    Default Bvlgari extreme, extremely good formal?

    I've heard quite a lot of praise for Bulgari Pour Homme Extreme as a great formal scent. Is it worth a the hype and a buy?

    Bulgari Black is the only one worth owning, if you were to only own a single Bulgari. A better fit for 'formal' might be Tom Ford Extreme or Boucheron Pour Homme or even Tiffany for Men.

    I love Bvlgari extreme, it has gotten me many compliments over the years. I think it's extremely versatile and works well on a formal occasion. It's subtle yet classy at the same time. It doesn't have monster projection but the longevity is very good. Definitely worth checking out.

    I was just going to start a thread about Extreme This was sitting on the back shelf at work and I am trying to try all the frags I always just pass up without giving them a chance.

    I have to say I REALLY liked Extreme! Very classy and lasted a LONG time.. like well into the next day. Doesn't project incredibly well, but I found myself getting whiffs of it every so often. So I am basically just repeating what Checker just said.

    The Bulgari line does not get much attention at my store since we don't have a rep come in to push it so it will only get some play if ppl actually come in and ask for it. I am going to make sure I show this one to guys who are looking for a classy, subtle frag.. what I tend to call a Boardroom fragrance

    Give it a try.

    To me no. Instead I'd buy Voyage D'Hermès, Bvlgari Soir, Prada Infusion D'Homme or Roadster.

    Coincidentally my scent of the day today!

    Although I really like this, I don't find it particularly 'formal'. In fact if anything I would suggest that it's more of an informal choice. Despite the 'extreme' moniker, it's pretty light going in the projection department and I would imagine that in a room full of formal people all wearing fragrances, Bvlgari Extreme would be pretty lost.

    I perceive this scent far more like a casual gourmand, rather than suitable for formal wear

    I love this one-- as well as Pour Homme and Soir (and actually, I enjoy everything in the Bulgari line, except Aqua and its flankers, though they're actually not terrible for aquatics). Extreme is really good, though the grapefruit note can be a bit difficult at times, whereas Pour Homme and Soir omit this note. I would definitely find this suitable for formal occasions.

    Can't see why not. Pleasant and versatile like all Bvlgaris.

    The original, extreme, black, and soir are the best from the Bvlgari line. I do not care for the aquatics and Bvlgari Man (which is putrid IMO)
