All I can say is WOW! I have had this sample in my drawer for about three months and was not really interested in trying it. I got the sample from lucky scent at the recommendation of the SA. I really like the smokey spicy start. It is really pleasant. It has aspects of Gucci Pour Homme I, Le Labo Rose 31 with the smokey spiciness. I just put it on about 20 minutes ago, so I am not sure how it will dry down, but if it is like the opening this will be bottle worthy.

With so much smoke, Black Tourmaline is bound to be divisive. I happen to love it, but found so few occasions to wear it that I eventually unloaded my bottle. I have to agree that everything else I've tried from Durbano has been a disappointment by comparison.
Mazzolari Lui and Durbano Black Tourmaline - it feels good to know they are right there, within your reach, in your wardrobe..and know what? it also is good to have them when you just wanna lift the cap and smell the wonderful aroma around the spritzer or for that matter the smells it exudes when you open your wardrobe, ...but then the problem is, you'll hardly ever wear it. it's cruel.
