Seduction in Black is for a while crisp, bitter-sweet and mastered by this accord of dark fruits/bergamot (providing bitterness, darkness and angularity), blackcurrant (notable) and synth musky-amber. I detect cedary woodiness and surely cardamom which imprints a freshly musky, fluidy and piquant modern twist. There is a vague Armani Code-Gucci Guilty Homme-Polo Black-Police Dark Men-Montblanc Emblem's sort of vibe (each of them jumping vaguely on mind for a bunch of diverse nuances) but this Bandera's juice unfolds an its own peculiar individuality. The final amber is spicy, kind of bitter-almondy and woody-musky. Cardamom and crisp-angular patterns provide bold freshness, blackberries provide bitter-fruity darkness while nutmeg, ambroxan, blackcurrant and musk enhance a denser enigmatic vibe. This juice is a synth freshly seductive scent with a final twist of warm ambery mystery (and a sort of soapy-herbal "sporty" undertone). Best for night time casual use.

I really enjoy this scent,was impressed by the smell quality.i got a 1oz for under $10.smells like it could be something made by a bigger designer frag compan at $60.Smells like something I would like to wear on a night out,classy smooth smell.been complemented when I wear this.love the manly light musk mixed in with the light water melon smell and vanilla.
I enjoy wearing this one. It's a delicious version of black currant and vanilla with a bit of the nutmeg and coriander in the background. If this had a smokiness to it I might even be inclined to say it has an Aventus like vibe. Not bad at all and would make a great work fragrance.
It does the job.
Currant smoothed out by vanilla is all I pick up here, LINEAR for sure.
Nothing great, very generic - but not as bad quality as i had initially imagined!
smells very much alike Armani Code, wearable at least!
Cheap, harsh, fully sinthetic...thumbs down
