All Prada Discounts, Offers and Sale - June 2020
That's good. I would forward that email to checkcosmetics as well, so they can correct their database. (y)
I've sent Beauty Base an email with the screenshot and a picture of the batch code, not sure whether I've entered the wrong details or not but i know the smell does not last. See what they respond with now....
That can't be correct as a friend has this scent and, hence, I know that the Bvlgari Man In Black was only launched in 2014. A quick search on Fragrantica confirms it was launched then, to celebrate their 130 years as a company. So it can't possibly be from 2001. Link: https://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/Bvlgari/Bvlgari-Man-In-Black-26358.html Probably wrong details entered in the checkcosmetics database.
Both are pretty different. Carbon is more Sauvage like. This is more Prada L'homme Intense type fragrance.
Given the fragrance is a little over 5yrs old, that doesn't look right at all. If that's 100% the Batch Code, I'd send that screenshot to Customer Services as it's not a real one. My latest bottle is 21J12D1 for instance which is a 2019...
I can confirm it's for the sausage carriers
Bought some of this on holiday last year, very nice and paid much more than this.
See...they all get lumped in as "Blue" fragrances, but I actually thing they're all really different. The common note is Ambroxan and they're all super-versatile...but from there, they actually go into some quite dramatically different directions. Prada Luna Rossa Carbon drops some of the peppery-ness of Sauvage EDT and has this almost bitter, industrial metallic note in there instead...this will sound oxymoronical, but it causes it to come across simultaneously a little more muted (in a good way if you're not the shout-y "look at me" type) AND more rounded. Both of those two are at least somewhat close, but to my nose (I'm literally say with them right now) they're really quite far away from Bleu de Chanel EDT (my personal favourite of the three). Sauvage is a loud Ambroxan bomb, Prada Luna Rossa Carbon is Sauvage with the edges sanded down...both of them are quite artificial (not necessarily in a bad way). Bleu de Chanel is bigger on the Citrus (Grapefruit) and definitely smells the most natural/well-blended of the three. Owning all three is by no means redundant purchasing, but if you put a gun to my head and asked me to pick one, it would be BdC EDT although I fully appreciate why others would plump for one of the other two. Prada Luna Rossa Carbon would be #2 with Sauvage EDT last... although this is 100% a subjective opinion.
How does it compare with Chanel blue?
Is this for men or women? I think it's men but the crazy perfume marketing writing makes it very unclear !
It's a really good line of fragrances... I think my favourite is still L'homme, but mostly because of its versatility. The soapy iris (minus the citrus in this one) makes it a great option year-round whereas this one is more of a Spring/Summer daytime option (although I'm not a fan of strictly limiting fragrances to Seasons...wear what you want, when you want, right?) Have you tried Intense? In the same way L'eau adds citrus to the original's clean, soapy iris to give a fresh, bright Summer-y vibe, Intense pulls in Tonka Bean (for sweetness), Leather and Patchouli (for depth) to push the line into a more complex direction - more suited for cold weather. Between the 3...they nail almost every scenario.
I dont know about anyone else but this smells better than the original I feel
Mine arrived today. Really please! Smells great and delivered in just 2 days. Will order from them again 😁
Used beautybase loads over the years they get some cracking deals.
I understand your reservations. For what it's worth, I purchased exactly the same Gift Set from John Lewis last year and the bottles/fragrances are exactly the same (different batch codes, but 100% genuine) Beauty Base have High Street shops across the country. That's usually a good sign that they're not selling counterfeits.
I have this. Very nice but could do with it lasting longer on me.

100% agree this is amazing with heaps of compliments. One of only a few I have 2 bottles of at one time
I have this and love the smell. Last all day and loads of compliments from people.
Mine as well and ive ordered different smell prada la femme intense. They must had error on sale.
Boo, order cancelled.....
I know ;( I’m off work at the moment so I’m spending like you wouldn’t believe. On the bright side I have got some great deals :D (lol) (lol)
Had a couple of bottles of this. If you like Sauvage and Ambroxan you’ll probably like this as long as you can get along with soapy smells (yeah I’m selling it well haha) . Not quite as harsh on me as Sauvage and seems more blended and a bit more metallic if that makes sense but not as in your face as Sauvage but it’s all down to what suits your skin.
What would u compare it to? Ive never smelt it. But tempted by the heat this has gotten
A lot depends on your skin as well. Versace Eros smells horrible on me, as if I haven't showered in weeks.
I don't need to Google it what you said about concentration is true but it doesn't automatically mean it's going to last longer
Didn't know they did online shopping plus c&c. Awesome!
What is longevity like on this?
I got this for £47.99 and OP refused to let me post the deal because it had been cheaper at £46.99 before so wasnt classed as the cheapest deal going! Brilliant smell to it though really like it
Nice smell but doesn't last. Pity don't do eau de parfum. Will stick with Terre D'hermes.
Ordered & heat added, thanks OP (y)
Works fine for me. Heat added.
Link not working
love this stuff, perfume shop still has the 100ml cheaper than the 50ml too
Showing as OOS for me
I use this and the smell is awesome (IMO)
Nice one cheers(y)
None around me ;( great spot though heat
Is this instore too?
None near me either but great price if you can get it!!
None in stock near me
Every time I see a deal like this it just reminds me of the steal of a deal I got paying £22 for 50ml of Black Opium at Boots :)
