    Default Difference between Bulgari Black and Fahrenheit Absolute?

    Any insights?

    One smells like a baby powder truck crashed into a tire shop while the other one smells like a mechanic shop with synthetic oud leaking seeping from the walls.

    Total agreement here. And the leather-clad chick driving the truck was drinking hot black tea!

    Well, I like Absolute much better than Bvlgari Black. Actually I don't like black much at all, the rubber started getting to me, Absolute was nice though, I feel like it kept the spirit of Fahrenheit while darkening it up a good deal.

    Absolute almost has a chocolate note in it. Totally inedible chocolate. Very nice. That's the part I liked.

    I was able to get past the rubber thing in BB by concentrating on the tea, the smoke, and the floral notes. Together, they keep my mind busy, and the rubber becomes less annoying and more intriguing.

    I perceive a more distinct, playful sweetness in Fahrenheit Absolute, while Black - though marketed as "unisex" - keeps the sweetness in balance as part of a great olfactory composition. While I enjoy Absolute's interesting top notes I lose contact with the fragrance very soon (it thins out significantly on me); Black on the other hand stays fascinating and substantial throughout.

    FA has violet leaf and a big slug of cumin. BB has no spice or green character
