Fifi Men's Popular Appeal [Seduction in Black by Antonio Banderas]

Our new internet provider (I'm naming no names) has installed broadband without the wifi box. Why would anyone do that? Rather than being free to blog on an already overcrowded kitchen table, I have to kneel on the floor with the computer perilously balanced so the cable can reach. It's like having a car without the petrol tank. Couldn't they just have installed it all together?
Anyway — back to the task in hand; my self-imposed Fifi challenge. When my children ask me what I was doing when the British democratic process was crumbing, what will I say? 'Merrily blogging about perfume award nominees'?

So, the struggle goes on, and time is running out. The lovely people at Puig have sent me a bottle of Seduction in Black. This is the list of nominees in the Fifi Men's Popular Appeal classification:
Playboy (Coty)
Seduction in Black Antonio Banderas (Puig USA, Inc.)
Super Samba Man The Perfumer’s Workshop Int’l., Ltd.
The notes for Seduction in Black include citrus, bergamot and cassis, cardamom, coriander and nutmeg. And the base includes wood, oriental amber, musk, cedar, tonka bean, ambery notes and musky notes. The spicy middles notes — cardamom, coriander and nutmeg — are gorgeous. They give the fragrance a middle-eastern flavour.
There's stil time to vote, and lots of different categories. Here's the link.
