    I'd rather stay with the ones listed in your thread title than this - just my opinion, but glad you like it.

    I own it, I love it. I've been singing it's praises here on BN for a while, but no one seems to listen.

    If you have the other three, that's a good thing. But if you never tried them, you might want to get samples.

    I must agree with the above. It makes me cringe. Their new launch at bed bath and beyond is pretty bad too.

    Yes, I have the other three brands but this Black is something special for me. Very uplifting and very versatile fragrance.

    I have a sample. I thought it was pretty average, more in the Millesime Imperial style than any of the other 3 you mentioned. there was a note in there that I really liked, perhaps it was the "lotus", who knows..

    I think it's nice and it's certainly popular. How did you find the longevity?

    I got about 6 hours average just one spray. I still can smell it close to the skin for several more hours after that.

    One of the acquisitions I made prior to getting into the fragrance game. I was impressed with it at the time, and I'd still argue that it's a very likable inoffensive scent. HOWEVER if I wanted to go with a crowd-pleaser I feel like there are just so many better options that don't feel so... pedestrian. Black is a fine fragrance in its own right, and the pride is certainly right, but after getting my hands on some masterpieces, I never saw myself wearing it again, and I gave it away. Still, can't argue it isn't one of the best fragrances available for $35
    Current Top 10:
    1. Leather Oud- Dior
    2. Black Aoud- Montale
    3. M7 Oud Absolu- YSL (I really REALLY like oud)
    4. Green Irish Tweed- Creed
    5. Cuir de Russie- Chanel
    6. Straight to Heaven- By Kilian
    7. Aventus- Creed
    8. Pure Havane- Theirry Mugler
    9. Shalimar EdP- Guerlain
    10.Body Kouros- YSL

    tbh, it's good but nothing special.
