    I had decants of these previously, and my wife really like Bvlgari Black for herself, so that one is...

    My wife regularly wears Bvlgari Black and Dior Homme, and smells great in both. I don't like Dior Homme on myself, but like it a lot on her. She also wears RL Safari (the women's version).

    The best deal I have gotten so far was on D&G BY Man. I found a Perfumania that was selling off the last of their stock, and I picked up (2) 50mL bottles @ $19.99 each.
