    Default Avon "Black Suede" - Cologne

    Has anyone ever smelled this? One person called it the most sensual fragrance ever. However, wanted to get others' thoughts. Thanks.

    Was surprised to find out that this can be obtained for as little as $8.

    Shhh...don't spill the secret! Now everyone is gonna buy out Black Suede!

    Well, Black Suede Touch was a sweet, thin, linear juice, lacking longevity. Perhaps this one is much better but I wouldn't rush to try it.

    I'd rate it as one of the most pleasantly gourmand scents ever, but strictly as a personal impression

    My 2 cents: Black Suede Touch has a better rendition in Bogart pour Homme, and Black Suede has many notes in common with Stetson, this being more floral, having more longevity and complexity. I'd rather choose Bogart and Stetson.

    I like Black Suede is good floral oriental musk scent. Its never loud but it last and stays in your personal space. A classic for just $8.00.

    I agree 100% with scentimus. This is a great scent, and it smells like it's a lot more costly than $8. It's probably my favorite floral oriental. If you like old-school powdery oriental frags, get it.

    Well what exactly does it smell like? Any other cologne you can typify it to?

    Probably an Old Spice kind of idea. Anyone have the notes for it?

    It's sort of (not completely) like Knize Ten; it's an old-fashioned, powdery leather scent with a prominent nutmeg note and some powdery floral notes. For the price, it's excellent, but if you're into something more modern-smelling, Black Suede probably isn't what you're after.
    SEEKING BOTTLES OF:

    Aramis New West (preferably old bottle)
    Patrick by Fragrances of Ireland
    Azzaro Aqua
    Gloria by Cacharel

    PM me if you have bottles that you're willing to sell or trade!

    It's been a huge seller for, what, 25 years?, for good reason: It turns women on. And that's because under (or over) the traditional and very nice meld of fragrance notes, it smells like clean, warm male skin right out of the shower. Yummmmmm. PS--Use it with a fairly light hand, please.
