Reviews of Black

Roberto Cavalli Black smells like Versace The Dreamer minus the tobacco leaf note. You're left with a pleasant, non-offensive, creamy lavender. Smells more like a casual scent than something you want to wear to be taken seriously. The opening is nice but the drydown leans into what you'd expect from cheaper scents.

The tarragon and vetiver combine to make Roberto Cavalli Black too soapy for me: I often like soapy fragrances but this soap gets a little close to artificiality – it’s not clean-soapy. It would be cleaner if the bamboo note came through more strongly. The geranium, too, could have been a savior, but it also does not clean up the light miasma of the musky lavender-tarragon. What R C Black needs is more green, or perhaps even some aquatic layering. It needs some sharper points to increase its bass depth... it needs more layers of interest.

Roberto Cavalli Black is not unpleasant; it smells fine, just as so many of the moderately priced men’s fragrances do. But its lack of depth (and its lack of longevity) makes it inadequate… you can find many better even at this price point.

Very good is very modern scent.the top notes is OK.intimate and masculine not for every day use.Nice straight-ahead fragrance without too much fanfare.suitable for romantic mood with your lover during the spring/autumn evenings.

Good sillage but longevity is poor for my my opinion RCB is the best masculine RC fragrance.

The Best Cavalli

the best and that's not saying a lot. semi spicy opening coriander/pepper that dries down to a powder concoction.musk/Tonka that stays somewhat close to the skin.decent slightly above mid range fans that does not do a lot of justice.

Pros: great warm and inviting
Cons: lacks depth"

Black is an outstanding fragrance. Smells unique, sexy and warm. Thats a very well done blend of tonka and lavender with touchs of cedar. Wonderful. My only complaint is about the lasting power thats weak.

I really like this one! This is a great for a party or in the evening (especially in the winter or autumn) If you like a spicy, peppery special scent, this is the winning ticket.

Longivity and projection are very good, thats a big plus for me because mostly fragrances last for like 5 hours max on my skin.

Ill give it an 8!
