Reviews of Bang

Sorry , but not my cup of tea.
It smells very in your face and potent , not apropriate to wear at all.
maybe for a car scent yes, not not for humans.
Cant find any occasion for this - not sprayed in more than 2 years now..

I don't see the point of this fragrance.

An ethereal burst of pepper followed by dry peppery woods. Extremely muted beyond the first half hour, and average duration. Moreover, this was released in 2010 when the peppery-woods genre was already well explored, and this brings nothing new to the table. One might consider Terre d'Hermes, Poivre Samarcande, Declaration, Honour Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Tam Dao, Lalique White, and Wonderwood as more worthwhile alternatives. For pepper (forgetting the woods) one might consider Piper Nigrum or Noir Epices (and several others).

Gimmicky more than anything else.

Decent pepper opening and then later dries to a very light, woody and tea smell.

I've heard Bang uses Iso E Super, so it didn't surprise me that the scent comes and goes, with sweet woody notes. It's never big on projection, always very light. Heat should help it project more.

I see this as a day time/office scent but seems versatile enough for most occasions.

Similar to Sentiment by Escada or maybe its Terra D'Hermes... either way it doesn't last very long... Maybe 60 to 90 minutes then its gone... Very disappointing. What scent you do get is very nice.

A masterpiece in my opinion that was sadly ruined by poor marketing and an even uglier bottle. Seldomly you'll come across a designer fragrance that smells more akin to something from a niche avant-grade house, but this is one of those fragrances.

In terms of presentation and structure, Bang heavily reminds me of a cross between a Comme des Garcons and Escentric Molecules scent. Linear, minimal, and just plain modern, cool (cool as in hip) smelling. It's just a blast of soft woods and pepper on an even softer base of vetiver. Call me crazy but it kind of smells like "tea." With a name like "Bang" expect the opposite, this one is a soft whisper behaving more like a skin scent.

If this came in an elegant, simple square bottle aimed less to the teeny-bopper crowd, it would of been a solid release. Sadly, it's discontinued now but you can still find it at discounters (at least for now).

So what can I add? It's nicely blended. It smells of Pepper. It is based on a typical woody amber Fougere. It lasts for about an hour, if you're lucky. You can smell it from about 3 inches away. It is more of a "Pfft" than a Bang. I bought my bottle in TK Maxx, as it was so cheap.
