Reviews of Blackpepper

Are you looking for PEPPER; front, center, and throughout? Then stop; you found it here. That's what I wanted when I was testing others (Bang, L'Occitan, F Black), and finally landed on the mack daddy: CdG Blackpepper. Wore it yesterday and received two compliments. I only wish longevity and sillage were better, but overlooking those are easy when your fragrance smells like this; just carry around a decant to re-energize.

It indeed opens up with a strong hit of pepper grinder black pepper. I timed it, this blends in with the rest of the scent in 35 minutes. Before that it is a bit of an unbalanced overload, though interesting and not unpleasant. Doesnt scream, sits down relatively early. Fairly clean, woody, and peppery. Polite and well mannered. It definitely has pepper, but seems to be of a somewhat nice generic woody base it sits on. More up than down, and it was close, but im gonna fall in the neutral category.

Right from spray-on, I feel like my nose is right on the top of a pepper shaker - without the sneezing fits!

Pepper is dominant, with akigala and cedar woods sitting right underneath the bright spice of the black pepper. Tonka is really slight, and musk is nicely balanced and sits atop the pepper, adding an after shower soapy clean feel.

Leave it to Comme des Garcons to create yet another fragrance that feels familiar, right, and just makes sense! I agree with others that CdG's Wonderwood appears to inhabit this scent, having a very similar dry wood feel that is instantly recognizable.

Light, pleasant, sensible woody-spice quality that I find to be very wearable and not just some culinary abstraction. Pepper is the theme throughout, even after it starts to fade and let the wood duo take over and mimic it.

A recent Xmas present!!
An amazing smell!!!
I love it!!
Where you been all my life!!

Problem One: For me it has average longevity (3 hours on 2 sprays)
Problem Two: People cannot smell it from afar (skin scent), but close up the scent is very very strong
Problem Three: The bottle cannot be balanced!! I mean it!

Despite all this I rate it high 9/10 ... I just have to spray loads throughout the day (one way I guess for a company to sell more bottles)

Spicy-woody.

One of the best openings of freshly cracked black peppercorns, photorealistic quality. This show endures for ten to twenty minutes. Thereafter a familiar plot takes over. Cedar, slightly sweet, slightly musky, slightly smoky, in the style of many other CdG fragrances.

The dry down is pleasant, comforting, almost like a light cashmere shawl that clings to one's skin. However, it's also somewhat boring and commonplace, and not as interesting as, for example, the development of 2 Man or the original.

This is for fans of black pepper, and CdG fans. This probably won't cut it for fans of stuff like Piper Nigrum. This is also substantially better than the average niche release in 2016.

Sillage is low-key but one keeps getting occasional wafts till the end. Duration is good compared to other CdG fragrances, and is about five to six hours.

3/5

Blackpepper opens with one of the best notes of crisp, freshly cracked black peppercorns on the market. This lasts for about 30 min, and fades into a lightly sweetened, dusty/smoky cedar accord that's very pleasant, soft, dry and versatile. It smells great. The base is indeed reminiscent of Wonderwood, which is a good thing.

Unfortunately, it's a skin scent after about an hour, and has faded to near imperceptibility within 2-3 hours.

So although I think the pepper note is a great addition to the Wonderwood base in terms of smell, I have to advise sticking with the predecessor based on longevity, and cannot in good conscience give a thumbs up.
