I used to own Blue Seduction which I loved. At first it was just kind of bleh, but after a little while, I began to realize the risk it took, a brand new take on an aquatic with the mint, and coffee notes, incorporated with the sour melon, and citrus, and that general water/aqua feel. Excellent fragrance indeed, with fantastic longevity and projection. Seduction in Black is just so much better though, it takes all of Blue Seduction, tones it down, and kicks up a gourmandish side, very similar to Armani Code but without the woods. The opening combines both of these elements, but the dry down becomes primarily gourmand. Given your appreciation for Blue Seduction, I think you will love this one too. It was voted most appealing men's frag I believe at the Fi Fi Awards -- an entire award show for fragrances. It's a little bit more difficult to find than Blue Seduction, yet I never smell this on anyone. I never see anyone on BN talk about it except for me, trying to push it a little bit and let people know that this is a top notch fragrance; it has everything it takes to be a big time player in the world of men's fragrances. Unique, (more so if you haven't tried Blue Seduction) versatile, sexy, compliment getter, inoffensive, projects well, lasts up to 10 hours.. sometimes more, and inexpensive. This will always be in my collection since discovering it about 8 months ago, and makes my all time top 25 list, with the likes of GIT, Fahrenheit, Burberry London etc. Much respect for this fragrance, and the entire Banderas house as well.
