It opens with a feeble tea note. Now we now we Bulgari loves tea - recalling the glorious opening of B. Black - but this is more of a non-event, and a touch of papyrus with watery ambery musk does not make it any better. Poor projection and a total longevity on me of less than two hours.
Bulgari Pour Homme Soir by Bulgari, 2006
I wasn't sure if this had enough umph for me. I loved the opening notes, but the compliments I'm getting are unreal. I actualy had a woman tell me not only how great I smell, but if you could have sean the look on her face you would think she just discovered heaven. I'm not kidding she said when I came into the room it was just a soft beautiful breeze, she said it was perfect. Hours later I was still catching wiffs of this beautiful fragrance.
Clean, tea, woody, earthy and musky. Sexy and calm and luxurious at the same time. Black tie most suited this baby... well at least wear your designer shirt when you wear this one. Although the name suggest you to wear it at night but quite safe to wear at daytime, Indoor obviously.
I'm trying this alongside Pour Homme Extreme, and some of the original BPH that I sprayed on earlier...this is the smoother flanker. Right away, it's different: a slightly sweetened wood with just a dash of grapefruit on top. Together, these create that reedy/bamboo/grassy effect that I like in whatever fragrances I find it in. The grapefruit is soon gone in Soir, and the lightest tinge of anise and spices start to accentuate the wood, which is still not very sweet but begins to show a little more resinous, honeyed character. Later it gets a bit more musty and powdery, but it stays well-controlled like its brothers. Its grayness is more wet, organic and leafy compared to the concrete gray of Extreme, and this allows it to step out of the corner office and down to the bar for a date more readily than Extreme. Soir also has the longevity to make it past five o'clock. Still, I prefer Extreme's drier emphasis over Soir's slight powderiness. Overall, the Bulgari PH family is surprisingly homogeneous, but I think they're all good. The original is utterly unique among all the scents I've encountered, and the two flankers showcase two opposite sides of it marvellously. They all compete favorably with things like Armani Eau or Monsieur de Givenchy for the title of Most Professional Office Scent.
From the Bulgari website: Olfactive Family: Woody Amber Top Notes: Darjeeling Tea, Lifescent and Papyrus Wood Base: Amber and Musk This may be the fragrance for those of us who find the opening green/spice note of original pour Homme and pour Homme Extreme too harsh, unpleasant or, in the case of Extreme, well, too extreme. In pour Homme Soir there is just enough sweetness from tea and amber to make it more suited to my personality. I find it interesting that in Soir I can smell its relation to a whole range of Bulgari fragrances that goes beyond it simply being a flanker in the pour Homme line. I certainly don't have a sensitive nose but I smell characteristics of Aqua, Omnia, the The series and Jasmin perfumes. My wife routinely wears perfumes from Bulgari and -as is typical when comparing most feminine/masculine lines- they seem superior to and friendlier than the men's fragrances. I find myself wanting a bit more grace and elegance while maintaining something definable as "masculine." Also, I'm one of those who is drawn to Bulgari because they create fragrances which are subtle and restrained yet incorporate some novel combinations. Pour Homme Soir hits on all these points: it is at once subtle and slightly unique while establishing an identity common to the entire brand.
Smells like a faint citrus, mixed with wet paper. Picture Chrome, without the metallic accord, and a better blend of citrus. Not bad, but not for me.
I bought this fragrance out of curiosity(no tester at the store), which i don't normally do and I was really impressed.I made the decision solely on the fact that I have used Bulgari's fragrances before and I am really pleased.It is elegant, sophisticated and long lasting, but in an elegant way. It continues to draw positive comments from people who smell it on me and they alsways ask where can they get it.
Bulgari pour Homme Soir by Bulgari - An initial burst of refreshing bergamot, halfway between a lemon and an orange, with its tart and juicy green and very faint mint-like aspects, professes the clean and fresh opening. The darjeeling tea beckons the invigorating bergamot to stew in the heart, and infuses it with its somewhat powdery and medicinal woodiness morphing the sharp citrus into a more fruity bent. Guaiacwood, with its honey and smoky features, and papyrus, with its withered grassy and light wood facets, serve as a background for the simmering brew, which has acquired a sweet and wet earthiness. The waiting base, with its soft and almost syrupy amber as well as its radiant and slightly soapy musk, tugs for recognition and carries the tea blend to its delightful drydown. This classy fragrance can be an all-season treat, and has average projection, becoming a skin scent, and good longevity.
This is fairly good. I'm not dancing in the streets or anything, but for people who like the restrained Bulgari style and find sweeter scents difficult to wear, Pour Homme Soir could be a great option. Soir is as an earthy, powdery green scent. The earthy note is really what makes the accord work - a sort of mineral dust feel with a cooling yet sweet vibe. This reminds be of chilled version of Terre d'Hermes' mineral note with a dash of Creed Vetiver '48's wet rocky note thrown in. Kind of chalky and aloof. However, all this nice mineral ambience starts about an hour after application. The opening is a bland shade of green, and barely avoids smelling like harsh detergent for awhile. So that will probably keep me from buying, at least until my Creed Vetiver runs out.
Is it me but BVLGARI Soir smells singularly like basil? I think it's style or genre must be tea/green; it is an extremely subtle scent as well. It makes me wonder why some feel it as classy or something when it is not such by far. It mostly smells cheap and meaningless which translates into one undesirable scent.
