    This doesn't sound half bad. Maybe worth a blind buy for 50 bucks.

    It was announced well over a year ago. I've been trying to get a bottle but it seems only Austrailia and the Baltic counties had any.

    Salvador Dali Pour Homme in the bottle that looks pregnant with big ole lips is one of my top five fragrances. It has monster longevity also.

    There is a Salvador Dali museum/store in St. Petersburg, FL - not far from where I live. I may stop in to see if they have it.

    the link I gave is for the Museum and I would love to see it also. The pics look like it's a cool Dali store first, Museum second.

    I suddenly got "Black Hole Sun" by Soundgarden stuck in my head.

    It's a very nice museum and store - and I have previously bought some cool items/gifts there. I usually take family/friends who are visiting me to go see it.

    I visited the museum many moons ago during a summer at the Bollettieri Academy and it was a wonderful experience. If they really sell fragrances at the gift shop, that would make it even more awesome.

    Also, the fragrance does sound nice. Hopefully it captures the darkness of Salvador Dali PH but takes it down a notch or two to make it more wearable. I look forward to trying it out.

    Well I like it a lot - it has heaps of lasting power and sillage. I always test numerous scents in shops by spraying them on the back of my hand. So far this year, it's easily been the longest lasting one I've sprayed on.

    I'm just waiting for the store to put it on sale before I buy it. I could have got it cheaper when they had a "Buy two scents at this reduced price" offer, but I didn't like any of the other offerings.

    I guess we have a different reaction to this fragrance Renato.

    I finally got to the Dali museum and tried it out. It was one of those fragrances where I sprayed it on my hand and then smelled it and thought "Did I spray anything there - I can't really smell it very much". Anyway when I could smell it I thought it was OK, but not anything special - it reminded me a little bit of Calvin Klein Euphoria for Men. I guess with the word "black" in the title, I was expecting a much "darker" fragrance.

    I think Salvador Dali pour Homme and Le Roy Soleil and much better Dali fragrances.

    Salvador Dali pour Homme and Le Roy Soleil are two great fragrances as is Laguna pour homme.

    off to Amazon to see if they have 'Black Hole Sun' for sale as a single.

    I wanted to try Laguna pour Homme, but the tester was empty and they did not have another one.

    I thought Agua Verde was very nice for a "fresh" scent.

    The Salvador Dali pour Homme I sprayed on my arm is still prominent at 20+ hours

    It is extremely puzzling how it didn't last on you - I own Salvador Dali PH, Le Roy Soleil and Laguna Homme - and the Black Sun I tested is easily on par with them for strength and longevity.

    Agua Verde is the Dali scent I didn't buy because it had that "wasn't there" feel to it, as it kept disappearing off my wrist after about two hours.

    I am a bit fan of the original Salvador Dali and of Salvador. I wanted to like Black Sun but I did not have the time because it was gone within minutes after application.

    How would you describe Salvador? It's not a favorite but it's a lot like Azzaro PH which I think is meh too.

    I consider Salvador to fall into the category of Chypre Leathery. It reminds me of Versace L'Homme, with less vanilla and a more spices. The aromatic aspect of Salvador makes me think also of Romeo Gigli Sud-Est, which is dry and sharp, while Salvador is smooth.

    I received my shipment of Salvador Dali Black Sun today. The opening was the most peculiar of any fragrance I've tried recently, because for at least the first 5 minutes all I could smell was alcohol! Then as the alcohol smell began to evaporate, it revealed mint. Then vanilla. I really didn't know what to make of all of this at first, so I went about my business of cooking dinner. About 1/2 later I decided to sniff my wrist: and THERE it was! Basil, mint, incense and vanilla. However, the incense was fleeting, as was the basil. Two hours later I'm left with a very light fragrance that has a sort of freshness about it, the base of which holds the mint and vanilla in particular. (Actually the "mint" is listed as "minty green rose.")

    I'm not sure the fragrance is aptly named, as it doesn't smell dark or "Black." Overall I like this scent. The longevity is still holding quite well after 2 hours thus far, but the projection is minimal. Definitely a "personal space" fragrance, in the vein of Basi Homme or Escada Magnetism. I intend to give it another wearing tomorrow with full application of at least 3 or 4 sprays.

    Here are the notes copied from fragrancenet.com:

    basil absolute, Woody, vetiver, cedar leaf, black incense, minty green rose, geranium, tonka bean, clary sage, vanilla
    Snarky is as snarky does.
