    Default Sexy, Suave & Sophisticated - Aigner Black


    i was totally caught off-guard with this one. i expected yet another designer frag with a blast of citrus and what have you. but this, this ones different.

    First thing one would notice when they spray this one is the "refined" approach. it doesnt attack your nostrils with those overwhelming top notes+alchohol, no, nada, instead this one attacks ones senses in a way which is most pleasant and welcoming. the mood is definitely dark, like black satin..the fruity notes, quite controlled, there is a velvet like note of plum blended with utterly delicious notes of fennel, pink pepper with hints of anise ...i'd do anything for this phase to last forever. it's that good! i can't help but tell, i felt totally "superb & refreshing" when i wore this. there is this amazing aura of positiveness in it. very confident in approach. By Mid notes, a very powdery accord of musk on leather sweeps in adding to the depth of the wonderful top notes. The interpretation of Musk & leather in this scent is not like most (designers) out there, there is an air of mytery about it. by base notes, this scent swirls up with lovely notes of musk & amber sprayed on leather kinda accord and stays that way...

    i can't help but give this one good 8-10 sprays...i would always be in a mood to pamper myself wiht this one. a big assed thumbs up.

    p.s. pls pardon any spelling or grammatical errors..will correct it later...

    How bizarre, I wore this for the first time in ages yesterday and really enjoyed the experience.

    I agree, it's a lovely fragrance.

    I have often wondered why the Aigner fragrances get such little attention on Basenotes. The few reviews they've gotten are overwhelmingly positive.

    How's the sillage with Aigner Black? I tried Aigner In Leather Man the other day, and the scent was great, but the sillage was extremely weak unfortunately.

    I really liked it when trying. But I found it -as you correctly observed- rather dark, and that's not really my world in the sense of buying it. But again, it deserves attention.

    I was discussing Aigner scents with matthewfoo. He's tried several from the line, and he recommended this one above the others. He said it reminded him a bit of Banana Republic's Slate.

    Another scent which really isn't black .
    Its a nice one , but really nothing special .
    I certainly wouldn't shell out rrp to get one , infact your better of with Jaipur or other orientals .
    Overall I have so far found the early releases by Etienne Aigner far more complex , unique & rewarding ...
    sorry to burst the bubble guys , for those contemplating >> try before you buy .
