Reviews of Driven Black

This is definitely the adopted brother of the family.
Not born from the loins of AVON.
It's got serious game.

Reminds me a lot of Tam Dao...not an exact replica, but very much cousins.

Perhaps a "Poor Mans Tam Dao"?

A spicy woody oriental that doesn't overwhelm and stays close to the skin. There's a little bit of sweet spicyness that gives a hint of a Le Male vibe. I own this and Driven Sport and they're both really nice fragrances for the price. They can replace quite a few more expensive scents with ease and are so easy for "go to" fragrances. Don't let the Avon label dissuade you. This entire line is very good.

Good simple woody fragrance in the style of Agua Brava, only darker and less complex. It's the coniferous wood note in this (Virigina Cedar?) and citrus top notes that remind me a lot of Agua Brava, but this is much longer lasting than Agua Brava, probably due to use of synthetic fixatives. Very subtle sweet notes in the base are probably what makes this a "woody oriental", but there is very little sweetness to this.

Driven Black is a good masculine fragrance that is appropriate for all occasions, and is a good "go to" scent. It's nothing spectacular or unique, but is a good solid fragrance that costs little money.

A word to the wise: only sample this on skin, not on paper. This scent smells flat, dull and synthetic on paper, yet comes to life on skin.

MY RATING: 7.5/10

A smooth vetiver scent. Driven Black smells surprisingly good -- in the bottle and on the skin -- for an Avon product. But "for an Avon product" is a big qualifier. It lasts well for an Avon product too, but Avon scents are notoriously short-lived.

Yes, a smooth velvety suede kinda musk scent. A little citrus sprinkled on top. Not bad for the price, unique, but very synthetic smelling, so beware! Lasts long and projects well, though.

i only tried the sample of this but I must say that its really nice !!! A lot of people may get turned off of this because you can buy it from AVON but hey whatever,lol... it smells good and thats all that matters... Thank goodness my mom sells Avon cuz now I can always get it at an awesome price... And ya its not on the same level as the L'eau D'isseys or anything like that but whenever I cant think of what I wanna wear I can always turn to this
