Reviews of Luna Rossa Black

A rather generic dark amber and tonka fragrance with a bit of patchouli and tobacco thing going on. Sweet and a bit powdery (maybe some iris in there?). Is it going to win any awards? Hell no. But do I like it? Yes! Even though it's basic and straightforward, there's just something about this that I enjoy. There are better options if you're in the market for a dark designer fragrance (something like the Man in Black series by Bvlgari or Valentino Uomo Intense/Noir Absolu), but this certainly a competent fragrance. Performance is good, compliment factor is good. If you can find a deal on it, it's not a bad option for a fall/winter designer.

I have really enjoyed the Prada Luna Rossa line of flankers from the very beginning. I actually look forward to every new Luna Rossa flanker to see what Prada has envisioned this time around.

So comes Luna Rossa Black. Sharply sweet oriental fragrance, stirred with an intial splash of lemony bergamot peel that quickly moves into the patchouli's characteristic spicy-sweet floral touch. Seems to have some iris in there, but that note is absent in the fragrance triangle. Amber and musk add a warm, subtly animalic touch to the overall oriental fragrance.

Comparisons to Perry Ellis 360 Black are accurate, which also has a sweet vibe that doesn't relent. Despite the absence of lavender that was present in prior flankers, the Luna Rossa spicy-sweet character is unmistakably there. Personally, I like Luna Rossa Sport the best, followed by the Carbon flanker. This one would be next, then the Extreme version, then the original.

Obviously not a scent for everyone, as this one can come across as cloyingly sweet to some. I wouldn't invest in a full bottle, but I can see myself occasionally spritzing from my small spray decant bottle, unless 360 Black happens to be sitting right there. :-)

Spicy-vanilla opening. Not a food vanilla, more generic and powdery. Was thinking this was close to Le Male or Cuba Gold during the opening but as it dries down, it starts to move closer to Bulgari Black, Midnight in Paris and even a little bit of Versace The Dreamer. All the while you still get the Prada LR sweetness, which I enjoy.

Spring or fall, cooler days, casual/work wear.

Average projection during first 2 hours, then gets closer to skin. Still detectable after 8 hours and catching whiffs throughout the day.

This scent is boring and unimaginative. It is Le Male in a better bottle.

Buy Perry Ellis 360 Black for a third of the price. You’ll get a better fragrance that is in the exact same vein.

Applied at 9am and barely noticeable at 5pm. Call it relevant for about four hours. Decent projection.

I’ll rate this exactly how I rated 360 Black, solely on principle.


Scent: 6/10 (0 for originality)

Longevity: 5/10

Sillage: 5/10

Phew.

Overpowering sweet vanilla. The polar opposite to the classy masculine subtle fresh Sport version.
This is a power fragrance for women at work or for our Middle Eastern Brethren single handedly propping up the economy and inflating the property prices of Knightsbridge.
Almost a wash off situation.

Fragrance: 2.5/10
Projection: 7.5/10
Longevity: 7.5/10

Similar imo to PAH Intense.

There seems to be a slightly generic smell to all these 'Black' fragrances.

A sort of fruity, darkish wood with hints of tobacco. This one also has a marzipan note.

Alien Man isn't far behind either.

Nevertheless, I like it as I do Alien.
