Thread: Bvlgari MAN

  1. #1

    Default Bvlgari MAN

    The notes include bergamot, violet Leaves, lotus blossom, vetiver, cypriol, white woods, sandalwood, cashmere wood, vegetal amber, benzoin, white honey and musk. People who tried this scent say that it is very light, fresh, but fresh in a modern and rather untypical way. The perfumer is Alberto Morillas.





    The face of Bvlgari Man is Clive Owen.


    The interview with Morillas about the perfume.

    I am sure I will try it. But I am not expecting much based on their other men's fragrances plus a description of this one being "light, fresh and modern".....

    Wow. Will this be replacing the ageing (1994) legendary Bulgari PH?

    Will certainly try this one!

    The 'interview' with Morillas is cringeworthy though, marketingblurbs, but of course geared to the general audience behind that camera.

    I don't think Bulgari invested much in the $$/ml material costs of this scent, like all modern designer scents. I just hope it's better than Bulgari Aqua Marine or Bulgari BLV PH.

    Meh.

    I will try it, though, based on the house's generally positive track record and the perfumer.

    All the other notes sound interesting, but I'm tired of those violet leaves, as well... hope it won't be prominent

    I agree... It looks like a generic designer woodsy fragrance. But yeah, Bvlgari ph Soir is one of my favorite black tea fragrances, so I'll give this a try.

    Good thing Morillas isn't the face of Bulgari Man. He reminds me of Grandpa Munster. Bottle looks like Dior Homme was the influence. White honey and lotus blossom sound appealing, but they will get buried in the mix by the violet, white woods & vegetal amber methinks.

    When is this juice out for consumption?

Of noble hearts, I am the noblest - and the most generous of those that yearn to give love in return. - I am a human being, I love death and I love life."

    Sounds interesting, I have to try this one. Bvlgari always holds a special place in my heart, BLV is the first bottle of perfume I've bought and I've got so many sweet memories related to it.

    Both Bvlgari Aqva and Bvlgari Black are fantastic. I like how all Bvlgari fragrances have a distinct 'Bvlgari Family' smell. Might this be a response to Dior Homme's success?

    Morillas has created a number of scents that I've loved, and quite a few more that I respect. My guess is that - at a minimum - it will be something that a significant percentage of us like.

    I thought he sounded genuinely excited about the creation - even if he was dropping the usual words ("modern", "sexy", "woody"). That's nice. I also thought it was interesting that he mentioned the appeal to women. Also the way he threw in "classical" at the end. It will be interesting to see if there is some kind of nod to folks who go for that sort of thing (not that you would find any of them here, cough, cough... )

    Yes, Bulgari has a bunch of great scents. Hoping this one joins them!

    Can't wait to try it. Bvlgari is one the few designers that consistently put out quality, and unique stuff. Bvlgari PH is still unique after all these years and remains a personal favorite.

    Bvlgari MAN... that's the best name they could come up with? Aren't there enough similarly named frags to confuse all but a memory expert taking Ginko?

    How about something less serious but more memorable - THOR by Bvlgari. Bvlgari Atmosphere. Meltemi. Fresco. Charisma Water. Colossus - Whatever! Anything but this "Man", "Homme", "Pour Homme", "L'Homme" BS.

    I agree with you. I've been rather impressed with Bvlgari and I'll definitely be keen to sample this.

    It's for people who buy their fragrances based on labels/marketing. That way they will know it's not some niche sh*t or girly fragrance, and they won't have to worry about their pee-pee falling off if they wear it.
