Summary: This is my new favorite perfume for spring! Let me start by saying I'm Not typically a fan of florals at all! This one starts out with jasmine and hyacinth on me, I've always adored the scent of hyacinth flowers in the spring but have only very rarely seen it as a note in any of the perfumes I enjoy. The drydown on me is a light musky vanilla with the hyacinth and jasmine both still lingering quietly in the background.
Summary: First impression: gardenia and laundry detergent. Soft enough for work. With a name like Black, I was expecting patchouli or spices or even stronger sandalwood. Not soft floral. If you're a Fracas type, this is definitely not for you. If you like India Hicks (Crabtree & Evelyn), this may be for you.
Summary: For the name and the bottle, I expected something rich and heady and sensual. I got...weak, linear, watery jasmine. That's all: unimpressive pale jasmine. None of the rich white velvety beauty of Serge Lutens' A La Nuit, which is jasmine perfection. Very wimpy. I've seen Black at TJMaxx for $20, but that's even too much for this let-down of a scent.
Summary: hmmmm....tuberose....a lot of tuberose...not what I expected from a scent called "Black". I expected something more exotic. The opening on this was a blast of citrus. Then it evolved into a slightly citrusy white floral. Violets/tuberose/jasmine. This is a nice but somewhat generic mostly white floral scent. It does dry down somewhat musky. Black is inoffensive and could be worn to work.
Summary: This is an impressive tuberose-based white floral. I don't know where the title 'Black' originated, but this isn't a black, green, or red fragrance; this is a straight-up white scent. To my nose and skin, it is made for a tuberose lover. All other notes (like lemon) are built around it in such a nice, fresh, clean tropical accord, that the tuberose is allowed to take center stage.
Summary: Ok, first off, I am NOT a floral girl. I like patchouli, amber, sandalwood, and musk...dark, earthy scents that evoke ancient cities and ruined temples and, well, head shops! The closest I've ever come to floral is Fresh's Cannabis Rose, and that's still earthy as hell, right? So why do I love this so much? I was initially drawn to the bottle, which is just so chic and sexy, with that glossy black finish and the scrawled label..
Summary: I mostly smell gardenia in this. Ok I love the smell of gardenias. And my to favourites are Kai (like) and monyette paris (adore). But this smells very artificial to my nose, VERY sharp and the strong alcohol scent stays there for ever I even had to sneeze from it, I never get this from fragrances. I find there are so many better gardenia based fragrances out there that are actually creamy, sexy, natural smelling and comforting, just like a real gardenia is.
Summary: I got this at Marshalls for $20... what a steal! It isn't the perfume I would spend top dollar for, but for that price... wow! I think this is the perfect spring/summer everyday fragrance. It is light and doesn't last that long on me, which is good for work when you don't want overpowering. I agree that it isn't very "black" but more floral. My only issue with this fragrance is that it doesn't have a strong stand out smell to me.
