    Default Scent Synchronization Day: Bvlgari Black [Today--Monday]

    The masses have spoken & Bvlgari Black will be our next SSD frag!

    How does Monday, October 1st sound? I think this will give people time to obtain a sample if they don't already own a bottle. I would gladly volunteer to mail out a few samples to those who can't obtain one.

    So, who's in??

    Monday, October 1st sounds great. I`m in.

    I like Black a lot, although it has some lasting power issues - at least on me. I like to spray this one on clothes for better longevity, and anyway, it is such a linear and simple scent that it does not necessarily need skin to reveal all its secrets.

    Btw, I have had two (40ml) bottles of this, and the other one had problems with the much spoken, shaky spray mechanism.
    The one I currently use has been working just fine, but I`m always a bit scared when I twist that cap....

    Sounds great to me - incidently, has anyone had problems with the whole on/off thing on the black bottle? Mine broke early on and now I need pliers to hold it still in order to turn it "on." very annoying.

    I have paranoia about mine breaking because of the horror stories I've heard from this site. I just always keep mine in the "on" position. If I ever want to take some Black on a trip, I just decant some into a 5ml vial.

    If you search "how to fix bvlgari black bottle" a lot of basenoters have contributed their home remedies throughout the years.

    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?

    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?

    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.

    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…
