    Hope this would be more innovative than Carbon, which was 90% copy of Sauvage....The bottle is nice indeed.

    I really like Carbon flanker as to me it is Sauvage minus irritating bubble gum note I'll most definitely give this Black flanker a try!

    From the notes I so wish this would go in the direction of TF's Noir EDP or LIDGE, a very dark and musty smell with sweet undertones and a strong woody base.

    Ugh it's so tiring people saying bubblegum notes in stuff that smells nothing like that since it's the current meme

    This!

    I feel like they deleted the old Extreme / Intense / Whatever and split it into Luna Rossa Sauvage (Carbon) and Luna Rossa Anthracite (Black). They sure know how to churn this franchise to keep up interest!

    They should have kept at least the part with Prada in red imo. Now it's more of a Prada Luna Black.
    I have the Carbon from last year and will at least sample this one also.

    That bottle... I own Extreme but it's amazing what a color change can do.

    I own the original Luna Rossa in the newer bottle...damn...the all black look is clean.

    Probably a blind buy for me.
    Move on. It is just a chapter in the past, but don't close the book, just turn the page.

    Any news on the U.S. release for this one? They have it listed now on the Prada site but no real information.

    On that official site it is named simply Prada Black... strange. However it seems that the new flankers demolish the original idea of Luna Rossa.

    Tested it a couple of times already. Reminds me of a mix between Luna Rossa Sport and Luna Rossa Extreme. Spicy sweet is how I would describe it. The opoening reminds me somewhat of Tam Dao edp though there is no evident notes' overlap. In the drydown I get some Joop Wow / CH Men echos. Good persistence. It's likable.

    Where is this available to test? I have looked and I can't even find any Euro sites selling this one yet.

    At the beginning it's at least rather different from the nowadays usual designer crop. But after about two hours it turns into some unremarkable sweetness - nothing to write home about.

    So odd release from Prada. Smells close to Rossa Sport, but smoother and more powdery with enhanced tonka. I sprayed Sport on the right arm and Black on the left one. Similar smell, though Sport is brighter and more citrusy. 30 minutes later Black becomes ambroxany, skinny and very elegant; Sport on the contrary is still screaming.

    However, I don't understand the aim of Black in the Luna Rossa line. Maybe they decide to discontinue the Sport soon.

    Saw this at Nordstrom's tonight, but they didn't have a tester bottle yet. Will have to wait a bit longer to try...

    This looks awesome, and isn't it interesting, a Luna Rossa without lavender which is almost a signature of the line.

    Why intense and extreme seem necessary is mysterious. Dulce & Gabanna Blue is beautiful. They made an extreme which is similar, not so strong, and... lost the beauty.

    tried only on paper,
    Fairly pleasant but nothing spectacular.
    Also, nothing particularly black, noir, dark, edgy or strong
    Agreed with Anton - its powdery.

    Thinking the Luna Rossa line is not to my tastes (best one I tried was maybe Carbon). Vastly preferring the conventional Prada Male scents (amber, PH etc)
