    Nothing masculine? P-Natra, all the world's Basenotes men are going to be smelling of it. If that's not masculine, I don't know what is. We could all out-masculine you if we could meet you back by the dumpster after school and "discuss" this.

    Come on, P-Natra, we need you buddy. We need a dot of Bulgari Black in Germany. Don't have one of those yet. Time to join in. Your masculine equipment will probably still work right on October second. What have you got to lose?

    Just ordered some niche samples from The Perfumed Court, and I decided at the last minute to throw in a good-sized Bvlgari Black sample. So I'm in!

    This sounds so cool! Since my husband sometimes wears Bulgari Black, I'll swipe his bottle on 10/1 and spritz away! The world will smell sooooooo good!

    What a coincidence, I just ordered a 75ml bottle a few days ago. It's actually my first blind buy based on the reviews here in basenotes. I'm definitely in. :-)

    Great idea! I wondered if the Web would have something like this. Too bad the function is so difficult and for best identification requires registration. This is one of the times when I'd like to step into old-tech and put a map of the world on a corkboard. Of course then I'd be the only one to see it. Rats.

    Now we've got two members in Germany rejecting participation. Half of Finland is going to be wearing Bulgari Black, though. Can we get a dot of BB in Germany somehow?

    I picked up my sample this evening. This stuff is better than I remembered. I'm glad the members of this site have greater wisdom than I do and picked it instead of the scent I voted for.

    This will be a good SSD.

    Fantastic! We'll get to count each of those states if you'll only just reapply at truck stops as you drive through each of those states. That's the ticket! Got to make this 'fficial, see.

    Fantastic--Portugal and Malaysia get their map dots for certain. We might be almost to the claim that the sun will not set on the Basenotes SSD!

    I just realized that CologneJunkie planned on having SSD on a Monday (10/1) and since the scent is Bulgari Black we can call it 'Black Monday'.

    Well, the UPS guy showed up with my Bvlgari Black from Scentiments today. And not a moment too soon, so I could do a pre-SSD "dry run" to see if I liked it. And I'm quite impressed. I don't get "Eau de Michelin" as some people here do... instead, I get a smooth, smoky vanilla.

    Glad that this was chosen for SSD!

    If my squirter fails it comes off with a pair of vice grips and the juice goes into a nice mayonnaise jar and then is hermetically sealed and sent to Dun & Bradsteet for verification.

    BTW: for some reason Black has always reminded me of the steet outside Macy's on Christmas eve. Herald Square. Christmas wasn't Christmas if I didn't wait till Christmas eve to go shopping.

    Thank you very much, Jasper, you are the first Australian. Sincere thanks for your samples offer too, it's very kind.

    It's always a pleasure having members make offers like this on the site, and members willing to jump in and smell like all of us for a day.

    Like CJ, I'm surprised at how much I'm looking forward to this SSD.

    As much as I don't care for this one...in the SSD spirit I will go along with the crowd....however all I smell from this one, is like someone said, "Eau D' Michelin"....my co-workers are going to hate me for this one....they put up with a lot...but Bulgari Black is another story....

    An interesting development for me personally:

    I've somehow managed never to sniff BBlack, despite the fact that it is much discussed and admired at Basenotes and regularly appears at a steep discount at the local Ross store. I suppose I assumed I wouldn't like it much, or it would be too much like things I already owned (in particular, Lolita Lempicka au masculin and Body Kouros). I've got a sample of BBlack coming in time for the SSD, but I had more enthusiasm for the event than for the scent.

    However, yesterday I had a chance to sample Patchouli 24 at the Le Labo shop that now occupies a corner of the San Francisco Barneys NY store. In spite of the misleading name, it smelled exactly like I imagined BBlack would. That didn't surprise me too much; but what did surprise me is how much I LOVED it. So now all my expectations towards BBlack have changed -- from, "will I tolerate it for a day?" to "will it be great enough to satisfy the cravings I now feel towards P24?"
    Spray it, don’t say it…

    New Order's Blue Monday would be a perfect theme tune, let's just pretend it's called Black Monday.
