Black by Bijan
Bijan Black is a citric lavender with a musky sandalwood. In truth, this is an innocuous scent, but it falls on the pleasant side and could work rather well in an office environment or other close quarter situations when you want to smell "okay" and at the same time not offend with sillage.
There's no statement to be made with Black. It smells like hundreds of others that implement that modern day sandal-musk base accord. I am amused since this is the same house who created and released the original Bijan for Men. THAT is a scent where you better apply intelligently or ELSE. Black, it seems, could be over-applied with no ill effects.
I picked up a 75ml bottle with no box for $7 at TJMAXX and plan to wear it at work during the spring & summer months. I am ambivalent to its scent, but it will be an economical addition to the work rotation.
