Reviews of Luna Rossa Black

I like Black. I think it uses enough of the original's DNA to be a true flanker while bringing something new to the line, mainly a relatively restrained, smooth and dark, non-resinous unsweetened amber and clean tonka fragrance that imparts an understated impression of shaving cream and soap. I’ve noticed a lot of people describe it as “sweet,” but I don’t find it particularly so, I get some light sweetness through the tonka and amber but to a much lesser degree than is found in most modern fragrances that employ the same notes. (For example, it’s nowhere near as sweet as something like the tonka driven, Stronger With You, or or even the less sweet, amber-centric D&G The One). The amber mostly provides warmth and roundedness and with the tonka there is a light but present sweetness throughout the whole. It's a very smooth fragrance, and whether it's ambergris or some clever sort of use of ambroxan, Black has a warm, gently vibrating cushioned resonance that works with its smooth texture to create something that is sleek and modern but not cold or without human connection. As a result, it's an easy wear that conveys a somewhat sophisticated, smooth, and modern presence, clean and well-groomed but not necessarily youthful and trendy. This is my favorite in the line, and probably shares its closest resemblance with Luna Rossa Carbon, which takes the sleek black modern shaving cream theme to a much more assertive and pronounced level for better or worse. This is easy to wear casually but matches up well with a bit of a dressy air. Performance is good, with what seems like intentional semi-reserved projection. Final rating: 8/10 and worth sampling, especially if you generally enjoy the line.

This is perfectly fine, there's nothing inherently bad about it. It's a sweet and inoffensive tonka-driven scent. But, to me its also pretty forgettable.

I love this one, I have them all and this one is my favorite, smells a lot like the discontinued Bvlgari Black, the one that smells like rubber.
I alway get people commenting when I wear this one, Great Frag.

Yes, spicy musky aromatic vanilla plus hints of fruits and dark woods. Woodiness is intense and provides a tad of structure to an otherwise overly soapy (bath foam-like a la Gaultier Le Male) concoction. The aroma is pleasant, cool, "cloudy", dynamic but frankly somewhat flat, easy going and generic. A fragrance being frank overly talky-soapy to hit the top-stage of the night time out (or clubbing) naughty olfactory beasts.

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. :-)
