Through a glass, darkly. Black Phantom is a unisex woody gourmand that will please just about everyone. Its topnotes have a dangerous glitter to them, like a glass of rum rimmed in cane sugar set alight, sending sparks of roasted nuts, caramel, booze, and smoke out into the night air. Once the boozy fireflies have dimmed a little, a gentler accord begins to bloom – a wonderfully soft, nutty sandalwood that reminds us of caramelized pain de mie dipped into warm milk.
But despite all the foodie notes, Black Phantom is not thick or heavy. Shot through with wisps of woodsmoke, resin, and roasted coffee, Black Phantom is clearly a gourmand aimed at more adult tastes. Imagine a cozy Parisian café on a cold, rainy day. You are reading a book and sipping a milky coffee with a drop of rum on the side to warm your bones. Delicious aromas of pralines, fresh pastries, chocolate, toasted nuts, and coffee melt waft over the papery vanilla smell of your book and the bitter almond posies of heliotrope on each table. Now imagine the undertow of a really good sandalwood that smells like salty butter and sweet cream. It really doesn’t get better than this if you love grown-up, unisex gourmands.

This cologne is the one! Compliments on top of compliments and it has great performance. Get your nose on this one.
Glad I got to sample this, I've learned not to trust the hype. For me the chocolate and coffee notes are pretty subdued with a powdery scent and for me that's a deal breaker . Definately sample before you buy a full bottle.
My initial thoughts are I love the darkness of the Chocolate and Coffee. Real deep fragrance.
This is the best site to purchase samples. Although my last purchase which was Kilian Black Phantom was a little bit messy. I ordered a 6ml, and the bottle top was not tightened down properly, or the top could have had an defect in it. Long story short, I lost about 1/4 of my juice in transit to me, but I'm an realistic guy and I know things happen. We are all human at the end of the day. It was no big deal, and I still give this site five stars, and I'll still recommend this site to anyone. I'll also continue to do business with these guys in the future. Peace and be blessed everyone.
