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.

Blackpepper.
The opening here is so very close to Freshly Cracked Black. It has nuances of sweetness of the berry.
This quickly moves to the Wood/Tonka base which becomes almost a soapy sweet canvas.
As others have said it's intensity disappears quickly. As a background the wood has an interesting soft Synthetic feel, very pleasant.
The best part of this is the opening, which is more rounded than my reference, Armani Bois d'Encens.

I prefer the Armani with it's dry austerity of dusty Black and White.

Those looking for a dark, peppery fragrance that's done right will have found it in CdG's Black Pepper. It's blended well, and is never over-powering. Certainly does share Wonderwood's base, but is quite a bit better than that. Vaguely reminiscent of Or Black in feel and tone, but whereas that was in leather, this is in pepper and a woody-cedar, the same dark vibe is present.

I'm going to give this a mild thumbs up because though the scent is really great, it's just not strong enough and requires more sprays than I think it ought to. Somewhat overpriced also, but aren't they all these days.

This is a nice scent. I don't think it is amazing but it is pleasant. Has a dry, peppery opening. Wood notes develop, and it gets very smoky. Then, the oud asserts itself for an "old sneakers in the sun" flourish. Settles into a very safe, crowd-pleasing wood and light musk scent.
