The first time I sniffed BLV Notte Pour Homme from Bvlgari it was in 2008 and on that occasion I instantly thought of buying it. This represents the type of evening fragrance that possesses a powerful attraction, due to its sensual aroma of chocolate, employed in the base notes. Sadly, other priorities appeared and I had to give up the acquisition however this perfume remains as an excellent choice for a pleasant evening.
Bvlgari BLV Notte Pour Homme was introduced in 2004 as an oriental woody fragrance, developed by perfumer Alberto Morillas. The description from the official website mentions the phrase: “sensual and mysterious, BLV Notte evokes the captivating and seductive atmosphere of night time” and this is the kind of image that reflects the character of the scent.
BLV Notte Pour Homme starts off with an interesting blend of bergamot, cardamom and mint. Later, in the mid development, the aroma turns spicier and smoky, thanks to the tobacco blossom which is combined with galanga (an ingredient belonging to the spice category). Much later, the dry down reveals a dark facet, in which wenge (a dark colored wood) is infused with dark chocolate, for leaving an intense and long lasting trail. The composition is similar to the one employed in BLV Notte Pour Femme, its feminine counterpart, the two scents constituting a wonderful fragrant pair for a couple.
The bottle that encloses BLV Notte Pour Homme is faithful to the classic shape of Bvlgari perfumes. The transparent glass exhibits a blue shade that evokes the intensity of the sea water, while being topped by a silver stopper adorned with Bvlgari’s logo.
