TOP peppery wood scent!
When "Bang" was unfortunately discontinued by Marc Jacobs a few years ago, I was looking for a replacement of at least equal value. I was recommended "Black Pepper" by Comme des Garcons with the remark that this fragrance is a bit more complex and would not have the weaknesses of "Bang".

To 90% both scents smell identical, whereby "Black Pepper" actually seems to be a little more complex, i.e. reveals a little more than a pure pepper scent. By the way, both fragrances use the artificial "Pepperwood" created by Givaudan, a captive. Not many fragrances use this unique ingredient, and in combination with other substances such as cedar, musk, very little patchouli and tonka bean, the result is a wonderfully peppery-woody scent that is unparalleled, but not found!

Unfortunately, one has to add after a few hours and the Sillage is also to be classified as rather discreet, but the overall verdict is absolutely positive!

Pure pepper
For a long time I was looking for the perfect pepper scent. Due to some recommendations here in the forum I couldn't avoid testing Comme of the Garcon Blackpepper. So I bought a bottle of Berzerk and started the first test. Hardly sprayed on, the fragrance opens with an extremely intense aroma of freshly harvested and then ground black peppercorns. After half an hour, this dominant, very one-dimensional fragrance gets some company from a slightly sweet, dusty and also slightly smoky cedar chord. Only this mixture makes the perfume bearable for me. Fresh, crispy pepper notes on one side and the soft, dry cedar scent on the other. Embedded in a frame of musk and tonka bean, this fragrance composition lasts about five hours on my skin, then quickly becomes close to my body and unfortunately fades quite quickly afterwards. For this reason, I can only describe the durability as average, while the projection over the entire fragrance process is very pleasantly restrained.
Conclusion: Whoever loves pure pepper is in perfect hands with Comme des Garcons Blackpepper.

Ecstatic sneezing followed by hot forest eroticism.
At the opening I always have to sneeze but it's worth getting the handkerchief out, because what follows is an extraordinarily erotic, hot, all senses stimulating scent. If the pepper combines with the high quality woods and musk with sweet Tonka is added, then I can only say: Holladiewaldfee... if I meet a man with this scent, then (*******ZENSIERT**********

Pepper in the forest & Sweets Deluxe
A freshly ground pinch of Madagascar pepper lies in the forest on a purple blanket sprinkled with sweets. Sounds a little bizarre now, but that's exactly how Blackpepper from Comme des Garçons smells to me. The perfumer Antoine Maisondieu has really created a very complex fragrance here, which nobody imitates so fast, the pepper note dominates at first but is then caught up by the cedar wood, Akigalawood and tonka bean, and sounds pleasantly warm soft with musk chords. A self-contained scent chord system that can hardly be surpassed in creativity, innovation and "savoir-vivre"

An opening, which provides for free noses
I only came across the brand "Comme des Garcons" by chance when I was looking for a fragrance that I could get for Christmas. Well, and once you're in a perfumery, you spend a lot of time there, as long as you're not harassed - no, I'm also talking about customers and their bad habits - quite a lot of time.

So I came across the scent and sprayed a little something on the test strip to almost get a sneeze attack afterwards. Hossa ... what an authentic pepper. Here's the name program, but so by. Is he like that all the time? No ... fortunately not. After all, as someone who is supposed to wear this scent, you are not a marinated steak that is thrown straight onto the grill.

What's next?

After about half an hour, the pepper will wear off a little, but it will always be present. The way he does that, however, is now a much more pleasant one. It takes about two hours to register how warm the fragrance can become. The cedar wood provides sensuality, which is underlined by the tonka bean and the musk. No way it gets too sweet or too loud. The pepper is still there, but not too strong, but still noticeable.

We have a fragrance that frightens you at first, only to achieve a sensually warm sweetness a little later, accompanied by a slightly peppery spiciness - a great fragrance for autumn, if it weren't for its shelf life. It might, just like Sillage, be a bit stronger, but that seems to be a general problem with "Comme des Garcons".

If you have never used freshly ground pepper you do not really know what pepper smells. This is the best black pepper scent I've ever smelt!

The peppery note is very noticeable and the sillage is quite good. Unfortunately the design bottle, although refined, is uncomfortable

Apart from the first 15 mins (that do exactly what it says on the box) this is a solid contemporary masculine all-rounder. Poor projection.

Initial pepper charge is the most interesting. Then- a bit of everything: dry woods, CdG synthetics, a pinch of smoke. Sometwhat indecisive.
