The Kenneth Cole Black is a unique mens cologne that has become one of my favorite fragrances to wear. A detail I wanted to mention before we really started getting further in this review is that there is also a Kenneth Cole black aftershave balm which is not what we’re reviewing in this article.

I just wanted to clarify that in case that might be what some of you are looking for.

Now that we know got that out of the way we can focus on reviewing our featured product for this article.


  • Comes In One Size (3.4 Fl Oz)
  • Ladies Love It
  • Can Be Used For Casual Or Romance Wear
  • Not Overly Strong Scent

Kenneth Cole Black takes a different approach to its cologne in my opinion and that’s shown as soon as you take a look at it.

Cologne manufacturers have been making their colognes where you can tell they put a lot of focus into the design of the cologne bottle and also having a complex pronouncing name which might possibly entice buyers.

This cologne looks to take a more basic approach with a very simple packaging look with an even more simple name.

I know I can see you saying it now that you don’t care what the cologne looks like just what it smells like but I just wanted to talk about the product as a whole. Let’s move onto the important part then.

Do Women Like The Smell

This is the one question that can literally make or break a product such as this. If the ladies don’t like it then what in the heck is the point of wearing it, right? Well I can say that this cologne has not gotten as popular as it has by women not liking it.

From my own personal experience this has easily become one of my top 3 favorite colognes to wear when on dates because of the amount of sheer compliments I get from my dates.

Does It Smell To Strong

Some colognes smell great but are just to dang strong which makes others not want to be around us.

With that said this is another main concern for cologne buyers whether or not the cologne is overly strong on the nose. It’s somewhat strong but it’s not overbearingly strong.

I like to think of it as being noticeable but also modest as well. What I’m trying to get at is that its got a good balance of the two.

What’s The Difference In Kenneth Cole Black & Black Bold

Just somewhat recently (5 months at the time of writing this) Kenneth Cole launched one of it’s new cologne fragrances called Black Bold.

This had me very confused on whether this was the same fragrance just a new version or if it was an entirely new cologne.

As far as I could find out the regular KC Black isn’t being replaced and black bold is basically a new cologne just with a way to similar name.

I can’t comment overall on the KC Black Bold because I only used it once so I’m planning to buy a bottle of it soon to be able to give it a chance to impress me.

Overall though the regular KC Black is an outstanding cologne that really got me noticing the Kenneth Cole brand more in terms of their fragrances so I highly suggest at least giving this cologne a try.
