Not bad at all, but not great. Unimpressed. I know it's not supposed to be a scent for oud afficionados/purists but I think it could have been formulated a little better. The vetiver takes away from the potential oud drydown but this could be a result of the aromachemical used in the formula, Givaudans oud, which is nice but dries down into vetyver like Tom Ford's scent.

I know a woman who wears this incredibly — I could not imagine it on a man. Rubber is bitter, Black lacks the bitterness of a burnout; it is for the sensual, refined and powerful.
