Piper Nigrum
Becoming unabashedly passionate about a fragrance is becoming a rare occurrence the more I explore the world of modern perfumery. Without any doubt there's a fair number of fragrances I can appreciate or flirt with, but falling in love with a fragrance on a permanent basis is a completely different matter. Lorenzo Villoresi's "Piper Nigrum" is one of those few scents that, upon its initial application, made me exclaim: "Wow, what a delight!"

My first impression of Piper Nigrum was that of an explosion of herbal and spicy notes, namely mint and star anise. When I say "explosion", I don't mean a punch-in-the-face type of blast, but rather a fresh and invigorating one. From the very first moment it becomes crystal clear that you're dealing with an exceptional scent. As it continues evolving, its notes gradually settle down. Clove together with the nuances of spice, nutmeg, rosemary and oregano dominate the heart while the base, which is Piper Nigrum's calmest stage, is composed of woody notes, amber and cedar.

What draws me to Piper Nigrum the most is the fact that throughout its development, it manages to maintain its sublime spicy-herbal character. In spite of its name, Piper Nigrum evokes rather than contains the smell of black pepper. I find it perfectly wearable, especially in the cold days of autumn/winter. A true five-star fragrance!

Spice gardens!
A beautiful blend of sharp notes of Black pepper, clove and mint. Very refreshing, sets my head to a relaxed mood. I feel like walking trough a small garden with spices and green notes. In the drydown I smell sweet amber too. Excellent for warmer weather. Good sillage and longevity. An ultimately masculine scent in my opinion. I really like this!

One Of The Best Spicy Scents On The Market...
Masterpiece by LV. Black pepper, culinary spice over a relatively dry amber base. Smells very unique, but in a very comforting and invigorating way. I find it difficult to find occasions to wear Piper Nigrum, but when I do, it is always a special event. Great stuff and easily worthy of a 4.5 out 5 star rating!

Lovely pepper scent, refreshing but with a powdery touch in the drydown. Very refined and natural. Good scent, not so good performance.
