    Default scents simila to Bvlgari Black?

    So far the list I have of fragrances that are similar or BETTER (more refined, sophisticated, masculine, etc) than Bvlgari Black is:

    Midnight in Paris Van Cleef & Arpels for men (similar)
    Aigner Black
    Dzing!
    Cavalli Black
    Kouros Body by Yves Saint Laurent
    S.T. Dupont Signature for Men
    Patchouli 24 Le Labo for men (VERY similar)
    Nostalgia Santa Maria Novella


    What else similar is out there for me to check out?

    Black has a nice rubber note. Some of those that you mention also have a rubber note, though others have more leathery or tarry notes (eg Dzing, an animalic leather, or Patchouli 24, which has a potent tar note), which are broadly in the same family.

    Other leathers gravitating in a similar area are Knize Ten (leather and amber) and Rien (stronger, more synthetic leather). More rubbery, Vierges et toreros or Etro Gomma.

    Of course, Black is excellent and I'm not sure I can define any of the other "better".

    Cacio said pretty much all but I'll add

    MAC MV3 and Habanita (which for some reasons I perceive as a sort of ante-litteram Black)

    I would vote here for VC&Arpels Midnight in Paris (EDP version) as being the closest to Bvlgari Black, even it's a tricky resemblance: on my skin VCA has a more pronounced tonka-leather-incensy allure from the very first application and BB delivers a black tea(rubber)-citrus which evolves very nice into a velvety leather-vanilla scent.
    As about Aigner Black (for men) I think it's not too close to BB, being a straight sweet-musky-leathery blend without vanilla.
    If I had to choose between these 3, I would choose instantly BvlgariBlack ('you can't fight with love at first sight', isn't it?)
    "I love fragrances because they provide a sheer endless variety: there is a scent for every occasion, mood or feeling. Standing before my collection in the morning matching a perfume to my needs is one of the most enjoyable things in my day"..... I don't want to miss that
