    Default Help, I can't stop wearing Bulgari Black

    My entire collection has been cruelly neglected since I purchased Black two weeks ago. I was underwhelmed at first (really, this is what everyone raves about?), but all it took was one full wearing on one day for me to fall in love with this stuff completely. I never thought I'd have a spot in my collection for a quiet, subdued fragrance, but Black is quiet and weird, like that skulking kid at the back of the classroom who always had something cryptic to say when you dared speak to him. And yet it's a loveable kind of weird (rather unlike that skulking kid), with a warm vanilla/musk base and just enough smoke and rubber/leather/nope, definitely rubber to keep things interesting. It seems to fit my mood like a glove, and never feels like the "wrong" thing to be wearing after I've sprayed it on. It wraps me in a subtle aura of scent that lasts for hours, without projecting across the street or poking me in the nostrils. I find myself reaching for it daily, almost without thinking. It's hypnotised me. This can't be healthy. MAKE IT STOP.

    I love BB. It turns your skin into Michelin tyres.

    BB is quite widely available in airports duty free shops, sometimes in the male fragrances corner, sometimes in the female fragrances corner. And BTW the design of the bottle is quite stunning.

    Same here. I'm in Ireland and it hasn't been on sale over here for at least a couple of years. I never got to try it either. I think I'm gonna have to go for a blind buy from the internet. I can always sell it on eBay if I end up hating it!

    It is also hard to find in the Netherlands.
    None of the big stores carry it.
    I suppose it is going to be discontinued.

    Is it in danger of being discontinued in the US and elsewhere? Is it a decent seller over there? It's definitely not in the UK/Ireland anymore, so I hope it's not the case that's it's gradually being pulled everywhere.

    Wait until you smell it on somebody else, and it's even more beautiful. You'll really be screwed.

    Discontinuation would be a travesty. If they do, I'll buy a full set of tires immediately.

    They have a tester sitting at the Harrods in Heathrow Terminal 5. Not sure if they have it in the one in London...

    Ok, I've just ordered a 40ml bottle online. It's a blind buy that I've wanted to make for a long time after hearing so many reports of this one. I hope I like it! Can't wait to try it at last anyway.

    Lol@subhuman85. After reading your gobsmacking review of Bulgari Black recently, I knew then you'd fallen hard for this masterpiece. I concur...it wears like a ghostly manifestation. LOVE it!

    Good for you! It's a pretty safe blind buy in that you probably won't hate it, but I think all the hype over it can engender some rather high expectations for that first spray. (I'm sure this thread hasn't helped in that regard. Sorry.) It's not nearly as crazy avant-garde or earth-shatteringly brilliant as some of the reviews would have you believe, but it's odd and wonderful in its own way, different from anything else, and superbly crafted. Give it a few good tries (like I did) before making a final judgment call on it.

    And Black is still listed on Bulgari's website, so it hasn't been discontinued...yet. I'd actually be surprised if they axed it, given all the praise for it within the industry and the notable Internet buzz (and blind buys). But it's hard to find pretty much everywhere, it seems; I found my bottle in the health & beauty section of a supersized grocery store, of all places. None of the department stores, perfume boutiques, or drugstores in my city have it, just this one damn grocery store, and it was marked down rather severely. Clearly it isn't a bestseller for Bulgari, although the SA at this store told me they sold more than a few bottles of it over the holidays. (A cult hit, then?)

    Oh, and I'm wearing Opium today - the weather here just seems to call for it - but that Black bottle was tempting me sorely.

    It's always in stock (40ml and 75ml) at Supaperfume.com

    I have a bottle but don't use it much. I agree with subhuman85 - it's not totally amazing.

    It's very much still available in the UK. Love this stuff. Nothing quite like it.

    I like the scent a lot but i feel that you really need to spare this on a good 20-30min before interacting with others or you will give off the rubber note. I don't mind it and actually have learned to love it but i have had a few occasions where i met up with some people shortly after appying and the reaction wasn't too great lol.

    I just which is projected a bit more, i feel like the only way you can smell this is if you dig your nose into your skin
