Yesterday (sorry, couldn't post yesterday as was away from a computer all day) my girlfriend bought me the 2 ounce bottle of Bulgari Man. I absolutely LOVE this scent. When I first tested it on a card I thought it ho-hum but after getting a sample and giving it a real wearing or two I fell head over heels for its dry and sparkling white woods, the wonderful bergamot opening, the inky black combination of lotus and violet leaves, the subtle but seductive honey note. This is undoubtedly going to become one of my most highly worn casual/everyday scents.
I should mention that I got about 150 samples (I didn't get to individually pick them, they came in a huge bundle), about 95% niche recently. Bvlgari Man was one of the few designer scents in the bundle, and at the time I received the sample I thought I disliked the frag from the one time I tested it on a card at the store. After sampling just about everything in that bundle, I can honestly say it's in the top 10, if not top 5. Not objectively, of course. I won't try to argue that its ingredients are of better quality or what not that many of those niche scents, but the combination of notes here, and especially the balance achieved by Alberto Morillas is just perfect to my nose. It's as if this scent was made just for my skin.
And if you're reading this, hello hon. Thanks again for the wonderful scent!
