BVLGARI – Man In Black Essence: an ode to the wild seduction for an infinitely sensual pleasure.

BVLGARI – Man In Black Essence transports us to the heart of the African continent and strongly expresses a primal yet elegant and magnetic masculinity. 


Warm, virile, addictive and wild, the new afrodisiac oriental signature created by Alberto Morillas takes on an exotic dimension and is imbued with a fascinating warrior intensity

The fragrance liberates on top a captivating and contrasted energy. The juicy and vivid freshness of bitter orange fuses with the burning hot addiction of sweet rum. A vibrant elixir that creates an impactful intensity and troubles the senses.
The two main themes are warm, gourmand-style woods, with tonka, rum and cocoa creating a deep, rich and almost liquorice-like character, against a backdrop of soft iris powder. I really like it and it feels like it lives up to the earth-coloured patterns that adorn that gorgeous bottle. 


BVLGARI have teamed up with Nigerian artist Laolu Senbanjo (Laolu NYC) who is famous for his “Afromysterics” art, which uses pattern to display the mystery of African thought. It’s this style of pattern that appears on the bottle and it’s really beautiful. It’s so refreshing for a perfume brand to showcase the work of an African artist in such a visible and striking way.

BVLGARI Man in Black Essence is available in 100ml Eau de Parfum
