    The Eau de Baux and Bulgari Black are both excellent imo. I think the EdB works better in cooler weather (the vanilla can be cloying in hot dense air), where the Bulgari can be easily worn by anyone at any time. The Burberry Brit is not bad either, but I think the other two are modern classics. In the US, testers of the Bulgari and Burberry can be found online rather inexpensively, and the L'Occitane isn't too expensive either. Don't know your situation or pricing in the Philippines, but I'd buy all three, or at least the Bulgari and and Eau de Baux.

    Brit is not bad but it is too quiet on my skin. Black is overrated IMO. EdB is excellent. An incense vanille scent with good quality, great longervity and sillage. It also can easily be weared in any season.

    Black and You da Boy.
    You da Boy in cooler weather and nicer clothes, for me at least.
    Black works well with anything anytime, including casual shorts/tshirt under a scorching sun, if applied in moderation.

    I don't think you can go wrong with Bvlgari Black. It's a great choice. Eau des Baux is a bolder choice in my opinion. For a cool fall evening, it'd be my pick.

    Eau de Baux smells good, but it's longevity is poor. Bvlgari Black smells good and has very good longevity, it's also a hell of a lot more interesting than the other two.

    Burberry Brit for Men by Burberry - Upon application, one is greeted with a spirited, spicy citrus, furnished by the green mandarin, bergamot, ginger and cardamom. This zesty confluence meanders to its middle, where a spicy wood, from its cedarwood and nutmeg, joins in creating a pleasant, vanillish aura. This melange is slowly infiltrated by the lovely, wild roses, adding a powdery dimension to the heart. As the citrus dies away and the heart's spicy sweetness prevails, it joins the strengthening base, with its grey musk, tonka bean and oriental woods, to enhance the powdery vanilla superimposed on a woody, musky background. This pleasing and complex composition renders a clean and fresh vibe, and has good projection and longevity.

    I enjoy Black and EDB. Both would be worn by someone who enjoys vanilla. Not a fan of Brit, it would be worn by someone who enjoys baby powder.

    The rubber note in Black is an acquired taste, and I have clearly not acquired it.

    I love Eau des Baux, but the Cypress wood note can be a bit sharp at times, a bit "pencilly".

    So my favourite of these 3 is Brit. Very Powdery, but more like Sherbet than Baby Powder. Always puts me in a good mood.

    Eau De Baux - sophisticated gentleman
    Bulgari Black - non conformist artist
    Brit - businessman who thinks that he smells good but is just example of averageness in everything (sorry lovers of Brit, it is decent fragrance but not breathtaking and heavy on synthetics)

    Ooh, tough one! Bvlgari Black and Eau Des Baux are both excellent! But they're both so different. Honestly, you need to sniff both so you can decide. If you like incense, EdB! If not, Bv Black. But, like I said, they're such different scents.

    ...as for Brit? I'd pass.
