    Default Opus 1870 by Penhaligons

    Has anyone tried this one?

    The producer describes it as "Spiced black pepper gently infused with a luxurious accord of English clove rose amid warm woods and musks".

    I just got a sample and I like it, what do you think?

    No, I haven't tried it, but it sounds in-freakin-credible. (I'm a spice fanatic.) Is it unisex? Sounds like it.

    Latrelle: "Isn't he only on the second floor?"
    Peggy: "Yes, but he hit his head on a lawn gnome."

    I bought a bottle in Salzburg and like it very much. The manufacturer's description is accurate (it's quite peppery for a long time), and the combination of pepper and floral I find to smell very aristocratic.

    It's a comforting,warm, woody, musky fragrance. Lovers of Burberry's Touch for men will like it.

    It is very very peppery, and I find that that is the only note I can detect for the first hour or so after application.


    Its a nice change of pace scent for me, however I'm more of a fan of their Endymion.

    All pepper in the opening really strong with great sillage, the clove rose comes in well into the midnotes and drydown.
