Reviews of 360 Degrees Black for Men

While not a huge fan of cardamom-heavy scents I do enjoy the opening of this one. This is probably due to the subtle brightness in the accompanying ginger and spice. I almost detect citrus.

I don't get much in the middle and base beyond the nutmeg and suede. But the fragrance has a mutative character to it that I appreciate even if the changes are basic.

This fragrance is safe for most occasions, though its character is a touch heavy for really warm weather. It has a life expectancy of around 5-6 hours.

It's a good backup fragrance for the office or for a date. But I wouldn't reach for it ahead of many other bottles I have on the shelf. I probably won't buy another bottle when this one goes.

Scent: 6/10

Longevity: 5/10

Sillage: 5/10

I am a long time fan of Perry Ellis men's fragrances. I go back to Perry Ellis for men original (1985) and have followed several of the house's series, such as Portfolio and 360, among others. And here I give a thumbs up to one of several flankers in the 360 series.

360 Black comes across as similar to 360 White, though spicier and deeper. A cursory sniff reminds me of the typical Jean-Paul Gaultier Le Male fresh oriental scent quality, thanks in large part to the presence of nutmeg and basil which contribute to this. Yet 360 black has nuances that are fascinating when beheld: Smooth suede, smoky sweet tobacco, the brightness of ginger and cardamom, and ultimately the solid amber foundation upon which it all sits.

It thus goes beyond a mere Le Male imitator (although 360 White comes closer to that, IMO); what we have is an artfully crafted spicy-oriental cologne that, upon closer examination, has its own character worth a look. And at most Ross department stores, you can swipe up a 3.4 oz bottle for less than $20...why not? :^>

Not bad at all once the drydown kicks in. The opening can be a bit harsh, but then it evolves into something sweet, warm and inviting. Perfect for cooler weather, but not completely out of place in a warm setting. Seems to be versatile enough. Projection is ok, longevity is pretty good, maybe around 6 hours. Good value scent, but there are others out there in the same price range that I think are better for the same purpose.

A sweet spicy evening fragrance. I find this a bit nondescript. Lacks the WOW factor totally for me. 6/10.

I'd like to know who is doing the perfumery for Perry Ellis, because 360 white, black, red, reserve, "m", as well as numerous other fragrances are excellent. Don't listen to any naysaying about 360 black which claim it's a cheesy remake of La Nuit del'homme or Rochas Man. Not at all. It is in the same vein as those fragrances but very high quality and very distinctive in its own right. A gentleman posted that it's similar to 360 white but with tea/spice notes, and that is an excellent description. It certainly has serious gourmand attributes. I found mine at Ross for $12.99 for a 1.7. I've confidently worn it to work as well as a night out at the club. I can't say that about too many of my other fragrances.

This hits me with a sweet, honeyed caramel, dark, rich vetiver and goes on giving for half an hour, after which it calms down, but still lurks in the background.

This is most similar to Caswell Massey's discontinued VETIVER.

Those who like their vetivers dry, smokey and pungent - or - green, sharp and bright - had best look elsewhere.

However, I love it. I was bereft when C-M discontinued their VETIVER and now I have an equivalent again.

The elegant black bottle is a classy and striking design as well.
