This thread isn't exactly what I was expecting (a chance to state how I think Bvlgari Black literally smells like a ghetto), but I concur with you about the Armani Attitude. It is a really nice cherry/vanilla pipe tobacco scent, but those candied notes go away so quick and it shoots straight to a somewhat unexciting musk, then goes away completely. I was going to buy it until this kept happening over and over.
Now back to Bvlgari Black... It smells like downtown Detroit. Tires, dumpsters, asphalt, construction, and people...all coming together to blend into something not exactly unplesant. An acquired taste, for sure. But very "homey" in the same way, as I have a lot of family that live in Hamtramck, a Polish sector of Detroit.
