm. Calms down after 10 minutes but the unappealing note remains throughout. Projection is below average and longevity is around two hours maximum. One to avoid, even at a budget price.
