I stink - therefore I am!
Not another rose-oud combination from Mancera or Montale... Of course that was my first thought. And shortly afterwards: what... the... luckily another rose-oud combination from Mancera!

On paper, his recipe for success is quite simple for my taste. You combine an extremely high-quality rose oud bouquet, leave out most of the Mancera/Montale hairspray aesthetic and - very, very, very importantly! - mix in a good portion of white, creamy lipstick iris a la "Dior Homme Intense" or Guerlain's "Iris Ganache". And there you have a monster in front of my personal master! Creamy, light chocolate meets the usual oriental killer combo, which I would never have believed that one of its reincarnations would be able to flash me like this again. But "Black Prestigium" does it! A real night driving avenger. Deep black and powerful. Light purple lamps on. Minimal leather vibes. Never boring, always classy. Plays three leagues higher than its price. Oud properly balanced. A fragrance that booms and has bass! It makes your nose water - and not because I have allergies at this time of year! A powerhouse prowler. Always wicked, slightly dirty, filthy, just the right amount of time without washing. Incredibly sexy. A perfume like a Synthwaveslasher! At the very beginning it is slightly pungent and even here the Mancera synthetic does not disappear completely - but that is really short and only gives marginal deductions. It shouldn't be too ringy and soft anyway. Apart from that: exactly to my taste! He's a maniac. Maaniac. Maaaniac!

Flacon: I don't even resent this (always the same) flacon...
Sillage: on the verge of overpowering - but it knows exactly when to stop...
Shelf life: >10 hours is already nice

Conclusion: I'll keep it short and sweet: for me, this is the best fragrance Mancera has ever released. And it's a rose-oud combo! Holy moly! But (by far) not only that. Mancera Homme Eternal. "Black Prestigium" plays in my personal top class!

A parody of Dior Homme Intense/Parfum
This starts like a parody of Dior Homme Intense, sweet and woody, strong, artificial, and decidedly unpleasant. There is also a cloying rose, very sweet yet sharp. At this point it's a rather obnoxious scent. After an hour the smell dials down dramatically and becomes tolerable or even borderline pleasant, in an exaggerated yet classic case of a bad fragrance becoming better with time. Or maybe not a classic case - after it plateaus, it keeps going for a long while on a typical EDT level in the transformed form.

Both the scent and the initial performance drop are similar to Just Jack Mystery, which is a fragrance you've never heard of and will never hear of again, and for a good reason. Black Prestigium is sharper than Mystery, though. It is also similar to Armaf Club de Nuite Intense (woman), which is supposed to be more spicy if you were to believe Fragrantica, but really is not. Black Prestigium is just more woody and sharper. As regards the purported similarity to Dior Homme Parfum, it is hard for me to believe that a top of the line Dior perfume would smell like this.

Promise kept
He does not pretend to be something completely different, he is what he is and that's good! The perfume is on the whole quite simple and uncomplicated, the rose always remains in the leading role and between come nuanncen. I find that it gets through the oud a gourmand touch a little what I personally do not mind ... I have already tested many rose / oud combos, and this one is absolutely successful. In terms of sillage and durability is very good, you can not complain. Would buy the me again blindly, thumbs up :))

Stinging-Flower Monster
The scent is very pungent / floral / spicy / slightly citric. But for the fact that it is floral it has a really decent shelf life and sillage. It remains perceptible around 10h+, changes slightly in the first half hour, but stays the same afterwards, which is not a bad thing, as the scent already smells really good. However, I would rather save money with the sprayers because of their strength. Less is more here.
The bottle is beautifully designed. Only the screw cap confuses me from time to time ^^

All in all a good smell :)

For me it's a Black Aoud with iris and little vanilla. Not as heavy as Black Aoud, easier to like. I don't really smell any DHP similarities

Black prestigium, wild cherry mancera and black perfecto guerlain are like I wear the same perfume. Same sweet dark fruity-floral smell.
