Bulgari Man comes in very nice clothing, almost formal and classy, a black tie kind of bottle. The name of the fragrance, like so many others these days, especially in the designer realm, is dull but unpretentious. The fragrance has a subtle woody-floral construction in the style of Guerlain Homme and ST Dupont and Cartier's Declaration. It starts with a mild bergamot and is shortly joined by a muted violet leaf aroma. Many masculines today use violet leaf lazily and harshly, but Man uses it judiciously to add depth to a somewhat transparent recipe.Vetiver, sandalwood and musk round out the team. Unspectacular, but solidly done. This makes a fine choice for those occasions where discretion is the better part of valor: weddings, funerals, work, church and job interviews.

A much better offering from Bulgari than Bulgari Pour Homme, in my opinion. Better than Bulgari PH Extreme as well. Has a deeper and richer vanilla muskiness I really enjoy after the bergamot top notes wear off. But still kinda boring. A nice office scent for sure, but not as interesting as Bulgari Black
A very very green fragrance. Not something I would wear, If feels like it needs something...I wish I detected the 'warm' base notes more, it may have helped it
On application I'm picking up bergamot and pear coupled with a lovely violet note. The fragrance is balmy, light and quite watery though very well composed. As time goes by it gets a little sweeter with woods showing up within the mix. I have to say this scent is quite enchanting and smells really good. It projects off you well you but never overpowering though the longevity for me was about four to five hours. All in all the balmy fruit and floral notes that are joined by woods gets my thumbs up.
He bergamot is paired with a floral undertone, partly due to a fairly unique lotus impression, followed by a bit of wood and musk that develops on my skin in a very insipid manner and disappears anfter a disappointing hour. No More.
I like this but somethings missing. Needs a bit more wow factor to me its a bit dule and boaring. Maby if a little of leather and citrus was thrown in the mix this would rock . But like a said it lacks o bit of umpth but not to shabby . Wate for drydown as it gets a bit powdery wich i do not like . im more into fresh outgoing sents.
Decent scent! The projection is below average which really injures this frag. Slightly woody and floral and not sweet (not a bad thing). I detect some florals going on in this as well. Not too bad for the price.
The violet leaves and bergamot place this fragrance right next to Gucci PH II. However, Bulgari's version is much more understated. Original? No. But, Bulgari Man still bears the hallmarks of its designer house: it is well balanced and pleasant. It is a good, conventional fragrance. And, believe me, I wanted to hate it. I could not. It smells neat. I wear it at the office. I wear Gucci PH II in casual settings. When I feel rakish, I break out the M7. When I play, I wear Pure Havanne. But, when I want to smell pleasant to my colleagues at work and be taken seriously, I choose Bulgari or Zegna. Bulgari Men conforms. In a positive way.
Generic, woody scent. There is a tiny bit of floral somewhere. And smoke, or rather, cigarette ash. Pleasant, but pointless. The reviewer who described it as yet another shade of grey got it right. Now I know what Bulgari Man reminds me of: a weak echo of Sung for Men.
Bvlgari Man is a relatively good fragrance but it lacks both personality and projection. Pretty similar to the large stock of violet-made scents out there: YSL L'Homme Libre, Burberry Touch, and lots more. The opening is overwhelming but after a while the scent settles down into a flat floral-aquatic aroma. Honestly I expected much more from Bvlgari specially coming from such a distinctive jeweler. However it has average sillage and longevity.
