I am a huge fan of the color purple. So, when I ran across this cologne, I was already predisposed to like it. After a long search- I live in a small city in TN, I finally was able to smell some. I purchased a small bottle. I have received several positive comments and look forwards to adding this to my top cologne list!
I mainly smell chocolate. I like chocolate. Do I want to give off this aroma? No.
In the heartnotes there is a sickly sweet note reminiscent of Joop. The drydown gets slightly better...
One of the few scents I have had to wash off. I was drawn to it by the name, disliked the first whiff, sprayed myself with trepidation, waited a half hour, smelled again, gave up, Very disappointing.
It is ok. I tried it, it was just meh. Nice, but not my style and not the scent I want to broadcast as a projection of myself. I wouldn't pay money for this. It didnt smell bad, just meh.
I like it a lot, but I wish it came in a spray form. I had a small bottle, and found a larger one in hopes that it would have a spray nozzle. It is also very weak, doesn't project, and disappears. That being said, I like the smell while it lasts!
I wanted to like this Dunhill. When I started down the primrose path of cologne I asked the Hive Mind which colognes where the best for men. An older gentleman suggested this one. Bolstered by strong reviews I set out on a search. I especially wanted to find Dunhill as I did not want a common scent. I eventually acquired a bottle. Although I have received complements (from a middle aged lady) I initially thought the bottle was a fake because it smelled so different that I expected. But, it was confirmed, and I just almost never wear it. I have kept the bottle, but it is not one of the favorites.
Wow! About 15/20 years ago I was going through an old box of my fathers and found a small sample vial of this. I liked it, but thought no more of it until about 2 years ago, when my cologne interest took off. Having seen the voluminous reviews here, I added it to my shpritz list. I was expecting wonders, but my first reaction was of disgust. Still, I dutifully shpritzed it on my inside elbow (I was wearing rolled up sleeves). I left the store without a purchase, and thought no more of it. 4 hours later, when I took off my shirt, my nose was hit by this great scent. I eventually tracked it back to my sleeve, and couldn't stop smelling it. The next chance I had, I went back about bought my first bottle of Antaeus. I have since bought a spare, just in case! This is also one of the few scents my gf could stand, and even thought was nice, which is a huge victory. BTW, the longevity is great, I could smell it on the shirt for several days! This is my number one cologne.
I get melon from this one. Too sweet to my taste, but inoffensive
I was really happy to try this today, as Black has been quite hard to sample. I am disappointed! It smells bleh and too sweet n light. I am happy I finally tried it, but am done with the House of Bvlgari.
I was in the market for a new cologne, I tried this one, found it unsubstantial. I eventually bought Antaeus. However, I found myself with a gift certificate, so I went back, tried it again, and bought the EDT. I am very impressed with it now, it has leapt near the top of my list. It is more delicate than my usual, but, hey! The girls seem to like it.
