Cold deformation - bottle and fragrance
Bang Bang, a bottle that catches the eye, blue metallic shiny and a fragrance that polarizes. The bottle is an eye-catcher through and through.

Shortly before I separated from Bang, the brother, because I could not carry him. Pepper, pepper with pepper was the reason.

Now then Bang Bang, citric-peppery-woody-metallic cool. That's right, pepper again. Even if it does not appear in the pyramid, it is perceptible. Spicy, citric, sweet opening, followed by a sweet, peppery, woody fragrance composition in the main fragrance. Sandalwood, and not too little of it. I associate metallic coolness with the scent, paired with woody peppery tingling in the nose. Like I'm gonna bite into a steel lantern with pepper and lemon. Responsible for this is the sandalwood, which was abundantly used as the main component. Unfortunately, I do not always perceive this impression as the most pleasant in the nose.

I don't want to answer whether he was rightly hired or not.

You don't look a gift horse in the mouth, so he can stay in my collection now.

A striking masculine fragrance, with corners and edges, just like the deformed blue bottle

Similarity to Charriol Sport
This is identical to Charriol Sport for men, both have same color of bottle, except MJ cased with metal front and back but you can still see the sandwiched glass in the middle while Charriol is glass bottle. Both has decent staying power and yes its nice for daily wear.

Hit Me Blue!
One thing can be said about the house Marc Jacobs - they transfer, like hardly anywhere else, the gender role upon the appearance of their bottles. While the ladies' perfumes are adorned with flower tops and are playful, colorful and round, the bottles for the men's line are clear, distinctive, uniform and edgy.

With "Bang Bang", what could be more fitting than the image of a blacksmith's apprentice who, in the process of reducing his hormonal and power surplus, is striking the glowing iron with an extra hard blow? Here the imprint of the label was delivered with a bang, the metal shows a distinct deformity. One hopes silently that the fragrance would fulfill at least half of these expectations. Whatever Marc Jacobs wants to convey with the choice of color, I could not say. At any rate, both the blue bottle and blue packaging compete and shine in the same shade of deep metallic blue. More than the edgy bottle, it is the color that makes the attraction.

Contrary to my expectations, the scent does not reveal itself as a blow to the stomach, the kidneys or the solar plexus, or a straight line punch to the middle of my face, but with a very fruity citric note. It is also fairly sweet and has a slight spicy freshness - which immediately reminds me of 'Juicy Fruit'. But only briefly, because after that I smell fennel and a soft sandalwood and a still softer and warmer musk note.

Not much more happens after that. Think of feet that fell asleep rather than great artistry in perfumery. But the notes fit together and make, separately and together, an interesting and distinct masculine scent. With that, the sillage is rather weak and only clings around the body, and a bare 6 hours of longevity on my skin is only nearly enough, considering the existing fragrance components.

What is left after all these impressions? A fragrance that can hardly be a reflection of the martial power of the bottle, nor does the color permit a reference to the scent inside, when speaking in the language of colors. Nevertheless, "Bang Bang" is not a bad scent. But you would have to threaten me with blows - before I'd go and buy it.

A sugary citrus scent, perfect for young men
I really fell in love with Bang when it first came out, with its rich peppery woods and modern masculinity, so I guess I expected this flanker, Bang Bang, to be along the same lines as the original. I was quite surprised and impressed when I discovered that it was an entirely different composition, much sweeter than I'd ever imagined.

Bang Bang opens with soft, sugary lemon and a hint of spice. For the most part, the top notes exude an interesting sparkling crispness on the skin with a touch of green notes peeking through. At this point Bang Bang is intimate and subtle.

The heart makes way for more intense spiciness with the introduction of the cardamom note. However, the spices aren't too full-blown here, partly due to a milky powderiness that tends to dominate the composition. The sweet, citrusy lemon accord thankfully remains.

The drydown becomes milkier and sweeter still, with sandalwood and musk concluding a rather unique fragrant experience. If anything, Bang Bang could be unisex, but it certainly wears well on a man. I would know, especially seeing that I purchased this for my lover boy only last week.

My man loves sweet scents, and Bang Bang satisfies his cravings without making me nauseous in the process. The sillage while intimate, is in no way a reflection on the lasting strength, which was impressive to say the least.

For a bit of an aggressive bite, I'd choose Bang, but for something less in-your-face, Bang Bang does the job nicely.
