Apple Juice and peppermint, with some pepper thrown in. Doesn't smell bad, but not something I would buy
Bang Bang by Marc Jacobs, 2011
Rated #3644 in Fragrances
Very nice, even nicer than just Bang. It's softer.
Thicker than the original, less cold in character, not cold at all in fact. Reminiscence of the original is felt, however this version is much more developed and upgraded in almost every sense. Thumb up from me, maybe even a part of my collection someday.
Anytime I see this fragrance on a shelf I can't help myself from reading its name as Gang Bang, I'm sorry. Bang Bang, it's called Bang Bang! Whatever... I would classify Bang Bang as an attempt to compose a fresh "sandalwood" but considering the current restrictions on raw materials I sould probably say it results more like a sandalwood wannabe. That being said, Bang Bang is far from being interesting. Probably not as bad as the majority of modern masculines around yet extremely far from catching my attention. Smewhat fresh, citrusy and woody with a remrakable amount of clean musk. As Luca Turin would say "pleasures written in six-point type".
POWER! To my nose, this smells of pure dry spice and heaps of pepper. Smells a little like gravy with woods thrown in. I can understand why someone would like this because it has great sillage/projection and the spice makes it really masculine, but I find it a little too over powering and peppery, almost to the point of uncomfort. For people who like a scent to 'develop' and change, which I think is a ridiculous way of judging a fragrance, this doesn't. It's just a huge splash of woody/spice/pepper and the smell just settles down - no changes here.
This is an almost totally different smell form the original Bang. To my nose , this fragrance basically smells like orange, specially at the top and mid notes , and pepper , also present in the original fragrance .This is more herbal and slight. I prefer the original Bang .Anyway , this is a good fragrance .
Basically i smell a starting blast of aromatic greens and pepper (pepper is the characterizing element as well as normal in the style of the "Bangs"), a notable (almost bombastic) note of patchouli and a structural cloud of synthetic musky amber very soft and decently appealing. The scent is bold, aromatic and masculine because of the high level of dry spiciness. The mildness is moderate despite the notable amount of amber and vanilla, a certain white radiance exudes from the blend despite the high level of spiciness that, on the side of patchouli, darkens a bit the musky cloud. Some powdery woods imprint further whitness to the dusty cloud. In the general desolation of the current new olfactory creations for the great market this one is at least a bit appealing and with a decent level of masculine sophistication. Not bad.
