    I can't wait to try this. Sounds great and the bottle is a classy presentation.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    He's wearing the wrong watch!

    The spray mechanism on the bottle is in the style of their Bulgari Bulgari watches... and then they put the Sotirio watch on Clive Owen...

    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.
    LOL. I agree. Calvin Klein already used MAN a while back. Maybe they shd have named it Bulgari MEH.

    I think that people are afraid of offending someone so they want these light, out of the shower, liquid air type fragrances.....Bvlgari Man does seem sort of bland and this is the path that many houses have decided to follow.....I always spray a scent at the department stores and walk around for a while.....I used to purchase them right on the spot.....The fragrance has to last.....Many of the new scents just don't have staying power.....And when I hear words like modern and very light I also get worried.....As always I will wait to sample.....But my hopes are not very high.....Gary

    The notes remind me of L'eau D'issey pour Homme. Anyone else getting the same reference?

    They had a tester at Bloomingdales, so I tried it.
    Smells very light and transparent, sort of a combination of citrus, vetiver and light musk. A word "minimalistic" came to mind when I gave it a sniff. Seems like longevity might be an issue.
    Just my first impression.

    This is not surprising, since it is a Bulgari fragrance.

    Tried it yesterday at Bloomingdales when I went there to purchase Bang. Didn't really like it as it smells more like cloth or fabric than fragrance on my skin. Thankfully it was completely gone within half an hour.

    On the other hand, the SA gave me a sample of the new Kenzo Homme edt Boisee and REALLY liked it. Not much of a Kenzo "anything" fan but this one I liked.

    Aahhh, that's such a disappointment. I was really looking forward to this, if only for the bottle.



    What a shame

    I'll be in Atlanta on Friday. If I have time, I may stop in a mall and look for this and BANG. I'd like to sample each of them. With these two, it will smell very light on each arm if the reviews are correct!

    What I got from this was a less spicy, more floral take on Tom Ford for Men, with better longevity. Out of Bang, Bleu and this, I think I prefer this.

    My first impression is that this is somewhat similar to Infusion d'Homme. It isn't loud, but it does have decent longevity.

    I guess a lot depends on one's skin. I tried this at Bloomie's in San Francisco today and bought it. Looking beyond the marketing and the fragile male ego of some men, I tried to judge it on its own merits.

    First, let me say that I don't only buy the most wonderful scents. Some fairly mediocre scents are still good enough to wear to work, or on a routine day. I can't live with my head in the clouds all the time! I thought this was a bit above average middle-of-the-road scent, the kind of thing I could wear around people who don't like scents that project a lot. It is close to the skin (like a lot of the Bvlgari men's line, apart from Black, perhaps). It is modern and fresh, with the currently popular violet leaf accord, but it also has a nice semi-gourmand quality (the honey?) and it dries down pretty quickly to a skin scent that is nevertheless detectable to those very close by (a date scent, maybe).

    One of the SAs compared it to a combination of Bvlgari Soir and Bvlgari Black. I would have said Soir and Blue without the marine note. Soir, but warmer, not so off-the-top fresh, but more subtly so.

    In short, perfectly nice, but not stunning; consequently, perfect for when you want to come across as smelling (merely) nice (and not too much). It fills a niche in my wardrobe, along with a few others. Whether it's for you is for you to decide, but I would say don't dismiss it without trying it, and give it some time on your skin before you decide, as always...

    I have a sample which the Bulgari Rep at Bloomies gave to me. She noted that the official launch is scheduled for next month.

    The scent is a slight spicy woody fragrance - would be a great summer scent. Very sophisticated and understated.

    Sounds very common...I'll definitely smell it as i like Bvlgari's scents but I'm not expecting much.
    Guess i'll even buy it for the bottle alone.

    It's available in the UK in House of Fraser. I tried it on my skin.

    First off, sorry to mention it again, but the bottle is really nice. I love the way the tube is hidden if it's under the juice. Really nice.

    As for the fragrance itself, the opening is quite nice. Refreshing and light, with citrus, but it's pretty boring. In fact it reminded me a lot of their Bvlgari Pour Homme line.

    The drydown is where it goes downhill. It just smells like 212 Men. That metallic, grassy, citrusy smell. Sillage is actually pretty decent. I mean it's not a projection monster, but it's not as bad as say, Gucci Pour Homme II in terms of sillage. Longevity is also very good. It's been about 4 hours now and it's still fairly detectable on my hand.

    It's nice, but overdone really.

    Out Of Bleu De Chanel, Bang And Bulgari Man I think I liked Bulgari Man the best,
    I liked Bang but already have peppery colognes...I like Bulgari MAN because its not an aquatic but it is still quite fresh,
