    Roberto Cavalli Black by Roberto Cavalli

    Soapy, musky "toilette splashing water" kind of fragrance with a sort of bath foam smell due to a prickly accord of lavender-citrus-bamboo-tonka-musk-pepper. Very masculine, aromatic, green and clean with a refreshing toilette sparkling (even thanks some spices) soapy smell, at least in the first part of its development. Set the dry down the scent becomes more creamy and consistent. The cedarwood placed in the base impresses a touch of dry texture to an otherwise too watery fragrance. It's a sensual, casual a bit sportive scent in the clan of Body Kouros, Le Male and Lempicka au Masculine but with a darker beat and a less dusty temperament. It reminds to me a bit the smell of clean and airy washing of my youth. May be a touch of amber enriches the base with its mild resinous temperament. Some dry flowers in the heart give a touch of sophistication and romanticism. Decent projection at the beginning and very bad longevity on my skin. Not bad.
