I usually give Lorenzo Villoresi high marks for development--as evidenced by the orchestration of notes in Sandalo (from herbal lavendar, through tangy vetiver, through rose and sandalwood, to sweet amber) and Yerbamate (from citrus to rosewood to a plethora of greens and a bit of smoke, to delicate powder) so I expected the same from Piper Nigrum. It did not behave similarly; it started with a ton of black pepper which trailed off somewhat but still remained the dominant note from start to finish. I like black pepper, but this one had too much of a presence for me.
