Bulgari Black Perfume

Bulgari Black - eau de toilette for women and men

Black by Bulgari - "A bold, unique fragrance, Black is intensely urban in spirit, evocative of the vibrant, creative nature of the world's great cities. Sophisticated, sensual and darkly intriguing in its scent. Black is unconventional, a fragrance conceived around the smoky, woody notes of Lapsang Souchong tea, that celebrates the pleasure and freedom of expression. A fusion of cool, stripped-down design in high-tech matte rubber with a chrome cap and transparent glass."  --bulgari.com

Scent Lust
It doesn't take a degree in science to know that some scents evoke lover (er, make that lust) more than others. We asked Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez, coauthors of Perfumes: The A-Z Guide (Penguin), to pick the five sexiest perfumes of all time.

Bvlgari Black by Bulgari
Smells like: rubber plus leather. "With those notes...you do the math."

Perfumes in article:
- Bond No.9 Chinatown
- Guerlain Insolence
- Chanel 31 Rue Cambon
- Etat Libre d'Orange Secretions Magnifiques

Bvlgari Black Perfume
Allure - Oct. 2011
Bvlgari Black Perfume

Heavy, sexy, spicy, and usually wintry -- with a whiff of Middle Eastern souk -- these scents were born to be dabbed on the cleavage.

If you like... Guerlain Shalimar - Contains most of the vampy, genre-defining oriental artillery, including patchouli, sandalwood, and musk.

Then try...
Yves Saint Laurent Opium - An oriental carried to the incense-y '80s max.
Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle Noir Epices - More woody and less sweet than many of its spicy relatives.
Donna Karan Cashmere Mist - Lush and soft, with lily of the valley notes.
Bulgari Black - The gritty urban cousin, it smells like a beautiful, intoxicating brew of tea, smoke, and rubber.
Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan - Often mentioned by perfumers as their favorite perfume, it smells like sex (no joke)
