On me, this comes out as a blast of sweet floral. I didn't get the black pepper at all.
I will update this review if I happen to wear it again and not wash it off after an hour, as on paper it smells quite alright. It happened to remind me of Touch by Burberry, not my favourite type of scent hence the neutral review. I initially bought this blind as the notes seemed interesting to me, I would advise to try before buying!
